Thank you for all the efforts and time spent putting this together. Thank you for sharing it with all of us.
What can we do to help out with keeping it updated? Are you going to put it on any other sites? This could be a great tool to bring more alfa owners to our BB.
Thanks again.

After fooling around with British and a bit of German for many years, there is an Alfa coming my way.... Hasn't run in 20 years or more, a conglomeration of '67 and '69 (?) parts, and me with no experience working with Alfas at all, let alone roundtails (so it's not boat tail ever?), only wanting one. Probably a nightmare, a huge mistake getting rid of the familiar and taking the leap..... But found this thread and it is AWESOME! An overused word, I know - but it fits here!

I'll know more when I get the whole lot home and go through everything. I have a lot to learn and it will be a very slow process, but it's nice to have a place to start! Thanks!

Please help to keep the register up dated. Thanks.
Wille- what about those of us with 1600 Duettos? (Sorry- couldn't resist!) Seriously, great job, Harold! Thanks a lot!

Harold,

Thanks, I am working on a 67. This thread has been the back bone of my project. I should be finished in a few months. Without you it would be much longer.

Thanks again,

Charles

does anyone recommend a restoration shop for a 1750 boat-tail spider that needs an overhaul in the NYC/Long Island area?
also what do you folks think a decent budget should be?
i just bought one on-line and just got it delivered. not surprisingly, the online pictures look better than the reality. no real rust damage but could use a new interior and new paint job. its runs nicely but needs TLC.
i was thinking about just doing a complete overhaul.
i am looking for a shop that specializes in these cars - i don't want a learning curve or a shop that rips it apart and never gets it back together.
hoping to have it done and ready for next spring.
thanks in advance for any help
