Postby john.p.clegg » Fri Apr 08, 2016 9:51 am

Hello All
Newbie here,I've just come across a steering wheel with the C.Chapman signature,first thoughts were Lotus Elan but with it having a deeper dish ruled that out.
Some info...
15" diameter
4" dish
3 slotted spokes with thumb spats
C.Chapman signature
13/16" diameter rim
Leather-look plastic cover
Hornpush dated 1968..

It's not standard fit for any Lotus Cortina. But maybe another type of lotus. Its identical except dish then to an Elan one
