1989 Alfa Romeo 75 Turbo Evoluzione ex-JollyClub Group A racer

This car is old racer with the g'old days long gone. After bought it we discovered it had an interesting race history and some good rare Autodelta parts. We brought the car home and started a slow restoration. In 2011 we hope to have the car finished.

This blog will compile all the news about the restoration process of this 1987 ex-Jolly-Club Alfa Romeo 75 Turbo Evoluzione Group A racer.

More paint stripping

This weekend we tried to get all the interior paint stripped. Faliled, but at least work progressed. We also sourced another 1.6 short ratio gearbox and the matching engine, so no time to work on the car. Now, the idea is to have all the white paint removed, and then, cut the supports of the old rollcage, get the surfaces OK and start building the new Group A full rollcage. We found the correct model for the rollcage in the FIA papers. It was the most advanced structure, used in the latest Group A Evoluziones.

Fitting front wings

The original Evo steel front wings with riveted extensions will be replaced with one-piece fiberglass ones. These parts came from a Veloce kit and will require a bit or cut and shape in the lower back of the wheelarch to fit with the sideskirt. They are the best option for a racer: light, strong and can be completely removed by unscrewing a couple of bolts.

Evoluzione kit found

This car body was sourced from a normal 2000 carbed engined 75. The crashed original Evoluzione was a donor due to extensive damage. All Evo parts were transfered to this body, but the distintive Evo bodykit was not in great shape and never was fitted. That's the reason why this car appears in some pictures with no wheelarches, or with TS lookalike parts.
