Genuine teak wood steering wheels were not offered as an option on the 1967 Corvette as they had been on earlier Mid-Years. The standard steering wheel for 1967 Corvettes was a faux wood-grain plastic wheel that was functional and acceptable, although not exactly exciting as far as appearance went. So, although it is not 'correct,' per se, many owners upgrade the tiller in their '67s to teak  instead of the stock plastic. It’s not a hard installation, it only takes about a half-hour and you can always go back to the pure stock wheel in the same amount of time. And, while they’re a bit on the expensive side, the stylish and luxurious look and feel of genuine wood to hold onto while piloting your 'Vette makes the investment worthwhile for many owners. Here’s how the installation went.
