Very pretty - please post the color name. It looks to me like medium blue? I bet it was a deal compared to a 356...

The exterior is Medium Blue (Alfa factory code AR323) with a Rosso Amaranto nose (AR509). There is a green pinstripe bisecting the nose and body. The interior is burgundy.

Yep, bit less than the 356.

Congratulations on the Alfa and nice 356. That isn't your orange F-Type in the background is it?

Congrats, that's a nice looking car, and very similar to the color combo I've been considering for mine. Please do post up some more broad view images when you have a chance. Were the first photos you posted from Vintage Customs? Looks kind of like their shop.

Good eye! The Jag is for going fast. Fun car. Briefly considered if that R-type engine would fit in the GTV. ;)
You have great taste.

Also, I just realized, you scored this GTV front BaT, didn't you?

(I write for BaT)

Trich - it is Vintage Customs -- I drove the car for a week or so, and sent it down there to get completely sorted and few special touches I wanted.

Doraiba - Yep, this is the car from BAT. It was mostly well represented, but I threw a quick 12 grand in it to get it where it needed to be. Have a bit more to do, but should be 100% in the next few months.

Requested pics...

New springs on the way to dial in the front ride height.

Btw, what is the trick to get crisp pictures uploaded? The are fine locally and I resampled them to be smaller before upload. Any particular best practices camera settings?

Lovely looking car! It looks to have an unusual arrangement for the sun blinds in the windscreen (windshield in US?), some kind of mono blind?

Hi Swallow -

The car has a "wink" mirror. It offers a somewhat panoramic view/blind-spot free replacement for the stock mirror. As an added bonus, it does block some sunlight similar to the visors.

Hey, just saw your car prominently featured in this recent Vintage Customs video. Pretty cool.
