    Would be a beautiful car, except for the awkward roof line and giant rear window.

    GTA Jr. Tribute Car
    Fabulous racer needs new home.
    This car is a serious racing weapon. Built and raced late 60’s early 70’s – SCCA C-Sedan. Recommissioned to run in SVRA and VDCA in 2004. Not raced since 2009. This step-nose coupe is Chassis number AR 6 16012, which makes it a Tipo 105.02 – a 1965 Giulia Sprint GT. At some point during its life as a racer GTAm style wide-body fenders were added.
    In the early 2000’s, after a long period of dormancy this car was acquired by Judge Parker Racing and sold to its current owner who set about recommissioning the car. SVRA log book included. This car is equipped with lightweight fiberglass fenders. Sadly, we have no documentation to confirm the history of this car, but all evidence points to the fact that this is a well developed old race car. I drove a few laps around VIR in this car and can attest to its solid feel and performance potential.
    No expense was sparred in the restoration of this racing machine.
    This car is in impressive condition. It is equipped with a very high reving 1300cc engine, it is one of the faster Vintage Group 1 cars you can find.
    Original specification:
    GTA style Montreal brake calipers. Vented (GTA/Montreal) rotors. Recently rebuilt.
    Autodelta sliding block Limited slip rear differential
    Autodelta rear axles.
    Autodelta – drop front spindles.
    Jaeger 10,000 RPM tachometer
    Original Alfa oil Temp and oil pressure gauges.
    Twin Facet fuel pumps
    Dual Weber DCOE 45’s
    Lightweight glass-fiber flared fenders
    Full roll cage
    Modern updates:
    1300 short stroke Nuova block. (Very high revving)
    Forged Pistons
    Ford T-5 close ratio five speed gearbox.
    Panasport racing wheels
    MSD Ignition system
    ATL Fuel cell
    Accusump oil system
    Sparco racing seat
    Please feel free to call the shop if you have any questions..

    I especially like the high dollar zip ties holding the rear brake line to the axle.

    Who'd thunk it that a tractor manufacturer will rise to make some of the most memorable super cars, and all that out of spite cuz his Purrari, sorry Ferrari, didn't work as "advertised"... Enter '60 Lamborghini 3352R 3 cyl 2.2L diesel tractor w mind blowing 35 HP (and is pulling good money for what it is)... :D

    ^^^^Duetto "Boat Tail" (this one ^^^^) is so much better looking than the later "Bob tail", squared off with the faux spoiler . . . but a larger trunk I guess. :rofl:rofl

    Absolutely!! :deal

    Alfa should've never changed that beautiful tail of Duetto. Otoh, I did like interior, especially instrument cluster/gear shift lever, and engines of later Alfa Spiders over Duetto's - will see if I got any pics in my scrapbook folder...

    So, ideally, Duetto body and rest of the interior/engine of later Spiders would've been a killer combo... :D

    Yeah, but at the time, the introduction of Kamm tails made everything else look old fashioned and obsolete. It's only in retrospect....

    And the best movie ever made, IMO. It has it all: story line, cast, cinematography, original (and fantastic) Simon & Garfunkel sound track. My former girlfriend voted Its a Wonderful Life but I maintain that The Graduate is the best.
