Hi everyone,
wondering if anyone could help me with history / racing history of a Giulia Sprint GTA , produced 24.06.1965 and sold to Torino ( Italy ) on 14 July 1965. Many thanks in advance. Vittorio

As long as there is no proof this car really exists (especially still today!) there will always remain a suspicious idea of "creating" a car around a "not used" VIN.

Sad, but true in today´s world.
May be Vittorio could explain his interest in exactly researching THIS VIN......

here we go....I appreciate your concern...the car does exist and has all the correct specs and numbers front and rear...and known history for the last 30 years. I posted on AlfaBB in order to possibly have infos about racing history while in the US. Best wishes

Pics are sooo nice sometimes....

So that GTA is now located in the US or since then ?
I´m just asking because some italian !specialists started already in the Eighties, when nobody could think about internet sources, to create "fresh" GTA´s around not very well known VIN numbers. Simply to race them with FIA papers as good cars have been rare already back then....

Hello Biscione, yes that is the car. I don't recall having you sent photos, guess you have taken it from my ad on carandclassic.

Hello Vittorio,

Yes the image is from the ad. I didn't realize that you are the seller.
What else can you say about the car; how did it acquire wide fenders? was it white originally?

the white you see on the undercarriage is an epoxy primer. the car was manufactured ROSSO with SKAI NERO FUMO interia .

I think when a GTA Serial number was published in edition 1 and edition 2 of Alleggerita the authors had some indication or proof that that GTA existed at the time of publication or was known wrecked in a race incident and so lost.

Tabucchi published a list of all GTA serial numbers he believed built. It is thought that he may have missed 1 or 2 for some reason.

Ciao
