Where are the indicator lights on a 1970 Berlina?

A friend of mine bought a Euro 1970 Berlina 1750. This is the first model the floor pedals.

We want to make a road going trackday car and one of the ideias was removing the bumpers.

Thats were the problem begins, this berlina has the indicator and driving lights on the bumpers. Were all euro 1750 berlinas like that?

Do you guys have any idea where and how could I relocate the to the body? In a way it would look like a period modification (aka 1750 GTAm style)...

The indicator lights are between the bumper and the headlights this is for the euro model.
On the US model the indicators goes below the bumper.

yeah I know. But this berlina I'm talking about has the installed ON the bumper like the GTV1750 Mk1. Are all 1750 berlinas like that?

Is there any model that has the indicator lights on the body?

Joao yes the 1750 berlina like its GTV brother had a change during its model life from bumper mounted to body mounted. I would say your friends car is probably very early 70 (probably even 1969 build) with these lights.

My 1970 Euro 1750 Berlina had blinker lights mounted below the headlamps, ie, not on the bumper. In my experience all Euro model Berlinas are like this.

are the indicator lights similar to the berlina 2000 model? I have a pair of those laying around. I could use them and the car would still look original...

Parking Lights

Hi magista,
I have a '69 euro Berlina (purchased new) that has the lights on top of the bumper, same as the GT's. I have found that the American market cars seem to have them under the bumper, and later all had them on the body under the headlights.
I would also note that my '69 does not have any side marker lights at all, such as the "button" type that the U.S. cars of the period had. The cars also had euro lighting and amber direction lens in the tail lights.
My car is a Canadian market car, we got euro spec cars up untill about late '70 early '71 then we got North American spec cars (injected)
Regards Ian.

I think all non-US Berlinas of all years had them above the bumper, on the body. 69 US cars had the trapezoidal amber lights in the cutout under the bumper, and 71 and later US cars had the larger amber ones, also used on GTVs and Spiders.

Lights

Andrew,
Sorry but non U.S. '69 did NOT have them on the body, the lights are on top of the bumper, I have a '69 Berlina in my garage. The body mounted lights came later.
Regards Ian

Oops, you're right. I even had an early non-US bumper with the holes for the lights on top, and should have known better.
