Bill Burns/Chris Brauer, finished 15th.

Some efforts were made 64-65 to establish local assembly for Alfas

1]"I'm sure I read in an Australian car magazine in the 80s that CKD Alfas were assembled at a Lightburn factory in South Australia in the early 60s - can anyone expand on the subject or explode it as myth? Lightburn made washing machines and a small fibreglass car similar to the Goggomobile called a Zeta"

2]"Yes Lightburn did assemble cars in South Oz in the early 60s, mainly 105 coupes. They sold a little too well so Alfa looked at setting up its own dealer network which bought the operation to an end. These cars are very rare."

3]"Lightburn & Co was South Australian company that manufactured a diverse range of products from wheelbarrows to washing machines and a car called the Zeta. The original Lightburn/Alfa Romeo deal planned for 50 rhd imports before the end of 1963. By the end of that year 10 lhd cars had been delivered for evaluation, 1300 Giulietta Ti, 1300 Romeo van, 1600 Giulia Spider,, 1600 Giulia Sprint (101 series), 3 1600 Giulia Ti,, 2600 Spider, 2600 Sprint, 2600 Berlina. A further consignment of 4 cars was received in 1964 as factory rhd cars. Market evaluation reduced the range to 4 models: 1600 Giulia Ti, 1600 GT Sprint, 2600 Berlina and 2600 Sprint. Prices were set high, $2750 for the 1600GT and $4250 for the 2600 Sprint. As a comparison a Porsche 1600 was available at $2565. Prices were reduced to a competitive level. Frustrating delays continued to cause problems and Lightburn's local CKD plans were never fulfilled. During the 63 & 64 Lightburn era a total of 65 cars were imported and by Aug 65 Lightburn's association with Alfa was formally ended.
Alec Mildren (Sydney) was granted an AR dealership appointment early in 64 and the rest is, as the classics say, history and we will forever be thankful for Alex Mildren."

This page - Link to "www.shannons.com.au" - continues the story of Alfa imports into Aus in 60s to 70s.

So this was an import, and there was no local assembly.
