Lol, yes, the "stock" GTV6Just terrific photos, Rob. I could just stare and stare at them. Hey, those Euro bumpers sure look good on the stock GTV 6 there! This has got to be the ultimate "While I'm in there, I might as well..." project!
We love the subs! ‘Cuz they are good to us. The Quiznos subs. They are tasty, they are crunchy, they are warm because they toast them. They got a pepper bar!
Ooooh , claddless plastic alfetta body sure is pretty. Go whole hog and do the front valance and flush turn signals as well? 😊.Chris, sent you a message
Wrapping up the hood and such: moving blanket for safety during the hood mounting.
Meatball finally received a deserved set of NOS yellow Cibie CSR lamps to replace the clear ones. I paired them with a set of yellow Cibie driving beam lamps for the high beams. I think it looks pretty good with the red/yellow. And, as was visible above but not called out, I swapped on a set of beautiful 16" 5x98 Tecnomagnesio Sport wheels from an old friend. I have a set of 15" OZ awaiting tires that may be a bit more comfortable on the street, but the 16" look great. I'm working on a set of proper center caps for these 16" Tecnos, maybe with a custom logo.
At this point I have several hundred miles on the rebuild and update and the first oil change suggests things are going nicely. The car is driving beautifully, and the engine is noticeably smoother and torquier than before, which I like. Once I have a comfortable amount of use on the engine, I plan to put the car on a dyno and see how things turned out. The 24V stablemate (pictured) is supposed to go to the dyno also.
On a car like this, the project is never really finished. The plan for now is to keep it tucked in for winter, then to drive it as often as I can this spring, wrap up the power steering lines and install, and consider a road trip for the nicer weather part of 2021.
No modifications need as mentioned earlier. The original smaller lamp cut outs are still in the body hidden behind those ginormous gtv6 tail lamps.

Alfetta housing and lens should just plop right in..
Most recent little project I did on the car was to finish the taillights. I modified GTV6 housings to fit Alfetta lenses to retain dual brake light bulbs. Stainless screws and black painted surrounds finished off the look. I really like the all-red look.
