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.

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

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.

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?

All you need to look at is the lower spoke.

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

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 too...my 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.

The date code 405 = 5th week of 1974

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

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?
