I entered "The Duckett 105" in the Victorian Club Concours on the weekend, first ever concours experience.

It scored 93/100 and finished 3rd in some pretty hot company of fully restored cars.

I'll have to find out where I lost points and maybe try again in the future,  if I am able to fix the issues without affecting the originality of the car.

Saw the car in person (from behind the rope!) at Spettacolo yesterday, looked fantastic.

Paint & panel looked super!

Cheers,

Paul.

Thanks Paul, here it is on the hoist at Saturdays judging apart from the exhaust as it was when it left the factory

Thanks for those pics Alister, great to see the inside pic as it confirms 100% that the door opening handle should be the direction
that I was advised,  which is not the direction that 95% of the cars have it facing in 2019 (removed and put back incorrectly at some stage in the prior 45-50 years).

No problem, glad it helped.

One of the pieces that had gone AWOL from my car was the original handbook, service book and original purchase docs were there but not the correct handbook. It had a very nice reproduction made for the Alfa Club of Great Britain but I have been on the hunt for an original.

I recently acquired this less than perfect one, thanks to a Melbourne enthusiast, pages are great, cover a bit damaged but at least it is a correct Manual and correct published date too for my car (extra point for next years concours).

Maybe one day a kind sole will swap/trade/sell me a near mint one that they have no real need for.

Preservation over restoration is amazing when done so well.

On the handbook - nothing here? https://www.classentials.com/product-categorie/motoring-books/owner_workshop_manuals/

Yes it has done full circle and Rory and the team at CTS have the task of finding a suitable new owner and I will move on to the next project.

Saw if drop off the page, Wasnít sure if it was sold or pulled, so congratulations!

Itís a stand out car and has now set the bar for a 105 coupe through the stratosphere, price wise.

Cheers,

Paul.

Didnít quite get the asking price but very happy with the deal I got

I get that the 2000 GTV wasnít a ďspecial ď model but you just donít find them so
original and unaffected as this one...one out of the box and I enjoyed our4 years together and it  left my hands better than when I bought it which makes me pleased.

Good luck to the new owner maybe I will hear from them one day whoever they are.
