    I wouldnt mind a Giulia but at this point its hard to tell exactly what they have. I really wish I could be there myself to see all the cars in person.

          Either of those would be sweet. I'm not finding any GTVs in those pics - did you guys find them?

          The list shows
          '66 2-door
          66 GTV
          68 GTV (?) If so, that's rare. They didn't sell any 68s here.
          69 2-door
          71 2-door
          Maybe a 72 Berlina?
          73 2-door
          73 GTV (why don't they know they're both GTVs?)
          And four '74 "2-doors"
          By 75, those will all be Alfettas.

          Does the '66 jive with these numbers? The pages they posted don't go past 72.

          EDIT - if it's 611600 it looks like it lands in 1965 as a Sprint GT. That implies it's a type 10502.

            i agree with you. i don't see a single gtv either. i thought there was one next to the silver pickup cab, but from another angle, its a gulietta.

            the ad also says there are 200 cars. i didn't add up the list, but it probably only contains 130 or so?

              I think the white one in the far lower right is a GTV. See the rounded roof and curving fender crease, wipers.

              Unless they're stuffed into the weeds against the fence, it could be there are two locations (looks like two different shop buildings) or they're more valuable and inside somewhere. The nicest spiders are inside. All those GTVs have to be somewhere. Someone just didn't take any pics?

                I think there are two different shops / buildings involved. There could be more cars somewhere else.

                Look at an aerial on Google maps - All those pics and that whole list wouldn't fit at the auction address. That white building has a lot of space inside - might be more cars than what shows in the pics. There's empty space and a semi trailer in the pics - it's an industrial area with a forest next to it.Then there's a brown building in the auction pics. Turquoise blue garage end. Part of it looks like a liquor store now on Google street view.

                  google map from above looks like theres about 40 cars in that lot and thats where most of the outdoor pics look to be. I added up the number of cars on that list and it was around 190, so sure lets call it 200.

                  They do list a White 66 GTV, so that might be it

                    I found old business listings for Fast Company, owned by Peter D'Amico. Had been there for over 35 years.

                    Some mentions of him in Ferrari Chat threads...

                    If you have to resort to professional mechanical help, look up Peter D'Amico in Vineland. He always kept my Alfas running perfectly when I was living in the Atlantic City area. I could call him up, describe the sounds the car was making, and he'd tell me what was wrong with it, and how to get it running well enough to drive to the shop. Never needed a flatbed.



                    I was tossing around the purchase of an Alfa Spider. I did, and I actually took it to Peter D'Amico in Vineland, who was mentioned in the thread.

                    Peter is a great guy, and very enthusiastic about Alfas. Besides working on the cars, he recently decided to design fiberglass reproductions of bodies. He has molded a Duetto Spider, and has created fiberglass Duetto bodies from the mold. It's 1000 pounds lighter, and can be used with the mechanics of any modern Alfa.

                    After telling me about the Duetto, he told me that he was thinking about molding a 33 Stradale body. He showed me pictures of the car (which I had never seen before), and I fell in love with it.


                    .

                      I wonder what happened with the fiberglass molds of the Duetto. Maybe thats what the tube chassis car was for. A super-lightweight Duetto

                        i think the wheel base looks too long and the engine sits too far back for that. could be wrong though.

                              Ok. I looked everything over really well. Unfortunately, i have to say every alfa here older than say 1975 is completely rusted to shit and back. The only exception is that red duetto body with the fresh paint job. The sprints/gulias are all shit. There are the two coupes and the cabby body. There is only one gtv. The white one late fan surmised. I think that is probably the rustiest car of the lot.

                                There are 3 lancias here. The black one with the gold stripe is a zagato. There is a really nice solid red scorpion. Very restorable. If there was one car here i would buy it is definately this one.
