Thank you Bill. Yes, I may well start a thread to document the process. Judging by Fusi records it appears as if only about 4500 RHD 105.09 cars were ever built. It think that would definitely make her worth saving.I don't have what you are looking for, but agree the car is lovely and appears well worthy of a restoration. Please keep us updated on how it turns out.
Hi Jannes,We're starting restoration of a lovely Bluette 1600 Ti sedan.
Does anyone perhaps have an original owner's manual and/or parts catalogue for sale?
Hi RobHi Jannes,
I do have a copy of a full works spareparts catalog. there are over 600 pages. I assume its complete but I am not certain about that. I copied it many years ago from an Alfa Romeo dealer.
I'm asking US125 for it,
It weighs close to 6 lbs without shipping box. Shipping will coast you about US120. I can tell you exactly when I have your address.
Please PM me at ralandman (at) G-mail for photo's
Thank you Brian. I wasn't aware of the different versions.I'm not sure which of these is appropriate for your car. The second one is probably more for the 67 models. That first one has a publication date of 1963. Contact @papajam to see which one is appropriate.
There are actually a lot more versions than these plus many of them have revisions/supplements to each version. So much so it can make your head spin!Thank you Brian. I wasn't aware of the different versions.
I am happy to see folks who see the value of original documentation. Hopefully, you'll be able to locate some original manuals.Yes, thank you very much again Andrew.
For this particular project I’ll need original documents in addition to copies.
Which reminds me about the reprints. All of the original manuals, no matter how perfect they are have an old smell to them. When i was shopping for manuals in Imola in 1997, one vendor opened the manual and stuck his nose in it. He took a big long sniff. New ones smell new and old ones smell old.You're already provided with an owners manual I see. For anyone else looking for one, be sure to check subito and kijiji, loads off them on there. As mentioned Franco Luperini has pretty much anything, at a price though...
By the way, FCA have started reprinting them, though I much prefer an original example.
