Description

The successor to the much-loved 105-series coupes, Alfa's new GT debuted in 1974 and was based on the Alfetta platform, albeit with a shorter wheelbase and stylish new coupe bodywork. The distinctively modern hatchback styling had been developed by the talented Giorgetto Giugiaro's Ital Design studio, before being refined in-house by Alfa Romeo's own styling department. The new GT also had unique instrumentation split ahead of the driver and on top of the centre console, and seats that slid forward as the backs folded to improve access for rear seat passengers. The original 1.8-litre model was replaced with two new engines in 1976, namely the 1.6-litre and the 2-litre, and was rebadged as the GTV 2000 at the same time. The larger 1962cc engine used twin-choke carburettors and a 9:1 compression ratio to raise output to a very healthy 130 bhp, the top speed increasing to just on 200 km/h. Road testers sang the praises of the new GTV 2000, particularly the improvements to the gearbox, the precise steering and sharp handling. The model was a sales success, remaining in production until 1986. A well-maintained example offers the enthusiast a great deal of inexpensive driving and ownership pleasure today.

History

  • Desirable chrome-bumper Alfetta GTV
  • Body restoration, repainted in 2013
  • Full mechanical restoration
  • Just needs interior to finish
  • No Reserve
Alfa Romeo’s 105-GTV has long been a collector and enthusiast favourite, but its Giugario-designed replacement has been gaining much greater appreciation over the last couple of years. The original chrome-bumper models are the most sought-after, and our example here is being offered most of the way to completion. The body has been fully restored and was painted a distinctive Black Pearl metallic back in 2013. It remains in great condition today. This 1980 Alfa has also had a full mechanical restoration as well, and runs very sweetly. Sadly, its restorer passed before he could turn his attention to the interior, which is all there and complete, but needs a thorough rejuvenation. With most of the hard work done, plus that new interior, this will be a very nice ride. Previously on full Victorian registration, the Alfetta GTV is being sold unregistered and with No reserve.
 
Note: Shannons advise that all potential buyers research all vehicles before purchase to authenticate originality.
