This looks remarkably like the unknown "U-3" car on p. 540 of Luc Colemont's "Freccia d'Oro" book (see picture in the parts for sale thread).

916.578 Freccia d'Oro Headlamps

My sincere thanks to John de Boer for his kind efforts in starting this thread.
My admiration to Luc for his Opus and to Ruedi for the identification of the
U-3 possibility.

I am adding the headlamps...lenses...nacelles to those for sale from the 916.578 Freccia d'Oro components.

I will post photos in the appropriate classified section shortly.

Cordiali Saluti,

Robert

I will entertain sincere offers for these significant Carrozzeria Alfa Romeo Alloy panels. I will accept PayPal only.

Kindly contact me on this thread, PM, or email rspiltch at g mail dot com.

Last week in Italy I saw a project Freccia.. Very strange with the headlights lower than other cars.But the strangest thing is that it is in aluminium...and had a "progetto" stampi n the engine bay. In Anselmi this chassis is aTouring and it had a Touring badge earlier..Did Touring do the prototype Freccia? if so this car exists?
I will post pictures tonight..

Freccia d'Oro with Alfa Romeo body No. 0615

No. Prog. = Numero Progressivo

If all was "normal", we'd expect this body to be on a 6C2500 Sport chassis numbered very near "916600" ... but not that specific chassis ... as it is known. It is not unusual at all for the body to be in aluminum. Most are. It is hard to say from a couple of photos but I see nothing "Touring" in it. The headlamps appear as if they may be from something else? In fact, your photos reminded me of something I thought I'd seen before ...

Searching my computerized files, I see that (three years ago) I received four photos of the same car that were taken during the 1980's in Spain. In those photos, some interesting modifications can be seen. It seems to be a car that has lived an interesting life. If the body is now sitting on a chassis that you say is listed as "Touring" by the appendix (derived in large part from Alfa Romeo build-ledger information) presented by Tito Anselmi, then I would guess that there is even more to learn about the car's interesting history.

If you share the chassis number and engine number of the car, perhaps I can do a bit more studying?

Grat thread... I enjoied all the posts and the video is wonderful. I remember being introduced to Arturo Quintana while I was in Mexico racing La Carrera and being told by someone, not by himself, that he owned Bonetto's original car. I am not sure if this happened in 1994 or in 1995; he was considering buying my 1963 Alfa Giulia Sprint because the licence plate AQ ( for Aquila province in Italy ) matched the initials of his name. I did not consider seeling my car though, nor he told me he wanted to sell his !!! I would have approached Bonetto's car with trembling legs... what a piece of history !

I would like to thank all the members who helped in finishing this work. My 50th birthday was a "partial "deadline, the 6C2500 Raduno here in Antwerp last weekend the definite one...and yes the book (containing a Register of 61 Freccia's) is there...
Hope you enjoy it...

I canŽt find any copy of this book by Ebay, Amazon, etc. Could anyone help me?. This book must be pretty good...because nobody sells its own copy....

Try contacting the author Luc Colemont directly via the e-mail address he provided web site listed above (but be aware that the link for ordering his book now leads to a porn site). The core of the book is a print-out of the register information found of his site.
