Here is a 1970 1750 GTV that was built in South Africa. It has the small tail lights and late style bumpers.

When was that photo taken? It still has the old Johannesburg registration plates which changed at the end of the 1970s I think.

It looks like it has the same hubcaps as I my South african built Giulia. See post 114 above.

re hubcaps.
Its 1750, in Europe, with the large plastic ring on the hub. First series 105, in Europe, had the small plastic ring. Junior did only have a pressed hub without the plastic ring.
From the 2000 was introduced, 1970, in Europe, we got the Sombrero hubs.
The one in post 114, isn't it a Junior, it has only one front light, and it seems as it is missing the plastic, ring on the hubs. All based on European spec.

My car, the one in post 114, is a South African built Giulia 1300 Super.

To me, the hubcaps look slightly different from the ones on the Spider Junior. The hubcaps on my car don't look as rounded, or convex, as the hubcaps on the Spider Junior. It may just be an optical iilusion.

Photo was taken yesterday in a Chicago suburb. The owner put the old registration plates back on.

GTV6 3.0 was built in SA in 84 and 85 from what I understand the dashboard on an 84 model differed from that on an 85 model and that was 1 way of telling them apart.

[quote=toydc;902010]The South African GTV6 3.0

by Toy de Carvalho

......

Toy de Carvalho,
Jhb , South Africa,


Excellent summary ... maybe I could add something about real reasons why ARSA was closed down (my dad was one of the last men standing and he actually negotiated the sale of the Rosslyn factory ... at one stage Bugatti was considering re-birth from that plant) but I don't think it serves any purpose.

I was just trying to revive my memories about Sarel Van de Merwe Ford Cortina XR6 Intercepter , I have a vague memory about a V8 engine upgrade to keep up with Alfas and BMWs when I stumbled in one of those Group One epic races, I didn't watch the end yet, I hope Nicolo' won that duel, but doesn't really matter.
I wanted to share that link and then download the video so I can watch it on proper TV at the correct moment and with the right atmosphere.

... beautiful days those Alfa Boys days


Maurizio

I couldn't resist and I watched it ... GTV6 2.5 ... epic battle ... I don't want to spoil the suspense: those were the greatest days of racing ever!

Hi Fomtom,

We're looking to rebuild the old 84/85 championship winning GTV6 3.0l - do you have any more pics of:
1) 1984 GTV6 3.0l championship winning red car 6 (Abel D'Oliviera car)
2) 1985 GTV6 3.0l cars 1 & 6

We're wanting to get the livery as close to original as possible - any help would be hugely appreciated!

Cheers
