    This wheel was left behind by the buyer of my '59 2000 Touring about, oh, 35 years ago(!) Corrosion you see is very surface will bead blast back to near perfection, cool old bolt on weights in place. Tire is an NOS Cinturato 185x400 never mounted but probably display only given age. Hope...
  5. 1600 Rebuild - Stock or Modified?

    GT (1963-1977)
    Then of course there is all the fun over debating what is 'original!' I am not an alfa expert so happy for correction. My example may have inappropriately extrapolated from a GTA datapoint; the GTAj wore 165-14. My particular car is one of those crazy extended production GTAj that Alfa kept...
  6. 1600 Rebuild - Stock or Modified?

    GT (1963-1977)
    Keep it Stock. Now that I'm firmly in the second half of my car-guy life, actuarially speaking, I am coming down harder every day on the side of originality. My rationale is pretty simple: it seems to me that the ultimate goal of any connoisseur is to develop an epicurean appreciation for a...
  7. Paint or Powdercoat

    GT (1963-1977)
    I've had good experience with both. I don't quite understand the critique on powder coat; it is incredibly durable. I once had a restoration ship refinish a set of 90 year old wire wheels that someone had powder coated and for a while I thought they would never talk to me again; it took...
  8. New Owner ( 776131 ) questions

    GTA (1965-1975)
    I'm sucker for preserved graphics/stickers/decals and delighted to see this very nice Koni sticker in what is a vulnerable position. 41 year-old-shocks aren't conducive to ideal suspension performance but you pick your battles...
  9. New Owner ( 776131 ) questions

    GTA (1965-1975)
    Biscione Installed The GTAj didn't have the Biscione and when I took delivery, I discovered why: the hood paint had a series of blemishes. I took it to favorite restoration shop for repaint but they suggested attempting to polish it out first. That worked great and I applied the serpent...

    GTA (1965-1975)
    Thank you, that is great detail. Lots of pictures of my GTAj on Alfabb, but I just now posted a shot from my driveway 2 mos back: http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/7158065-post3.html I'm working on getting the hood graphics restored: the paint on the hood was not good and needed work. Almost...

    Wedding day prop 776131 Bless her heart she wanted to be photographed next to that 'cute white car.' Creating some links to previous threads that mention 776131: http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/gta-1965-1975/391826-1975-alfa-romeo-gta-junior.html#post6057138...

    GTA (1965-1975)
    It's always interesting to assess folks' views of 'originality.' I am eager to find reference examples as I assess my newly acquired '75 GTA Junior #776131 However this car has been so heavily detailed that it raises more questions than answers: the headers have been jet-hot coated...

    Now that's a lot of camber
  15. New 14" tyre for the GTA from Pirelli. 185/70VR14 Cinturato CN36

    GTA (1965-1975)
    original tire specs Perusing the technical manual supplement that came with the GTAJ I found this page which names the Michelin and Pirelli tires that I guess were spec'd originally. Interesting to see the Michelin XAS. Manual is dated 1968.
  16. New 14" tyre for the GTA from Pirelli. 185/70VR14 Cinturato CN36

    GTA (1965-1975)
    new CN36 on 776131 Thanks to OP and Longstone Tyre
  17. Tire Suggestions?

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I have ordered from Longstone multiple times, and just got my 185/70 15s's for my GTA Jr last week. They took 4 days from time of order (I'm in NJ) and cost ~$120 ea IIRC given current pound/dollar exchange rate, shipping included. The previous set I got (3-4 yrs back) was some Michelin XWX...
  18. New 14" tyre for the GTA from Pirelli. 185/70VR14 Cinturato CN36

    GTA (1965-1975)
    Wikipedia entry says the CN36 debuted 1969. So period correct at least for a '75 Jr! :smile2: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pirelli_Cinturato
  19. Italian job

    GTA (1965-1975)
    Thanks for the story and comprehensive post! All concerned are candidates for preservation sainthood! I volunteer to drive when it comes to compete in the US!
  20. New Owner ( 776131 ) questions

    GTA (1965-1975)
    I'm a long time collector although I haven't owned an Alfa since my 20's when I had a pair of Touring body 2000's. I just took delivery of 776131, a 1975 GTAJ sold by Bonhams at Greenwich. I bought it sight unseen relying heavily on old posts by folks on this forum for validation, so first of...
