Quite some time ago I posted about how difficult it was to find the steering wheel Eleanor displayed in the movie. You may remember the Lecarra wheels were originally French made but something happened and production stopped for months upon months. Once manufacturing resumed they then became US made wheels and was this writers opinion that the quality was not as good. Why? Well I’ve owned both versions. The French ones were far more smoother, felt of a higher craftsmanship and of course were a match to the movie car. That being it had 18 rivets whereas the newer US one only had 9.
