I see that the article perpetuates the myth that there were only 50 RHD GTAs built.
Fusi lists 50 RHD GTA’s for 1965 and 140 for 1966. The 1966 listing for GTA g.d. ( g.d. = guida destra= RHD) is not directly below the GTA listing as it is for 1965 but further down the 1966 list on the next page.
1965 GTA RHD S/N 752501 to 752550
1966 GTA RHD S/N 752551 to 752191
Several well know authors have quoted the 50 figure for GTA RHD production in their texts and added to the myth. Some of the higher serial numbers show up in “Allegerita”.
Also of interest (to me anyways) is the number of 8, GTA RHD's brought to the US for the Trans Am in 1966 and the number 75, as the total number of Autodelta prepared GTA’s.
I believe that #85 has never been altered much, as were other longer raced GTA’s, since it rolled out of Alfa Romeo/Autodelta and raced in the Trans Am in 1966 (if you don’t count any race shunts it may have had) and is a pristine original.
I have attached some pdf pages from Fusi for your interest.
