I'm of course referring to original steel wheels for the 750-102 Spiders.

Did all Boranni wheels come with the ring on the inside for mounting weights? Or on just some?

I need to get a matching spare tire wheel for a client's 102 Spider and assume his are Fergat's. Are there any other distinguishing variations such as shape or number of holes, or...?

If the brand name is stamped on them, I can't find it, though it might show up once I have them sand-blasted. However, I'd prefer to take five wheels to the blaster.

Are you talking about a 101 or 102 Spider? If it is a 102, you might want to be in the 1900, 2000, 2600 area.

For a 101, they are very easy to tell one from the other.

The Fergats have triangle-ish shaped holes, while the Borranis have oval holes. As shown in the pictures.

Also Borranis have a stamp on them saying "Brevetto Borrani", on the ooutside near one of the hubcap clips.

skiwalk, thanks for your photos and definite ways to tell between the two types of wheels.

I'm curious, that when I use 102 as the model, I get suggestions for all types of Alfa's. The 102 I'm referring to is a transition 102 Spider. It is identical to a 101 Normale other than having a padded dash, chrome rear ****pit surround, and silver gauges and knobs.

It has a 1300 Normale engine so no bump on the hood.

I'll just throw in that I've felt it is a pain to get the wrinkle paint really even on the top of 750-101 Spider dashes, but overall much less of a pain than fitting the aftermarket padded dash.

The number "102" is the series cars with cast iron 2 liter engines. "101" is the number for all Giuliettas after the "750" series cars (1959), up until the Giulia "105" series cars (1962).

For what you describe, your car is a 101 series.

The trick to getting the wrinkle paint dash is to use heat lamps and go slow.

Hello Biba,
The Giulietta that you are describing is a 10103 giulietta normale spider.
The correct engine for this series is AR00102.00000
Which is a 1300 normale
The car is 101 series giulietta. Because the correct engine is a"00102" that is making it confusing.
Not an "interim" or "transition" spider either, because that would have a 1315.110000 engine designation generally.
The 00102 engined giulietta is a true 101 series car.
Hope this helps, the numbering system is a bugger.

The 102 series cars are the Larger Touring bodied 2000 spiders, which look similar to the 106 series (2600 Touring Spiders)

You are correct, it is not a 102, but a 101.23 Giulia. Which I do believe makes it a transition car. You are correct regarding the engine which is 102 30939 and comes from a '61 Giulietta Spider. I'm not sure why but Fusi has two lines for 101.23 '62 Giulia Spiders.

I was under the impression that the engine was original.

101.23 is a 1600 Spider.
That would have a 00112 engine prefix for 1600 normale
The hood and the model tag are easily interchanged, which could have happened in the past.
There are other slight differences that occur in the 1600 spider body, notably where the heater valve mounts.
