Remember that there are differences between the lights of the US version, and some of the other markets, where the inner lamp was the high-beam, not a fog light.
Aftermarket lights in the US should be correct, but if you source one from EU make sure it's the right one. There are lots of 7" and 5" lights around for Alfas and other Italian cars, but they don't all fit a 2lt 105. If you still have an original Carello item, check the part number so you can check if an aftermarket unit is the right match.
Start out at -
alfapartscatalog.com - go to electrical system - the drop down will take you to lighting. There you will find:
"Fog Light Amber GTV 71 - 74
Go to NAPA online.com
In the search box - key in 4412
This will take you to:
"Head Light Bulb - High Beam
The illustration will show the bulb (clear - not amber) to be 5.7 inches in diameter, with an 8-32 connection screw, and using 35 watts. Do not let the description fool you - this is not a headlamp - it is a fog lamp.
Here are a few observations about head lamps/fog lamps:
Head lamps have three 'shoulders' on the backside (rim area) that act as mounting points to fit into the head light bucket.
Fog lamps have only one 'shoulder' to fit into the fog lamp bucket.
Head lamp electrical connections are push-on.
Fog lamp connections are secured with screws.

So I just got my car details from Centro Documentazione Alfa Romeo and I was curious to know if my car was always red and turned out it was. What did surprise me though is the interior, it says it was originally grey cloth (if google translated it correctly) but I can't find examples of it...
Actually last weekend... drove Bella to Sidco Upholstery in Mountain View. Alex (the owner) hosted an ARA Tech Session on (what else) upholstery restoration, and showed the group his shop, latest equipment (including a CO2 Laser Engraver Cutter) and offered restoration.tips for our Alfa’s. Eight...
At some point over the past couple of years (I suspect at the metal work shop) while by '67 GTV has been undergoing a complete restoration, the trunk lid torsion bars were misplaced. Does anyone have a set of these that they're will to part with - or know where I can get them.
Here we go again

My car has its original wheel rims in steel. They are 14" with currently 195's. I am keen to go back to a narrower tyre and if possible keep these rims. The edges of three of them have been scuffed and a few small indentations after 52 years. I have local place that can refurbish them with...
