1964 ar 1600 ss

Acquired this one last year, my second AR so far. Very pleasantly surprised by how lively the drive feel was.

This must have left a little dent in your wallet... 1600? Howdoes it feel compared to more modern (70's) vintage marks?

While I cannot make definitive comments on 70's cars since I am not very familiar that era, I can possibly make references in conjunction to my other 1967 AR 1600 Spider, which I believe has the same motor as the SS. Although being the same motors, the SS, relative to the Spider, is much more free revving and light to throttle resulting in much more spirited drive experience. I presume that the SS is lighter overall to the Spider too which could be another contributing factor to the driving pleasure and excitement. I do not know if this is a correct assessment but compared to the SS, the Spider is more "refined" and civilized in how she handles and how the motor responds to throttle.

Saying that, despite the same motors with different tuning (I presume), both are wonderful cars to drive with different personalities.

w/ smiles,
Jimmy

Love restoring Alfas since they won Formula 1 in 1950.

Just back from Classic Le Mans, a 1000 mile round trip for us, and the old girl performd faultlessly, with the exception of a broken tacho cable. Survived cruising at 80mph on the motorway, and some spirited back lane driving. Pic is of our gang at the Chateau Chanteloupe, where we camped for the week, about 20 mins from the circuit.

79 Alfetta Spring Veloce

In particular for Cal Guy 17 - our two cars must be a couple of the nicest in US. This was also a California car stored for about 17 years. Original except re-spray and of course the Rickie Racer wheels. Cheers!
