AR3024822

Here’s mine:

Telaio:AR3024822
Modello: 2000 GT Veloce USA
Codice Tipo: 115.01
Data di Produzione: 26 Agosto 1974
Data di Vendita: 28 Agosto 1974
Mercado di Destinazione: Englewood Cliffs, NJ
Colore esterno: Faggio
Finizione interni: Tessuto plastificato (love that word) color cuoio naturale

Is there a general rule of thumb as to where a 1975 model starts? I ask b/c in US auto manufacturing, an August 1974 production date could make it a 1975 model.

Interestingly, this car has engine AR01500*11628*, and the Certificao di Origine (attached) says “Il numero di serie del motore AR 11628 corrisponde a quello montato come primo equipaggiamento.” I always thought there were no “numbers matching” Alfas....

Model: 1750 GT Veloce USA (105.5)
Chassis #: AR 1532442
Production Date: May 31, 1971
Color: Rosso Amaranth
Interior: Wild Boar Leather Tex
35k miles by two owners. Stored in barn since 1976 after the head was removed and rebuilt by Bobcor. Rebuilt head was never installed. A newspaper dated 1976 was used to seal the space between the engine block and head and was found in this condition when mechanical work was begun. Currently undergoing a complete restoration.

I have the same year, model and color. Fairly close to your chassis number, little later. Would love to see how your restoration progressed. Just starting mine.

Hi. We recently purchased a '67 GTV: AR1222573. Based on the existing registry it would appear that this was originally built as a 1300 Junior.

Any thoughts or additional information available on this number? I've contacted AR in both English and Italian but have received no response.

Thanks.

d'Amico & Tabucchi put chassis 1222573 as a Series 1 (flatdash) GT 1300 Jr manufactured in 1968. Alfa parts manuals put the start of Series 2 Jrs (1750 dash) with chassis 1230001.

Is there no Tipo No. plate on the car's firewall? I'd guess that it was built sometime between 9/10 ~ 9/15 1968, as a GT Junior, type 105.30.

Yves,

I live in Montreal. a friend of mine told me that my father owned the following Chassis #:

3020582 - 2000 GTV USA built 06/72
Originally champagne; black vinyl interior
Repainted Milano red, then Farina Red in 1996
Was owned by a bb member in Boston as of 2007

it seems to fit the description as my dad did repaint his GTV to a milano red (i can show you pics of it as proof :).

would you happen to remember (or have contact info of said person) who you sold it to? I would love to buy it back as it has sentimental value.

thanks
Mauro

That gives a definite date when the high arches were set up for the 1600.
My 1967 with low arches as mentioned before was made the 16th October 1967
Cheers Steve
Wow Steve! Yours was built the 16th, mine the 17th, and now after 51 years, they still reside probably less than 20k's apart from each other on the other side of the world from where they were built!!! I find that amazing! :surprise::surprise:

The other thing that is really surprising is the difference in the rear guards.....it's like they've run out of the low arches at the end of shift of the 16th and started using high arches at the start of shift on the 17th (probably incorrect, but it's a thought....it would be awesome to actually tie the change down to an actual chassis number.....yours could potentially be the last low arch or mine may be the first high arch....you never know! :grin2:
