... this is actually not a joke. If you have a Spyker, I am sure you could put it up on the market and get an early chassis number instead. Moneywise, it may be a break even. Updating other things, like airconditioning or steering radius will be less of a problem!

Option 2. Did you talk to manufacturers of classic car replica steering wheels? Examples are: Nardi (Tradate, Italy), Moto-Lita (Thruxton, UK) or Flaming River. There is also this website, or Ebay lists some... wouldn't know any better .... sorry, I haven't used that. I used option 1 .

Also, maybe you want to have the wheel for the true look, not to drive it with the wheel, as far as I understand the factory does not want to provide the wheel or the hub our of safety reasons? (on the other hand, how come cars where actually built and sold with such wheel :-) I am sorry maybe there is an explanation I don't know

Anyhow, I would be happy to hear from anyone who would sell or know where to buy the propeller wheel. Thank you !
I'm still working on one, but it takes some doing to get it complete, and there are a lot of interested parties.

Hello! Option 1 would not work just fine for us, as the car is located not in Europe or USA, but option 2 sounds quite interesting. Of course, it's better to have the original one. But if it will be impossible,I would try to contact these companies. thank you!

I realize that there are a lot of interested parties since it's a hard-to-get item, especially complete with a hub.
I am an interested party too, this is why I would appreciate if you could PM me your conditions/price etc., maybe we come to an agreement. Thank you

I'm in on the solution you find Rijk. I would be willing to pay extra to defray the initial costs to do a custom made wheel.
