I was checking links, trying to see where some projects I used to keep up on were and took a look at Will’s Sprint rebuild on FB. It hasn’t had anything posted in a while – unless updates have been made elsewhere. Something caught my eye when I was checking out his pictures. His car is a 10102 series, with a 1315*01XXXX engine, and a Mailand plate with 750B on it. Anyone know what’s up with this? Only 10105’s are supposed to have this series engine. I did a post a while back about trade agreement final assemblies in France, Mexico and Germany at one point but can’t seem to find it. Anyone know what the arrangement was between Alfa and Mailand?
This is the build plate set is from Will’s Sprint. It is original, and it is confusing!
Maybe it was a surplus build plate and they wanted to use them up? Maybe they had a certification of some sort for the 750B and it made sense to keep the designation?
And the regular build plate, in proper font stamping with the right screws.
Anyone have any insight?
