Parts substitution

Post by KLHarper » Tue Apr 14, 2009 4:35 pm

Maserati Indy ignition switch Same as Fiat 124
Lambo Muira Tail lights same as early 850 spider

I think this is a great idea, particularly for the exotic car crowd

Lamborghini Muira headlight buckets can be used on early glass covered Fiat 850 spiders. Also, the toggle switches located beside the cabin door on mid 1980s-McDonnald Douglas MD-80s are the same as the heater, hazard, etc. on/off switches from Fiat X 1/9s.

Allen:

VDO oil pressure gauge fits the clock hole and your fancy radio likely has one already.

Italians have their own sense of time. Hence the sporadic operation of their clocks.
