It’s been some four years since we last shared information about the wonderful European made steering wheels we managed to track down coming out of France. For those uninitiated after the Gone In 60 Seconds movie remake became popular there was a rush to build ‘Eleanor’ clones that were movie correct. Unfortunately shortly after the movie finished the steering wheel factory that made these wheels changed it’s base of operation from France to the US and as a result a drop in quality was noticed. Here’s our initial comparison and here’s our follow up.

After a lot of searching we managed to track down a French operation creating these original wheels and they are of supreme quality and workmanship. Our contact, Dom, not only produces these ‘movie correct’ steering wheels for early Mustangs but he also produces period wheels for all kinds of vintage automobiles.
