Does anyone know about the production numbers for this '40 spinner steering wheel? I have already been offered 1,000 for the one on the '40 we just bought. There is one that is a total basket case on ebay now.

see mine at:

Alan ,There will be no production numbers on the steering wheel.This is because it was a dealer installed accessory.A production option would be an item ordered from the factory and would come on the car.There were very few production options in 1940.Two that come to mind would be an oil bath air cleaner (oil filled) or white wall tires.
The dealer installed all accessories such as heater,radio,& flying lady hood ornament.The spinner wheel was quite rare in 1940 as it cost more than the average Chevrolet buyer would care to spend.What makes it more desireable & rare today is that the plastic rim usually disentgrates in time.Most good ones that you see today have been recast.

I know of no production figures that Chevrolet kept for any accessories like the 1940 spinner steering wheel. I have one on my '40. It is by far the most talked about accessory that I have when people see the car. When people buy an unfinished spinner steering wheel on ebay for $300 or so, they often forget that to restore the wheel, they will have to spend $300 to chrome plate it, $250 to have the rim remolded, $85 for a new stainless horn bar, $50 or more for a horn button.
