Nice install by Autoplumb customer Greg from Iowa on his BBC. Greg used a -20AN Autoplumb 90deg Thermostat housing, 1.500” radiator adapter, 45deg and a Straight Full Flow Hose end and a short piece of hose.

95% of the photos you see here are original (though feel free to send!) but sometimes it’s nice to show something different. Today’s #tbt#AlfaRomeo comes courtesy of Antonio Russo.
Tony owned this car, a 1965 Alfa Giulia Sprint GT, in New York City for only about a year (“It kept having cold start problems, so I sold it.”) but took this photo in the winter of 1973 on 120th street between 1st and 2nd avenue (looking west towards 2nd) in what was then #Italian Harlem, a section of #EastHarlem that was home to Italian immigrants from the 1870s into the 1980s (there are still Italian businesses and residents there). It was the first New York neighborhood to be referred to as “Little Italy” and was once the home district of Fiorello LaGuardia.
Then, as now, you have to be brave to go without bumpers in #NYC, even if the 105-series coupes only had the daintiest of chrome strips to protect them from parking bumps in street parking - NYC destroys cars although aside from a busted corner light the Alfa was in good shape that day. Behind is typical early 70s road furniture - a ’65 Ford Falcon, a ’57 Olds, a trio of full-size ’66-70 Chevrolets, and a ’67 Buick Riviera in deep shadow passing by.
The Giugiaro-penned 105-series #Bertone Coupes, at first with the #Scalino front end (named for the recessed area atop the front fascia) debuted in the fall of 1963 and was probably still fairly uncommon in the U.S. even in 1965. Alfa’s U.S. sales were tiny.
Because they are the oldest and because all of these cars were rust-prone, these early Giulia coupes are the least frequently seen (and some of the most valuable) today, but they’d have been some of the most accessible in the early 1970s, superseded as they were by the later and faster 1750 and 2000 GTVs and now available as cheap used cars.
These early cars featured the aluminum 1,570-cc “1600” twin-cam that dated to 1962 mated to a five-speeder. The engine family, designed by Giuseppe Busso, dated to 1954. Light and fast, these early cars had twin Weber 40 DCOE carbs. A popular race car, Tony’s bumperless car was painted to look like a rally car at the time - definitely a standout among the big American sedans.
