Do you have documentation from Marcos? (not sure the alfa documentation site is back up yet) but he will tell you sell date / where and original color and interior--- What is the model and s/n listed on the plates and firewall?

The service was suspended in spring, more in this tread: Centro Documentation Services??
There is progress. I send a request via the link I posted in post #34, but I haven't heard back yet, so maybe it's not up and running yet. Can't hurt to try though.
Anyway good luck with the restoration, I'll be following this tread for sure.

Tim

Snap. I've just started a '76 2000 GTV in a similar state.
The big question: are you going all original or modified?

What Rust?

Its not very clear from the pictures of the body but this gtv is rusty! who would guess. underneath the red paint there is quite a bit of filler then rust and possibly somewhere underneath all that, theres some metal.

Starting from the front: the bottom of the nose is pretty much gone. the rad support and sway bar mounts are rusted away and have been repaired with a few different techniques, most notably brazing, arc welding, mig welding, and filler.

Inner Fender

Im most worried about the inner fender. Its rusted badly under where the battery sits. This part is going to be hard to re-create and is not available. If anyone knows where i can find a repair panel It would be greatly appreciated!!!

Rust Repair

There was no way to fix this with the nose on, so it had to come off. next was the rad support and shroud.
