1973 Firenza or 1974-75 Magnum coupé ?

My guess is 74 Magnum 1800 as no grille badge for 2300 - has all the stuff I'd expect for Magnum - Rostyles, full grille black, vinyl roof, coachlines - and looks like headrests

Thank you dsl. Did the 2nd year Firenza had the same grille ?

It's the same grille pressing - the difference is whether it has black paint and how much. I think the sequence was
1] Original 71 Firenza 2000 SL - https://www.flickr.com/photos/ryanbus/7773272192/ without black,
2] March 72 Firenza 2300 SL - http://www.motorstown.com/images/vauxhall-firenza-2300-05.jpg with black backwash,
3] Sept 73 onwards Magnum 1800 and 2300 full black as main.

Plus there were various lesser Firenza and Viva coupes with small engines and ordinary Viva rectangiular headlight grilles.

World Car Catalogue editions say Swiss assembly was:
1967 - Victor
1969 - Victor
1971 - Viva, Victor
I don't have 72/73/74 volumes, and no mention for CH in 75 and later editions.

So 74+ Magnum may be a year or two too late?? But ID as made-for-CH as a marker in case new info arrives in future.
