1977 Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV
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 USA 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.
She only had one owner in Holland for 36 years who was a famous politician and nobleman and two more once in the UK
Registered in the Uk a few years ago she has been maintained to a high standard and an expensive electric Webasto elec sunroof fitted.
The condition is amongst the best I have seen with a lovely combination of Periwinkle Blue with Burgundy leather sport seats and Campagnola alloy wheels shod with whitewall tyres.
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 expenditure to recommission the car totalling around €12,000 around 2013.
Supplied fully inspected and serviced with a 12 month warranty.
