Radio blanking plate repro in progress

Found good original.Black base with pins is to weak,i will make steel base with threaded pins because the holes on dashboards are usually bigger...

Looks great...... No one is making re-productions yet and yours will sell quick. This would be correct for series 2 Giulietta sprint
and Giulia SS as well I believe.
All the best..

Why is this in the 1900-2000-2600 area? To my knowledge, there are two delete plates for the 102, and perhaps 1 for the 2600. The one we'd really like to see reproduced is the 2000 "winningest car" plate.

Or - do you do really good restorations on the latter?

I wouldn't normally send valuable parts overseas, but Franjo seems to be gaining a solid reputation. That could keep you busy if you want to take advantage of it.

Past Alfas...
59 102 Touring (first Alfa $500 running)
65 Sprint GT (2nd Alfa, $500 daily driver)
102 Sprint (never did anything with it, but wish I had)
74 Berlina (first new car - now certainly rusted into oblivion)
61 Giulietta Spider G-Prod Race Car (where is it now?)
84 Spider Veloce (rarely drove it, so sold it)
86 Quadrifoglio (Dull car - no more 115s for me)
1971 Montreal "The Full Monty". Fair winds and following seas

Current Alfas
59 102 Touring Roadster - restoration complete, enough Alfa for any rational man. Or irrational, for that matter
Oops. Add to the "present" list, 10204 01488, 2000 Touring Roadster project

And past...
Two 1946 Stampe SV4C (c/n 294 "Rocinante" - wife's favorite airplane. RIP), and c/n 235 "La Bon Temps Femme" (gone to a new home, but never forgotten)
Zlin 50LA (+9 -6 gees, titanium spar, 1200 lbs, 260HP rumored to now be in Brazil)
1946 Luscombe 8A
Starduster Too (recently spotted at the Nevada City, CA airport - over 20 years and an entire continent separating it from our stewardship in Binghamton, NY)
1955 Cessna 170B (wife taught me to fly tailwheel in this)

And present...
64 Mooney M20E ("Rambo". My faithful steed for over 40 years) Over 55 years old, and just returned from a trip to Argentina in him
Newest in the fleet
1967 Piper Super Cub on Wipline amphibious floats (a true "all terrain vehicle")
2010 Triumph Thunderbird


You can snap roll an Alfa only one time...

You're thinking Spider only. These radio delete plates were used on 102 and 106 Sprints (see this thread).

Yes, the Giulietta 750/101 catalogue shows it with a 102 parts number. I guess we can assume Giulietta Sprint and Sprint Veloce after about 1957 used the same plate.

Earlier cars seem to have used the plate shown as catalog page items #16 to #19 (with parts numbers 1493.31.017 for the complete part and 1493.31.018/xx for trim components), but Pub. 608 from 1957 (see page below) shows the older plate as item #17 with parts number 1493.31.001 (and does not list trim components on the plate) -- which means very early Giulietta Sprint plates may have been different yet again.
