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.
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.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.
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.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.
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: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
