Hi all ! Have been observing the Alfa BB for years from a distance and thought I should probably join as I am finally able to make a good push at continuing and possibly finishing the restoration on my 1973 GTV , original cloth interior and air conditioning , European car imported to Ontario , Canada in 1974 and has been here ever since .

Hi Ranz , first my apologies , still trying to figure out uploading photos , the two I did manage to get on here are from before the resto started , the original colour is silver which I am going back to . I disassemble her completely and the body went on a rotisserie then my son's hobbies put mine on hold for the last 5 years . We got into kart racing pretty heavy and restored a 76 Datsun 280z that he purchased . He is now able to look after his project on his own now so my attention has quickly gone back to the Alfa. I will try and get some photos up showing what is currently going on but in short , standard rusty rockers , rust in lower rad support , new lower fender and quarter panel pieces and a little bit around rear windshield , have purchased panels from Classic Alfa (very impressed with their service). I will be working on it this weekend so photos will follow.

Does anyone have any photos or own a GTV with the cloth/fabric seats , I can't seem to find anything at all . I did contact Alfa Romeo and the build option for my car does show it as original . Luckily mine are in very nice condition and the material seems to be very durable.
