Need info on XA/B GT S/wheel?.

Well I just want to mention that today I went down to Pearcedale(other side of Melbourne) with my G'friend's family to see her Uncle, he is a Ford man and a really nice bloke, anyway I've been there before and he has had a XB Fairmont just sitting in his backyard,not his car though, now on this 'Mont is a set of genuine Bathurt's globe's only on the back though and an aftermarkrt set of globe's on the front and I've allway's said to him I wanted them but the owner didn't want to part with them,(dam'n) but alas today he said I could have them(you ripper) and I could also have the GT steering wheel on it as well,so I snapped that up straight away,but I'm not sure whether it is a GS or GT wheel,can anybody post a pic of a GT and GS steering wheel of an XA/B so I can tell which one I have,cheer's.

Sorry Fordy I'll be hanging on to these to put with my other B'globe's,sorry mate,
apollo, the centre is in fantastic condition,the wood grain is smooth but good the only problem is a crack in the top of the wheel,but I'm sure it is repairable.

Re: Need info on XA/B GT S/wheel?.

The whole car is there minus the engine and box which was a 351 and auto(I was too slow to get that)do they have a GT/GS dash like the XW/Y's because it had a tacho that read to 70 and the speedo that went to 240,If I had a trailer I would have grabed the car but I only really wanted the rim's and s/wheel,it did have air and all the gear for the air was still there,but I'm only really interested in XW/Y stuff so I couldn't be bothered taking the car,and this bloke just want's the car of his property.
