These new, solid wood grips were just released from the Old Skool Zone at CON2R and there is no question they elevate their “Custom(er) Designed” steering wheels to yet another level.  Guaranteed to radically change the character of any vehicle’s interior, the grips are created from 18 segments of select, solid hardwoods.  Unique to this design is how the grips can be created from a single species or with various arrangements of mixed species.  Walnut and maple are the current standards, but any species can be provided upon request.  To complete the look, wood spoke covers and horn buttons—with laser engraving if you wish—are available.

These bespoke wheels are assembled with precision-cut wood components that are hand sanded, sealed with a grain-highlighting conditioner and then finished with a satin polyurethane for superior durability.  This creates an optimal balance between comfort and strength while allowing the wood to add a touch of warmth and richness to any interior.  These one-of-a-kind grips are absolutely exclusive to CON2R steering wheels and provide a look that cannot be equaled.

These beautiful wood grips are available on any CON2R steering wheel with an option price of $245.00.  Complete information about this new upgrade, as well as the full line of CON2R products, can be found at

New “Sebring” Spoke Pattern for CON2R Series One Steering Wheels

Landing at the top of the “What’s New” chart in the Old Skool Zone at CON2R is their three spoke “Sebring” steering wheel.  Featuring a wide set “Y” spoke pattern, the inspiration for this design comes directly from the era of the muscle cars. 

With this addition, there are now seven distinct spoke patterns that can serve as the starting point for creating “Your Wheel Your Way.”  Combined with the grip offsets, wheel colors, trim elements and custom options available from CON2R, this spoke pattern gives you the opportunity to create a wheel that is truly one-of-a-kind. 

The Sebring spoke pattern is available on all CON2R Series One steering wheels and has a base price of $345.00 plus shipping.

CON2R Releases “SuperStock” Instrument Sets for 1947-54 Chevrolet Pickup Trucks

If you like the look of the instruments Chevrolet used from 1947 to 1954 in their pickup trucks then you’re going to fall in love these all new, updated and upgraded direct replacements manufactured by CON2R in Beaverton, OR.  From the typeface to the embossed background textures, these instruments demonstrate how “factory stock” was elevated to meet their "SuperStock” standards.

Rather than duplicate the factory layout of “one and four” gauges, CON2R gave the speedometer and tachometer equal importance and balanced the four auxiliary gauges in a “two by two” configuration.  The textures, windows and raised lettering of the originals have been carried through to create a seamless transition from the old to the new gauge layout.  Behind the original looking faces are electronic stepper motors that drive the needles with the highest possible level of accuracy and dependability. 

When the sun goes down, the instruments light up using CON2R’s unique and exclusive “halo” LED system that provides even, glare-free illumination across all the gauge faces.  Parking brake, high beam and turn signal lights are all integrated into the design.

Grey and tan color schemes are standard but special colors are available as are 120, 140 and 160 mph speedometer markings.

This look is both new and retro and without a doubt, the styling places them directly in the middle of the CON2R Old Skool Zone. 

Additional information on these instruments and others being developed by CON2R can be found online at

New Old Stock Beehive Taillights

These absolutely gorgeous beehive taillights feature original 2.75” diameter circa 1940 glass lenses.

When we found them, the lenses were still wrapped in the same newspaper the factory used more than 70 years ago as packing material.  We decided the best way to show case the lenses was an elegant, machined and triple chrome plated steel housing without any visible fasteners.

As you can see, the end result is an ultra-smooth, ultra-clean, ultra-slick design that gives the lenses a Frenched look without any complicated body work.

The outside diameter of the housing is 4” and installation requires cutting a 3 3/8” hole, inserting the housing and clamping it from the backside.   They have an O-ring seal between the housing and the surface to which they mount and come with a socket to hold an 1157 style bulb or LED.

We’re making just 40 sets of these lights with a retail price of $269.95 per pair plus shipping.  To add a touch of authenticity, each set will come with a piece of the original newspaper.

New Banjo Wheel Has Old Skool Zone Inspiration

This classic “nine string” beauty pays homage to some of the classiest steering wheels of the 30’s and 40’s.

With 3 spokes set in a wide “Y” pattern, this wheel is an accurate reflection of the original banjo wheels.  Up-to-date features include the chrome plated steel frame and 15” diameter ABS rims with finger-grooved grips that are available in any combination of CON2R’s 15 standard colors. With an appropriate adapter, the 3-Bolt mounting pattern allows nearly universal mounting of the wheel.

CON2R Adds Trim Ring Options to Steering Wheels

These bright and shiny trim rings from CON2R are the newest addition to the options available for their "Your Wheel Your Way" custom(er) designed steering wheel system.

This classically styled upgrade is available on all of their Series One wheels and can be ordered as a full ring or as a partial segment to create a unique, yet timeless, look.

Each ring is CNC machined from steel and precision welded to the wheel frame, then triple chrome-plated and polished to a high shine to ensure a long and lustrous life.

Soft Touch CON2R Steering Wheels

It’s soft and it’s tough.  It’s great to hold and it’s easy on the eyes.  No, it’s not Superwoman; it’s the latest addition to the CON2R options list that allows you to get "Your Wheel Your Way."

Developed during the search for a suede finish for their wheels, this new and greatly improved material from CON2R provides a unique, soft feel along with a low-sheen look that is an ideal match for a deluxe interior.  This urethane coating is also highly scratch- and mar-resistant and virtually unaffected by ring dings and dirty hands holding it tightly.

This new look is available on all of their standard solid color ABS wheels as well as any custom paint upgrade.  With a “Soft Touch Finish” on your wheel from CON2R, you’ll have a comfortable feel and a classy look that won’t require replacement or rebuilding after miles and miles of cruising with the radio on.

Skull Shift Knob

DECEMBER 1, 2009

Beaverton, Oregon: CON2R has announced the availability of their first of its kind animated skull shift knob.

In additional to being anatomically correct with individual teeth and properly shaped eye sockets, this skull has a jaw that is fully articulated and able to be positioned anywhere from “shut up” closed to a full open scream.

Starting life as 3D model, it has been brought to life as an investment cast, chrome plated and hand polished in the same manner and with a material from the same family as a bronze sculpture.

Separating this skull from all others are the two accessory helmets available that have each been designed for a custom look and fit.

The first, a track style helmet, is complete with every detail down to the buckle, has been meticulously re-created to breathe life into this classic look.

The second “Mercury” helmet has put a smile on the faces of the Norse gods with its fully detailed wings and bold deco warrior style.

Both helmets are produced, as is the skull, with hand poured invested castings.  They are individually chrome plated and hand polished to gleaming perfection.

This skull has been shrunk from life size to approximately 3” tall and it comes with a standard 3/8” X 16 threaded vertebrae mount.

The Skull Shift Knob is priced at $229.95. The helmets are priced at $199.95 each. All three can be viewed online at
