It came out of my 86SE. I understand that my car is not a GT. However is this considered a GT steering wheel? It has the leather wrap. I was thinking of selling it as I installed a Grant wheel. I just wanna make sure I list it correctly. Also any ideas as to what it might be worth? I know it's, "what someone will pay", right?


Any help would be greatly appreciated! TY and have a great weekend!

Nope. GT wheels are the 3-spoke leather wrapped ones. Yours came on '86-'87 SE's only (leather wrapped, that is). This same style (but just plain foam/plastic) was also on '87-'88 coupes & '88 Formulas. I believe the leather was an option on the '86-'87 SE's, so I guess the plain plastic one was also available on those years as well. But definitely the leather wrapped ones (like your picture) were only available on '86-'87 SE's.

**edited to add: As far as values go......if the leather is in good shape (not ripped, torn, faded, shrunk, ripped stitches, etc.) and the horn paddles are in good shape (looks like they are) then you should be able to get $50-$75 for it. For a super quick sale $40 would get it sold in a hurry.

UM your selling it, Just how much do you want for it? mine the leather has started to peel off on the top and both dam horn button brake off. I was going to rebuild it this winter but with all the other projects I have going, plus, well winter I probably won't have time.

Interesting trivia is that the 89/90 prototype was rocking one of those. They probably started with an 86 SE to create it?
