When I restored my first 1750GTV nearly 20 years ago I used to look at the opening pages of the original Alfa parts "bodywork" book and see this beautiful line drawing of a complete new bodyshell which you could order - part number 188.8.131.52.01 and think "if only..."
Now with the availability of very high quality repair panels, sill sections and floors it is possible to restore stripped bodyshells to a very high standard.
In doing this, we have established a new way of restoring these fabulous cars previously only available to English classic car owners who could buy brand new Heritage bodyshells and rebuild their cars that way. It means that you can buy, for example, a very rusty but complete 1750GTV (as a donor car) and one of our bodyshells and then prepare and paint the bodyshell in the colour of your choice. Then slowly, as time and funds allow, remove parts from the donor car, renovate or replace them and fit them to the new shell.
There are a number of advantages to this method of restoration -
Some information about the bodyshells -
The shells will require all final shaping and filling prior to priming and paint because this means what you come to view is just metal without any filler hiding anything.
Prices start at £9,500 and we currently have the following shells in stock ready to restore: 1965 Sprint GT, 1967 Stepfront GT Junior, 1971 1750 GTV, 1972 2000 GTV. There is a usual lead of time of 4 months to have a prepared shell ready for you and we only have right hand drive UK cars available at this time.
Our first shell which we supplied back in late 2007 & spawned the idea was a 1750 Spider (1968). This was supplied in exactly the same way (restored by the same restorer) as a bare shell to customer Max Haycocks who subsequently had the car painted by MGS Coachworks and reassembled by Titus Rowlandson in Suffolk to concours standard and it went on to feature on the cover of July 2008 Classic & Sportscar.
