  3. Unsure of GTV motor origin

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    This GTV I saw for sale at a show has a correct serial number for a 1974 US version GTV but the engine number I could not figure out. I'm sure on here there are a few people who can? The original looking engine number is 01500*11480 (could also be 04500*11480). Thanks!
