Hi and welcome to the Alfa BB.Anyone knowing about the story of the GTA 1600 #AR613102 ?
I like the GTA, and would like one day to have one. No hurry for that, so I start to learn about this model, identify the potential interesting chassis number: an Autodelta car is more interesting than a Stradale, and I try to find out what are the car potetially for sale, or not yet for sale but very nice history, in order to look after them and be ready when they will come to the market.
I have bought the GTA book of Tabucchi today, and see the cars offered on anamera etc.
Thanks for your help
Hello SGA,I simply try to identify the potential GTA to be targeted for a purchase for me:so 613011, '039, '898, '910,'934 and '102 are cars Autodelta, with then nice race history.
I don't know if these cars are still alive, if they had bad crash, or wrong restoration etc but I think these are potentially the Top GTA to be owned one day ?
Am I wrong ?
So I started to search about '102 because I have read it has been your car, that's all.
As there are lots of replica of GTA, I prefer to get info from owner, or pre owners etc rather than "dealers" etc, and as you had this car I wondered to get from you accurate info. But it seems you don't want to share this. No problem.
I did not asked you the name of the present owner, I just want to know the history of the car from it birth in Arese up to your ownership.
I search the same info for the other chassis number here above.
Thanks in any case.
Hello GTA246GT and others,Agree. I hade a few PM from SGA2000GTV I asked for identification, but no good answer.
From time to time questions like this turns up on different forums only with the purpose to create a fake car.
Its absolutly your thing to give out the s/n or not - but one stupid question just for me to understand: what Harm can Be done by knowing the number?That was the reason, i dont gave my chassisnumbers to Adriansen! Equal they are not listened now, the Allegeritta book is no works document, many numbers of cars i know ,are not mentioned.
Hello Don,Its absolutly your thing to give out the s/n or not - but one stupid question just for me to understand: what Harm can Be done by knowing the number?
Hello Marcel,Thank you, that makes sense to me. On the other side - if your No. is in a book together with the known historie, it could help to prevent a replica with your s/n.
Just for curiousity: Adriansens has his list of numbers from owners and clubs. In his book my s/n isn't included. But from which source has Tabucchi his list for the Leggera book, as there is my s/n included, but without having ever contacted the previous owner.
Dear Keith and MarcelIt was my understanding that Adriaensen was not allowed to see info from the Alfa Archives. He gathered most or all of his data from personal contact in Europe and forms sent out to owners and returned to him. We sent a form about our car, but didn't know all the history in 1993, when he was collecting the data. Apparently Tabucchi got access to the actual Alfa Archives. All the serial numbers and build years could only have come from the Museum archives.
