The color in your pictures does not come through well via the internet.

You could take this on yourself. I have a similar wheel and EBay was quoting me $300+ for not fabulously better choices.

Your wheel design has the advantage that a laced-on wheel wrap will not reveal any of the underlying plastic, so you may not need to even paint it.

I dug out the cracked trim ring and used PC7 epoxy to fill all the cracks, then filed it all back down to the right profile. I painted the finished product with plastic dye/paint and then added the wrap using a 'baseball stitch', instructions from YT. The key is tight. Break a lace, tie a square knot and tuck in the tails. Tear a hole, punch another one with an awl.

Lesson learned - use two wraps. I started with an imported EBay 'leather' wrap from Bellinous. They did not offer blue, but the Forum abides, and I learned about Made in the USA Wheelskins. The Wheelskins version was a little loose, so if I had left the Bellinous wrap in place, I would have had a posh, leather-wrapped, comfy grip.

wheelskins.com. Not cheap, but good quality, and I was more satisfied with the color match than the paint I used on the wheel, which will always be visible. The Wheelskin is thicker and never tore a hole.

Theres a black Regal with a gray interior at the local yard but I dont know the condition of the steering wheel or even the year of the car. Im pretty swamped with stuff going on at my house this week but I "might" be able to check it out on Sat AM. Ive been dealing with this yard for a few year now and the owners dont beat me up too bad as far as pricing. Let me know if you want me to check it out for you.

Yes please if you swing snap some pictures of it . Mine is like a light grey with a hint of blue not sure what color it really is .
 
Have you considered an aftermarket steering wheel? I bought this polished aluminum Grant steering wheel off Ebay for $70 and then painted the spokes to match the dash and the horn button black and then installed the Buick tri shield horn button to give it a "stockish" look.
