Notch's '67 GT Veloce
Thought it best to introduce myself in the GT forum after introducing myself in the new member forum. (so far, you guys have made me feel very welcome so cheers for that!!):thumbs:
So the story goes like this.....
I have a client who we do maintenance and repair work for fairly regularly and last week he asked if I knew of anyone who might be interested in an old Alfa Romeo. I enquired as to how old and what model. He replied with 1967 Sprint Spyder.....as you might have already worked out, this was certainly incorrect. My interest was peaked and we made plans for me to go and look at it the last weekend.
The weekend arrived and upon pulling down his long driveway, I was greeted with the sight of a white 1967 Guilia Spring GT Veloce. My interest in the car was already very high without me even getting out of my car to look at it!!
Anyway, long story short, the car was purchased brand new by my clients brother-in-law back in 1967. The car had always been garaged and when the original owner eventually passed away, it was left to my client to move it on to a new home. I was more than happy to make the old gentleman an offer that was within the price range he asked for.
I have since picked it up and trailered it home, ready to get stuck into rebuilding the driveline components and enjoy it.
These pics are from when my client pulled the car out of his deceased brother-in-laws garage.
Hope you enjoy
