Rare "FATTY"/Thick Grip HUB CENTRIC 3 Spoke Steering Wheel
SOLD. Thanks to those who shared their knowledge!

This is a genuine FATTY identified by the Concentric hub and the grip that measures 4" in circumference. All of the stitching is GONE. All 3 horn contact points and springs are intact. Horn Pad is in great shape.

What is the part number?

Rodney Nelson 01-25-2018 05:23 PM

Beautiful, with just the right amount of love. Good Luck With the Sale!

sparkie993 01-25-2018 05:36 PM

I don't see a part number on the wheel, but I believe it's 911.347.084.01-FATTY

JMS935 01-25-2018 05:47 PM

That’s it, but I’m apprehensive about making an offer without the part number shown.

I believe that Sparkle is correct, 911 347 084 01. I've never seen a part number on one of these. It is the Option 565 380mm steering wheel. They were available for '74-'77? Carrera and 930s.
They are getting scarce. There are wheels for sale on Ebay that are standard 3 spoke wheels that have been rewrapped to thick grip, but they are not concentric. This so called authentic rewrap is not a concentric wheel.

Arbee is correct. There is no part number on these. But that's absolutely an authentic wheel at a good price.

Good to know. I'm the lucky owner of two. Humbly....

Arbee 01-25-2018 06:17 PM

There was one that sold on Ebay a couple of weeks ago for $300. The seller didn't know what they had and someone got lucky.

I've seen this happen too. Some sellers don't know what they have and the wheels can be hard to positively identify if the photos aren't very good. I've spent many a moment looking closely at a photo onine and wondering is it or isn't it?

Arbee 01-25-2018 06:45 PM

All you need to look at is the lower spoke.

maninblack 01-25-2018 07:10 PM

Yes, but photographed from certain angles it can be tough to tell.

rsnodgrass 01-25-2018 08:21 PM

There is a date code stamping inside the hub of the wheel which identifies time period and whether it could be a 1974-1975 Carrera Style wheel. Photos of the inside of the hub may help us identify it better Sport steering wheel has a "32" stamped inside. My later Sport steering wheels from 1976 and 1977 had "34" stamped inside. I don't have enough photos of that marking inside to determine if it actually identifies the model differences or not.

Date stamp in my fattie, for reference

Billthebuilder 01-26-2018 06:45 AM

This thread started with rare fatty and I don't see any girls!

rsnodgrass 01-26-2018 08:35 AM

The date code 405 = 5th week of 1974

With enough photos perhaps we can figure out what 31/32/33/34 relates to.

maninblack 01-26-2018 09:08 AM

Ryan - I don't have a verified 76/77 sport wheel to compare. Is there a physical difference between the 74/75 wheels and the 76/77 thick grip wheels? Or just stamping differences?

sparkie993 01-26-2018 09:42 AM

I can't seem to upload a photo to this thread, but the date stamp on mine is 419... 19th week of 1974.

JMS935 01-26-2018 03:19 PM

I'll take it. The check is in the mail...Literally.
