1974 Alfa Romeo GTV 2000
1974 ALFA ROMEO GTV 2000: --Silver with Black interior, Black carpeting, Restored, 1962cc inline 4-cylinder engine, 5-speed manual transmission, 52,000 miles, Long-term ownership, Air conditioning. Designed by the young Giorgetto Giugiaro for Bertone, the GTV was an instant classic from its introduction as the Giulia Sprint GT in 1963. The biggest revision came in 1969, with the elimination of the early "stepped" hood. It was then that the Giulia coupe became known as the GTV. Engine displacement grew over the years, the original carbureted 1570-cc DOHC four-cylinder (1600) was replaced with the 1962-cc (2000) motor in its final evolution, the GTV of 1973-1974. This engine was smoother, torquier and with greater power. This 2000 GTV with Spica fuel injection is superb throughout showing just 52,000 miles. It has enjoyed proper collector-enthusiast ownership for many years and always maintained regardless of use. This GTV is clean with excellent body fitment and no signs of any damage or major repairs. Though an older repaint, the Silver paint shows well as this GTV is a superb, solid example that runs strong and tight. It has also been fitted with air conditioning and a modern radio unit for convenience and touring pleasure. A truly iconic sports coupe, this Alfa is comfortable, yet dialed in for around-town cruising. The Alfa GTVâ€™s are well balanced cars with slick gearboxes and nimble/predictable handling, it is a wonderful vintage sports car in every respect. This said, it is extremely hard to find this desirable model in this condition. A recent road test attests to the car performing flawlessly in every way and it is ready for immediate use and enjoyment.
