Many new owers buy a corvair and it comes with a non-stock steering wheel or a stock one but from the wrong year. So, they get online to buy one, the ad states it is for the correct year model, so it arrives yet does not fit at all. Common issue. The issues are the seller does not know what he is selling and you rely on it. Corvairs from 1960-63 and 67+ have a steering wheel that, although is different in appearance, have the same shaft size hole that the wheel fits onto: a 3\4” diameter hole. For the years 64-66, for some reason, corvair wheels have a diameter hole of 1\2”. Except for the horn chrome piece for 60-66, the steering wheel itself look very similar, what differs in these years are the chrome horn pieces, which is subtle. The 67+ is clearly different with its three chrome spokes. So, if you are needing a new steering wheel, simply ask what size is the wheel shaft hole and compare what you have, before buying. So, a 60-63 or 67+ wheel will not fit onto a 64-66 model.
