1. SS180 box is different than a Rally 180
2. Yeah Nah... glove box is the same as a Rally 180
and I have read learned opinions from all the best sources.... and it still seems there is a lack of consensus
Vespa Technica shows a 66/67 SS180 with the smaller Rally 180 glovebox
Sarti's "All the models" also shows the smaller Rally 180 glove box.
But... you can always find pics of an SS180 with a larger (kinda looks like mk2 GS160 box) glovebox. It seems (and this could be a case of confirmation bias) that most of the larger SS180 gloveboxes I find are on earlier circa 64/65 models.
Was there a larger transitional glovebox on the SS180, before they started using the more common and smaller version? Were GS160 boxes compatible and just resourced by Piaggio until the stock ran out?
I would love to put this mystery to rest once and for all. Who has thaoughts? Make your argument. Show your work. etc.
Pinched from interwebs - a SS180 with larger gb next to a Rally with the smaller gb.
Larger gb on an early SS180? Shadows?
