In another thread the question was asked: whether is this the correct steering wheel?

The car in the photo is a 1956 De Soto.

It's interesting, so I looked for this steering wheel and found it
This steering wheel was used in the 1949-51 De Soto.

1955/1956 DeSotos used 3 unique steering wheel styles, excluding variations in colors. One was the wheel shown in the first photo of the thread, which was only on the manual transmission cars. This wheel is, as someone else mentioned, I believe the same as some older DeSotos such as the '49. You'll also note in that same photo that the '56 models got the '55 gauge surround that does not have the push-button housing built-in and then both '55 and '56 with the manual transmission have block-off plates where the '55 automatic shift lever would normally protrude from the dash on the right side of the wheel. The second wheel available in 1955/1956 was the standard wheel on the cheaper Firedomes, which was single-tone and had a horn ring that was similar, but not identical, to the one commonly found in the deluxe wheel. The deluxe two-tone wheel was by far the most common wheel as it was on all Fireflites, Adventurers (in '56) and even most Firedomes.
