Default 05 Mustang options help please

I am looking at a 2005 Mustang V6 - it has a GT grille and leather wrapped steering, but cloth seats.

I know some people install GT grilles but the leather steering wheel has got me wondering i.e. what if the previous owner swapped out the steering, didn't install it properly. There's an airbag involved...

Do I have cause for concern? Was a leather wrapped steering available as an individual option for 2005?

I have a 08 v6 with a leather steering wheel. If it's OEM, I wouldn't be concerned. You can find out what options your pony came with -

Also, is easy to install OEM leather seat covers. I found some on ebay, took about 3 hours to install.

I don't think it should be any cause for concern. The leather steering wheel is a nice option. There are aftermarket steering wheels available and they aren't that hard to install. I've had the entire dash in my car out before to paint it and I had to remove the passenger air bag. As long as the bag hasn't deployed you're good to go.

Hey cool find! That's not really that expensive either. I might look into that as well.
