Not super rare, as they are out there. But, super stoked to find one NOS.
Also was able to find the correct style hanger as seen in the accessory catalog as well.

Scored an NOS 15’ Empi gt steering wheel locally I was the 2nd person to remove it from the box since purchased new in 1970. The person that sold it to me was the first. The kid lost his job so his father in-law went into the attic and said to sell it for a few bucks his father in-law bought it for his bug bit ended up selling it and never got a chance to put the Empi steering wheel on it.




Wow, amazing score on the wheel.

I have this, not sure how rare it is? I was going to fit it in my '58 but never got round to it and probably never will. I think I will sell it on to somebody who will appreciate it more as it's just sat on a shelf in the garage.

I'm not 100% sure about those exact ones but those sorts of recliners are not rare at all
Here's another similar one
https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=2167963
It hasn't sold in 18 months so that is too much money

I'm not sure of the value but I swear I've seen those at swap meets for like $20 used.

I see an older ad from this year for an NOS set like yours for $50.

I believe someone has reproduced them in the past as well.

The stamped metal type like that don't seem to be tremendously popular. Even the far superior HULS type that do sell for good money often don't get used because people don't want to cut their seat.

Fair enough. Thanks for the replies - I'll leave it on the shelf and pass it on for my kids to argue over!

NOS Empi vacuum gauge. This is definitely one of the rarest empi gauges so far this Is only one of 2 of these known to exist. My friend actually found this and passed it on to me.

Kinda along the same lines. I just found this one locally. Gentlemen was a Porsche guy from back in the day who bought it new and never installed it.
Pretty stoked to say the least.
