I purchased this 1750 earlier this year in Rhode Island from a member on alfaBB. Im started This thread with intention of sharing my progress as well as hopefully getting advise along the way. I plan to turn this rusty shell into solid and quick little car.

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?
Welcome to the bb!! This is the place to research, learn and ask questions. So many great and knowledgeable people here. I've learned a ton.
So good luck with the project. Everyone here will ask for plenty of pictures. Keep us informed.
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.
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.
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!!!
