Well, loren (import paint and body) was so impressed with how my GTV came out and fell in love with the Bertone body. So he decided to get his own. Luckily Alfa Import Center here in Charlotte had a complete (albeit rusty) unmolested 1969 1750 GTV available for sale. Funny that we think 1969 was rare for GTVs yet we have tons of them being restored here on the board.

Long way to go but bet it will be an amazing restoration. I will share pics here as I can.

Actually, they are kind of rare with only 1,232 USA versions being produced. There were almost 4 times as many Montreals made. :eek:

Glad to see it being saved. :)

Off the top of my head, close to 30,000 for the Series 1 alone.

Hi Papajam

Ok, so what about for RHD series 1 '69 GTVs, for I would assume that proportionally there would have been far more LHD cars built than RHD ones ?

Anyway, given the ravages of time, I assume that comparatively speaking there are far less now around, so great to see one more being rescued. Mine will have its day too.

The 30k number includes RHD as well. Alfa allocated 3,998 chassis numbers for the Mk1 10545. But this does not mean that 3,998 units were built. It means that Alfa could have assigned 3,998 chassis within the allocated range of numbers (1450001-1454000).
The same holds true for the 1969 10551 USA GTV; of the 1,998 chassis numbers allocated, only 1,232 were built.
I can't say for certain whether the info for determining the number of 10545 chassis built in 1969 is available but I'll take a look if you'd like.

Hi Jim

If it is possible to determine the relevant build numbers it would be of interest but please there is no need to go to any trouble over this.

Ah yes gprocket for sure but you know why that is, because they are so desirable, well perhaps apart from stepnoses IMHO. :D

Personally I like the '69s the best with the old school grille, small taillights, 1750 motor, pod dash, cool looking center console that sweeps to the rear seats and the flying buttress seats. Then again I like the step noses and the 2000s too... :rolleyes:


Here is a Vin Number Matrix I made up a while back - can't say for sure how accurate it is but it looks pretty...
