1960’s Sprint Speciale photographs in Germany

John sent me this note along with these great scans of period slides:

“These were taken by my father, John E. Grabowski, during his first tour of duty in Germany as a young officer in the U.S. Army. Timeframe would have been somewhere between 1965 and 1968 I believe. He was stationed in Manheim at the time. I scanned these from my late father’s old color slides. The only thing I know is that the Alfa belonged to a friend of my father’s, and that one of my father’s hobbies was photography (and he always loved sports cars).”

Plate reads T-62801. Any readers recognize this car? There were not very many silver ones made either…

Thanks John!

If anyone else has period images of 750/101 Alfa’s and don’t mind sharing, I’d love to hear from you and do a post.

    • I haven’t seen much period SS since I started this. Big shout-out to John for stepping up with these pictures.

      I can’t wait for the next time this happens!


  1. you guys had me scared there for a moment with the talbot mirror placement on the passenger side fender, until i realized the slides as shown must be wrong way around!…only the rear view picture is correct, with the steering wheel on the left side as opposed to all the others with the wheel on the right..?
