    James,
    Go to your nearest Volvo wrecker, they will have plenty of V6 LH alloy covers. Don't forget the hold down screws.

    Thats a very good 504 selection, the coupes must be rear beasts by now.
    When were they released?

    The coupé and cabriolet were released at the Geneva Motor show of March 1969, 6 months after the 504 sedan was shown/released. Equipped with the 1.8 litre injected engine from the sedan, and 4-speed manual gearbox, they were heavier, wider, shorter and faster. They were also roooly expensive, at nearly twice the price of the sedan. They got the 2-litre upgrade same time as the rest of the range.

    The bodies were made by Pininfarina at the Turin factory, and mated to the running gear at Sochaux. The V6 carby came out in October 1974, 6 months before it appeared in the 604.

    Production finished in 1983, by which time the top spec had the 5-speed, the injection V6, and a price tag 4 times the original. About 27 000 coupés were made, in LHD only. All RHD were converted, mostly in the UK.

    The number of cabriolets produced was much less than coupes .They were never sold in the us ,unlike the Fiat spyder and Alfa spyder which came from the same Pinninfarina production line

    Whilst there was an approved conversion in the UK, some were converted in Australia years, if not decades, after they were first sold in Europe. That was why I wrote "mostly".
