Hey Javito!

I see you already have fitted the wide fenders! Looking good!!:D

I'll have to go over there to make a visit! ;)

Can you please clarify something?....Is your car an original factory GTAM that never had the flared fenders? or are you restoring a GTV to look like a GTAM?
!!!!!!!!!!!!!
All genuine original GTAms have flares and various other mods that actually MAKE them a GTAm.
It's a bit like asking somebody if their Ferrari 250GTO is a real one and the reply is "yes of course, they just never fitted the actual GTO body and parts at the factory".........
Not that I'm saying that this keen Alfisti is claiming such, but the answer to the question is obvious.............
Looks like a great project Javito. Enjoy.

1750GT is asking a very real question. Is this simply a Bertone coupe being built up to look like a GTAm or is there any real provenance.

Could the owner kindly let us know the serial number of the chassis or other specific facts.

For a start it looks like a 2000 car (note oil filter and tail lights - although some 1750s did have the larger tail lights, but surely no genuine GTAM's).

I am sure there are some 1750s and 2000s that were prepared by Autodelta and had nearly all the parts from the race catelogue bolted on that would give them claim to being a GTAM ... without every single mod, ie. flares. BUT there is apparently a list of chassis numbers of OFFICIAL GTAMs ...

David, how could such a question even need to be asked when the initial photos of the car clearly show a stock coupe?
Regardless of what the chassis number may be, if it doesn't already have the homologated flares, engine, suspension, brakes and other parts that a GTAm actually consists of, then it can't possibly be or have ever been one from the begining.
It's a bit like seeing a Ferrari '250GTO project' and asking if it's a genuine one that didn't actually get the correct body and mechanicals put onto it originally............
Javito is obviously having a geat time with a few friends building a replica of a car of his dreams and good luck and much enjoyment to him.
