1973 Alfa Romeo GTV 2000
s/n AR3022245, engine no.
Rosso Amaranto with Black Interior

Designed for Bertone by Giorgetto Giugiaro early in his long and illustrious career, the GTV was an immediate favorite from its introduction, initially as the Giulia Sprint GT in 1963. The restrained elegance and perfect proportions of these cars have aged beautifully and the cars survived for over 10 years with relatively light cosmetic changes but significant mechanical upgrades, including the eventual fitment of fuel injection and a 2.0 liter engine. The initial specification, which included 5-speed transmission and Alfa’s excellent alloy twin-cam inline-4, remained relatively unchanged.

The biggest change occurred in 1969 with the elimination of the early “stepped” hood and the change of the nomenclature to GTV. Under the hood was another story all together. Over the years, the engine displacement grew which altered the GTV’s character. The innovative high-revving, carbureted 1570 cc DOHC four (1600) was succeeded by a 1779 cc four (1750) with a SPICA mechanical fuel injection system in the GTV of 1969, and finally the displacement increase to 1962cc (2000) via an increase in bore in 1971.

This particular car has seen significant restorative work in recent years, with over $20,000 in receipts, including new interior, new windscreen, new weatherstripping, new trunk carpet, new air conditioning compressor and drier, rebuilt radiator, new clutch, and new ring gear. Additionally, the car was serviced by Glenn Oliveria, including oil change, new gear oil, serviced fuel injection pump including new filter, adjustment of the timing and fuel injection, and general tune up.

The car makes a strong cosmetic presentation. The paint is glossy and free from significant wear or aging, and is a high quality job for a car of this value bracket. The body is straight overall and displays good panel fit and operation. The chrome trim is in good shape, being sound throughout, although there are some surface scratches. The glass and lights are excellent throughout. The wheels are excellent, having been refinished during the restoration.

The interior is excellent, with fresh upholstery and carpets. The shift boot was also replaced and a dashboard cover fitted. The instruments and controls are in very good condition, and the wood is excellent other than one crack at the corner of the shifter aperture. The headliner is also excellent and the overall impression of the interior is very strong, other than some cosmetic wear on small trim items such as the dome lights and grab handles. The car is fitted with a Momo Monte Carlo steering wheel as well as air conditioning.

The engine compartment is in well-maintained condition but has never been restored. Considering this, it is in great shape, but it is not spotlessly clean. In general, it is correctly presented, with SPICA injection and airbox. The trunk received new carpet and is in very good condition. The undercarriage is solid, dry, and nearly free of corrosion. The seat pans appear to have been replaced and the workmanship was first rate.

This is a great opportunity to acquire a great-running unmodified GTV. Relatively inexpensive for most of their lives, many GTVs were neglected, a problem that is exacerbated by the fact that they are vulnerable to rust. This particular car is structurally sound and has been restored and tremendous expensive. It comes with a thick file of invoices from the restoration and is ready to drive and enjoy.
