Correct steering wheels by year
#31
I've been seeing quite a few new pics with non-original steering wheels. And unfortunately many are thinking the wheels are correct. For those that care, the following thread addresses the different steering wheels offered on the 71-73 Mustangs.

1972 Q code 4 speed convertible 
1971 Mustang Sportsroof  351-2V FMX 
1973 Mach 1 (parts car)

Ray,
It is amazing how some aftermarket items get moved into the Stock status.
I just spent  my first day tearing down a 72 vert to part out. Should have the whole car apart in a couple more days.
I will have a couple of steering wheels I will offer up to the forum and then put on ebay. I have a three spoke for Mustang and 3 spoke for Cougar.
It is like therapy to tear a car apart. Great 70's rock playing and the smell of WD-40 and the air ratchet going.
It is like an archeology dig you see where repairs were made parts replaced and how the car progressed through it's life. This particular car was a one owner beautiful Gold Glow vert that got hit in rear and then front end crushed. It had a NOS rubber front bumper on it with the stickers from Ford still on it. I hope to save that.
maybe we should go to the sales brochures and scan the interior shots to ad to your thread for the steering wheels.
BTW this car spent it's entire life in Grand Rapids Michigan and there is not a spot of rust in the floors. The trunk drop offs were solid but now crushed. I will save the floor section for future build. It was a Ziebart car and is more rust free than my California car is. The rain gutter for the conv. top has NO rust at all amazing.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

Interesting thought to scan the brochures. But I think the pics we have in this thread help everyone who wants to know. Yeah - I have a 64 Comet and a 73 Mach 1 that need to be torn down for parts among others...
