Steering Wheel adapter?

HarpoHarpo Posts: 12
Before I remove my steering wheel from my 53 Hornet do they make an adapter to use after market wheels?
I can't justify paying $1,200 for a cut down wheel to 15". I have lowered and moved the seat back and still hit
the wheel. I am 6'2" and 260lb. Any HELP would be appreciated!!
Thanks anyone!!

    The wheels for the lesser expensive models are a smaller diameter than the 53 Hornet wheel.   I am a plus size guy too and I have a full size wheel in all of my cars. What I did was unbolt the seat from the floor.  I then manufactured a plate that allowed me to move the seat back additional distance.  This plate is bolted to the floor with underfloor plates and the seat frame is attached to the added plate in the back and the Hudson floor in the front.  Good Luck

    So I take it there is no adapter for an after market steering wheel?

    Don't know if those adaptors exist or not but I can't see anyone gearing up to make and market them. Might sell all of 10 a year?
