Question for you Willys experts..........buried in the pile of stuff in the back of the '48 wagon that I recently purchased was a three spoke steering wheel complete with a horn button with the Willys logo on it. I have not seen one of these in any Willys so far. Anyone have any idea what it may have come out of? An Aero maybe?

It's been 30 years, but my 40 Willys coupe had a 3 spoke wheel......could be something like that!

Actually, the color is not pinkish as the photo shows, must be the flourescent lighting in my garage. In the sunlight, it looks more of a cream color. The Surrey wheel in the photo does look indeed very similar to my wheel, could be, I'll do some investigation into that. Thanks.

I am not positive but that looks like a jeep surrey steering wheel. That would explain the color and the three spoke design. Could be quite valuable if it is.

Elvis owned one, he liked it so much while filming "Blue Hawaii" he bought it and brought it back home to graceland. It is on display there apparently.
My image of Elvis just took a big hit :lol: :lol: :lol:
The horn buttons look different to me.
