The most comprehensive resource for the early mini fan anywhere

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.
