Tan wheel does not cut it. However its a leather wrapped wheel. Me thinks original plastic wheel sun and cold cracked and Salvage yard find was leather and tan a compromise. Very nice Coach too close to me happy to look at for anyone interested.

That green Maharaja(sp) interior is a '74 and '75 Cadillac interior option. I have never seen S&S use it on anything '77 or newer before. My '75 Victoria has a green carpeted 3-way table, which I love. This '77 really needs to have the lower repainted in a complimentary green.

I am told that the steering wheel is out of an early '80s Cadillac. Based on the color of the landau bars, I would assume that this coach was all black originally.

Looks like the only visible rust issue is under the vinyl on the back door, which is very common.
How did I miss that steering wheel? I guess the rest of the car looks good, so maybe it is okay. I had a 76 S&S limo-style combination with the same green paisley interior, I thought it was a fabulous looking interior, it brought me back to the Seventies.

It wouldn't be impossible to find a decent, correct black steering wheel for it. That wheel has to go! It's such a nice coach and that wheel jumps out at you like a big zit!
It also needs the color-keyed wheel covers like Kent has on his Victoria.

I LOVE the color wheel covers on the late 70's cars... howevah, I have never seen a funeral home that ran a late 70's hearse that had those on it, always the little black center disc. So... I have the green wheel covers(and the gray for the 77 M-M) but I leave the black center disc covers on them, and haven't used the color wheel covers other than to get a quick photo of them... but day to day, the 77 S & S is dressed out this way:
