Bagheera X 1980 + 7 CitroŽn

A friend of mine is chairman of the SM section of the Club CitroŽn Suedois, and he also has a couple of Meraks.
According to him, the backlights were made by  a company called Carello who produced lighting equipment to many different car makers, including Maserati, de Tomaso, Lamborghini, an obviously Simca Matra.

This is two places where you can buy new rear lights for your U8-project:

Also DeTomaso Pantera has them, but turned upside-down:


My next idea was Fiat 124 Spider, but they are different a little:

It's like the rear brakes...

If you go to a Renault Alpine and ask for the "Big Brakes" they will be 5 to 10 times more expensives than the same brakes from a Bagheera.

So  Roll Eyes
Why do you look for these rear lamps from an exotic Italian when they where simply coming from an easier to find Alfa  Huh

Anyway, even from them, they will be expensive, so better to stick to the originals

I also was thinking about Alfa or Fiat (cos they are cheaper) but I went through model rows and didn't found them on any car of these producers. The most simillar are those on Fiat 124 Spider, but any on Alfa.

The Alfa Junior 1600Z has the same rear lights as the U8.
But only a total of 402 cars were made, so Alfa Junior 1600Z lights must be really hard to find.

I'm gona have a search on my hands for some back lights when I get my Bagheera home. At the moment it has round Opel Manta A back lights  Embarrassed  I hate when people do that. I always thought the U8 had nice lights. I know I won't find original Bagheera Series 1 back lights for a while but I have to change those Manta ones straight away for anything that even resembles Bagheera lights.

Has anyone any suggestions of what kind of lights would do the job for a while? I also have an Opel Kadett C Coupe and I have a few spare back lights but I'm not sure about them. A bit small. Opel Ascona B maybe???

Hi Bob,

I have been looking at some truck lights that look a bit similar.

Regards,

Bob, U8 had very nice rear lights, but unfortunally it's hard to find for right money. I don't know but opel seems ok. But not the best.

Stig, Do you have any example on wich you have found yet?
