I obtained this wheel some years ago for way too much money. It is not from a Pantera but from the original car that used that wheel, a Lancia.

I am using a Grant key lock removable wheel hub for my three spoke LeCarra wheel. I am in the process of mounting the two spoke to a second Grant hub so I can interchange the two wheels.

With due diligence on eBay I did manage to find the proper ghia steering wheel center emblem and have mounted it in a generic horn button kit.

Prototipo is a model of Momo from the 1980's. Was standard on the GT 5 S. If you look behind it you'll find the build date engraved by Momo.

it is rare but by far the Ferrero above is the hen's teeth of the bunch so far.
Thanks David, I had no idea that it was re issued for the 50th anniversary of the company. I think leather is a natural selection for the Pantera, the wood steering wheels just don't sit well on it. I also saved a Momo Grand Prix that I took off my 67 Alfa, it's stamped 7- 1976. The Nardi is really nice.

With this 13in. LeCarra, and then finding that my right knee no longer had to rest against the wheel..........

And then I built a clock center section (that lives in the door pocket) for those long road trips, just like Jay Leno's has!.........

Two questions - PanTTera where did you get the LeCarra from?

And - does anyone have the part number for the right Momo Hub Adaptor for a '71?

Search for an early MK1 Capri adaptor, from which our columns are sourced.

While looking around for a LeCarra Mark 4 (check ebay), I came across the British "Moto-Lita" brand. This one is a dished 13" Mark Four in black leather. I ended up getting it via an ebay seller, who also provided the correct adaptor.

I thought the vented grip was more practical. The smooth leather gets shiny in spots from your sweaty hands polishing the leather.

It's very hard to keep uniform looking.

This is the 350mm Momo "Competition" wheel with Wilkinson's stainless steel quick release mechanism.

It's duller (reduced glare) finish stays more consistent looking. The leather is perforated and basically eliminates the need for driving gloves.


I HAD the LeCarra wheel in the car when I bought it. At some point it seemed outdated and after the quick disconnect became available it was for sure a goner. Cool

...LEcarra Leather.
Notice the column has been Spaced Down 1/4"(at Top Mount Bolts) to bring the top of the Wheel, to just below the 'Line of Sight', of the Hood.

Hey Jan, beautiful interiors! Your cars make mine look like it´s ready for the junkyard.

On a side note, are your floor mats all custom made? I have a particular interest in the type with the red logo, (in your red GT5S, I presume).

Any info would be great, thanks!

Oye vey! Boobbabla!

The adapters are specific to the Pantera. They are solid aluminum, and not the whimpy collision collapsible type that the sissy fagot boys use.

I'm very sure that I got mine from the Momo dealer with the wheel...and yes they were on Ebay.

There ARE some reliable people selling on there BUT one needs to be able to distinguish them from the Unicorn dealers?

Hall and Wilkinson both carry them in stock.

These are two different cars, but this the same wheels.

Yes, those are the same configuration as mine, i.e., same core, different finish.
The top curve of the spokes helps with the view of the instruments. Depth of the dish works well with the arm length positioning for me.
I find the perforated leather easier to grip then the smooth but that is personal preference on my part.

Thanks! Yes, the red logo mats are I presume were made (outsourced) by the builder (the old legendary Fat Jack). I am guessing possibly through Hall Pantera. I can take some close up if you want with a ruler next to it. I have receipts about 2" thick on that car, so I could look there too. Email me if you want: ciao4u2@aol.com

This in the link below shows what Hall has, but maybe they could do the red logo:

Here is my suede MOMO wheels with the GT40 style center that I offer. I have these in 6 bolt MOMO/Sparco pattern or the 5 bolt Grant pattern in bare billet aluminum as well as anodized black.
