Looks like a Minilite or similar style.

It says “Minilite” on the wheel. I believe Panasport might have owned them at some point.

I purchased a couple sets of Minilites for a vintage Boss 302 Trans Am car I owned in the past. They are manufactured in England and imported. The company I purchased them from ( Main Street Motors I think) does not seem to be around any longer but there is a "MiniliteUS" website. Hope this helps.

If you're looking to just replace one, these probably aren't close enough but if you're looking to buy a full set they're really close.

All the suggested wheels are 2 piece if that matters to you. For a one pice, likely have to go here.

Ron's source is likely to be the same as the wheel you already have so, other than the difference in appearance attributable to age, the replacement wheel should be identical to the old wheel.

The Vintage wheel will look very similar but things like the cast in place lettering on the wheel will be different. Although the Vintage wheel is in fact a cast one piece wheel if someone looked at one of your original wheels and then the replacement wheel, the different cast in place lettering would be a dead giveaway.

As long as the Minilte alternative is still available I would probably go that route just for continuity.
