Finally back, the popular Vintage Styled Banjo VW Steering Wheel! The Black Banjo Steering Wheel features 12 banjo "strings" in 3 groups of 4 that connect the center of the wheel to the metal reinforced outer wheel. The black wheel has a 15.5" diameter and has finger grips on the back edge. The Banjo Wheel includes a Wolfsburg Crested horn button and requires a separately sold (available in the options above) steering wheel adapter to fit either 1954 through 1959 Beetles and Karmann Ghias or 1960 through early 1971 Beetles, Ghias and Type 3s. You must remove the center horn button to install this wheel.

Note: If your 1971 model has a wiper switch on the steering column, the steering wheel will not fit.

Note: This manufacturer does not mask the spokes during production. Each steering wheel will be slightly different, but the images below show typical examples of enamel overspray on the spokes.
Banjo Spokes can have enamel coating.

This does not fit Type 2 (Bus) models. EMPI does not offer an adapter for Bus at this time.
