66 Beaumont steering wheel colour???


Good day all! Does anyone know the paint code for a red 66 steering wheel? I found a black one in mint shape and want to paint it red as like the interior. Thank you!

Not sure what the colour is but I would love a picture of your black wheel. I went to look at very nice wheel last week for my 65 but it was a 66

I don't have the definitive answer, but at least here is a link to the colour chips, specifically the interior paint chips for 1966 GM:

https://paintref.com/cgi-bin/chipdisplay.cgi?year=1966&manuf=GM&smodel=Buick&info=&page=29

I would guess that the old Dupont lacquer formula was 4625-LH, the semi-gloss. Modern lacquer isn't 1-2-3 with the old leaded stuff and in fact may not be available in even the less durable form at all due to VOC levels. Maybe something in a single stage would be best now because if you shoot clear over top it may change the look & colour somewhat. The wheel will see a lot of wear (hopefully smile )

 

Thank goodness for paintref.com. I check them often.

I am looking for a good black wheel for my 66 SD if it is for sale. Lawrence might have a extra steering wheel.
