    Question

    Possibly a C111 grille with the chrome guts removed?
    Regards,

    It looks like a modified/customised grille to me. I don't think it's C10 though. It looks almost like a 200B... Maybe it's from a SWB C110.

    Actually yeah, going through my pictures it looks like just the home-market 2000GT "belt-buckle" (as Jim christened it!) painted over and without the middle bits.

    Thumbs up

    Yair, that's the one I was thinking of Alfa, I thought they called that model the C111, domestic only? Hey, Kent, there is a 240K coupe in the Riversone wreckers with one of those grills.....If you can ever catch the owner with the place open! The rest of the car appears to be an Australian delivered 240K though.

    Hi Jim - I was always under the impression the 2000GT got the belt-buckle grille, and the 2000GT-X got the same grille as the 240K - whether they were C110's or C111's.

    I also thought that C111 simply meant the car was post-facelift, but after seeing that the difference between C210 and C211 was supposedly fuel injection, I wonder if maybe it's the same case with the C110/C111? That would explain why none of our Aussie C110's are C111's. But I thought one of the perks of the GTX-E was fuel injection over the other models... so perhaps not.

    What do you think? I'm just theorising here...

    Hmm...I think what you theorise may be so. The first reference to a C111 in the Skyline range is from March of 1976, a BC111T, a 2515mm wheelbase 1600cc 4 cylinder sedan. Note no "E" on the end so I'm guessing no injection. The first 6 cylinder is the ..big breath now... KGC111JTFE, running an L20E donk. This is the first appearance of the "Belt Buckle" grille also. Released June of 1976. Next model release would appear to be the 210 range in August of 1977.
    If you look at the Yahoo pics you can see where the horizontal bar would fit into the mouldings for the inner headlights. Geeez, talk about hijackin' a thread

    Very interesting. So that's the first mention of C111? Were there previous modeles mentioned, C110, that were "facelifted"? If so, that would prove that the difference between GC110 and GC111 was the E.

    So the "belt-buckle" only came on GC111? That's interesting too...

    I don't think going off topic is a bad thing, as the original question has been answered and this saves making a whole new topic

    Bah. It doesn't make sense... need a big whiteboard and a committee to work this out. I've sent an email to someone who might know

    Makes sense now.

    The belt-buckle is a C111 grille.
    The main difference between C110 and C111 is NAPS system.
    The above picture says it is a C110 type. Not a C110 itself... As in, the C111 is a type of C110.

    Make sense? Thank Ackn my Japanese C110/C210 fanatic!!
