Hello Kriton,

Welcome!

Congratulation, thats a wonderful car.

As far as color goes, years ago I had a maroon Alfa GTV and it was just beautiful.

I remember sweeing photos of Bill Wonders car, GT103 (I think) It was maroon and very nice looking.

Just my thoughts, I think any color would look good on that beauty!

**************

I found this photo


Its a MkIII, I wonder if its the same maroon, I bet Ronnie knows.

Kriton:

I found a letter from Ronnie Spain and a classified ad for 1059 in my dad's estate papers. Send me a message through this forum with an email if you would like me to send you photos of these.

Have fun with 1059- I know my dad sure did!

My two cents worth - leave it in its current colour, it looked very classy in the recent magazine article here in the UK.

Regards,
