1961 Sprint Veloce seat and side panels pattern.

Hello Sprinters!
I just received pictures of the finished upholstery I ordered in Italy for my 1961 Sprint Veloce. This company exists since 1964. Their work is excellent and the materials are original or very close to the original. Since I'm located in Greece, sometimes communication was difficult because of the language barriers, google translate italian/english helping.
I post today the result of their work and need feedback about the accuracy of the seat design and pattern. They claim that this pattern was copied from an original seat they restored a while ago. I don't want to influence anyone by the first picture a friend photoshopped, so your comments and photos will be welcomed.
On the 2nd picture the angle of the side panel vinyl was corrected (last photo) according to the original even though the bottom chrome is not correct.
Thanks,
Athanasios

To me the marked out part of the seat bottom in the pic below definately seems being way off and too deep in.
Compare to some original pics.....unfortunately don´t have any pic of the bottom seat in the third pic......

Don´t know wheather there could be any difference between Giulietta and Giulia Sprint seat cover patterns (unless pleated), but here is another comparison pic of a 100% original 1600 Sprint and Kuni´s recovered ´61 Giulietta Sprint seats.

Thank you Denis, I was afraid of that.
I'll try to persuade them to do the repair.

101 Sprint trim

Hi Athanasios

I'm afraid your trimmer / supplier has got it very wrong.

There are several mistakes with the door panels and the seat trim is definitely incorrect.

Here are pictures of original trim in two different '59 Sprints, the only difference between these and your '61 is the style of the cloth - in '59 is was still the stripy 750 one and by '61 is was the speckled Sal-e-Pepe or Salt & Pepper cloth.

Whatever car your supplier used was definitely not as it left the Factory....

Hear is your door panel vs an original one from a friend's '59 (cloth is 750 stripy type)

Ciao
Greig

101 seats

These are all original seats from various Interim & 101 cars - again the early ones used the 750 stripy cloth while the later ones used the Sal-e-Pepe / Salt & Pepper speckled cloth.

The ratio of vinyl to cloth didn't change
  • 1st picture is a '61 Sprint
  • 2nd & 3rd pics are a barn find '59
  • Last one is a low mileage ultra-original '58 Veloce - still with the Factory delivery plastic on the passenger door.

Ciao

101 Seats

Same thing, but in red for a variation on a theme from a very original '59 - early stripy cloth again

Thank you Greg,
I'll send the link of your comment to the supplier/restorer, to try to fix all these errors.
Do you know where I can get this foil material for the panels?

The door cards on my 59 750 Sprint don't have the silver embossed panels - have i got an 'austerity' model or are they wrong (i would quite like some door pockets) - they do match the rear panels however? I am sure the brick is non standard.

Nope there were no 'austerity' models, yours is just an austerity re-trim in the '70's or '80's before these cars were worth anything.

The good news is that during '58 & '59 Alfa experimented with vinyl/vinyl combinations & the red cars could have had black & red vinyl/vinyl or red vinyl with stripy cloth - so you get to decide if you like the rosso a nero or prefer the version in my post #54 above.

Here is an original red/black vinyl/vinyl in Laurence Anderson's '58 Series I 750 Sprint Veloce Confortevole, the door panel & seat patterns are different to your Series II car, but the theme is the same.

The brick was standard equipment for ageing Sprint Veloce park brake mechanisms when they were in serious need of adjustment.....

Dennis,

Your two photos of the often-missing weather strip from atop 101 Spider doors, revealed one more missing item from mine.

Could you post some additional photos taken from different angles of that particular piece and describe both rubber and what looks to be the SS metal piece?

Thanks

Ray
