For sale – 1977 Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV LHD – 77,000 miles – SOLD
The Alfa Junior Coupe range styled by Bertone caused a real stir when it was introduced in 1963, with it’s stunning looks and range of twin cam power plants it was soon clear that they drove beautifully and road tests of the day extolled their virtues.
Powerful lovely sounding engines, slick five speed gearboxes and nimble well balanced handling meant that they drove better than most of their contemporaries including competitors from Stuttgart and Modena!
The production run carried on until 1977 when Alfa eventually bowed to the trend of wedge shaped cars and introduced the Alfetta Coupe.
This beautiful example was among the last being registered new in Holland in 1977 and originally destined for the States along with a few hundred others instead they remained in Europe sold by the Dealer network in Germany and Holland.
There is a confirmatory letter from Alfa Classic in Milan of the spec and build in the car file.
We were informed from the seller that it has had only one owner in Holland and we are waiting for verification shortly.
The condition is amongst the best I have seen with a lovely combination of Metallic Blue with Burgundy leather sport seats and Campagnola alloy wheels shod with brand new Pirelli tyres.
The speedometer is in Mph and shows only 77,000 mls which again we are told is the correct mileage.
The Gtv drives so well with an incredible rorty bellow from the carbs and twin cam chatter, the gearbox is smooth with absolutely no synchro issues providing the driver with a delicately balanced driving experience.
I have driven this car for over 200 miles and cannot fault the mechanical or bodywork condition with recent expenditure to recommission the car totalling around €12,000.
There aren’t many exceptional examples remaining especially ones that have not been totally restored so this one is amongst the best and will be a fantastic financial investment.
