In the spiders, there were several changes in the steering column length over these few years. The 70+ cars had a deeper dish in the steering wheel, and a matching shorter column (including different plastics for the clamshell cover).

Did the GTV's make a similar change?

can anyone tell me if a steering box out of a 71 spider will fit a 69 gtv
I can supply one data point for the cross reference table: When I restored my '66 Sprint GT, I used a '76 spider as a parts donor. The Burman box & column out of the '76 replaced the ZF from the '66 with little difficulty. I think the '76 column was 1/16" or so shorter - I did have to position the aluminum steering column support as far forward as possible, and sand the edges of the shroud a bit to ensure clearance with the base of the steering wheel.

"While the 1973 Spiders retained the same box as 1972, the 73 Berlinas and GTVs got a u-jointed box (105.71.23.002.00)."

Does this mean the U-jointed box was only on 73+ berlinas and GTV's?

BTW do you have an alfa manual which talks about u-joint box specific procedures? this is a bit of a black hole in my alfa documentation.
