I think you may have a series 1 or 10a type front bumper on there, cant quite tell from the half pics but the bends around the grille, looks like its from the earlier front end. good luck with the car, great buy!

looks tuff, sorry i was mistaken, I knew I shouldnt have said anything. looks to be series 2 with the "frog mouth" cut out section but still a very rare bumper. A good cut n polish and buff up your chrome strips all over, or re paint the black if thats your fancy and you'll have a neat car. I was suprised to see the inj 13b :tu: , not a common engine conversion in oz.. happy rotoring.

Discoloration of chrome strips is the result of power washing
where most of the black paint washed off. I personally like chrome
finish but I'll paint it black for the sake of keeping it SP conversion n all.

Hey mate, nice little survivor you've got there. :D So you're doing an SP conversion? I'm doing the same with my '77 808 coupe, got the decals and rear spoiler (repro) but the front spoilers are impossible to find.


Keith :wink:

Thanks Keith.

By SP I meant I am going to keep the bumpers/trims black.
Not going to do a full on SP conversion only because SP parts
or for that matter RX3 parts are very very tough to find and they cost
an arms and both legs. I am just happy with what I got :tu:
