Hmm...

the GTV which I lost the bid on eBay was actually one of only eleven 1750 GTV made between 72-73, interesting.

Graphin' the Figures

I am not sure if those figures are model years or actual manufacture dates. Most likely the latter. My '67 was built 4/6/66. Say Sniady, have you sent your VIN to Alfa yet?

Speaking of rare model years, my '81 Spider was one of 1486 produced. Alfa had labor problems and was switching over to the Bosch injected models.

Good question Sniady. Mapquest reports an Englewood in Colorado, New Jersey, Florida, Ohio, Kansas, Tennessee and California. If I had to guess, I'd say NJ. My red GTV was first sold in Newark. I believe that NJ was a major East coast funnel for Alfas.

Anyone else interested in their Alfa's origin? Send a polite (my suggestion) email to [email protected].

Sold on the 11th of October 1973 to Alfa Romeo from Englewood Clidds, USA.

Any idea where that is?

Oh man Sniady, you're killing me again! Well leave it up to Elvira's poor English. I searched mapquest for "englewood clidds". A map of the entire U.S. popped up! Then I searched for "englewood cliffs" and lo and behold, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey.

Did she give you the manufacture date too? The three VINs I ran were built and sold within a matter of days. My white GTV was built four days after I was born and then sold two days later in the same country I was born in. It was fate I tell ya. Should I name her Christine?

I searched for Englewood Clidds for 30 minutes, then I just gave up.

By the way, it says my car was manufactured on the 8th of october and sold on the 10th. It don't think that's accurate


Thanks Kai.

Quick Sell

Yeah Sniady I was wondering about that quick turn around too. The info on my white GTV says it was sold to Alfa of Frankfurt. Perhaps the factory allocated your GTV to a NJ dealership two days after it was assembled.

Englewood Cliffs, NJ was where ARI's (ALfa's US operation) headquarters was located. It was the port of entry for US Alfas. They also had a west coast location in El Segundo, CA. They were both closed down when Alfa did the deal with Chrysler in the early 90's and formed ARDONA, which moved the US headquarters to Orlando, FL.

Ciao,

Haha! :D My GTV was "born" on 30th May 1973!!

According to our documentation files the chassis number AR 115.01.3021886 originally corresponds to an Alfa Romeo 2000 GT Veloce Usa edition, manufactured on the 30th May 1973 and sold on the same date to Alfa Romeo from Englewood Cliffs, Usa.

The body colour is amaranth red.
Going to setup a birthday party for her tonight.

:D

? - any idea what color is amaranth red. :D

Kai, are you sure about the 63 Giulia Sprints? I ask because I think that these were 101 bodies (what was previously callled the Giulietta). The 101 body was continued through 64 and sold side by side with the 105 body coupe and both were called Giulia Sprint GT by then.

Kai, check out Reinaintlauto.com and click on the exotics link. Scroll down and you'll see a baby blue 101 body Giulia Sprint GT model year 1964. This is the stuff that makes Alfa registers so hard to compile.

The Baby Blue 1964 Sprint @ Reina Intl...

... Was lovingly restored by my friend Gary Wirth, God rest his soul.

Before he passed away, he would flog that car mercilessly. It was a beautiful thing. Often, he would show up at club TSD rallies with no navigator - and with no intention of coming close to the allotted stage times. The rally was just another excuse for him to drive flat out!

Gary and the car have been immortalize by artist Bo Monroe in this limited edition print ... "Encounter on Kubly Road".

Gen. I am familiar with the 101 Alfas. I titled this thread "GTV Production Figures". These figures apply to the 105 series only.

I obtained this information from Brizio Pignacca's book entitled, "Alfa Romeo Giulia GT". I was fortunate enough to have found an English version of this book. Great book with lots of pictures.

Check out this (real) '67 on the cover. ;) Looks like my baby.

I'm still kinda confused?! Do the years refer perhaps to production date? Because, as we all know, 64's start selling in the fall of 63, etc.(etceterini--oops!). I was pretty sure that the prototype was shown in 63 and that the first model year was the 64. In addition, all the other sources I've seen state that the veloces (real, of course) where begun in 67. I'm lost!!

Pssst, Gen. the thread title is "GTV Production Figures" not "GTV Model Years". ;) I do believe the book's table is referring to actual production dates. (I like this guy - he takes my poking fun so well)

You are correct that the GT Sprint was introduced in '63 as a '64 model. However, the book states, "The Giulia GTC and GTA appeared at the 1965 Geneva Motor Show." It then states, "The Geneva Motor Show, held in Spring, was again chosen by Alfa Romeo for the presentation of a third variation on the GT theme: the Giulia Sprint GT Veloce." What the book failed to mention was what year this second Geneva show took place. Presumably in 1966. However, the production table does list GT Veloces being produced as early as 1965. 770 units in 1965, 6129 in 1966, 5173 in 1967 and 27 produced in 1968. I think the thing to remember was that there was a lot of overlap of outgoing and incoming Alfa models through out the years. As you mentioned Gen., the 101 Sprint GT's were still being produced as the 105 Sprint GT's began their life.
