I don' t think it's primer in my case. The chrome has weathered or oxidized (I'm guessing) to a matt finish. I'll be replacing both sides with new reproduction chrome pieces that I bought through an Italian supplier.

Just stumbled upon this thread and the site via the UK Owners club.

You might have solved the mystery of the colour of my recently aquired GT !

It has been called cream and ivory, but I might even be able to get some paint code stickers now.



It does look very white due to the bright sunshine, but I should be able to match the real colour from some of the lists.

Sig.Pesci, compliments on your very clean looking Giulia GT.

Q: Those wheels look like they are from the later GTVs as opposed to the larger hubcap style (as on my 69 GTV above)....or where those in fact availble on the European GT much earlier than in the US.

Thanks, the car was a South African car and the wheels are a bit odd. They are 15" but have the centres like a Spider and larger holes than european GT's.

It also has the original style black seats in now and looks much better inside.

Haig,

Nice GTV! But it sure looks like a '71! Did you switch out the grilles? Nice, nevertheless.

Beautiful Sprint GT Sig.Pesci! There are some great colors in this thread but I have a soft spot for white GTs.


not bad from ten feet away

Thanks 67GTV, mine too looks best from about 10 feet away too - although she is getting better by the week. It will get some more permanent fixes done when she comes off the road for the winter.

The nearest colour I've seen is the cream/ivory colour BMW paint some of the new MINI's. It looks a perfect match. It never photographs very well, always looks white.

I navigate in a 1750 GT Veloce on Historic Rallies in the UK, so also like the look of pure white cars.

Finally got around to getting mine slightly lowered (must have had the longest front springs ever fitted to a 105 car) and fitting a set of alloy wheels and modern tyres - all fully reversible, but has made a huge difference to driving enjoyment!

French Blue? I would love to know your serial number on your car. To my knowledge there were only about 4-5 French Blue GTV's imported to the US. I have seen 3 of them, including my 71 GTV. I am curious to know if your paint sticker in the trunk is a Max Meyer paint?

French Blue is close to the blue that is on California license plates if you are looking for a close reference. This is a very unusual color for GTV's. The Navy Blue is a color you don't see very often either.
The LeMans blue that everyone references was on GTV's from 72-74. That is my earliest recollection of having seen that color. It is definitely a lighter blue.
I don't have my computer so I can't get into my files on line to see if I have my GTV picture that I can post of the French Blue.
Fiat has a blue that is very close and I think it is called Royal Blue. Dutch Blue is very close but I wouldn't know the difference unless it is laying side by side.
There are a lot of blue colors that are shade differences as are other colors, some brighter than others. Until you see them side by side it is hard to know the exact differences.

Here is a pic of the French Blue 69 that I sold somewhat recently on Ebay. It still had the paint sticker inside the deck lid and the car was a one owner car that had not ever been painted... although it is a bit faded and weathered.
