That might be a Superior. Looks like it on page 1087 of the 1940 Car Builders Encyclopedia.

Mark,
You can count on all the most common Superior hand wheels to have a "scalloped" outer rim, whether 22" diameter for vertical hand brakes or 16" outer rim for horizontal hand brakes. That held true until 1958 or a bit later when all the hand brake manufacturers adopted the forged (stamped) hand wheel.
