Gta ar 752691

Goodmorning everyone!
Ask for help, I have been restoring the gta rhd that my father bought in 1969 for many years. Since then he has always remained in the family.
However, after years of work and money spent, I have almost reached the end of the restoration ...
All I need is the clutch lever (for rhd) that has been lost over the years, can anyone help me?
I am attaching some photos
Thank you
Matteo Grandi

Hello Matteo. Welcome to the Alfa BB.

I am very happy to hear from a RHD GTA owner.

The clutch lever you are looking for; is it the one that attaches to the under floor bracket and pin shown in your first picture?

If so you will most probably need to source it used in the UK. I am away from my documents but I am pretty sure that it is likely common to the RHD GT and probably RHD Spider and RHD Giulia.

Once I am home next month I may be able to help you find one.

In the mean time you can email me at

Ciao

Hello Matteo,
Another RHD GTA lives! What a great story the car having been in the family for so long. Fantastic! Yours is the second RHD GTA discovered in Italy after a long period (Alfaholics, 752578). Is there any particular reason why RHD would be sold there?
If there is anything I can be of assistance with please ask.
regards,
Vince. GTA 572556

Vsharp many thanks for your kindness! This is the story of my gta:
Produced in 1965 it was sold in Siena in 1966 and was later sold to San Giovanni Valdarno (province of Florence) where the number plates change to the current FI 436776.
In 1968/69 thanks to a great friend and mechanic of the famous SCAR of Florence (the legendary Paolone) The GTA was bought by my father who was driving it until 1971 and after an incident he decided to turn it into a left-hand drive.
In 1974, not happy, my father ends up astray with the gta and instead of scrap he decides to park her at home ....
Towards the 2000s we decided to start the restoration and bring back the right-hand drive to avoid compromising originality.
To date we have not yet completed the long restoration but we are almost there!
The only thing that has been lost over the years and we can't find are the front brake disc guards, the ones that go between the brake disc and the spindle that are specific for the 1600 gta, if anyone has a pair to sell. .....

Not only in Italy but also elsewhere racecars are quite often RHD.
Most circuits are clockwise, i.e. most turns go to the right. So you can steer a little sharper with RHD.

Eduard, I agree what you say, in fact a RHD Giulia balances up more evenly with the driver's weight than does a LHD car for all tracks. I think this is why some 8 (?) went to the USA for Trans Am racing.
However, both these Italian RHD GTAs were only as road cars so far as appears. It is unusual in that only 50 RHD GTAs were ever produced for world distribution, & at least 2 were used on road in Italy.
Rgds, Vince.

14 RHD came to USA in 1966. 13 of which raced in the Trans Am Series. 12 were prepared at Autodelta and 2 of those may have been factory sponsored. We know where most but not all are. Some are presumed crashed and scrapped.

I certainly look forward to hearing of the Italian cars. Tabuchi lists the 50 numbers produced. Alleggerita 2nd ed list those known at time of publication.

Ciao

The Montini apparently carries number 752645 but that number is not among the 50 listed by Tabuchcci making it #51??? and it is said there are other chassis issues with it.

Your 752691 is the highest listed number but not necessarily the last built as we know they were not built on order.
