15k: Seller Submission: 1974 Alfa Romeo GTV

The Alfa Romeo GTV (105 series) is a regular feature on this website because it offers exclusivity and vintage driving experience that is almost unmatched in the new econobox MSRP price range.  The 1971-76 GTV, with its iconic twin headlights, is the design work of Giorgetto Giugiaro of the Bertone and features curves that belong in a museum...or my garage.  Find this 1974 Alfa Romeo GTV offered for $18,000 in Athens, GA via craigslist.  Seller submission from Bob.  


This GTV presents as less of a museum piece and more of a nice daily driver, which is great because such fine pieces of engineering should be driven instead of stored behind velvet ropes.  Cosmetically this GTV features an earlier grill (from the 1750 GTV), but the original is included -- saving salvageable stock parts when you make a modification are always a good idea for future vehicle value.


Under the hood is a 2.0 liter all-alloy inline 4 that would have been originally equipped with SPICA fuel injection and rated for 130 horsepower, but it is now fed via a set of weber carbs with velocity stacks and exhaust flows through a header. The combined effect should add a few more ponies and maybe some torque.


Of course this GTV is sold with a clutch pedal because the GTV was never available with anything other than a 5-speed manual starting in 1963 and continuing until it went out of production in 1977.

  1. Slight correction, there actually was an automatic Bertone GTV . Fortunately, it was never sold in North America.

  2. I need this. I think I shall put a kidney up for sale on some shady black market website in China. That might cover this lovely little machine. Besides, who cares about two kidneys when you're flashing down some winding country road in a gtv?

  4. I have been looking at a Giulia Super that was featured on DT some time ago. It is my first hands on with an Alfa, and to say I'm hooked is an understatement. There doesn't really seem to be a downside to these cars except the eventual rot. In my dreams I would both a Super and a GTV.
