While I agree any given car has a history which may involve repairs & replacement of parts, this is very different to what a model actually is or isn't.
Anyone can now buy a stepnose 'kit' from the...

Hi, Syd Fisher told me told me their 1600GTV was in the lead when the bigger cars pitted. However, somewhere along Conrod Straight passing other traffic, they got a stone through the radiator which...

Whatever your preference for pedals on right or left, is does not really matter in the case of this faking a car. A car whose chassis number is not factory listed but "overlooked" by the factory...

Yes, this is the true RHD pedal construction chosen by Alfa for the application. It is FAR SUPERIOR for driving & racing especially, because it spaces the pedals evenly each side of the steering...

Interesting project! There is a GTV6 with a 550 Maranello engine in it somewhere around here in Melbourne. Also, I have a 1750 which once had a tipo33 Alfa V8 for racing, (however no longer in it...

I would not call the builder an idiot, perhaps unfamiliar with RHD when he was doing the conversion. Until I owned a LHD, I had no idea of the
substantial difference in the manner the pedals are...

Hi Tim & PSK, no, the picture has not been flipped, (I thought this too at first glance) only the LHD bake/clutch pedal opening has been shifted across to the Right. You can see the LHD gas pedal...

Yes, I see....the gas pedal hole is in the LHD position, so incorrect for RHD anyway. And then the LHD pedal opening re-positioned to the RH side, incorrect as well.
I can only assume, IF Mr...

The first picture is NOT correct for a RHD 752 car. The pedal opening is not in the correct position and it is not even the correct type. RHD is completely different arrangement to LHD.
Also the gas...

FYI folks, If you look at #2 & #4 mains you can plainly see this is a 2000 crank not 1750. So it is 6 bolt & the flywheel mounting parts shown don't belong to it. From the shape of the rear-most...

Eduard, I agree what you say, in fact a RHD Giulia balances up more evenly with the driver's weight than does a LHD car for all tracks. I think this is why some 8 (?) went to the USA for Trans Am...
