While the Healey is drying, I started on this Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA racer. It is from the same race class as the red Super.

 

This is the car itself.

I am modifying the interior while de body is painted.

Some extra bars for the roll cage

As the original the interior is spayed in silver. New bucket seat and 4 point harnass, new box for the gear lever with a linkage to the original, fire extinguisher and brake lines.

The typical yellow colour looks good on the model

Works well with the silver interior

i remember working on one of those for a belgian guy ages ago

if i remember correctly it ran a V6 out of a 155

 

great little car

we replaced just about every body panel with custom fibre glass units

and then we added the after market wide body which had to be rivited on

 

what a pain that was

This one seems much easier!

 

This particular car used to be silver with a standard body. Quite a looker. The owner converted the Giulia after a crash. The front was kind of completely distroyed.

Last weekend we did a classic rally and victory was ours. Enclosed a photo of our car on a test. Slightly going sideways...
