This is another deep dished 380 mm Prototipo prototype from a CSL
That is more shallow and less holes than the only prototype that I am familiar with. Any 380mm prototipo is hens teeth, especially one with that shape.

This is the first CSL brochure with a non-factory momo. You know the pic, as I posted it in your personal-based prototipo wheel thread. Side note, these also aren’t production scheels. They are earlier lighter racing scheels. Hence the distinctive shape.

Just noticed today when repainting my trim ring that even the plastic hub cover has the Petri logo

What can the wheel guys tell me about the 38cm "Formel" wheel I bought for my car? I like the placement of the spokes. The mahogany rim is quite thin,however so I wear driving gloves.

Late 60’s early 70’s period wheel. Former had a number of wheels. @Hans W. has sold a few I think.

According to my info, Formel was a German company.
The wooden Formel steering wheels had to compete with the brands from England ( Formula/Speedwell, Moto Lita, Walsall/Les Leston etc. ).
I should have a picture somewhere from a sixties catalog, showing this model Formel steering wheel.
