I was told that one or two years it was on the right hand side (passenger), which made the cable shorter. Then it was moved to the driver side, which made the cable go diagonally across the car.
In my opinion, I do not need a navigator/co-pilot in my GTV unless I am on a rallye ... Hence I consider the driver (left hand size) to be more customer-friendly. Of course, I am ingoring the opinion of alfistas in right-hand drive countries.
Well, here's one that makes no sense from LHD or RHD perspectives. My 69 USA gtv 1750 series 1 has the lever for allowing the backs of the front seats to be folded forward located on the inner sides of the seat backs (furthest from the doors).

I entered my 1974 GTV, I was there for both Saturday and Sunday. We had a Alfa only run group, with around 8 cars.
A few 4c's a Guila, and 4 other GTV's, my car was the...
I have too-fast flashing upon indicating both a left and a right turn. I have cleaned/replaced all bulbs and terminals, so the culprit for this too-fast flashing should be narrowed-down to the flasher unit itself. I have been advised that there are modern electronic units that...
