My 1964 Giulia Sprint GT

After about one hundred posts, it was time to send some pics of my Giulia Sprint GT... It's a 1964, colour Verde Muschio 209, engine 1600 with some small tuning (camshaft, free air intakes, free exhaust pipe) as I found when I bought the car from the PO. The body is not perfect, but I use this car for some classic rally race; I will repaint the car when I will stop to risk the body in some narrow mountain road...
Ciao

Looks fabulous!

Curious about the vented oil cap and what looks like a pressurized coolant recovery bottle. Could detail a little bit about them?

Of course, Jim! It's simply a kind of "catch tank" for oil vapors, hand made by the PO. I think that the bottle WAS a former coolant overflow bottle.. But it works...
I know it's mandatory for racing use. I really think I don't need it, as the bottle is always empty, but it makes very "racing style"...
Thank you all for the compliments!
PS: about the yellow stripe, don't you think that the PO should be a Lotus lover?

That is a VERY nice Scalino - congrats. I do in fact like the paint scheme - although it does look a bit too Lotus!

and after the real one....

As you can see, I am trying to make a copy of the real one. What do you think about this "small clone"? (starting from a red Tamiya 1:24 GTA...)
ciao

Hi 116, the Giulia Sprint GTA by Tamiya is a 1/24 scale plastic model that you can find normally in the model shops. You can also check on ebay.
If you want to have it painted green as mine, please send me the body to italy...

That is a very proper looking Sprint GT! Very racy looking.

My GTA has the same cam cover vent cap. Is that just an aftermarket item?

Does your car still have its dunlop rear brakes?

Hi Borrani, I think that the vented oil cap is an aftermarket one. I have found it on the car when I bought it. But it's very common on classic racing alfas.
Yes, I have the rear Dunlop brakes (and sometimes I would prefer to have the Ate, more reliable and effective)!
Ciao

Great looking "Scalino" there Antonio, makes me keen to start on the restoration of my '64 Sprint GT.

Out of interest, what is your chassis number, mine is 10502 751969, my car is RHD and was assembled in South Africa.

Cheers
