The following picture was posted on rollsroyceforums.com by someone who's recently acquired a 1973 Corniche.
I have never seen an OEM wheel cover like this in my time dealing with cars from Crewe, and it doesn't strike me as being Crewe-issued for a number of reasons. Even if it is genuine, it certainly wouldn't have been available even bespoke in 1973, would it?
I believe this is most likely an aftermarket wheel cover or, best case, taken from a much later car and transplanted.
What is the opinion of the cohort?

I think it is a standard hubcap from a Wraith/Corniche that someone has drilled a locking device into. The locking device is probably an after market item but I have seen many Shadows that also had locks fitted to their hubcaps.

Correct and Common as muck. Corniche, Camarges, Wraiths had them as standard.
Hythe Road had them coming out of their ears. lol.
Lock is an extra - does it go all the way through or just a sticky fake one?
