a new Rim Blow Steering Wheel for my 70`Toronado

Postby omo » Thu Apr 23, 2015 4:23 am

Hi there,
last year i´ve bought a beautiful 70´Toronado. Everthing works, except the airco.
During the last wintertime i´ve restored the original rim blow steering wheel. the old rim blow switch did not work, it was cracked and the rubber feels nearly like stone.
So i removed the steering wheel, repaired all the cracks, did some new paint.
As well i´ve build a new wooden decor ring for the steering wheel. A new switch did i found at virginiaclassicmustang.com. I had to cut it on the right length but without problems.
Now it looks like a new original GM Rim Blow Steering wheel.
look at the pictures.
If there is anybody who want a new steering wheel for his Toronado, send it over and i´ll restor it.

Hi Tom,
Looks very good. I have a 1969 Toronado and I'm situated in the Netherlands.
What will this restoration service cost?
Regards. Neil

Hi Cees,
There are not many people restoring Toronado rim-blow steering wheels and these do look great. I have restored my own steering wheel but without the rim-blow switch I installed a push button under the black rubber centre. I was more interested in the wooden part on the rim.
Hallo Cees,
Er zijn weinig mensen de herstellen Toronado rim-blow stuurwielen en deze ziet er geweldig uit. Ik heb mijn eigen hersteld zonder de rim- blow switch, ik installeerde een drukknop onder de zwarte rubber center. Ik was meer geïnteresseerd in de houten stuk op de velg.

excellent job on the steering wheel what did you do or use for the plastic piece that goes around the whole wheel and had that gold detail stripe. adam USA

little more information would be greatly appreciated since every rim blow wheel owner will need some sort of restoration on it!
