Certificate of Origin Alfa Romeo GTV6


Alfa Romeo Certificate of Origin

Alfa Romeo offers a service where they can send you a Certificate of Origin for your car. The Alfa Romeo Certificate of Origin documents when your vehicle was made and other information. Some may consider it a neat novelty to have, but there is also a practical side where it can help during a restoration and may even add value when selling your car.  

Alfa Romeo offers this service for all their vehicles. However, the information varies depending on the model, year of manufacture, and sales market. For my 1982 GTV6, production date, interior, and exterior colors. An engine number confirmation was available if you provided them with the number stamped on your block. Some cars may have more or less information.

Alfa GTV6 Engine Number

To get a certificate, you'll need your chassis number. Note, this is not the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). On a GTV6, the chassis number is stamped on the firewall under the wiper motor. 

The Alfa Romeo GTV6 Chassis Number or Body Number location is shown in the image below. The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is the plate seen through the windshield.

Alfa GTV6 Chassis Numbers

Once you have the Chassis Number, contact Alfa Romeo, they will reply with what information is available and give you the cost of the service. At the moment, Alfa Romeo charges 120€ for the service. The breakdown is below (note the tax. Ouch!).

  • Certificato di Origine ALFA ROMEO - 98.36€
  • Tax - 21.64 €

Here's their direct email address.


The Certificate of Origin is printed on fancy, high-quality paper, and is sent only in the Italian language. A preview will be emailed in English.

Below is the email I was sent:
