14" Steering Wheel Option for a 66

I'd like to install a 14" steering wheel with a close to an OEM look.

The Grant 963 with a GT Performance install kit is the option I'm considering but plenty of mixed reviews on the Grant. Some love it, some say it's a POS.

Are there better 14" options for a 66 that look similar?

subscribed ,,I've been considering the same thing
14" steering wheels seem to be the black sheep of steering wheels most are 15" or 13"

Oh and to the OP that Grant 963 is 13.5" not 14"

I had what is now the 963 on my 67 back in 1991. Still made in M'erica back then. Loved the wheel but hated chasing the horn button around the interior of the car when it fell off frequently. I have the SD 9 bolt mount 14" whatever now but wish I'd tried another Grant as my current wheel is very fat and plastic in the center

I have the Grant 13" wheel in my '66. I love the look of the wheel itself, but as mentioned the mount for the horn button sucks.

Following as the stock wheel in the '68 is huge.
Maybe a stupid question Ö where is the measurement made? The middle of the wheel, inside, outside?

Just received the GT performance horn kit and button.....

WOWSER is it better quality than the POS grant Stuff.

This going to make for a nice install on the new ididit tilt column.

This is the wheel I've got for my 66 (not installed yet). Looks great!

It just needs some TLC.....Tremendous Loads of Cash

I've really been thinking about this one
Any trouble with a 14" wheel and manual steering?
