Thanks till so far..
I have the intention to buy a 1962 veloce ( restauration object) and try to identify if all the correct parts are there ( besides the tachometer, oilsump, correct engine #). Other parts I have to look for?
What hasn't been mentioned, and is perhaps obvious, is the serial number. Send an email to Marco Fazio at Alfa Storico [email protected]
he will answer quickly with the information on record. There are many bits and pieces unique to real Veloces, a complete laundry list can no doubt be found somewhere on the web, try Christopher Boles' Veloce web site: Spider Veloce, Sprint Veloce and Sprint Speciale Registers
& click on "What Makes a Veloce?"
Some obvious pieces are a cast aluminum plenum, corresponding air snorkel, dipped cam cover, left side fender mount air cleaner & bracket, air inlet hole in the driver's side fender wall and the corresponding air inlet & sheet metal divider in the grill.
Some other small bits that should be there are the bracket for the fuel filter/regulator on the right side fender wall next to the coil (what Lionel was referring to no doubt.) On the driver's side, below the steering column on the frame rail is a bracket for a rubber bump-stop that the Veloce oil pan bumps against when the engine rocks sideways. On some earlier cars, the bump-stop was part of the Veloce motor mount on that side.
All of these things should be there unless the car was not an original Veloce or has been chopped/altered by some third party such as a dealer, race outfit or owner.
On the subject of fuel pumps, I own 3, 1965 (real) Veloces. One has a mechanical pump, one has an electric pump and the third (electric) I cannot vouch for the originality of the pump because the car was stripped when I bought it. One of my cars I have owned since 1970 (mechanical pump) and one I have records for back to '70 (electric.)
Curiously, on my "mechanical pump car," the fuel line has the provision for the electrical pump plumbing, right next to the electric pump mounting bracket. So, regarding fuel pumps, I think it is safe to say that at least the later 101 Veloces came with either. Of course, my cars could certainly have been changed in the 5 years prior, so who really knows. Either way, the elec. pump mounting bracket (right side frame rail in front of axle/coil spring) is there on all.
Hope this helps! I may be in Delft in September, love to see the car.
