This beautiful Alfa Romeo GTV was recently purchased from a long time owner of 40 years who purchased the car in 1978 for $18,000. He was an active member of the Canadian Alfa Romeo Club and kept meticulous records and receipts during his many years of ownership. A complete, rotisserie restoration was completed in 2003, again with extensive photographic and written documentation. Drives as great as it looks!
Originally delivered from the factory to Sault Ste Marie, Ontario, Canada in November of 1968, thus the European market appearance. The car was purchased by the prior owner in 1978, who kept it in his loving possession for 40 years.
In 2002, the car was stripped bare and given a rotisserie restoration, including an engine rebuild. Extensive records and pictures of the restoration come with the sale. For that matter, extensive records of his 40 year history with the car come with the sale, including the 1978 Bill of Sale.
I drove the car from Charlotte to Raleigh, NC after purchase with no problem at all. It cruises down the highway in 5th gear without the least complaint. Great brakes and impressive handling make this car a real pleasure to drive.
In the last 5 months, we've replaced the door and trunk seals, driver's door hinges, fuel pump, fuel hoses, and interior carpet. We've also added an original 1969 Blaupunkt radio which was rebuilt by Classentials.
