Hi All,
I’m after a 101 spider steering wheel as pictured. Needs to be in useable condition.
I’m chasing for a friend who does not use the internet. His wheel is beyond repair as pictured.
I’m located in Sydney, Australia. Let me know what you have please.
Regards Daniel

There are 2 types of these. Early has aluminum frame exposed on the inside, later, to production end has the aluminum completely encapsulated in the acrylic.

Hi Daniel and Gordon,

Daniel,
Fwiw, I saw in the catalog that the late Giulia 101 RHD Spiders had another Alfa number for the steering wheel than the LHD cars. I don't know what could be the difference but I thought I mentioned it anyway for in case you would buy another steering wheel. Maybe another owner of a RHD spider can give some more information about any difference.
The hub is not mentioned, so normally that part wouldn't be changed.
I have no data about the 1300 - 101 RHD Spiders, sorry.

Gordon,
I saw in a 1966 amendment to the 101 Giulia catalog that the Alfa number for that type of steering wheel changed indeed. Until now I didn't know why. I would now be tempted to conclude carefully that this was for the encapsulated aluminium as you said. Thanks for sharing your wisdom again.

Rgds,

Thierry

Gordon is right, while the 101 Giulia & 105 Sprint GT wheels look much the same, the hubs are totally different & they are not interchangeable as a 105 wheel on a 101 car is 3" closer to the driver with a large gap between the boss & the steering shroud

Ciao

Thanks Greig. I KNEW they differed, and did not interchange, but YOU have the why. I've a REALLY neat 101 late wheel. I'll send you some photos. A 50 year project!
