I have seen many! That is the standard factory steering wheel for 1971-1973. EDIT: SEE CORRECTION BELOW
(edit: many people call the 2 spoke - pad goes straight across as the standard but it is the Deluxe)
The Deluxe is a 2 spoke and the other factory option wheel is the Rim Blow.

CORRECTION - for 1971 this steering wheel is standard but in 72 and 73 the Deluxe became standard and the plain wheel with the large center pad/horn button was no longer offered.

I have two of them (one not in hood shape). Trying to decide if I will use it since the rest of my interior will be deluxe.

I have seen several threads where the Mustang II Steering wheel is a direct bolt on and looks really nice, if you so desire to upgrade. The top section of the steering column are same as the 1970 -1973 Fords. Nice of Ford to do that!

Interesting to see a standard steering wheel in a car with a gauge package. I will say again that nothing surprises me on these cars from the factory. I figure half the employees were stoned on the line... But i dont think that putting a mustang ghia wheel in our cars is good Karma. Just an opinion.
