Maybe a Jerry Quinlisk painting? He did one of me in my 1300 TI, unsolicited, and mailed it to me! Alas, I believe he has since died.

Yes, it is a Quinlisk original reverse-glass painted on a cutting board. He gave to to me at the Lexington convention, he said he loved my green Super's Euro trip blog so much. Now back to the resto thread here!

Black is a nice color on these. I think there are a few around. Black with red interior would be sweet.

But it ain't gonna be cheap!!

Spare wheel: $500

Put on a Nardi and make it a rat rod. Let the police chase you.

Get the mechanicals right, put some tires on the wheels as-is, make sure the seat and steering wheel are attached then drive that MoFo. Already has rat rod patina.

Not to be pedantic, but the carabinieri cars were blu olondese with white roof, not black. The inner lights were removed not for airflow like on the Super TI, but it is where they hid the sirens!

(I have to admit, it might be fun to do to ours, just with vinyl so its removable).

In my 6 month search all over sites here in Italy, I only came across one back giulia! It is indeed are rare color, especially here in Italy.

So, I guess since the police cars were dark blue, I will have to be he bad guy driving around the Black car :-)


Bruce- you more or less nailed it-the plan is to get it drive-able and safe, and then go from there. I am curious to see how the paint looks after washing it and putting some Meguires 7 on it....i am guessing it will look pretty good (other than the primer of course)

That's exactly it, very few private cars in Italy are black - there's a stigma associated with the color. Viewed as "mafia" color or the color of private taxis.

Ideally, the bad guys had black Berlina 1750 or 2000s because they needed the trunk space

(Black was one of our first choices, but it was darn near impossible to find).

Good luck, I love the ribbon speedos and that fantastic little tach. Keep the pix coming.. I agree on the rat-rod look at least initially!

Wheels look like they are red...i would place my money on somebody painted them, other opinions?

To match the interior, eh? I've never seen red primer on Alfa wheels so it must have been a rattle can job. Have you pulled up a flap to confirm the interior color? The early ones were two-tone, even the S1 Supers were. YOu beat my October 65 Super by a year.

Yeah--Tis and Supers--in Black have been rare.
But looks very good.
Combined with a Red interior would likely make my knees go very weak.

Bob,
Avatar is the 68 Super, bought new.

If ANYONE can restore that paint it is you after I saw what you did with your spider with a tube of toothpaste.

I'm telling you, until you decide to invest $30k+, this has rat-rod written all over it. I'll check some usual sources for a clean instrument cluster. Or, put in a Formica instrument panel and go TI Super style rat-rod.

Here's a RAD go-by in a GT, perhaps a bit extreme. If GTAm's were made in the 80's by tuners they'd look like this But it is black . . . .

If you didn't we'd be disappointed George. When? If were here, I've got space at the inn on the lake. Love to welcome you with a BBQ and some Alfa friends over.
