I am 6'4" and have never seen the top of the G speedo :)

Not OEM, but highly recommend. The feel is just great and works pretty well with (or without) the wood floor slats.

I'm guessing a Nardi 380mm with 10mm dish or close to it?

Sorry for the late reply. Didn’t see or get a notification for this.

So it’s a Nardi 390mm classic line wood wheel, black spokes with the adapter collar kit they make for the G Wagen, so it all fits. I contacted Nardi, sent them a Pantone code, had them make the center star and delete the horn function (as the horn is on the blinker stalk).

Those with 460s that cannot see the speedo simply swap the 2 large gauges putting the speedo on the right side of your cluster. Then you will be able to view right hand side of the gauge. Being 6'3" I did this years ago on my 460 300GD. Being a diesel rarely did I ever need to view the right hand side of the speedo.
