Steve105 Here are two coils I found.

Vivace It does look good - thank you.

Gary Plumb Hi Vivace, Because the battery is 'on show' in the engine bay and not hidden in the boot I thought a period looking battery would look better. I got mine from here - https://www.shieldbatteries.co.uk/ap...assic-car.html.

Vivace Exactly. He was an interesting guy - University of Washington professor, with a Maserati, two Alfas, and 60s Mustangs and Barracudas. He was a professor and a weekend bracket racer. Hence the hot rod ignition coil. I've always planned on replacing it with correct, but it works!

You guys probably won't like mine....Installed by the PO in the mid-80s. Completely wrong and in the wrong place....but it has never not started!

Gary Plumb Thank you for the pictures Ranz, that was exactly what I was looking for.

The common concensus then, seems to be that this coil (black with brown top and green/blue "Made in Germany" oval BOSCH decal is the one that's correct.

Thank you all for your input - now I know what I'm trying to replicate - I think it might be wise to go with a new coil with a brown top and make the rest of it look like the original in Ranz pictures.

Steve105 The UK seat belt compliance plates look good.
I would be interested in two of them.

Sticker colour looks a faded green, more than blue.
Thank you for for posting those pictures. I think the new one is a close match and might work for most folks. A little black paint and a sticker, good to go.

That plate is for UK seat belt compliance. I've seen a few other marques with that same plate on them. Gary had one made for his car. I provided the graphics and the company he found did a fantastic job. The best part was they do one offs at an affordable price. Gary's picture below.

kuni123456 I have a Bosch coil that has a black body with a red top part number 0 221 500 002. I have an Alfa Parts Book and it said that you car could have used a Bosch or Marelli coil. The Marelli coil has a external ballast resistor similar to what was used on later Alfas, and the Bosch coil only has an Alfa Part number. I did not realize that Marelli coil and distributors were used on 105 series cars. I used to own a 1967 Spider and it had Bosch electrics.
