5k: Grand Turismo Verycheapo: 1972 Alfa Romeo GTV 2000

The Alfa Romeo GTV needs little introduction other than to remind people that it is an affordable and rare piece of Italian motor-driven art.  The quad-headlight GTV 2000 model (tipo 105.21) is by far the most recognizable and will get you front/center parking at any valet lot for less than the price of a new Honda Fit...or in this case a used Yugo.  Find this 1972 Alfa Romeo GTV 2000 for sale near Washington, DC for $5,000 via craigslist.

The 2.0 liter all-alloy dual-overhead cam inline-4 should be good for 130 horsepower and enough to outrun a UPS truck, but in this one's case it wasn't fast enough to avoid being sideswiped by a truck while in storage.  Oddly enough the seller only includes closeup of the outside, but three dark pictures of the underside and one picture of the Alfa parked behind a Cadillac SUV. Still...for $5k, you can't expect much.

  1. I will take this one over the Feature car

  2. I live about three blocks from the service station this is sitting at.


  3. great pictures of the rockers

  4. Still looking for the Cadillac... (that's a GMC Yukon, the 'Sclade's little bro).

  5. If I weren't broke right now I would buy this in a heartbeat (good thing I like my kids so much, 'cause, damn, they're expensive). Since I don't have a garage currently, a blemished car like this is perfect. Sigh... I have wanted one of these for 20 years. This is a heart-breaker.
