Why don't you just clean it up and repaint it?
I did mine when I redid the console side plates. The escutcheon on mine was cast aluminum. I wire brushed it good and painted with textured rustoleum.

I'm unclear what you are asking. Do you need a steering wheel or the bezel for the helm?

The wheels are readily available. If you want the original you need a six spoke "Destroyer" type wheel from Grant Marine Products See: for more details of the wheel.

If you're looking for a bezel they are available from any place that sells the steering system like West Marine.
