Fresh compilation with added info from the alfabb members

Hello members,

I thought it was time to make a new compilation of the information that we have gathered so far (15-10-2011). Thank you for all the members that contributed to this thread/database.

Definition:
But first an addition to definition of what a GTAm is.
As already said the GTAm was an Alfa Romeo 1750 GTV USA (105.51) that had Spica fuelinjection. It had two brake boosters and standing pedals. These cars were converted by Autodelta to GTAm specification. The homologation papers specify what changes could be made. Autodelta had a complete list of options to convert the car into a GTAm.
Along with the type 1750 GTV USA (105.51) some type 1750 GTV EU (105.44) have also been converted (standing and hanging pedals). The same goes for some type 2000 GTV’s (105.21) with hanging pedals.
Besides that, UlrichGTA told me that in Germany some GT 1300 Juniors (105.30) have been converted to GTAm because the GT 1300 Junior was lighter.
Difficulty with the GTAm is, that it never had a unique type- and chassisnumber. This is unlike the type GTA (105.32 LHD and 105.34 RHD) and type GTA 1300 Junior (105.59).

Variants:
Then there are variants within the different types:
- new cars from the production line converted to GTAm spec's by Autodelta as Autodelta works cars
- new cars from the production line converted to GTAm spec's by Autodelta as Autodelta customer cars
- existing cars converted to GTAm spec's by Autodelta as Autodelta customer cars
- new or existing cars converted to GTAm spec's by other tuners/teams with a combination of Autodelta, Angelini, Balduzzi and other parts like the Balduzzi cars (Tony Adriaensens mentions this in his book)
- new or existing (replacement) bodyshells with or without a chassisnumber that were equipped with Autodelta, Angelini, Balduzzi and other parts (for example from wrecked cars)
- other variants on this theme in various stages of tune

There is a list with Autodelta options for your GTAm called "GTAm modifications & options for GTAm".

And what about other tuners such as Angelini with it's 2000cc 16 valve cylinderhead with Weber carburettors?
Further specifications can be found in the homologation papers.

A lot of GTAm's will have been updated during and after their racing life, engines and gearboxes were swapped, they have been restored, etc ..... And some of these cars had great palmares while others were less fortunate.

Copies:
Besides that, there are a lot of copies with various stages of tune with less or more original GTAm parts. Have a look around on alfabb and you will see a lot of GTV's being changed into GTAm copies. Some of them are very nice and well built.

Chassisnumbers:
Here is a list with with chassisnumbers and the sources of the information we have collected sofar.
