Ok, so what does the stock '73 12A RX-4 sedan steering wheel look like? Mine has the RX-5 wheel with the metal spokes and wooden rim.

Damned if I can find a picture of one, but you can see in the below brochure, they are still basically a four spoke design, but with a bigger flatter single piece centre section rather than having the smaller separate horn pad in the middle.

there is 5 different steering wheel used in a rx4

1.coupe and sedan where different from 72-8/73 as shown in Dazz pic
Sedan:Image


2.Then the wheels were the same from 8/73-9/75 (looks like the coupe wheel but different part number from one above)
Image


3.And the last was 10/75 ~ end of series, one looked almost the same at the first coupe wheel but come it 2 different composites and then the wood wheel as Keith stated
First option:Image
Wood grain:Image


I will scan the pic from the parts books when i get a chance and post them up for you to see

I think that the pre 10/75 cars different steering wheels had to do with the copcit/no cockpit style dashboards. A cockpit style dashboard sedan was carrying the "coupe" steering wheel. In fact was a custom/sedan/hardtop split as for JDM.

According to the parts book for LHD cars (production started 10/73, single dizzy 12A or 13B) the steering wheel is the same for both sedan and hardtop (1175 32 980). After 10/75 (facelift) there was still the option of the "uretane" wheel (1175 32 980B (see above), or the 1934 32 980B that was used in 616, plus the more usual wooden one (8520 32 980). I maybe wrong but I ve seen photos of the after 10/75 US cars carrying the older style wheels.
