lady and the tramp

Not the prettiest background but this shot shows the difference between my two 105’s.

The Lady- the green, completely stock, 67 Giulia Sprint Veloce
The Tramp- 69 gtv with lots of fast street mods (lowered, 205 tires, lots of engine work, etc.) and most badges removed.

My 1966 Sprint GT...A work in progres!
Superb looking car Joseph! Really happy to see these photos as I have just purchased the same wheels for my white 67 Veloce and was wondering how it will look once they are mounted.....you have answered my question and I am a very happy man....it looks great and I'm sure it will look even better once the weight is back on the wheels! Cheers!

Hi Dave,

Any chance you have a build thread on 'the tramp'? I am quite interested in the suspension specs etc......it looks awesome when compared to the stock 67 and I would be very keen to do the same on my 67 Veloce.

Many thanks!

Hi Paul if you get in touch with Vin Sharp he can give you all the information you need. My car has springs and shocks supplied by his business and I'm very happy with how it looks and handles.

There is a build thread but it does not address the suspension. The car has Eibach springs and Koni reds. No rear anti sway bar. The car handles really well but is very harsh. Great on smooth roads but not so much on imperfect roads. The pan guard hits a lot. Be careful of what you wish for... The Green car is much more pleasant to drive but not as fun. My wife tolerates rides in the Black car but LOVES the Green one. I am keeping the Green one stock.

Here is a good thread for your interests: https://www.alfabb.com/threads/input-on-centerline-springs-koni-reds-oem-swaybars.678310/
I'm sure there are more

Thanks so much Dave.....I totally understand the conundrum regarding lowering the car vs. eventual ride quality. Will read the suggested thread with interest! Many thanks!

mark249am,

What a stunning photo of a beautiful Series 2 1750! I have a Series 2 also.

  • Here's a shot of my newly refurbished '71 GTV at Laguna Seca in November. This was it's first return to L/S since the work was completed. The car felt great...I suspect it's much faster than it's driver.
  • The next shot shows my son Michael, and I playing tag...he's in my pre-retirement car, a '74 GTV.
  • The third pic is the biggest blast at the track...full on gas down the corkscrew.
It's great to have the car back on the track as well as going to the grocery store.

Does the front spoiler make a difference?

I can say that when I owned the black '74 it was quieter after the spoiler went on (maybe because less air was going underneath the car) and I also got to slightly higher rpms at the end of longish track straights.
With the red '71, yes it's quieter too, but we also put single sheets of Dynamat in the center of large interior sheets of metal during the restoration. Now a Santo's Italian 2L with a moderately built Wes Ingram FI resides under the hood vs the George Willet 1750/FI system it had when i bought it...so several factors give me more rpms.

Heck I did NOT expect it to make the car quieter. Interesting, but a few extra rpms is telling and worth it!
