VIN: AR 1532263*
Engine block number: AR 06224*048772*

Autodelta, Alfa Romeo's competition arm, prepared the GTAm from stock GTVs for the European Touring Car Championships. In 1970, the GTAms won six of nine races, and the Dutch driver Toine Hezemans secured the European Driver's Championship. These cars were raced successfully in the early 1970's.

There is controversy regarding the "Am" in GTAm. Some state that "America" is an interpretation; the other reading is "Alleggerita maggiorata" [meaning lightweight modified (made bigger) in Italian], the later probably being correct. The GTAms were lighter than their sister GTVs as the bonnet and trunk lids were fiberglass as well as the doors and fenders.

Only some 44 original GTAms are known to have been produced by Auto Delta. In good condition they are worth over $120,000.00

"Ciao Bella" the name given to this car was featured in the September 2008 issue of Alfa Owner Magazine. An article written by me on the history of my Alfa (AR 1532263*) in the "Our Alfas" column. It commemorates the work done by Al Leake of PMA / Alfa Romero Restorations & the shop in Raleigh, NC (Apex Vintage Racing) on completing the 3 year restoration of this GTV. Restoration completed early 2008, never raced since then. Entered in two car shows / Concours d'Elegance and won two Best in Class. Show or Race this as new concours finish classic.
