Default Different Steering Wheel Choices

Okay, let me start by declaring this a "I am bored Wednesday" topic.

So can anyone converse on the pros and cons of using non-conventional steering wheels in your rides.

I am looking for something different, than the standard factory steering wheel that came with my 66' C10 or the standard "Grant-Style" aftermarket wheels..

I have seen some cool old tractor steering wheels, old speed boat wheels and the old fashioned butter-fly dragster/go cart style wheels.

Any one using ony of these types?

I don't think I would like the butter fly wheel ... may cause some trouble turning , I put a smaller three spoke wheel from a Pontiac in my 65 ford .. I liked it even though it had Pontiac in the center of it .. If it looks good to ya swap it out .. If you don't have power steering the smaller you get it the tougher it will be to turn , it was on mine anyway
Also because of tough steering I took a 1975 ford trucks power steering box and it bolted up perfect to the frame.. so I had power steering in my 65 .. That was nice

Default '60s steering wheel on a '59 Chevy pickup?

While we're on the subject, will a '60s Chevy truck steering wheel pop right onto my '59 steering column? I found one for cheap and like the look.
