Sprint register updated


I just updated the register

Sprint Coupe now in Oxford in the UK.

AR 161340 - Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint
manufactured on the 8th November 1961
sold on the 2nd February 1962 in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
The body colour is “azzurro Iseo”.
It is now red, but I can find some blue bits if I hunt around.

I have had the Alfa now 13 years, its just having an engine rebuild.
Let me know if you have some surplus con rods !!

A suggestion .. As little space is needed in the register spreadsheet for the: Location first sold (and does that really matter for anyone ??) .. how about a column for the Pinin Farina or Bertone numbers found on the chassis ?

These numbers might help (or not) explain some of the time delays in the building and delivery sequence.
At the very least it will add another twist for future Alfa-storians and serve to complicate their conundrum.

Martyn, I have 160835 and a friend has 160837, both Gardenia white, both October '61 builds and both consigned to Achberg Robinson the Concessionaire in Port Elizabeth, coincidentally where I now reside.

Our cars were probably shipped out on the same boat, along with my friend's brother's Spider which is also a late October '61.

Small world and nice to see another survivor - did you sort out the motor ?? 105 series con rods are basically identical to 101 rods

Wow, interesting to find the cars made before and after.

The Engine has turned into an interesting project, the car was "Prepared by Emmot Barwell" according to the enamel badge on the glove box.
So once in pieces it has clearly had a lot of work, including a 1400 kits fitted in the past.

So the rebuild is being completed in sympathy with its original plan, the most up to date version of a 1400 kit, with Sprell 77mm race piston, custom rods and liners.
The head is being worked on at the moment.

Taking longer than expected, but should be worth it
