1960-65 Ferrari 250 275 Nardi 40CM Steering Wheel
An ORIGINAL Nardi wheel correct for sports and racing Ferraris produced 1960-65, namely the SWB, GTO, California Spider, Lusso and early 275 GTB. This wheel has a 40CM outside diameter - smaller than the wheel of the same design used in 2+2 models.
This wheel is completely original and unrestored. Usually, the guilloche engraving on these wheels has faded away from over-polishing. I have made no attempt to clean or polish this wheel and it appears to have never been polished! With some very careful cleaning we are sure the metal will come up like new. The wooden rim likewise has never been restored and all the varnish has been rubbed off. There is one minor crack to the rear at 3 o' clock. Similarly this requires just straightforward restoration.
The only diversion from originality is that some of the holes have been machined to accept countersunk screws - but this is not visible with the horn assembly affixed (see my other listings). I bought this wheel from the south of France where it had been removed from a crashed SWB in the 70's. It is 100% original and authentic.
