70 Rim Blow

It's definitely a 1970 Rim Blow steering wheel. It isn't real wood. It's plastic that's grained and stained to look like wood. The center section should also be a wood vinyl insert. If I'm not mistaken, the standard non-XR7 steering wheel was a 2 spoke design.

Horn switch works if that's the switch you mean, it was unhooked (wire ) i plugged it back in an surprisingly it did work, i was curious about the wheel because the one's i've seen had a round center emblem, the tape i think is holding the plastic/woodgrain on thanks

Rimblow

It looks like a rimblow steering wheel. Looks like the one I have! Mine needs restoring and you can have it done for about $400. You are missing the running cat in the center. Mine has no wood grain look at all. I have a '72 XR-7.
