Why are so many GTAs for sale at the moment, what's going on?

Peak value time or has the FIA changed classic racing class rules ... ?

I requested more information from Ruote da Sogno and received this response.

====================


Hello Mr. Geiger

following you can find some information about the GTA.

We summarized in milestones an history of the car.

1965

The 20th of August the car is delivered to its first owner, a private person in the nearby of Genova (north-west of Italy), with Italian plate GE . . . . . .

1967

The car is sold to another private owner, still remaining in the nearby of Genova.

1971

Plates and papers are canceled and the car is retired from the road. This is likely the moment when the car starts is racing life in minor regional and local competitions, unfortunately not documented (in Italy during the 70s small races were organized almost every weekend in almost every town…).

1987

The car is “discovered” in poor conditions and with years of “battles” on his body by an Alfa Romeo enthusiast, in the backroom of a workshop, who buys the car with the intention of competing in vintage cars races.

In the same year, the new owner proceeds with a total mechanical rebuilt by the Alfa highly-specialized workshop of Angelo Chiapparini, but only small repairs job are done on the body.

1989

The car obtain the sport Fiche for vintage cars by FIA (the pictures of the certificate clearly show the car’s exterior still in pre-restoration shape).

1992

The car is sold to an Alfa collector from Torino, Italy, that starts a total restoration of the body, with the intention to re-register the car with street documents.

1994

Car obtains new plates TO . . . . . . and papers for street use. Nevertheless, the car still maintains the technical specs of a racing car.

1999

Change of ownership to another collector, still in the area of Torino.

2000

The car obtains the Italian “passaporto tecnico” released by CSAI. The fully restored body shows the actual combination in red with white front & front arches.

2004

Change of ownership to another collector.

2011

The car is bought by another Italian collector, Mr. Federico Buratti of Biella. This is the last change until the car will be bought by us, Ruote da Sogno, in 2018.

2011

The car obtains the Identity Card released by FIVA, asked by Mr. Buratti with the intention to inscribe the car to Goodwood Festival of Speed (project then aborted).

2015

The car obtains the international HTP (Historic Technical Passport) released by FIA, valid until 31/12/2025.

Unable to have the car refurbished by Angelo Chiapparini himself, who was dead in 2003, the owner decides to ask another Alfa-specialized workshop to proceed with a full refurbishment of the engine to the highest performance specs. This is the job that has been carried on by the company RS Historics, based in Milan (RS Historics ? it's our time)

2015

The car appears in an article by the Italian specialized magazine Ruoteclassiche, dedicated to Giulia Sprint GTA history and to Andrea De Adamich career (famous Italian driver of official GTAs). A video has been shooted in that occasion at the track of Monza, that is visible HERE

2016

The car takes part to the Alfa Revival Cup, Italian trophy dedicated to Alfas, with inscription and participation to Monza circuit race and Imola circuit race.


Today the car presents itself in really good conditions, showing over the brilliant Alfa red a beautiful light patina for the sporadic use on these last 18 years.

All in the car is actually on racing specs, tank is FIA homologated and still valid, and so are the race seats and belts (but it’s important to specify that the car comes with the original seats too).

The original engine of the car (type AR 502/A) is perfectly running and delivers true 170 bhp at 7500 rpm. Obviously it’s not a “sweet” engine to join a parade of vintage cars during a concours d’elegance…

The gearbox, with racing gear ratios setup, works perfectly being practically no mileage as per the rest of the mechanic.

The car still wears perfect period match Dunlop Racing tyres that were suited for the race of Monza in 2016: with only one race of consumption they are still OK for road use but one must keep in his mind to warm them well before driving at full throttle…

VIN number: AR*6133--*
Engine type: AR00502/A
Engine number: 185—
Carbs: Weber 45 DCOE14

For any additional information, we will be happy to reply to your further request.
