    There is one on Ebay.com: http://www.ebay.com/itm/73-74-1975-1...230d41&vxp=mtr but no cheap.

    You may restore your original wheel. Cracks can be fixed with a filler for plastic materials. Wood insertion can be fixed also. You can paint it the color you want using a spray can, applying thin layers. Talismandave restored his '74 wheel. You can check his restoration thread: http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...life-my-4.html

    You may also check my '70 wheel restoration; wood insertion reproduction is easier (but not so impressive) than Dave´s.

    Restoring your wheel will take you far more work but will be considerably cheaper than buying a good used one though you may try to find one at a yard first... You never know.

    There are several services in Hemmings Motor News and other collector magazines that restore steering wheels. Heat, cold, and sunlight all take a toll on steering wheels.
