I must be in an argumentative mood this afternoon!

Not sure that is the case. My 105.02 Sprint GT was built fairly late in the run (it is #616147) and has no redline marked on the tach. My guess is that all 105.02's were delivered that way.

Agree that European cars came with metric gauges.

I'm skeptical that US-delivery cars arrived at the dock with radios. I would believe that US dealers were more aggressive about adding (and and charging for) radios.

By "the hood latch was a nonspring mechanical" do you mean the hood latch, or the hood prop? Early Sprints had a different prop than the later cars, but that wasn't a Europe - US thing.

The one-piece bumpers found on 105.02's are made from chrome plated mild steel. Alfa switched to stainless steel bumpers with the 105.36 series. My guess is that stainless doesn't draw as deeply as mild steel, necessitating multiple pieces.
