The 69 wheel used a smaller hub #3937896 for chevelle I would guess same as camaro.

John, was your car originally Canadian-delivered?

Yes, it was - to Howard Elliott Motors in Hamilton, Ontario.

ZLP:  I'm curious.. did you see something in John's photos that triggered you to it being a Canadian car?  :)
JohnZ:  Did the McKinnon plant build 302's for Z28s? :)  or were high performance small blocks 'all Flint' as I've always believed?

McKinnon didn't build any solid-lifter small-block engines - they all came out of Flint V-8.

Some detail pics of original walnut 69 wheel and horn button showing grain. One thing I like about the walnut wheel is it is probably the only part on a Camaro that
is NOT being reproduced...yet.

Ko-lec-tor,

Is that walnut wheel a '69 Camaro wheel, from an 'early '69' before rosewood?   What was the changeover date for that?

Yes it is a 69 Camaro wheel and end of November 68, I understand.

I've came across one or two of those at swap meets in the past, but didn't know what they were for..  shallow dish, sized/shaped like a '69 Camaro rosewood, but in walnut instead..  I guess I should have bought them (for trade material?) *G*

A buddy got  a very nice 69 Walnut wheel on a Z10 he bought, I treid to buy it for quite some time for my 69 (10b 68 build), but he would not sell.  Finally was able to trade him my 71 cowl air cleaner for it when he bought a BB El C.  Love the way it looks!  I have an original 69 Rosewood stored away for my SS :D

I had no idea they were worth that much. Glad mine has one.
Long time Camaro man.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/NOS-1969-Camaro-Chevelle-Nova-Impala-Rosewood-steering-wheel-/230960386380?pt=Vintage_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item35c64fd14c&vxp=mtr


NOS $7500.00.   :o
WOW that's over 5 times what I paid for my 70 1/2 RS in about '83 and over twice what I sold it for in '89. and 3 times more than I paid for a decent '69 Camaro i the early 80's and more than I paid for my '69 Z (glad I still have that on cause it has a rosewood wheel). None of the cars were NOS but they all had nice steering wheels (+ 4 0ther wheels, 5 with the spare and fly wheels) (:
