Question GTV lineage

Hello GTV folks! a couple of us at work here are having a debate as to when the GTV (up to '74) body started. I've checked the internet without much conclusive information, so I'm turning to you guys. What was the first year of the GTV body? If this is somewhere on the forum already, could someone please direct me to the thread? Thanks very much.

Technically speaking I think it started with the 1750 GTV in 1969 (?). This is because the 1750 shell has modified rear seat and roof shape to increase the passenger space.

Shells before this are different, but so similar I cannot tell the difference

Otherwise you would have to go right back to the first model with the smooth (instead of stepped) front ... not even sure what model that was.


ps: Remember it's all just opinions

The following link (4th posting) explains it all and indicates the first year as 1965 for Giulia Sprint GT Veloce.

Thanks! This all started due to the ERTL 1/18 scale GTA model, which they labeled a '65. I thought the body didn't start until '67, but apparently only the "GTV" name started in '67. Boy, you really DO learn something new every day!

According to Fusi, the Giulia Sprint GT started in '63. I'm pretty sure the new 105 Bertone body style ran concurrently with the 101 Bertone Sprint for a year or two.

Erik you're absolutely right, The Guilia sprint GT was presented on the 9th of september 1963 to the press and stood short afterwards on the car exhibition of Frankfurt, Germany.
