I'm not at all sure there are many good SV steering wheels out there.

Do you have one now?

If you do, what sort of condition is it in?

If the outer portion (Rim where you hold for steering) is in good condition, a fellow member here had a new hub assembly that is machine cut for sale.

His SAOCA Handle is: 65Sunbeam

I just bought one of the hub assemblies for one of my Alpines.

Default Steering wheel for series V Alpine

Thanks Dan for your reply.
I have 2 Alpines both Series V
One has an original steering wheel.
The outer rim in poor condition

The other Series V came with an after market steering wheel that is not suited to the vehicle. It looks like it was just put on the vehicle to move it around.
Ideally I would like original but would consider an after market steering wheel that suited the vehicle.
Any ideas or options would be appreciated.
Thanks

Default Try a "Search"

Rosco, If you type in these words: steering, wheel, options in the "Search" above and you will get many hits on the subject.

P.S. I spent some Great time, about 6 months, in Christchurch back in 1963. Loved the people I met and the places I went.

There are some available on EBay right now and you'll see them for sale periodically. Various conditions and prices. Can get them cheaper if you are willing to do some restoration.

Default It would be a Dream come true

I ahve always wished to have been able to get assigned there. We had a small US Air Force Detachment at the Christchurch Air Field.

First day upon arrival I was invited by a family there to go on a tour of Churchchurch and teat the waters for the fishing of a life time

I arrived with my fly rod and gear in hand.... Borrowed a British enfield 303 for hunting and was trilled each and very day I could get away.

Shot a chamio (spelling) and had some very nice horns mounted. Still on display in a special place for all to see.
Learned what it was to "Boil-the-Billy" Had tea frequently! Best fish&chips in the world, even better than the ones I purchased while stationed in Bermuda from 1959 til 61. That was my first experience with the British Pound and the little Red Series I Alpine my buddy Chamberlin bought.

Downunder is one of my favorite spots.

Keep in touch & Keep-em-on-the-Road

Rosco,


I have several of the plastic wheels that came on Series 3-V Alpines. The wheel
rims are in good shape, just the hubs need to be restored.

Let me know if you'd be interested.
Thanks,
Steve
