    Not without serious modifications.

    You could restore the rim. Just sanding well, cleaning it thoroughly and spray-painting with 2-3 thin layers.

    In addition, adaptation of a 40-50s one would delete the tilt/telescoping feature.

    BTW... Is that wheel/dash/pedals in the right side of the car?

    Hmm, it is. And the image isn't flipped.

    Not even close. Nor would I recommend it.
    The pre-66 wheels are not safety steering wheels and particularly the '67 and later are MUCH safer in an accident. The older "hard plastic" wheels like this one tend to fracture the spokes and impale the driver.
