Looking for 73 Caprice Classic steering wheel


I'm trying to help my friend find a steering wheel for his 73 Caprice Classic. We've looked all over the internet and phoned up several parts stores but no such luck. If anyone happens to know someone that may have one for sale let me know please. He might even accept 

the Chevrolet steering wheel which was the same shape but different trim and the 'Chevrolet" title appeared off-center to the right.

Does he need the whole steering wheel, or just the center "shroud" which I presume is removable? His steering wheel looks to be in good shape.

 Clint, I think that if you read his ad the way I did, he is not saying this is the actual car that needs the steering wheel but is a picture of a similar wheel that has the wrong emblem in a different location as well.

Here is an ebay picture of a 1973 Caprice steering wheel which I believe has the correct emblem in the location.  At least, that's the way I see what he wrote.

To clarify, the picture I posted is not from his car but rather what the steering wheel should look like. Here is a different picture of a 73 Caprice Classic steering wheel. Ideally he's looking for this emblem and a black steering wheel.

If he's correct, for 73 the "Classic" name appeared in the top center. For the non-Classic, Chevrolet appeared off to the right with a different steering wheel design and imitation wood trim like the one Carl posted. This was the same design used on Byscaine, Bel-Air & Impala with the "Chevrolet" name appearing in the first two and "Impala" appearing in the Impala. He would accept the one labelled Chevrolet as well. Right now the car has an aftermarket steering wheel.
