New list of GTAm Chassisnumbers as per 02/02/2014

Hello members,

I thought it was time to make a new compilation of the information that we have gathered so far (02-02-2014). Thank you for all the members that contributed to this thread/database.

Definition:
But first an addition to definition of what a GTAm is.
As already said the GTAm was an Alfa Romeo 1750 GTV USA (105.51) that had Spica fuelinjection. It had two brake boosters and standing pedals. These cars were converted by Autodelta to GTAm specification. The homologation papers specify what changes could be made. Autodelta had a complete list of options to convert the car into a GTAm.
Along with the type 1750 GTV USA (105.51) some type 1750 GTV EU (105.44) have also been converted (standing and hanging pedals). The same goes for some type 2000 GTV’s (105.21) with hanging pedals.
Besides that, UlrichGTA told me that in Germany some GT 1300 Juniors (105.30) have been converted to GTAm because the GT 1300 Junior was lighter.
Difficulty with the GTAm is, that it never had a unique type- and chassisnumber. This is unlike the type GTA (105.32 LHD and 105.34 RHD) and type GTA 1300 Junior (105.59).

Variants:
There are variants within the different types:
- new cars from the production line converted to GTAm spec's by Autodelta SpA as Autodelta works cars
- new cars from the production line converted to GTAm spec's by Autodelta SpA as Autodelta customer cars
- existing cars converted to GTAm spec's by Autodelta SpA as Autodelta customer cars
- new or existing cars converted to GTAm spec's by other tuners/teams with a combination of Autodelta, Angelini, Balduzzi, Facetti and other parts like the `Balduzzi` cars (Tony Adriaensens mentions this in his book)
- new or existing (replacement) bodyshells with or without a chassisnumber that were equipped with Autodelta, Angelini, Balduzzi and other parts (for example from wrecked cars)
- other variants on this theme in various stages of tune

There is a list of Autodelta options for your 1750/2000 GTAm called "GTAm modifications & options for GTAm". Source of this info is the 1st edition of “Alleggerita” by Tony Adriaensens. In the 2nd edition of “Alleggerita” by Adriaensens, Dasse & Übelher, you will find a list and photographs of the parts that are specific to the GTAm (als well as to the Giulia Sprint GTA, GTA-SA and GTA 1300 Junior). This 2nd edition is a “must” for any GTA, GTA 1300 Junior, GTA-SA and 1750/2000 GTAm fan!

The options according to the 1st edition of “Alleggerita”:

Aluminium or steel or plastic doors and boot lid
Plastic hood and dashboard
Plexiglass door glass – descending window or sliding window
Lightweight laminated Glaverbel windshield and rear window
Rear window also available in Plexiglass

Special close ratio gearboxes – on demand Colotti T 118 gearbox
ZF Autolock differential
Lightweight bell housing, gears and gear lever
Special lightweight racing or heavy duty rallye assembly clutch
Sebring front exhaust pipe
100 litre fuel tank with racing cab

Dinoplex electric ignition
Ventilated ATE front and rear discs with aluminium calipers
13” Campagnolo magnesium wheels (from 7Lx13” to 10Lx13”) also 7Lx15” was available
Plastic front and rear fender flares to use with 13” wheels

On special demand:
16 valve, single ignition cylinder heads approx. 240 hp
T64 braking torque differential

I doubt whether this list is fully complete.
What about a radiator (copper) expansion tank?
Special Autodelta works engines?
16 valve exhaust manifold?

I have to check the 2nd edition of “Alleggerita” for the list with options.

And what about other tuners such as Angelini with it's 2000cc 16 valve cylinderhead with Weber carburettors?
Further specifications can be found in the homologation papers.

A lot of GTAm's will have been updated during and after their racing life, engines and gearboxes were swapped, they have been restored, etc ..... And some of these cars had great palmares while others were less fortunate.

Copies:
Besides that, there are a lot of copies with various stages of tune with less or more original GTAm parts. Have a look around on alfabb and you will see a lot of GTV's being changed into GTAm copies. Some of them are very nice and well built.

Chassisnumbers:
Here is a list with with chassisnumbers and the sources of the information we have collected sofar. The latest list dates from 30-12-2013. This list is an updated and extended version of the earlier lists published here. Sources for this list are Maurizio Tabucchi (MT) in his book “Alfa Romeo GTA”, Adriaensens in his 1st edition of the book ”Alleggerita”, Adriaensens, Dasse & Übelher (A,D&Ü) in their 2nd edition of the book “Alleggerita”, members of this forum and my own research. The so called “bad scan” that is mentioned was a paper with errors that caused some misunderstandings concerning chassisnumbers.

# 1538476, not possible because chassisnumber is too high (?!): 1538476 should probably read 1358476 (source: Adriaensens)

Please remember that this list is far from complete when the history of the individual chassis is concerned. There simpy isn't enough room to add all that is known.
Please note that Adriaensens, Dasse & Übelher have added a lot of history to the individual chassisnumbers in the 2nd edition of "Alleggerita". More is to come, because A, D & Ü did not add history that could not be verified. For example #1530841 is one of the chassisnumbers with a lot of info to be added.

Furthermore, Tom Tanner made a list of colours belonging to the different chassisnumbers.

Please feel free to correct and add information to this list.
