Photos of 105 GTV's.

I'm trying to decide whether or not to keep the original colour (Francia Blue) on my 69 GTV. But could not easily find photos of GT's in the other colours offered by ALFA ROMEO. Could we get a thread started with photos of just BBers GTs - or will this be a burden on the BB?

You could start it, and then see if you can get a Mod to sticky it in the GT thread. that way it doesnt look like we are hijacking the picture room with our own exclusive gallery, and yet it's still easy to find and always stays at the top of the list!

My French blue 69 is on Ebay right now... it has never been painted and looking in the trunk and door jams at the non-faded areas it looks nothing close to the blue on 101/105 Guy's car. My car still has the original color decal on the trunk lid. His looks more like Le-mans blue. Is French Blue for the earlier cars that much different? I remember reading the Hemmings article and thinking they got the color wrong. :confused:

My initial idea for the thread was to get photos of cars in a standard trim - as opposed to modified trim (as is the case for race prepared cars) also with colours identified. I'll post my car in the condition I bought it.

Anthony, the thread you direct us to is great as well - it's just that the paint colours are not identified.

Wctouring is correct as well - 101/105 is not "French Blue AR 342" but "Lemans Blue AR?".

Haven't seen all the colours yet ........Keep posting!

The colours on this 37 years old slide aren't quite accurate, but here's by first GTV (1969, 1750) in Yellow Ochre

Mine is Alfa Rosso, I think the colorcode is 501. Last year I had a panel an rust fixed together with a proper paint job. Next week I will have the car polished from all minor surface scratches and a sealing of the paint.
