Well worth watching, even if you don't speak French.  The dismantling and bodywork sequences are most interesting--especially some of the small patch panels they used--presumably from W & N.  And at the very end, the track driving scenes are priceless--it's being flung around that track like it was 1975.

 

I'll bet there are folks on the FAQ that would love to have those accessory side grilles with the built-in Cibie driving lights.   And...for the nice job they did on this Turbo restoration, someone forgot to slop some black paint on the hood hinges behind the grilles.

I wonder, Mike, if the side grilles could be “standard”, albeit recognizably aftermarket, quad-headlight grilles. Although these grilles were designed for four 5 3/4” headlights, the very “outboard” mounting of the 7” headlights and 6” (?) auxiliary lights on the turbo suggest — at least to me — that they’ve mounted the lights in-front-of the built-in plastic bezels. Just a thought, since I’ve never seen a dual-headlight-plus-dual-auxiliary-light plastic grille.... 🤔


I must admit that the thought of a grill designed for two 7” headlights and two auxiliary lights sounds pretty great to me!

 

Best regards,

 

Steve
