Has anybody got a decent photo of the engine bay of an early 1972 1275GT please?
I am trying to figure out which servo should be fitted. I have a Lockheed unit part number 3232656C which looks 'right' but I can't seem to establish this as all photos I can find are grainy black and white (& often the servo is out of focus)
Also which ignition splashguard should it have. I think it should be black one with the domed section (as opposed to the flat version which I think was fitted to later cars)
Lastly when did they stop fitting the vinyl on the outside of the rear map pockets and upper A pillars.
Thanks
Mark

We asked a related question on the GT f/b page a few weeks ago, though we were interested in brake routing.

Hopefully this works ...................

Thanks. Simon has provided a bit of info to me but from the pics you have added there are two different types. Bronze one looks like the J plate barn find car on Hydro. The other doesn't. Mine is a dry car
Did they differ from factory? Cheers

Early 12” wheel car that isn’t it. Looks pretty straight but if it’s been parked on that very damp floor for 22years it might be fairly ripe underneath. Bracken colour so should have the Sorrel interior, no interior pictures though. I had one very similar.

You would get away with a conversion to 10" RoStyles with that.

And so my GT has gone in for some rust repairing. Hopefully wont be too long and then ill have it back again.

Potentially thinking of building a spare S motor i have for it, which will have a little more power for the little GT.

That looks like my old J plate one - red, white stripes and black roof.
