Sold on July 16, 1964

Giuliav,

Enjoyed reading about the build and sell dates of your 64 Giulia Spider. Looks like our cars were sold on the same day:

"Dear Mister Smith,

With reference to your request we are informing you as follows.

According to our documentation files, the chassis number AR 379356 originally corresponds to an Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider (101.23), engine series AR 00112, manufactured on the 15th April 1964 and sold on the 16th July 1964 to Alfa Romeo Inc., Newark USA.

The body colour is white, with black interiors.

Yours, Sincerely,

Marco Fazio"

As it turns out, four members of the Oklahoma chapter of AROC, located here in Tulsa, have '64 Giulia Spiders; "It's a small "Alfa" world; after all".

Ciao,

Ray

Oklahoma SNO Alfa Chapter Director

That is great, they probably shared a container. When the restoration is complete, we will have to line them up side by side at one of the events.

Note the date on your FRB11 filter / regulator confirms this information!

Your 64 should have ALFA ROMEO and 1600 for the trunk lid. Script is available as is the 1600. I have seen lately some VELOCE script that has been unavailable for decades recently show up on sites in Italy. What it looks like compared to the original, I have no idea.

Thanks for that Velocedoc. I did look at 3 other 1964 veloces very close to my chassis number and build date and they all indeed have the "ALFA ROMEO" badge along with veloce 1600 badge. I looked at some of the reproduction badges out there. They do look ok but up close I thought they are a little off. I will hold out to have my original badges redone and see what the outcome is at that point. It really seems like New reproduction parts are coming out all the time for these cars. Restorations must be on the uptick! ��

Rob,
I have your trunk floor, it arrived yesterday, I need the 3 digit number from your trunk lid, it is on the side of the latch bracket. We put 105 + those numbers and we should have your PF number. Before you weld the trunk in I recommend washing the Zinc off with Muratic Acid, rinse it with hot water and dry with air and a heat gun. Much safer to weld around without the Zinc. Alot of British Sheet Metal Parts are stamped in Zinctech, bare Sheet Metal must surface rust instantly over there!
