TR6 Steering Wheel Production Change


Recommended Posts

Afternoon All

 

Wondered if anyone knows the commission number change for the early steering wheel to the later type ( assuming there was only two types)?

 

Also am I right in thinking the very early type was a black finish with circular holes in the spokes, and the later type with slotted spokes?

 

Regards

Kevin,

 

There were in fact three different steering wheels for the TR6 - the first, as you rightly say, was black with holes in the 'spokes' and was 15".

 

To CP50000

From CP50001 (15")

From CR1 to end of production (14.5") and thicker rim - note different centre pad (fake stitches) and horn posh

Hope that helps

 

Cheers

yes that is correct for an early to mid 69 car not sure when they changed Derek Graham would be the man to answer that , the spokes need painting satin black
