Ed DeMayo’s gorgeous Alfa began life as a 1967 GTV, then morphed into a GTA look-alike during restoration. We love it!
Can’t get enough of Ed DeMayo’s GTA look-alike.
If FANTAGTA means “fantasy GTA,” this is a nice fantasy to have.
Ed DeMayo’s white 1962 Spider has a 1750 engine with Dellortos and a 5-speed. He writes: “My wife’s favorite mods are seat heaters, temp/air controls mounted under the dash and a factory hard top.” Ed is also restoring a ’62 Giulietta Sprint Coupe.
Aaron Wyeth, of Brisbane, Australia, has a highly modified Alfa 90. While we don’t have pictures of his 90, he did send this of his “project car.” It’s a 1966 GTV with 1750 engine and later dash. Aaron says it wasn’t registered until late 1968. “Guy I got it from has known the car for 25 years,” writes Aaron, “and it has always been that way. Plus have registration documents back to 1980 with current 1750 engine number.” Making the story even more interesting, the car was stored under a house for 10 years. Does that make this a basement find, instead of a barn find? No matter, this car is a winner.
David Raab, from Malvern, Pennsylvania, sent this photo of his 1966 GTV. All I can say is Wow!
Jesse DaSilva’s 1987 Spider Quadrifoglio may look stock, but it’s not. When Jesse tells us what he’s changed, we’ll update you.
Mike Charlsson emailed this from Switzerland: “Because I finally got my Giulia Nuova Super 1300 on the street this summer, I think it’s time to join .. and while the car may look like it did when leaving the factory in 1977, I have to admit that some parts are ‘non-originale.'”
The blue of Mike’s car looks different here than in the other photo. It’s the same car in different light. No matter, we like both blues.
Domenico Dadino, from Blackpool in the U.K. owns this Spider, which gets it fuel through a pair of Dellorto 45s.
Domenico’s Giulia started life as a Giulia Super Nuova. It has a 2L motor with 10.5mm cams, bigger bore Alfaholics exhaust,and lowered suspension. The color is Rosso Maranello Metalizato, from a modern Alfa Giulietta. It looks great!
This is a restoration project being done by Terry Rushbrook.
Terry Rushbrook owns this sleek silver Giulia Spider Veloce.
Larry Jones, of San Francisco and Viet Nam (No kidding!), sold his super green Super a while ago. It’s still Super in our eyes.
Another view of Larry’s Giulia Super. It has a 1750 with Weber 45s and a GTA clutch.
Larry’s other two other Supers.
This is a TZ Larry used to own. We thought it only fitting to end this gallery with a real TZ after beginning it with the Jerry Quinlisk art.
