According to Fusi's book, chassis number AR1695216 belongs to a 105.92 Giulia Spider 1300 Junior G.d. (RHD). Fusi stops listing chassis numbers for this model in 1969 at 1695179. So, this car is either a late '69 or early 1970 car (for which Fusi lists no numbers at all).
The cars of that period had a badge for the model number and the chassis number stamped into the firewall. Often these numbers are combined for reference purposes. In this case, it would be 10592.1695216. However, AR1695216 is indeed the correct chassis number. Typically, there's an asterisk between the AR and the number, so what you're going to see probably looks like AR*1695216.
As for writing Elvira, you should be aware that Italy is on vacation during the month of August and many establishments (including the Alfa museum) are usually closed during this month. So, you may have to be patient before getting a response.
