I have same request on a steering wheel. I just picked up another '65
Midget for my son from a lurking lister near Cincinati.
Steering wheel is there but the welding has melted the plastic on rim to
virtually nonusable condition, and has too much flex.
any '65 era steering wheels out there ?
I've noticed an increase of new spridgets in lister's inventory, and a lot
of new first drives. I just took my first drive of this '65 that was too
good to part, but had been through a couple of questionable renovations.
Two block drive, felt brakes leaking out a rear cylinder and back into the
First drives on "new" LBC's sure are a smileable experience!

Subject: Steering Wheel Needed
We are in need of a steering wheel for our 65 Sprite.

we recently obtained...that's a story in and of itself!) and move her about
An original, good condition and reasonably priced wheel is preferred, but
if we cannot find that, anything that fits and is of the "we tight" price
range would be useful.
Thanks for listening,
Bill & Cindy
P.S. Whatever became of the windshield sticker/decal idea? Did we miss the
ordering phase or did the concept never come to fruition?
