Yep, when I saw yours... I had to have one too!!!
 
My last computer crash lost most of my pics. Even the external hard drive I had a bunch on died . There might be some on my build thread on here, it’s just a 66-67 Chevelle wheel.
 
Nothing fancy, just one of those old wood gripped aftermarket wheels that had some bad wood pieces, so I wrapped it with 3/16" diameter rope. You get the bonus of my custom shift knob as well, both in my 48 Plymouth Business coupe.
Kind of fits the theme of the car being an old dirt track race car. (pic 2)

This one is very unique, but looks plain. That is 'alternative authenticity'. It is homemade. There are a handful of '47 Ford truck choke rods, part of a peanut butter jar, a really big homemade concave washer, quite a bit of 1/4"X 5/16" keystock, and the original perimeter ring from this truck, all in this 'banjo wheel'. Oh, ya, and quite a bit of body filler.

I have made a few. Finding photos of them all is difficult.
