Re the orange car questions, I have pics of John Smith's Burnt Tangerine Super and the ? red 1600 GT Jr, which looked orange to me but had a red name. But you might have pics of those too from the tour.
Thank you Andrew. Yes, I also have pictures of the burnt orange Super, thank you.
I think the 1600 GT Jr is painted in Rosso Farina, which contains quite a bit of orange pigment.
In the end we’re likely to go with Dark Ochre, which is a nostalgic colour for our family on the 1750 GTV. The Alfa Documentation Centre in Italy has no records on the chassis number so we are free to choose any colour combination.
As earlier posts on this thread. I understand that Mercedes South Africa now owns and operates from the old East London Site , they have records for all cars assembled there in the 1960s
Yes Mercedes Benz South Africa owns the old Car Distributor's Assembly (CDA) Plant and they managed to save most of the old production ledgers which are now in their on site museum.
They were able to tell me that my '61 Giulietta Ti, 10109*00647 fitted with engine 00109*00784 in colour 'Vana Green' was manufactured on the 3/11/61 and sold on the 7/11/61 to McKinley's, who must have been a Dealer in the '60's
