For those who might doubt this is RX3, here is the page from the RX3 sports kit catalogue (from 1972/73):

The roof console I found is same as the top picture. There is lots of this weird "factory" stuff around (which I have collected up :wink: ), but you need to know what you are looking for (and looking at sometimes!).

Heya all!!

A friend had one in a 10a rx3 coupe that was imported from Papua New Guinea.
It was different to that though. It had 2 map lights and something else up there.
It was made for the RX3 coz it fit perfectly and the guy he bought it off was the original owner from new (well his old man anyways). It had no mods at all, completely stock....
Ill see if i can find pics....

BTW, it also had moulded speaker grilles on the rear deck speakers and an 8track from factory 8)
