Description:

ALFA ROMEO GTAm HISTORIC RACE CAR EVOCATION PROJECT

The 1750 GT Am was created and developed by Autodelta, the Settimo Milanese workshop that in the 1960s became Alfa Romeo's official motor racing department.

Fierce competition and an increasingly crowded sub-2000 cc Touring class at the start of the 1970s prompted Alfa Romeo to further upgrade the design of the Giulia GTA. The starting point was the 1750 USA version of the 1750 GT Veloce.

 
Only 100 units of the Giulia 1750 GT Veloce USA needed to be produced for Group 2 homologation, but around 40 units of the racing version GT Am were developed by Autodelta between 1970 and 1971.

With a lightened, stripped-out interior, some with lightweight doors, plus the wide wing extensions covering massive alloy wheels, the GTAm looked more aggressive than its svelte GTA predecessor. Plus the GTAm was considerably more powerful than the GTA, unleashing around 195 bhp and up to 220 bhp at 7200 rpm.

 

Sourcing an original GTAm race car is approaching ‘unobtainium’. Obviously rare, they are also astronomically expensive should one ever find its way onto the market. So the trend for competitors who are seduced by the attraction of one of these iconic Alfa Romeo racers is to build one for themselves.

On offer here is a ‘kit’ of parts that will enable the dream to come alive!

·         The donor car as described (with NOVA form)

·         GTAm body kit. (Wide wing kit)

·         Restoration panels (Classic Alfa supplied new floor and sill panels)

·         Race wheels (Period Speedline wheels)

·         Donor engine options: 1750cc or 2000cc

The donor car is a 1750 clone that has had a poor restoration in its South African homeland and then suffered damage in transit to the U.K. Therefore a perfect candidate to be stripped down and rebuilt as a GTAm-type historic race car, eligible for the HRDC ‘Classic Alfa Challenge’.

Engine is damaged so will include a donor engine.

The project is available for viewing in Norwich.

Please call Julius Thurgood for further details.
