1965 Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint GD (Bertone Blue)

Modifications

Drivetrain
Installed original optional Weber 45 DCOE-9 carburetors. Designed reproduction original style carburetor to intake plenum adapter plates.
Interior
Original leather remains, although it's quite dry and needs attention.
Original carpets have been replaced.
Heater control box was painted the same color as the exterior, but it's supposed to be a wrinkle finish grey that matches the dash board color.
Exterior
Largely original metal. Never been in an accident. Paint may be a little off since it's been repainted a couple of times.
Audio
It has a piece of crap radio from the 90's. I'd rather find a blue tooth amp to connect to my cellphone and get a factory radio blanking plate. That's what all the cool kids are doing.
Suspension
Springs and shocks were replaced in about 1995. Koni Adjustable shocks.
The steering box was replaced by the previous owner.
Wheel and Tire
I once had made some 15 inch steel wheels and had 195/60 tires, but they never looked right. The car currently has the original wheels, hubcaps and 165/400 Michelin tires which are very capable and quiet.
