Greetings,

Have received my Heritage certificate today, and there is an option called : Double vertical dip Duplo Headlamps. Googled it, nothing related appeared.
Any pics of that option/equipment please ?

Edit : Has anyone an option list for markIV model ?

Edit : the car was ordered form a NL dealer and made to export to Israel.

Cheers

Are you sure that isn't "Depo"?

From the article posted under European
This system was first used with the tungsten incandescent Bilux/Duplo R2 bulb of 1954, and later with the halogen H4 bulb of 1971.

thanks, I made a search based on your comment, and yes it looks like a special bulb for headlamps. I found few under the Philips brand.
I wonder if this is not to get white light (car was ordered by a NL dealer), as eastern countries ran white light, and western yellow at at that time.
Do not know about Israël (as the car was exported to Israël after being delivered to Netherlands).

Still would like to get the exact details about this option.

Found it. And yes this is all relative to the bulbs, Duplo are for the EU market.
What a name for just that.

All the best to you all.

Cheers
