Great picture of that dealership.
My car is on the registry and sports AR1378039.
Not sure why my timestamp is empty, but no biggie.

|brad fischer||I had been to many Alfa dealers in 1969, but I was only 8 years old at that time, so those details were not important to me. So I respect your knowledge and opinions.|

I have put some of my cars on the register. There have been a few through my hands and not all made it there I'm afraid. Maybe I should look through my records and submit what I can find.

|brad fischer||My GTV was made July 4 1970. I had another Red GTV made in about December 1969 that was 1375099. It was 99 GTVs after the change from S1 to S2 Euro/CDN/LHD. Did you put your car on the GTV register on the ABB?|

My use of the word "hybrid" was pure poetic license. I do know the 1970 was a manufactured car on its own. I just always looked at it as a mix of the best of the 69 and 71. "Best" is also subjective, especially when comparing webers/spica, buttress/non-buttress seats, etc.
Rossano, I do have a letter from Elvira stating the car was built in March of 1970. And it is wearing a 10544 plate under the hood.
Brad, our cars must be sisters. I bought it in Cambridge but the paperwork from the OMV(?) showed four other owners from all over Ontario.

Dear Mister Fischer,
with reference to your request we are informing you as follows.
According to our documentation files, the chassis number AR 1530747 originally corresponds to an Alfa Romeo 1750 GT Veloce USA (105.51), manufactured on the 25th October 1969 and sold on the 20th November 1969 to Alfa Romeo Rexdale from Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
The body colour is "cava" beige (AR 821), with black skai interiors.

Ken, My choice of wording may have been misleading. This is cut and paste from Archivio Storico.

|brad fischer||Ken, I think Canada could get US or Euro-spec as early as 1969. My father's 69 was US-spec was ordered from Alfa Rexdale Canada.|
