Original 38cm Alpina Steering wheels

Just wanted to share with forum a couple of original 38cm Momo Alpina Steering wheels I have been able to acquire through some degree of concerted effort. The silver one I obtained from Germany over a year ago from a collector. He is mostly a Porsche guy so was willing to let this one go. Although, I was made aware that Alpina wheels were in fact marketed to Porsche owners back in the day (see the fine print on the ad below in the top right corner). I never thought I would see another one, at least not anytime soon but a few weeks ago an e9 owner posted the black one on a steering wheel thread, and well, I couldn’t resist to pair it up with my other. These are 1st generation Alpina wheels commissioned by Alpina for Gianpiero Moretti’s fairly young company at the time MoMo (an acronym for the first two lettters of Moretti and Monza). The straight line MOMO stamping on the back indicates these were manufactured around ‘66-‘67. While a later more coveted nowadays 38cm version came standard issue on carbed e9 CSL’s, these earlier 38cm Momo Alpina wheels were designed for and used on 2002’s - making them much more badass ;). Well, at least certainly more rare. The leather on the black one is about toast, but they are overall both in great condition and I am beyond thrilled to have found them. And hey, they are in pretty good condition for being over 50 years old! Enjoy the pictures! J

John,

 

I think finding a single one of these wheels rates a “holy sh*t!” so I’m at a loss for words seeing you’ve found two.... 😋

 

Best regards,

 

Steve

Hey Al, did you get that from Robin? I saw he had that for sale, and it’s definitely an old Momo. I just don’t know anything about the wood ones so I passed on it. Looks cool though! John

Yes from Robin, super excited about it. I’ll find out more from MOMO and Alpina and respond.
