Beautiful car...it looks fantastic.
To me, it wouldn't look right without the minilites...just finishes it off perfectly.

All the car needs is Cromodora Daytona wheels.

Why is is that many think that everybody else’s choice of wheels is ‘wrong’?
Not picking on any one contributor, but I don’t get it...

For me it just looks more Italian, more Ferrari-like. Cromodora Daytona style wheels are also period-correct for car.

Thanks mate. I’m also thinking about taking off the bumpers as well. I’m definitely taking off the rubber bumperettes.
I’m an Aussie as well. Been in the US 18 years....my first car was a 1969 1750 in Sydney!

Thank you.

You all have been great thank you. I will post pics when done. Luckily the car is already restored. I’ve been looking for a good 69 1750 but this one with the 1750 in it already does the trick. Love it. I also have a 1969 ex racer Lancia. Front wheel drive versus rear wheel but also an amazing car.And it has Cromodoras on it! ��
Cheers

Personally I think you should replace the front bumper with a steel I-beam and mount a series of rally lights across the front. Then replace those hideous Rotas with some nice 155 steelies... But of course it's your car...

Cheers, Fulvias have been largely undervalued for a long time. They are well built cars. Pity the brand is basically gone but Fiat still remains

Thanks it’s lots of fun. Are you sure you like the wheels?
And NO extra rally lights!
