A few years ago I produced a magnesium replica of the SZ wheel, and I am now making a cast aluminium version of the same wheel.It is in die cast aluminium, and weighs 6.2kgs, and is available in 5 X 15 or 5.5 X 15.
Cost is £175:00 per wheel.
Hi Chris Very cool Please post some photos of what you make for our cars.
Are Yours Lighter Than The Hildabran (sp) If so just a bit.
Bob, Mine are the Alum. Hildabran also from England some where. thay are about the same LBs as the Stock wheels But more sold and stiff. As Pat said if unsprung is what you want go with the race wheels... But if on the street On pot hole and there bent. I know I drive around Berkekley and Oakland and the light wheels can not take the little pot holes. I drive to miss them But every so offten thay get you.
The wheels should be about 6.2kgs,the Heinbrand wheels when I last weighed one was over 8kgs.They are still very strong because they are heat treated and have strengthening ribs in the rear, the same as the magnesium wheels I made a few years back.I hope to have the first wheels in my hands early next week, and will try to get some photos and technical specs.
I have a set of Chris's mag wheels on my SZ and they are terrific. Strong, light, good looking and they fit without spacers etc etc. If the new alloys are to this standard then they will be the must-have for road or track on your Giulietta or Giulia
I haven't been able to get the photos of the wheels up on this board, but have loaded them onto my web site at RM Restorations - The Alfa 750/101 Specialists for anybody interested.The finished weight of the wheel has come out at 6.5kgs and not 6.2 as originally calculated.
Hope you like them.
The wheel finish is silver.It's just a reflection from the floor surface with the flash that gives the gold effect.A more accurate colour can be found if you look on the web site link in a previous post.
Has anyone had any experience with purchasing reproduction Giulietta spider dash tops, or is there a historic thread on ABB on this subject?
Options I have found include
1) Centerline Alfa out of the USA (in stock) - Dash Cover 101 Spider | Centerline International
2) Classic Alfa...
I purchased a spare rear window for my 101 Sprint Veloce from a Sun Valley junkyard. I purchased in the early 1970's and noticed a slight green tint. I was told that the green tinted rear window was an option and wanted to know if anyone had a green rear window in their Sprint.
The photo shows a large oval hole where my heater hoses route through the firewall, and above and below you can see screw holes for what I assume is the grommet clamp.
All the research I've done shows two separate round holes for the hoses. Anyhow, does anyone have, or know where I can...
Hi AlfaBB Community,
I recently acquired a 1959 Giulietta Sprint project car. It was built in October of 59 which makes it a transitional car. It had been raced in period and then put away in a barn for 50 years. Can you help me identify if the current steering wheel and instruments are correct...
purchased a 1300 from a 72? Giulia Super to put in my 62 Giulietta Spider. Oil Pan is slightly different.
Is it acceptable practice to modify the cast alu sump from the 101 engine to replace the Bat Wing sump on the 105 motor.
Looks like holes need to be drilled or studs need to pulled out of...
