Deluxe Steering Wheels

During the early 1960’s, deluxe appearance options on GM trucks were slowly increasing in popularity. Though trucks were still basically purchased as workers, a growing group of buyers were requesting more deluxe features. Extra disposable US income meant more money to add to a new truck purchase.

One very noticeable appearance option was the deluxe interior on Chevrolet light trucks. This package included a steering wheel with chrome die-cast horn ring and attractive center. To save tooling on this slower selling option, Chevrolet used a wheel that was already in production on their automobile. The 1960-65 truck used a wheel from a 1960 Belair. The 1966 deluxe cab interior changed to 1965 Nova steering wheel.
