Nardi steering wheel

I want to swap the stock steering wheel in my 83 380 Sl for a Nardi wheel. What size wheel/adapter would I need and is it a DIY job?

You will need the Mercedes specific Nardi wheel adapter to bolt/fasten the steering wheel to the steering shaft.

It is a DIY job, provided you have a 10mm allen head socket and a very long breaker bar.

Getting the wheel centered properly can be difficult, however it can be sorted out while having the front wheels aligned.

You will want the 390mm wheel. Classico in Sarasota is a good source of wheels. The guy can be somewhat of a pill to deal with but has good prices and the quality of product is very good. His hubs are quality and his horn buttons, which really make or break the wheel are outstanding.

I went to his shop a couple of years ago and does all the fab work on the hubs at his shop and the quality is great. You can get either brushed aluminum, high polished aluminum or a baked enamel finish as a counter balance color to the spokes.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
