Although “Speedwell Steering wheels” seem to have taken on an almost legendary status
recently. In period, they weren’t really that special.
Speedwell only offered one type of accessory steering wheel, this was a 15” wood
rimmed, aluminium spoked wheel that was manufactured by Formula, it had a black plastic
centre & accepted a standard Mini type horn push.
There were other variants available i.e. the VW type, but this followed the same
basic pattern, 15”, wood rimmed, manufactured by Formula.
Please see a few examples below.
