Does anyone know what the original steering wheel looks like for a 1973 Standard Beetle? My steering wheel has the Woldfburg Crest on it but I wonder if that's original or a replacement.

The "73" has a 4 spoke black plastic cover that covers the center and wheel spokes . It acts as the horn button. They made a change in "72" that was different than the earlier models which had a chrome horn ring with a plastic center with the crest.

My 73 has one too, I was also wondering about this.
