Hi everyone,

My RHD 1973 2000GTV came with what appear to be 'Autopal' headlamps. Shame it didn't have the original Carrellos and I understand that they're hard to track down. I ordered some reproductions from ClassicAlfa and they're ok, but if I can't source originals then I'd rather something better than a replacement.

Upon doing some research, I see that Hella have some replacement headlamps but I've no idea where to source the correct ones for a RHD car.

Appreciate any info!

These look and work beautifully on my US '73. Now I'm scratching my head trying wondering if these standard round lights are RHD/LHD specific?

Thanks for that. If I find them here in Australia, then they will certainly be RHD. How did you attached the inner lights?

Do you know the part numbers? And do you want NOS?

Unfortunately I don't know the part numbers. Doesn't have to be NOS either.

The only change I had to make if I recall was to alter the buckets where the locating tabs sat. Im sorry but I have totally forgotten what combo of US and Euro headlight parts I ended up using…

All good mate. I think it's slightly different for you guys as your inner headlights are fog lights, whereas ours are high beams.
