    I found more and more generator warning lights in late european E-serie Dinos (H2 1973). I though this was a feature for late US-models only but this seems to be not the case. Can anybody confirm more late european or RHD models with original generator warning lights?

    a generator warning light in the AMP-meter, I´ve never seen this before.
    Can you take a picture please and post it here.
    What`s your chassis no., how late in 1973 was your Dino produced?
    Regards Matthias

    thanks Graham, makes sence to me. It seems, that mid 1973 this feature was implemented for all Ferrari Dinos, not only the US-models.

    Matthias, attached is my late 1973 RHD #7472. looks like the orientation and dash style changed. 28th car before yours Graham, perhaps they were in the factory line at the same time.

    that looks perfectly original for a RHD-model, the dashboard isn`t 100% mirror-inverted...
    thanks for posting
    regards Matthias

    Does anybody have a lower chassis number with the generator warning light fitted original?
    Maybe even lower than #07000....

    Hello Matthias,

    True, no doubt – but only for the Euro- or early Dinos.
    In US spec. cars, they are as follows:

    Left: Brake failure warning light (red)
    Center: Parking lights on (green)
    Right: Handbrake on (red)

    The blue high beam light is located at the bottom center of the speedometer dial, between the two turn signal arrows.

    One toggle switch operates both fan motors in US Dinos. The second toggle switch is used for the emergency flashers.

    Regards,
    Lars
