MG MGA - Factory Literature 4 the optional Steering wheel


Clausager's book 'Original MGA' has the following details for this optional extra:
Wood rim light alloy steering wheel supplied as an optional extra from Dec. 1957. Described as 'Italian Style', supplied by Bluemels (type SW/544 BMC part no. AHH5800-Y

I'm looking for any factory literature that lists this option?

I know is "not" listed in either:
1500 factory printed MGA sales brochures, one even titled MGA Accessories. Not a mention of an alloy wheel in any of them. Nor in the 1 1600 or 2 MkII brochures either. Nor in the USA printed brochures that Hambros printed up

Thanks in advance.

Anyone dig anything up in their archives on this option yet?
