The new steering wheel design for 1971. Still color coordinated with the interior but now a padded horizontal bar replaced the plastic used in 1969 & 1970. Gone too is the MALIBU script in favor of a Chevrolet script.

When optioned with RPO Z15, the steering wheel sported an SS emblem in place of the Chevrolet script.

Although this is actually from a 1972 Chevelle, the NK2 Deluxe steering wheel was used both years. 1971 sales only saw 1,898 Deluxe steering wheels sold. Also note incorrect headlamp switch knob from the 1970 model year.

Note on a standard dash (no gauge option ordered) the NK4 steering wheel is color coordinated with the interior while the NK4 steering wheel on a non-SS optioned Malibu with gauges is always black to match the dash face.

Optional NK4 4-spoke sport steering wheel. Note bowtie emblem on horn button on the non-SS optioned Malibus in the top two photos compared to the SS emblem on the SS-optioned Malibu in the lower photo. This SS emblem is not correct for Chevelles but was used on 1971 SS Novas.  Only 8,962 NK4 steering wheel options were sold in 1971.
