No this number is on the fire wall in the engine bay right in the middle just below the wind screen wipers.

I can cleanly see where the number should be and it actually looks brazed over.
If its been brazed over could you just melt it out?

And sorry about the mistake re number in boot frame.

Slight correction; the number stamped in the boot frame is the vehicle TYPE number, not the chassis number.

alfa2go My Super just has the Tipo number 10528 in that channel, but it is an earlier year

The numbers on a GTV are in the channel around the boot lid opening.

PSk I've corrected by previous post but so you will notice:

Note GTV's ALSO have the chassis number below the rear window in the boot opening frame ... would Guilia saloons do the same?

PSk If it was my car, and if you really think the chassis number was welded over, I would cut that piece out of the bulkhead so you could see the chassis number as hopefully the stamping on the inside would still be readable.

I would then purchase some stamps and a piece of metal and stamp the number in it and weld this piece back into the bulkhead, clean all welds ... paint and nobody would be any the wiser.

I though would document via photos incase somebody ever challenged you.

Chassis numbers

I think some Giulia saloons were assembled in Rhodesia (Zimbabwe)during sanctions at the BMC factory in Umtali along with Isuzu trucks,which had no badges or identification.There were many strange things happened to keep in front of the Brits .

alfavirusnz That`s a USA thing only. If the car has been registered in NZ previously that helps as the car would have had a chassis number registered with the registration number so there must be some trail. You may have to pay for a manual check at Palmerston North where the national vehicle register is where they can cross reference with the old plates you have

WA-Alfa Where the Alfas supposed to have a chassis number also hidden on the windshield post under the gasket or something?

GTV-074 No problems Nick!

Enough details to says its a 1300 super (as per Fusi) but just not sure of the year.

It's funny, when I first got it I couldn't tell where it was from exactly (could have been from South Africa or Malaysia - both RHD). The give away was the seat belt buckles
had the word "DRUK" which means 'press' in Dutch / Afrikaans.

So that made it South African!

Cheers.

NZ1300 Ti Thanks for the reply I feel a little better now that I know my car was not the only one. Sorry to hear you can't tell the year of your car.

GTV-074 Nick,

Same thing happened to my 1.3 Super here in Australia. From what I have been able to find it was a consulate car (some consulate worker brought it with them into Oz when stationed here) and was assembled in South Africa. For some stupid reason upon entry (or exit from South Africa) the chassis and engine numbers were removed (chassis was welded over - engine number ground off).

Seems to have been a South African thing (maybe an ploy to not identify the SA cars due to the country's blockade etc.?)

Barry Edmunds over here (Giulia register) has found similar occurances.

I have the same dilemma with mine, not exactly sure what year it is!!!

Its either a 73 or 74 , who knows.

Cheers,

Paul.
