SOLD


1968 Ford Shelby COBRA GT 500
Original EFFPI  Wood Steering Wheel
15.75″ Diameter – 40 cm
Original New Old Stock made end of 1967 – 1968
To fit 1968 – 1969 Ford Mustang – Shelby Cobra GT 500

  • 1968 Ford Shelby COBRA GT 500 Original EFFPI  Wood Steering Wheel.
  • 15.75″ Diameter – 40 cm.
  • Original New Old Stock made end of 1967 – 1968.
  • To fit 1968 – 1969 Ford Mustang – Shelby Cobra GT 500.

The Italian company EFFPI that had manufactured wooden steering wheels for 1966 and 1967 Shelby cars declared bankrutpcy at the end of 1967.

C. Shelby did not find another alternative and kept the Ford Mustang simulated wood steering wheels for his upwards 1968 cars.

The new owner F.I.V. – FABRICA ITALIANA VOLANTI s.p.a. Milano took over the Italian EFFPI company inventory.

From the end of 1967, F.I.V.  started producing cheaper aftermarket wood steering wheels with the look of  the EFFPI “67 Shelby GT 500” for different car models including Fiat, VW, BMW, Innocenti, Maserati and Shelby, using a “GRANT like” adapter and a complicated non-working top horn button assembly which were both riveted on the frame of the steering wheel.

Unfortunately due to the bad isolated horn rings and horn button assembly of those F.I.V. aftermarket steering wheels, many cars got electrical shortcuts and some got on fire.

Due to many lawsuits F.I.V. had to close the company in 1969.

In the 1970′s the F.I.V. Co. inventory had been bought through a Milanese car and car parts dealer. About 5 years ago I was able to purchase the left-over inventory from this retired car and parts dealer which included a large amount of EFFPI – F.I.V. steering wheels for Shelby cars with different hubs for 66 – 67 and 68 Ford Mustang – some embossed with EFFPI – some with F.I.V – and some were only embossed on the backside with INT. PATENTED (MADE IN ITALY).

This particular steering wheel is one of the many I purchased.
I assume that it had been manufactured by the previous EFFPI Co. end of 1967 to fit the new wider steering column of Ford Mustang’s 1968 models.

This steering wheel is fitted with the correct original 67 68 69 Ford steering column spline and contact rings what's rare is that it has the large stainless lower hub skirt with a diameter of 3,970″ which fits perfectly into the 1968 and 1969 Ford Shelby or Mustang steering column housing.

The steering wheel (see last pictures) has been tested and fits perfectly on a 1968 Ford Shelby steering column.

The steering wheel itself is in concours flawless condition.
I have never seen a nicer wooden rim as on this steering wheel.

Several of those “68 Ford spline and wider hub diameter steering wheels were among the left-over inventory I had purchased and I have previously sold 2 of those, 1 last year for $6,000,
see  http://wood-steering-wheels.com/52-shelby-cobra-steering-wheel/  

I also sold another one 2 years ago through Ebay for $4,840.00

Since then those steering wheels (for Shelby 1966 and 67) have extensively increased in value and I value my steering wheel at this time at $7,000.
The FIV Bullitt 68 leather steering wheel, shown on some pictures, has been sold last week through my Website to a new owner of a 68 Fastback GT 500.
