Ok so this might be like trying to find a needle in a haystack that is even if it hasn't been crushed by now but I just came across a trade in invoice from 1968 with the Vin number of his 1963 Alfa Romeo. He purchased this car straight from Italy and had it shipped over to him. He purchased it from his uncle who raced Alfa Romeo's in Italy and this was was modified and tuned for racing. So the Vin is AR 355428 (2 door Giulietta coupe), is there anyone out there that knows how to break down this vin so I know more about this vehicle? Also is there some sort of registry that I could type it into and see if anyone owns it now? Any help on this would be great, thanks guys I am a total newbie to this!

It was traded in at Union Park Pontiac Inc. Wilmington DE. 19806 back on March 29, 1968 if that helps anyone in this crazy search!

You can contact Alfastorico (do a search here on the BB for the email address), and they will tell you the build date, interior and exterior colors, and delivery date of the vehicle. There's a registry of the 105 Giulia Sprint GTs here on the board. I'm not familiar with the 101 cars, but there's probably one for those too.
Good luck with the search. A couple of years ago I tracked down a car my parents owned in 1970. It took many years, and auction catalog searches and I thought the car had been lost, but in fact it had been owned by the same family for 28 years and never been on the market. I found it soon after it they had sold it to a new owner.
Hope this helps.

OK---a negative negative. Now the appropriate thing is to post a corrected pic from the negative along with the negative negative pic---for a side-by-side look :D:D

Hope your search is productive

This whole thread is a cross-post of this thread in the Giulietta forum (where somebody also posted a flipped picture making the car LHD again).
The duplication of such efforts is one of the reasons why cross-posting is inefficient and ineffective.

If you have any friends in the police force or vehicle registrations they may be able to search on the vin # to see if the car is still registered or perhaps its last registration date. If you don't have any close personal contacts you are not likely to get any assistaance as disclosing the info usually isn't permitted. Might be worth a shot though.

Sorry guys I was just going with what I had available at the time, I was told to post it here as well as the Wanted section, and yes the negative was reversed so it's fixed now left hand drive. No contacts in the law, unless I get pulled over lol!

Hope this helps the search:

Dear Mister Muzzi,
According to our documentation files, the chassis number AR 355428 originally corresponds to an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint (101.12), manufactured on the 10th December 1962 and sold on the 26th March 1963 in Rome, Italy.
The body colour is Alfa red.
Yours, Sincerely,
Marco Fazio
