How’s it going Samba friends,

New to the forum and first post! My father and I are restoring a 1973 beetle and are getting to the interior stage of the project.

If anyone is selling a ‘73 steering wheel or has any recommendations as to which VW steering wheel fits. We’re trying to keep it as original as possible.

Any help/suggestion is greatly appreciated! Very Happy[/quote]

Welcome! A great resource is the Samba "Classifieds" at the top of this page. Just about every part of a '73 can be found here. Enjoy your journey.

PM sent. I grew up in Miami and most of my family still lives there. I visit as often as I can during the year, Covid has screwed this up completely.

Hi Arty21. I just happened to see this steering wheel in the classifieds. This is what your stock '73 steering wheel should look like (unless you have a special edition model like the Sport Bug).

Welcome to Samba!

Would bondo be a good choice to repair the cracks in my 73 steering wheel?

I think Eastwood has a steering wheel repair kit.
