    My opinion no. The column diameter is bigger on the 70 wheel than the 69. If you put it on there I don't think you can make the turn signals work.

        Depends on the wheel. If it’s a wood grain wheel it will fit and work just fine.

        Not to hijack, but will B-Body steering wheels work on A-Body cars?

        if it's like an E-body tuff wheel
        or any of the flatter styles of wheels in B-bodies
        you need a spacer between the column & the wheel
        or a straight turn signal activator lever,
        (or take it off & bend it to be more straight, it doesn't take a bunch)

        otherwise the flatter style later wheels will interfere

        If I remember the 70 woodgrain wheel is different too. It's got a special retainer and ring.
