For Sale: Vintage Ferrari Steering Wheels



I was walking down 72nd Street in Manhattan yesterday when I spotted these beautiful Ferrari steering wheels in the window of the Nicholas Brawer gallery ($6,500 each). In was greeted inside by Nicholas himself who kindly allowed me to handle one. Here's his description: "A pair of original, goblet-shaped steering wheels of the type installed on Ferrari GT cars from 1959 to 1965. The first original wheel is characterized by a mahogany multilayer handle and a polished aluminum body. The three spokes have been finished in a guilloche style, while the inside rings are lathe-turned and polished. The horn is personalized by the Prancing Horse logo in metal coated with enamel. The second wheel is almost identical but with a black bakelite rim with aluminum rivets."

  1. The wheel in the top photo is the sort featured on my Lussos and the GTO--a very sensual part of the car. I wonder what the gallery would ask for an original GTO gearshift knob.
