Can someone help me identify these headlamps. In 1990, I asked my dad to bring me some replacement headlamps for my 85 GTV 2.5 from Italy and these are the lights he brought back. Although they are the right size, they are not the proper fitment. So.... it would be nice to know where they could fit. They are obviously for a 4 headlamp system all the same size with a diameter of 14.5 cm. The single bulb headlamp is stamped 03 152 800 and the 2 bulb lamp seems to have 03 051 800 stamped on it. The double bulb lamp has a small bulb at the bottom. It is a quartz halogen system.0.
Thanks for your insight. James

They look like my original Alfetta GT headlamps, I know have Hella's installed.
Are they the inner highbeams?

I believe they are inner high beams, Carello's of course.
Thanks for the info. James

I have a set of alfetta lamps (H4) and originals. 1978 US car year does not have the plastic lugs. just glass or metal small squares to fit the metal housings....

are there metal squares under the plastic lugs?

Those headlights seem for an Euro-spec alfetta gt and will use H1 bulbs for the low and for the high circuits. The Euro setup doesn´t use a bezel as US spec cars, so the headlight is directly attached to the grille.

That makes a lot of sense since the plastic lug seems to be permanently attached to receive some sort of screw. Also the outside lamps have a light socket made for a small bulb, at the bottom of the lamp. These low wattage bulbs were used as night-time city driving lights in some European countries.
Thanks for the insight, James

James, those are the parking lights for Euro contries. In US-spec cars, I think the first position would light the front turning lights. Those small bulbs are 5w, they light up the headlight, but won´t give enough lightening.
