Hello Hans-Peter,
Actually what I did was buy a '71 front clip from APE, drilled out the spot welds for the two headlight sheet metal brackets, then riveted these into my '72. The fog lights sit just where they should, the outer hi/lo beams sit in the correct location, and adjustments to both are stock (well, '68 stock at least!). The next trick was figuring out a grill. I like the larger '72 triangular portion, so I created a new single bar to connect the fog to the center triangular grill. Again, all looks to the naked eye like this is how the car left the factory, which is my intent with any modification I make to an Alfa.
Sincerely,
Peter

Well I think your front looks better than either factory setup, I might try a 2 Litre sheild on my 1750.

I'm still running the 1300, Randy. Last summer it got a new head gasket and Roland sent me a good set of Webers to replace the Solexes. A good running Alfa is such a delight to drive.

With the 5.12 rear end, the little 1.3 motor isn't a sluggard at all and can easily keep up with modern traffic. You just have to get used to running at
4k rpm to get anywhere.

A couple of friends helped me pull the engine out of the Alfetta a couple of weekends ago. I'm planning on building it but I'm not in a great hurry. A more pressing need is new rear suspension bushings which really need to be replaced. 2nd gear synchro is bad, something I knew about when I bought the car, but I have an almost new close ratio gearbox that will work well with the 5:12 gears. With that long first gear it'll be a blast to drive.

It was fun shooting the photos. The little car positively glowed in the afternoon light. Of course everywhere I park it people ask what it it is. Supers are real celebrities.

Thanks to Roland/Giulia Blanca's help and the advice of fellow BBers (including you, of course) I found a car I can enjoy for years to come.
