Not that it matters much now, but Wheelskins claim to have navy blue that they simply call "blue".

Color chart here:


I think the size is "A", but not sure. But Amazon claims to sell it in blue as well. $50.95, but it is leather. And blue. A tad pricier than most, but from what I understand, it's a decent product.

Thanks for the lead. I suppose that I could re-wrap it. That brand never came up during my searches on Amazon and Ebay last year. 'Blue' looks about right for the Cutlass wheel.

The brand I chose was Belinous Leather car steering wheel cover, lace-up, stitch-on wrap, size M1, black. It laced up perfectly, stretching tightly over the grip features on the back of the wheel. The baseball stitch does a nice job gathering the edges and pulling them under.

I tore one hole, but poked a fresh one next to it. Beeswax on the lacing helped it slip through. The tricky part was lacing around the frame break-outs.

I have Wheelskins on both my g bodies, the color and size was perfect. The one on the El Camino has been there has been there since '07 and looks as good as ever. In both cases I called about size before I ordered and after I was sent a sample for color. It's a good company. Don't know whether they list on Amazon or Ebay at all.

What color is your interior ? Looks like gray in the pictures.
Theres a Regal at the junkyard I get parts from with a gray interior but to be honest I never noticed if the wheel was still there. Next time Im out that way I'll check for you.
