  1. Papajam wiring diagrams

    Electrical, Chassis & Lighting
    Well I know apparently papajam is the man to ask. Only problem is it looks like he hasn’t been seen around here in over a year. I’m really hoping to track down a color wiring diagram for a 73’ GTV Spica. I don’t know who may have contact info for papajam or maybe who’s taken the mantle from his...

    Carburetors, Fuel Injection & Air Intake
    OK, so I've already found my rear fuel pump needs replaced on my 73' Spica GTV. However, centerline kicked my order out within a couple hours stating the pump they sell is out of stock. I really need to get this car running this week so I can begin the tear down to bare metal. Does anyone know a...
  3. 73 nut and bolt restoration

    GT (1963-1977)
    Hey folks, a lot of the people in the GT forums have already helped out tremendously. I’ve finally gotten to work on the car and the restoration is being documented in a resto thread. Got most of the components reassembled this past Sunday to get the motor running before yanking it out. Turns...
  4. Fuel pumps dammit

    GT (1963-1977)
    So as stated in my restoration thread, found out my fuel pump (in the rear) is bad. So does anyone have the bosche OE part number for the fuel pump to cross reference? Or at least know the GPH rating for a US spec Spica GTV pump? I’m sure I can get a decent aftermarket one quickly but don’t want...
  5. Flying Buttress seat questions

    GT (1963-1977)
    I am in the middle of negotiations on the possible purchase of flying buttress seats. However, they are supposedly out of a 69’ 1750 GTV, yet neither seat has the pop up head rest (euro spec) nor does either seat have a missing head rest or place to put a top mount one. I’m concerned that I was...

  7. Let the resto begin

    Car Restoration
    Well the day has finally come. I’m sure a few of you may have noticed in my previous threads that I was a little vague about my vehicle and photos were selective. Truth is while the sale was complete I had not yet taken delivery and did not wish to jinx it or risk someone sniping the car. But I...

    Hey gang, anyone know if Jim Speck is still around? Website is still up but hasn't been updated in a decade and phone numbers disconnected. Sorry if this has already been covered. Just looking for Jim Speck and possibly if anyone knows if Mike Besic is still in the Alfa game. Thanks
  9. Another damned thread about Spica

    GT (1963-1977)
    Alright gentlemen (and ladies). Let’s have this discussion for the thousandth time. The 73’ is getting a full nuts and bolts restoration. Won’t be a piece that isn’t touched. That being said I’ve yet to make a solid decision on Spica Vs Webers (probably 45’s). The car is not going for concours...
  10. Alfetta GTV parts wanted

    Car Restoration
    Hi all. Is anyone wrecking an Alfetta GTV in SE Melbourne? I’m restoring a 1976 GTV and need a cut from the firewall. The section is hard to describe but it’s the driver’s side of the firewall, inside, near the base of the A pillar, and around the air inlet behind where the dash goes. Many...

  12. 1973 GTV color questions

    Car Restoration
    As a few know so far I have recently purchased a 73’ 2000 GTV. The car has been stripped down to metal and bondo’d but it OBVIOUSLY needs a total strip down back to bare metal and all the metal work completed. The only question left is whether to respray the original color which was Champagne (I...

    New Members Introductions - Please Read
    Haven’t been on this forum in years. Just decided to sell my ‘73 GTV. Not in showroom condition but she’s a beauty and runs great. Any tips on selling it? I used to get so many notes in my windshield with people begging to buy it, wish I kept them. Is listing it on Craigslist a bad idea? How...

  20. For Sale Seats for 1600 GTV For Sale

    Alfa Romeo Parts For Sale & Wanted
    Hello, I bought this full set of seats from a 1600 stepnose GTV last year. I was going to recover them and use them in my GTAR build but I’ve decided to use GTA replica seats instead. These seats were recovered in what I believe is red vinyl prior to my purchasing them and I don’t believe...
