Dan if I'm thinking of the same Mustang wheel your talking about, I like the looks of them. BUT, those wood Mustangs wheels are quite common and I think that a 99.9% rimblow even without the switch would be worth more.

I considered the same wheel for my car, but didnt want the Mustang emblem on the horn. I decided on a wood style Grant wheel and was very happy with it. Much cheaper too.

But in it end its whatever pleases you. mm

Dan i have to agree with mark, the rimblow is a much more rare wheel than the horsey wheel. it is a one year only and they dont make them in repop. keep the rimblow is my opinion and if your wanting the other store it away in the top of the garage and just get a grant. you never know one day you may want to change back and you will kick yourself for letting it go.

Rare steering wheel?

When I got AlphaCat (73 XR-7) some 20 years ago, it had a factory leather wrapped wheel. I always thought the rim blows were neat so I swapped the leather out for a rim blow. Bid I make a boo-boo? I wonder what ever happened to that leather wheel... I've never seen another one in our year Cats.
