I have three 1250's so I am relatively sure that the 1967 197-01 and probably the 1968 197-02 had white steering wheels. I also have a 1969 197-03 and it currently has a black steering wheel. Is this correct for the year?

i had a 850 that had a black steering wheel and i have seen 1050s and 850s with them but i never recall seeing a 1250 but its a 1250-03 thats a late model so it's probably correct

1969 is when the black steering wheels began being used, although not on all models.

Most 1250-03 had black steeering wheels along with the 1455 in 1969.

Thanks, Jerome. That is useful on two fronts. It means that my 1455 with the Johnson forklift is a 1969.

1969 was the only year for the 1455 last I knew.

Got any really nice ones left, Rick? It would save me the trouble of restoring one that is intact, but severely weathered.
