Description

This car is considered one of the best prepared Alfas being vintage raced. The restoration and maintenence of this car has been done without compromise. It is very fast and has been raced as a 1600 Veloce since being restored in 1993 and has several class and overall race wins in its vintage race record. The car handles superbly and is very easy to drive fast and is also very relaxing for enduros. It currently has both SVRA and SCCA log books. It has run with SVRA, VARAC, VSCCA (special events) and SCCA Volvo Historics. This car has been properly maintained by "Glynn Motorsports". It has been nut-and-bolted between every event, resulting in only 2 DNF's in 9 years racing. The car has just undergone minor restoration, following a "incident" that left some minor damage on the passenger door and a major engine failure!

History

The car was originally raced by the owner and his brother in the 1960's and was repurchased and restored in 1992-93. this is one of the best known Alfa Spiders in the world, having been featured in Autoweek, two covers and three articles on its history in Alfa Owner, Vintage Motorsports, the Giuliettaletta, Grassroots Motorsports and SCCA Pit Talk.

This car was delivered to Jeff Buntin in Nashville, TN, as a 1300 normal with a 4-speed gearbox and a flat hood. It's another "transition" car, not unusual with Alfas of this era. Buntin traded the car to the owners brother for a MGA coupe in 1964. Rebuilt for street driving. Retired from the street with only 17K miles on it.

Prepared for SCCA racing in 1964-65 the car was raced throughout the Southeast in 1965-67. Several high places in FP then GP when reclassified by the SCCA. The car had a class win at Savannah in 1967. the car was also featured on the cover of "Daytona Paul Whiteman Trophy Races" entry form in 1968.

The car was sold in 1968 to Gary Thompson who raced it a few times then stored it in a barn in Tennessee until the current owner bought it back from Thompson in 1992.

The car was restored from bare metal in 1993 with only the floors having any rust, they were replaced with "Alan Hall's" steel panels. A major rollcage was fabricated. the finished product was altogether too nice for any racecar, it was and still is considered a beautiful car. The preperation was done properly, the engine was carefully prepared and a special GTA gearbox (with gun drilled shafts, ex tommy Mankin's SCCA champ) was aquired. ATE disc brakes were adapted to the front while maintaining standard drums on the rear.
