Factory Styled Replacement Steering Wheel
Complete with Horn Button & Ring
Black for Color Co-ordinating your Interior
Measures 15 3/4" outside edge to outside edge
Horn button measures aproximately 60mm in diameter
Our stock replacement Black Volkswagen steering wheel comes with a chrome horn ring with horn wire ground screw and tab, a
Wolfsburg Crest horn button, horn ring mounting kit with screws and washers, and a 1962 to 1970 cancellation ring with mounting
hardware. The wheel can be used on 1971 models, but the included cancellation ring must be removed and a 1971 and later ring (sold
separately) must be installed for the horn to operate. The steering wheel is an excellent reproduction of the original VW steering
wheel and is made with high quality German resin for durability, strength and good looks that will last. The wheel is an exact match
to the 1962-1963 OEM steering wheels that have notches for the horn ring and will fit 1962-1971 Beetles, Karmann Ghias and Type 3
Squarebacks, Notchbacks and Fastbacks.
Our Expert's Take:
These original styled Steering wheels are ready to install and when it comes to the look and feel of driving a Vintage VW, the steering wheel is where you get to literally feel your connection to your VW.
