Original 1970 GSX Steering Wheel

    I am selling an Original 1970 GSX Steering Wheel. It is a used wheel with probably 70% of the grain left. There are a few areas where the grain is smoother then other areas and the wheel is pretty hard. There are also areas where the "fake stitching" has been chipped off in the center of the wheel. The past owner must have been wearing a ring to do this. It's not perfect but it is still a respectable looking used wheel. It was also a bit sticky, but has been cleaned.

    This wheel is a number "1" wheel. I believe the number 1 is a date code for January. (I had an April car with a number 4 wheel) This is also the only number 1 wheel I have seen, and if that is the date code, it would work for all the 70 GSX's.

    I have taken out all the scratches on the front side and polished up the back like I do on the repros that I make.

    I have 4 people interested in this wheel and will list them at the end of my description. I felt the best way to do this was to post the pictures here so everyone could see them, as I don't think anyone has sold one of these on the board, and many people have probably not seen an original.

    I will be contacting them, in order, to see if they are still interested. Again, this is not a perfect wheel but I am not selling it for between $1500 to $2000 either, which is what a correct grained perfect wheel is bringing, regardless if it is NOS or not.

    This wheel is being offered at $700 plus the ride, so if you are interested you can say so on this thread and will be in line after the people I am listing below. It is located outside the Philadelphia area.

    The guys in line are;
    1. mrolds69 (Frank)
    2. StageIII (John Fritz)
    3. Redmanf1 (Nelson)
    4. Ryans-GSX (Ryan)

    Thank you for your time
    Duane

    Yes, it's pretty nice. I have kept it all these years just in case I ever bought another 70 GSX. It is the last original wheel that I have.

    PS. I just sent you a PM about some shocks. You might want to call me.

    The wheel is tentatively sold to Frank. If it doesn't pan out, then I will post that here.

    Thank you for holding my 2nd place in line Duane,and congratulations Frank, a wee bit jealous of course (lol) but anxious to see it on your car.

    I'll stay next line in case one falls out of the sky : )

    Everyone have a nice weekend,

    John,
    Don't give up yet. Frank is also in line for a repro wheel, so if he gets one, you still might end up with this one.

    The one on my GSX is missing so I am also waiting on one. I figured no reason to post inline with frank and john in front of me. I did not know where I was inline :)
    My GSX is still in the body shop so that gives me a little time to find one...

    Boy do I have a deal for you.
    I talked to Frank today and let him know he is 1st on the list of repro GSX wheels and will be getting his wheel sent out in a couple of weeks. (I needed to check the list first.) He has agreed to back out of the sale for this original wheel and is passing it on to you, as he is getting a repro wheel.

    I want you to PM me your address and I am going to ship the wheel down to you. I want you to check it out and make sure it is OK, and that you are happy with it. Once you let me know, we can talk about money.

    I don't think you can get a better deal then that.

    Thank You Duane for keeping that rare piece safe all these years and also Thank you to Frank for being a stand up kinda man.
    Excited doesn’t cover it & when my car is ever sold the true GSX wheel will not go with it beinstead to a worthy & equally passionate Buick recipient (not that I am worthy “We’re not worthy!” Lol)
    Such a thrill,thank you both once again.
    PM per request with physical address on the way Sir Heckman! (My HERO!)

    Most sincerely,

    FritzenXgrippin out!
