Hi Veloce 1600, shame you're not over here as there is a GTV with Roll Cage and Transmission for sale at the moment on Ebay for $102.50 titled Alfa Romeo GTV Project - 1 day to go and only 2 bids.
The 'My White Bella' Alfa is only in the Infancy Stages, with the Engine and Transaxle in the UK, waiting to hear back to arrange the Shipping details.
As far as the Rules are for her, as it's a New Build, I need to Comply with the New VicRoads Registration requirements, thus having to have the Engine Bored Out, Re-Sleaved with 1mm Thinner Liners, New Custom Pistons, Rings, Gaskets, etc......... when the Engine arrives.
Tried to get one with All the Rear End complete, but they no longer had the other components, so will need to search those out.
But should be quite quick when all is done for a Road Registered car, similar Power Output to My Red Sports Sedan, and not much heavier as I'll be Lightening her as much as possible without upsetting the Engineer and the VicRoads Registration Compliance with Carbon Fibre GTAm Guards, Doors, Bonnet, Boot, Dash, Interior Panels, Airbox, etc, etc,...... you get the idea.
Been thinking about it and may need to Vent some areas of the car to Reduce the Heat in the Engine Bay / Front Guard areas.
Even though I intend to use my Jordan F1 Undertray and Rear Diffuser at the back end to Draw out the air, I may need to Design a Nice Front Spoiler to Balance the car out, will just have to see what I can come up with.
But at the moment, getting the Drive Line over from the UK to Australia is my First Prioroty, as it takes up to a Two Months by Sea - wouldn't even contemplate what it Costs by Air.
In the mean time, Live the Dream.
