1750 GTV – March 2009

Time passes.  March 2009.  Stripped door hardware, wiring loom, brake lines, fuel tank (revealing a sadly rusty boot floor), and the heater box.  Car is looking quite bare now.  Starting to wonder who will do the body repairs…

  1. Hi there,

    This is Soo and Derek told me to check out your website, so this is what you have been up to…. great project by the way.

    Can you tell me what headlamps the GTV 1750 MK 1 uses. Most of friends with Mk 2s have the beaded textured outer headlamps with bold script Carello and inner headlamps are also bold script Carello.

    I have the inner lamps with cursive script Carello but what do I use for the outer headlamps, can you please enlighten me?

  2. Hi there Soo,

    I’ve replied by email. The inner and outer headlamps on my car have what I think you mean by the bold script Carello (bold capitals, not cursive). The parts manual is inconclusive, although the carello part number for both inner and outer headlamps is different to what is on my car.
