I'll sell my Chapman signature steering wheel for that, and throw in the horn push for free!

I thought they were wood rim wheels - why is this one leather covered?
For that price you would expect it to be original and in perfect condition to start with,given you could get a totally new replica made for the same cost

cheers

Is it a '63 LoCort S/E wheel? I suspect a tall man with a Bumpy will be along shortly and put us straight :D

Early Elans and Cortinas had spoke 120 degrees apart as this one is, but they were phased out on Elans pretty early on. At the end of '63, the S/E became available on Cortinas and that had the leather rim. Super-rare item, but I'm not sure about ?2500!!! Len Chandler has had them re-made; they are much stronger and look pretty much the same. and sell for ?300 or so.

What price originality?
