Can anyone give me info on getting my original woodgrain wheel restored? It is in excellant condition(not bent)but the grain is almost all gone.It looks like a plastic applique although I always thought it was real wood.I am in the Tampa,Fl. area.

Poppy,
Mustang Monthly did an article on restoring woodgrain steering wheels. I will take a look through my magazines to see what issue it was for you.

PoppY!! Your searching has come to an end!! Is Seffner close enough for ya'!! AUtomotive Specialties restores the 65-67 woodgrain wheels to a level that CLOSELY resembles an NOS wheel! I have one on my 65 GT and it is beautiful. The color and grain is perfect. The MMonthly article featured a wood replacement which is not right. In time, the wood contracts a bit and doesn't look that great. {opinion} They have also done a woodgrain 68 deluxe wheel for me and that is excellent. Not sure of the price but you'll have to check it out for yourself. The co. name is Automotive Specialties,1-813-623-6968

Mustang Monthly also featured this co. in a wood grain wheel resto when Tom Corcoran was the editor. It was about 10 yrs. ago. After being sold to Jimmy Buffet, the car changed hands again and ended up in S. Fl. The wheel still looks great.
