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.

Dug out these two pics from Sept 2018 of VIN plates on a white 1750 Berlina I saw (John Smith took me there, don't recall the owner's name) in Somerset West.

Three more. First two are John Smith's Giulia Super. Second pic is upside down but numbers are legible this way. Third is Greig Smith (and Dad's) Giulietta TI. Same trip, Sept 2018.

South African Vehicle Registrations

Dear South African Alfisti,

I'm asking again for your help regarding SA Alfas: is there a resource where one can see how many cars of a certain make were registered new in South Africa in the 70s and 80s?

My own website, dedicated to the love of cars: www.roadster-life.com

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

Ciao

Some 750's
Some 101's
Some 105's
Some others
