Car description

This 1974 Alfa Romeo GTV benefits from a recent mechanical refurbishment and is powered by a SPICA-injected 2.0-liter inline-four paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Purchased by my brother in the early 1990s, the car was disassembled by him and refinished in its original shade of LeMans Blue (Azzuro Lemans) in 1997. I bought the car from him it its unfinished state around 2009, and finally began to put it back together last year. The car has always been stored inside since the restoration began. Work within the last year included a tune-up, removal and cleaning of the fuel tank, installation of a new water pump, injection pump belt, and rebuilt thermostatic actuator. Once the car was running, I rebuilt the brakes, added new carpet, installed a new driveshaft support bearing, and touched up the paint. This GTV is sold with receipts from recent servicing and a clean California title in my name. The car is sorted and completed several long drives in the last few months.

My brother bought this car in Southern California in the early 1990's and he used it as his daily driver for several years. In the mid-1990s, my brother began performing a restoration that included metal repair of the spare tire well and floorboards. A bare metal glass out repaint in LeMans Blue was completed in 1997, but work stalled after this and the car remained in a disassembled state until 2016.

Within the past 11 months, the car was reassembled and new rubber seals for the doors and rear glass were added. Front and rear bumpers no longer wear their original over-riders, and the side indicators have been filled. The 14” wheels wear older Pirelli P6 tires which should be replaced. The SPICA-injected 2.0-liter twin-cam inline-four benefited from a tune-up, rebuilt thermostatic-actuator, and replacement injection pump belt at Santo’s Italian Car Service in Northridge, California in April 2017. Earlier work performed in 2016 at Santo’s included a $2k overhaul of the fuel system, including removal and cleaning of the fuel tank. Following the mechanical sorting, I rebuilt the brake calipers and added new hoses, pads, front rotors, and flushed the brake system. The driveshaft is supported with a new hanger bearing, and a new guibo was fitted between it and the transmission. The battery is new. The car starts easily, does not blow smoke and the transmission is excellent, with none of the usual grinding that is typical for these cars.

I have decided that I prefer my Porsches over the Alfa, and have too many vehicles so this one must go. This car is rust free, and the hard work has been done. You can drive this car now and continue to improve it over time. The paint is 20 years old but looks excellent. There is some wear from storage, which has been touched up. Mileage is currently 82,xxx and the car is driven occasionally so this may increase. In person inspection welcome and I am happy to take the car for a PPI locally. $1000 non-refundable deposit due within 24 hours of auction closing, with balance due in 7 days. Please perform all inspections and have funds available prior to auction closing.
