  • Many british cars (Rover, Aston-Martin DB5, Lotus Elan, Sunbeam Alpine/Tiger)
  • Alfa 2600
  • Volvo P1800
  • Lamborghini 350,400,3500GT, Espada, Islero, Jarama, Miura

Conversion Kits

The Girling MkIIb is fairly old technology, and will require periodic rebuilding. Due to the wide number of applications of this booster, conversion kits to Lockheed or PBR units are available. One of these kits might be applicable to the FIAT. If anyone has tried this, please let me know so I can post more information.
