1750 GTV Project.

Hi

I recently bought a 1750 GTV (the one I already posted pictures of) and thought you guys would like to see pictures.

After a bit or work the engine is starting first time and sounds great.

The work that is going to be done is on the brakes and the rust. The middle and outer sills have rusted on both sides, there is a few holes in the floor pans and around the doors have rusted. There is also a few places that will need a little work on the top half of the body.

I will post pictures when new work is done.

Picture 3 is the mechanics 1300 GT Junior.

Hi, good luck with the project. Every 105 series car is worth saving and you will find a huge amount of information on the BB, I know I have. I notice your earlier post was asking for ideas on what the car was worth, if you don't mind me asking (as an owner of a 2000GTV in NZ) what did you end up paying?

Paid $2500. I think I got a pretty decent deal, especially since the stripped out GT Junior in the photos was bought for $2000.

Sounds like a fair price, parts are reasonably priced and if you can do most of the work yourself you will end up with a good car at a reasonable cost. It is good to see the prices for well sorted cars rising internationally, I always told my wife mine was a good investment.

Everyone I've talked to said that I'm not going to loose money, and I cant do any of the body work and some of the mechanical work. It's good because almost all of the parts work.

Welcome

Good to see more NZers on this site. I have found it to be a wonderful resource if you need info. I notice you have put some mags on the car. Do you want to sell the steel hubcaps? Im in Auckland but in CHCH quite often. Have a look at my current project

Hi

Those aren't my mags, they are the mechanics and just wanted to see what they would look like. Sorry but I'm keeping the steel hubcaps at the moment.

Hi

Does anyone have any middle or outer sills, floor pans, front and rear wings panels? That's were the rust is and its going to be easy to buy panels.

Thanks

Hmm , now you will find out why these cars cost so much to restore.
Wolf Steel, in Canada has a good discussion on sills, worth reading,
Wolf Steel Body Panels

Buy the body panels from either Classic Alfa, Alfaholics, EB spares, Highwood Motor Co. They all come from the same source.
The quality and fit is excellent.
All have websites and can ship to you in a matter of days.
If you buy from anywhere else you will be very disappointed.
I'm serious. I've tried a 'em all.

I concur with Blue Flame. I purchased body and other bits when I had to replace my outer sills, Classic and Highwood were very good.

My wife and I loved our visit to Christchurch....did not see any 105s...good luck with yours. Panel replacement is not that difficult, just time consuming to ensure everything lines up before welding. I bought a second had MIG welder, an angle grinder and a pencil grinder with a hardened steel grinding wheel, makes the job easier.

Does this car have a lockable fuel flap? If it does then I think I used to know this car about 24 years ago. I think it used to be parked down the road from my first job. Also when I bought my gtv.
