A question that I got asked very often

To be honest, there is no simple answer, but it makes sense, to think deeply about it. A steering wheel, what’s that anyway? It is not just a big, round thing that will be necessary until autonomous driving can be seen everywhere. Luckily, that will take more than 10 years from now. And fortunately for our classic cars, this horror vision will never happen.

For me, a steering wheel is kind of a love relationship and the only direct way to show the love relationship too, because it is also the only real connection of the driver and the car. The only connection that gives direct feedback. If I steer strongly, the car responds to it. If I steer too hard, the direct connection will come to an end.

Personally, I prefer old vintage steering wheels for classic cars that can tell a bit of its own history. I’m not alone with that, which of course – also affects the prices. Presumably, Momo thought so too and released a special collection, which goes back to the beginnings of Momo: Momo Heritage. Today I am going to show you the two most important Momo wheels of that collection.

Momo Heritage Prototipo

The Momo Prototipo is certainly the most known wheel among the Momo steering wheels, the demand is unbroken and with the Momo Heritage the symbiosis of old tradition with modern technology is absolutely well accomplished. Just like in the years before, the Momo Prototipo is offered with a diameter of 350mm. What particularly speaks for the Momo Heritage Prototipo in a classic car is that Momo with much effort has given the leather a patinated look. So you get a new steering wheel, but it looks a bit like it’s got some experience already. In addition, Momo has used the stacked logo again – this time on the front. The offer is rounded off by a special Momo Heritage horn button, black with a yellow stacked logo.

Momo Heritage Indy

The perennial favorite among the wooden steering wheels of Momo is and remains the Momo Indy. This steering wheel is available from Momo since the 60s. If you want a wood steering wheel, you should definitely go for that one here. Wood is much more exposed to the tides and forces of nature than leather. It is very common to find cracks in the wood of very old wooden steering wheels, which quickly develop from moisture, drought and heat. Therefore, the Momo Heritage Indy is a real insider tip: the look of the early Indy steering wheels – but with mature and dried wood. Again, with the stacked logo from the period of 1968-1973 and the stacked logo horn button and in diameter 350mm.

In addition, Momo has launched two more steering wheels for the Momo Heritage series, which are very nice, but not directly have such a long tradition, as the Momo Prototipo and the Wooden Momo Indy.
Thats the Momo Heritage Grand Prix and the Momo Heritage California which is available in a leather and a wooden version.

Of course, there is a variety of other steering wheels out there, but if it should be a new steering wheel, then I would recommend one from the Momo Heritage Collection. And if I’ve convinced you otherwise, then have a look what steering wheels are for sale here.
