    It was a Ferrero two spoke in my car when I collected it, dont know if the horn button is correct though.

    Here (in a lousy scan -- sorry) is the correct Ferrero horn push; silver -- not "gold" as I said previously -- on black:

    That's very true -- just as there were several different versions of the Ferrero "HF" model. I wouldn’t swear to dates or every detail, but I’ve had a number over the years – early, late, and repro. So I think I have this pretty much right:

    The earliest version has a sewn "filler" strip at the inside circumference – two rows of stitching. It has script "Ferrero" stamped on the front of the left spoke. This version uses the silver-on-black horn push. These are from around 1969(?), and it’s what I’m running now. Most people aren’t familiar with this version. I’ve only seen one other, and when its Ferrero-expert owner posted a photo of it on FB (last week), the Italians were arguing with him that it must be a fake.


    The next version used a glued flush seam at the inside circumference and a glued lap seam at 6 o’clock. These were originally stamped in block letters, "Ferrero" on the front of the left spoke, and I believe these also used the silver-on-black push; I believe these were about 1970-1971. Munari won Monte-Carlo in January 1972, after which point the "Sandro Munari" autograph is stamped on the front of the right spoke, with "Ferrero" on the back of the left spoke. At some point they changed the horn push to the blue lancia shield on white circle, as in Tim’s photo. I’ve had one of each of these (both gone to good homes long ago).


    The late ones used a glued flush seam at the back of the wheel and a glued lap seam at 6 o’clock. These have the "Sandro Munari" autograph, with "Ferrero" on the rear. These also used the blue shield on white push. I have one in 325mm (Stratos size – now all I need is the car...).

    Tor it is and was fitted to Works 1.3HF's from 1967 as was the wheel (as per my 1.3HFR). I have a Sandro Munari wheel as well but I find it too dished for my liking so have opted for a flat ferraro (320mm I think) for my 1600 HF. I have correct Ferraro Stratos Stradale style 4 spoke wheel fitted to my Strato's Transformer early round arch Group 4 body (but Stradle interior just to be different...) (yes a replica because I cannot afford a real one either....)
