Got this one from a JY last year for $10. 8)

Made in Italy deep dish Personal 4-spoke, built 11/74. :tu: :mrgreen:

Leather has no scratches or stains, has very cool white stitching in great shape, and came with a Datsun Nardi hub too!

Here's another...

Leather 3-spoke Personal, 10/71 production date, cool 5mm white stripe inside the rim that goes all the way around. Had a Nardi Datsun horn button too. 8)

Here's a couple of Nissan ones

Nismo Compe Handle: I think this was an original Nissan Sport Corner part in the early 70s, but was re-issued in the early 90s by Nismo. Nismo made a run of 500 which was immediately sold out, so they made another run of 500 (which was also immediately sold out) :) The rim looks like stitched leather but is actually soft plastic and the stitching is fake, it's just moulded plastic.
Image

The Compe is kinda a default sports wheel for classic nissans in Japan, so much so that they came up with an aftermarket replica C10 GT-R hornpad that fits over the Compe.
Image

This other one is called "Mach"
Image
I've seen them fitted to the factory Hako touring cars, and I think they were an aftermarket wheel from back in the day. Leather rim (which seems to go white with age) and super expensive today if you can find one. I think repros are available, also super expensive at $2k apiece

Here's what I am using now..
Personal wood steering wheel.. had it re-upholstered a few months back because of slight cracks in the wood.. but the new leather didn't quite worked out well.. so I'm planning to have it re-upholstered again.. but this time, through a professional upholsterer.

Image



Also, got this watchamacallit steering wheel as my reserve hehe

Mine is a Nardi classic. I stuck with the polished look to compliment the Defi gauges. :D

But trying to get a stock wheel at the moment. Imho the best looking stock wheel that has ever been inside a cockpit.

My steering wheel isn't as nice, but I think it looks sort of neat. I'm not even sure if it's OEM. It's off of my Honda N600.
