Alfaholics is using the term shallow arch for the late chassis 68-77. See

and have a look at their rear fender offerings discriptions.

I assume they are measuring from the fender line or beltline down to the wheel arch. So Shallow would be a short distance (as in late chassis) and deep would be a greater distance as in the early chassis.

Classic Alfa uses one of the other terms mentioned in this thread. High and low.
