My steering wheel has some cracks and rough spots. Does anyone have a source for refurbishment of these steering wheels?
I think I read somewhere that several 105's had the same wheel shape, but that the Montreal used a lighter color wood than the others.FWIW, for those missing the original wheel, the Giulia Nuova Super steering wheel is the same as Montreal ....
That is true Alleggerita! I had hoped that the same VG Hellebore steering wheel from a Giulia Nuova Super would fit my 1966, 105 Giulia Spider (aka Duetto) but that is not the case. My aim was to reduce the reach to the wheel, with the seat back all the way. I have seen 'long tail' spiders with VG Hellebore steering wheels but they are smaller in diameter and don't have quite as much 'dish' to them as the Super/Montreal wheel you mention.FWIW, for those missing the original wheel, the Giulia Nuova Super steering wheel is the same as Montreal ....
I think that Alfa Romeo tried to color coordinate the steering wheels with the color scheme of the car. The light blue Montreal has a lighter 'blonde' wood wheel. My old '74 spider, which was navy blue, had a dark reddish mohogany looking wheel. I've noticed in Dr. Taylor's books there are a few color steering wheel variations shown and they are usually the same for a given color scheme....the Montreal used a lighter color wood than the others.
