I have today purchased a 1969 1750 roundtail Spider. Picture attached.
Needless to say I am ecstatic. Unfortunately, I do not have the car with me yet. It has been in storage for some time and it is being looked over for me.
I am trying to find out some more history on the car. According to Alfa's records, the car was originally sky blue and was supplied to the UK in the first half of 1969. I have been able to find out that the car was painted its present avorio (ivory) colour in about 1989/90 from a hand written note in the file given to me with the car today.
The file shows that the car had registration number AAF 750 J in the UK and was owned in the early 1980s by a Mr. Barbagallo. Later it was owned by Giancarlo Cossu and then by Gareth and Lesley Robinson. The latter two owners entered the car in AROC's concours competitions for a number of years.
I would be interested in hearing from any previous owners and anyone who could shed some light on the first 10 years of the car's life in the UK.
Thanks and best regards from a very excited new old Alfa owner.
