Closeup of headlight wiper system.

The small washer jet can be seen in the upper right side of the grill.

Ok, great. I've got one of those in all the boxes that came with the car! :-)
You will need the wiring loom to go with it, hopefully you have that too.

The change point for 12" wheels, 8.4" discs and the tandem master cylinder is commission number S20D 19416A. The servo, 7.5" discs, 10" wheels were deleted at S20D 19415A. The parts book AKM 0031 suggests this was for the 1974 model year, but I think it was for the 1975 model year.

By the way, you can see the split braking, with tandem master cylinder on the picture that Astro posted. The other engine bay has single line brakes which would normally have a servo.

Jens, thanks for posting the headlamp washer details.

It was April 1974 = all the 1974 GT,s in Sweden have 12" wheels, and so do W&P,s 1974 brochure, and since this is not a BL brochure, it can be trusted ;)

HI Guys

I hope there is still activity in this thread :D

Im trying to identify the originality of "my Swedish 1275 gt" I bought it as you can see on the pictures in a very sorry state.

first registered in Sweden 1973-09-26. ( I guess you can call that a 1974)

- The Chassis number and the commission number seems to be correct

- but the body number seems wrong (comments on that please) ? what I can find of info is that it should be D20D Not D20S
what does yours have @drkassler ?

-(and I found this with D20S for sale online) https://www.rwclassicminis.co.uk/vehicl ... ification/

- it has the "Original switch & panel for headlight wash & wipe system" also seen earlier in this thread and the motor + drive

´- it has a brake booster

- it has the correct tripple gauge with correct red line at the rev counter

- it has the correct drip rail (to my understanding)

- it has boot board supports spotwelded in.

-it doesnt have a hole in the backseat support

what do you think ? :-)
