It was advertised as 70's paddy hopkirk but early or late I don't know, style looks early to me, 13 1/2" with a  4 1/2" dish

looks like Anita Taylors style wheel

thats a nice wheel!

the wheel is pretty close, in style , I may very carefully drill all the holes 1mm larger with a cone drill and remove the 3 pieces of leather off the spokes only if they are not stitched to the outer leather rim, then fit the anglia badge in the centre

No sorry. Sure mk2 has a bigger diameter. Incidently I have an old wheel and boss from my Dad's mk1 Lotus Cortina which fits the mk1 Escort......
Looks like you'll have to wait til it arrives

I cant tell from the pic but based on the cars that share the early splines I think you should be good. Its a nice wheel.

Is it enough difference that it won't fit or will it be a case of when I turn a corner the car goes straight on?

Difference is enough...mk1 too small for mk2 and vice versa
