Clutching at straws a bit, but Warwick University hold some correspondence between the Standard Motor Co and Coronet cars about the supply of suspension units. The steering wheels of the Coronet and a 1957 Standard Eight look remarkably similar.

Dear Keith and Albert

Rumcars exists to help people with these Rare and unusual microcars, and to do this we do ask that you register your cars with us. If you have just purchased the cars we need to know if it is one we already know about or one that has not yet been registered.

The process is very simple so there is no excuse. I am sure you appreciate that sharing knowlege works both ways.

We look forward to receiving your vehicle details via our registra.

dont know if this helps at all , it's probably nothing new to you . incidentally period article and both black AND white steering wheel feature , and it appears the same as Rusty Chrome suggested .

I did only use that picture as it gave a very clear view of the interior, but in case you missed the link, its the Coronet shown in the second link at the Lane Motor Museum (544 NHX).

My examples had off white Standard steering wheels. The front suspension is effectively Standard. Have you got the one with the Villiers 3T engine? If so it is wrong unfortunately. Fortunately the 3T might be worth more than a blower Excelsior, if you can find one. If it has no blower it will not get far without overheating. There are two types of blower and the side mounted one is not really that bright as it cools the near cylinder at the expense of transferring its heat to the further. Often wondered what would happen if you put a Dolphin engine in with a rad set up to get the engine cool. A car let down by a engine inadequate for the task in hand.

He made the entire image smaller so it did not flow off the screen. Unfortunately one cannot read the text at this size.
So I prefer the original file that Richard posted despite its large size.

Just another question about the coronet, does anyone know what windscreen it uses or was it a special screen ??
