Works in Progress
Thank you Steve105 for all of your invaluable insight and in-depth knowledge on the 1750 thus far. Your like the 1750 Oracle. I hopped on the wait list with Wes Ingram for a return to SPICA set up, thinking that my block was a '71 only to find yesterday after pulling the engine that the # is from a '69. The new concern is that there is a shortage of pumps and cores over at Wes's as my engine was converted to Webers donkey years ago and i am missing all of the components. Back to square 1 i go.This explanation/debate may help you for your situation understand who was putting these lists together and what resources they had and what types of errors were made, errors of omission (your case), typographical errors like the case below,
So in lo0king up vin numbers for 69 1750 GT Veloce on Fusi I have encountered an anomaly. Fusi has vin #s for 69 starting at 1361339 and ending at 1360043. I am sure others have encountered this. Has anyone figured out what is going on here? According to Fusi numbers preceding 1360043 belong in...www.alfabb.com
These errors leave a trail of destruction, with many making the mistake of repeating them in club magazines articles and some errors have even found their way into booklets/books.
It's thanks to those that thought to set up the opportunity to list our cars on a Classic Alfa Romeo Registry - Sprint GT/GTV that we can slowly get a clearer picture as to which cars exist.
