    73S Steering Wheel Correctness

    Curious to see what would be correct for a 73S coupe Steering wheel.
    Ive looked at a lot of pics and seems to be many. Not sure what my car came with originally.
    As it had an aftermarket in it when I purchased car. Hopefully the experts can weigh in on this for me.
    Thanks for the comments and help. Pics and part#'s would be great.
    Thanks

    I am not sure what steering wheel came stock on a '73S, mine had the faux leather wrap wheel

    My 73S came with a faux leather steering wheel. It is an ROW car built 9/10 72. Date on the wheel is 10/72. The car is #310. I also have a 73 dated steering wheel, faux leather, which has a larger diameter grip and much more texture than the earlier one. It is dated 4/73. From a few feet away the earlier one is indistinguishable from leather.

    Interesting. The wheel I have is 911 347 082 00 11/72. It appears to have been leather wrapped at one time.
    Would this have been correct? Who would you recommend to restore and re-wrap the wheel?
