Well, it is a genuine Giulia Sprint GT, but nothing about it is GTA. It even has the early upholstery style. The earliest had the same seats but with cloth inserts in the centers of them. I suspect you can add 100k miles to the odometer. It appears to have the later stainless bumpers rather than the chromed one piece. It does have the correct gray dash, and it appears that the tachometer does not have a red line marked, the true sign of a very early Sprint GT. The grill pieces either side of the center heart might be real, but the outer ones next to the turn signals don't' match the car, probably from a later 1300. Not enough slats.
All the grill pieces should be cast and chromed potmetal slat assys.
The GTA lightweight verson of this car had aluminum sheet metal, funny little door latch handles, etc.
I owned the 6th one built of this model, and I found the drivetrain to be pretty bulletproof. I put 260k miles on it before I sold it, and it was a revving fool. I would think one could easily drive across the country with this car, if nothing is obviously wrong, as it was a very simple machine, esp compared to the 164, and easy to juryrig mishaps or problems.
As Henry pointed out, this is not a GTA... I always find that a seller that doesn't know what he has could very well have good intentions, but may have inadvertently done much of the work incorrectly. The car already has a bunch of issues, so a thorough inspection and cost analysis would be prudent.
I had my injectors tested and serviced by a guy in Salt Lake City, UT. When he saw they were from an Alfa, he said he has a late 80s Spider Quad he took on trade a few years ago. He then asked if I wanted it for $900. I checked it out. I don't want it, but I told him I would pass it on the info...
I’ve been driving and tinkering with this car for about two years, it’s been fun, but I should be playing with other cars. My 164s are mad at me.
The original owner had the car in Hawaii and Canada as a street car for the first 15-ish years. It was sold to a Delta mechanic in...
Two alfas caught at crossroads - A 1985 GTV 6 and a 1970 GTV
This thread is put in this forum to solicit your suggestions and comments as Alfa connaisseurs.
I believe that because of my age I have to start downsizing. Which brings me to the Alfas at the crossroads.
By that I mean I will sooner...
I have a 91 164s with black leather interior with red stiching.
140k running with perfect 5speed.I was planing on fixing it, purchased all the parts for the repair front bumper, hood, left fender and front windshield. I am not sure what do with it at this point. I am sure someone out there has a...
