Porsche Crest MoMo Signature steering wheels Overview

Hi guys!

I've been collecting steering wheels for a while now and really fell in love with the Signature series MoMo wheels. I know I'm not the only one here but the information about these wheels is widely spread. I'll try to mention every different model and version but I'm sure there are some MoMo guru's around here who'll have more information and models. Please correct me if information is wrong or inclomplete so we combine our knowledge and create a clear and complete Signature Catalog

Edits:
- Added a 1988 momo folder with steering wheels.

A quick overview:

- Gianpiero Moretti (only non leather wheel)
- Jackie Stewart
- Jacky Ickx
- Clay Regazzoni
- Niki Lauda
- Mario Andretti
- Ronnie Peterson
- George Follmer
- Roland Ash
- Gilles Villeneuve
- Dieter Quester? (New picture, need more info on this!)

First of all, production dates:

Again, please correct me if this information is wrong!

before '70: Stacked Mo Mo logo



'70 - '72: No logo, only "made in Italy"




'73 - '75: Model number

'76 - up: Date stamp

Early horn buttons had the chrome trim and no MoMo logo on the backside.


Gianpiero Moretti, Italian racing driver and the founder of the MOMO company in the 1960's.

The Signature:



The helmet horn button: (as far as I know this wasn't sold with the steering wheel)



The signature horn button:
Unknown

The Wheel:

I found a new horn button today, no better pictures yet but it's a Dieter Quester helmet.

I'll add it to the list as soon as I got more info and pictures!

Thank you for sharing! I was previously unaware of these. I have a small Momo collection now; it'd be a dream to find the Niki Lauda wheel for my girlfriend's car. She already has the '84 World Championship decal on the quarter window!

Yes, the horn buttons were very cool. Are any of them being reproduced?

Obviously the Niki Lauda wheel is the coolest one.


Perhaps the original post should be edited to move it to the top?

Great thread until we get to entry 18 which tarnishes it somewhat...

Can anyone chime in about the difference in the 2 signatures and how to possibly tell a real deal from a fake? Also if someone has a picture of the back of an original horn button too that would be helpful.
