Mustang 93 Cobra Style Steering Wheel
Whether you're looking to replace the old steering wheel on your 1993 Cobra, or 1990-1993 SSP Mustang, 5.0 Resto's 93 Cobra style steering wheel is the solution to restore your interior the right way. One of the most overlooked parts of your Mustang (that sees more use than any other part of the car) is your steering wheel. With over 30+ years of use, the factory steering wheel is usually worn smooth and falling apart by now. 5.0 Resto's steering wheel replaces your worn wheel with an entirely new wheel, not a recovered core!

Non-Cruise Control Specific
What made the 93 Cobra steering wheel different is the fact these cars had no cruise control from the factory. SSP Mustangs typically did not have cruise control either, but it was an option. Therefore, this steering wheel has no provisions for the cruise control buttons to mount as there would be on a regular 1990-1993 Mustang steering wheel. 5.0 Resto's steering wheel is a great restoration piece for these cars, as well as Mustang owners looking to delete the cruise control from their Fox Body or Cobra owners looking to preserve their factory steering wheel.

5.0 Resto Quality Materials
Starting off with a new frame, this brand new steering wheel is then molded in factory style, textured material that has provisions for your horn buttons as well as your stock airbag. After the molding process, the steering wheel is then wrapped in simulated black leather that greatly improves grip and feel. To complete the process, the wheel is then stitched with black thread for a clean, high-class appearance.

Installation Note
Excessive force during installation could cause damage to the steering wheel. Ensure the proper tools (steering wheel puller) and force are used to prevent damage.
Horn buttons, airbag, and airbag clock spring are not included.

Fitment Note
This steering wheel will work for customers that have removed the factory cruise control equipment from their Fox Body.

Application
Fits 1990-1993 Mustang w/o Cruise Control
