In near new condition, $400. When you see NIB ones come up for sale on forum classifieds they go for $500+. As time keeps marching on they'll keep going up in price.

Although I'd just buy a Redline steering wheel wrap for around $100 for my money and just re-wrap the stock wheel myself. Looks great, cheap, you can customize and even if you have your wheel sent to an installer its still way cheaper than a FR500. If you can find one.

I don't see any difference between that steering wheel and a regular leather wrapped Mustang wheel.
Is the wrap thicker or something?
What else do you have laying around for sale Mustangguy?
I can see some carpet in the pic... Is that Dark Charcoal?

It's got extra padding and perforated leather. Carpet is not mine. What are you looking for?

I was just looking at it again. I can see that now.

Nothing in particular but I'm always interested in Factory 01 Bullitt parts.

Did not come factory on anything but is a FRPP piece. Group buy for them (last time they were available new) was $250 per wheel IIRC. Street price is $400-$500 used and $500-$600 new depending on the person and the current availability, as in how many ppl have them for sale.

As is stated, the wheel is thicker, has the perforated leather on it and was available in 94-98 Ebony and 99-04 Charcoal. As I also stated, unless one is going to REQUIRE that FR500 wheel specifically, it is 1/4 the price to buy a Redline wheel wrap which you can have customized to however you want with leather/microsuede/both etc... and DIY or ship it to one of their certified installers and still wind up paying half or less than a used FR500.

Leather steering wheel covers - RedlineGoods leather shift boots

Sorry to anyone, including the OP, trying to sell one of these but (IMO) you'd be smoking crack to pay the FR500 prices over a good used OEM wheel or a Redline redo cover that you can customize/add extra foam/have the 10/2 padding added etc...

I'm buying Cliffy's steering wheel off of his old GT.
I need an OE wheel for Bullitt #2 but that FR500 does look like a nice piece.

So this thread got me looking into the New Edge FR500 Mustang and now, goddamnit... I WANT ONE!!!!!

$500-$600 nowadays for one NIB never used. They have not made them in a long time. Better off spending your money on a Redline re-wrap.

I sold my NIB spare in 2014. The Redline goods seemed like a nice option but there lower seams are in a stupid location and completely ruins the look
