BaT Auction: 1969 Alfa Romeo GTV

This post was originally published on this site

This 1969 Alfa Romeo GTV is a recently restored example finished in gunmetal metallic grey over a black interior with ’69-only flying buttress seats. It was purchased by the seller 15 years ago out of the Midwest, where it was reported to have sat unused for over 15 years. The seller owns a small restoration shop, and the subsequent work totaled over $30k and roughly 1,000 hours of labor. Power is provided by a 1779cc inline-four paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Modifications include a set of sidedraft Weber carburetors, Rota alloy wheels, a stinger exhaust, and more. Approximately 20 shakedown miles have been added since the work was completed, and this GTV is now being offered with receipts from the restoration, the factory SPICA injection system, and a clear Minnesota title in the seller’s name.

The work began with taking the car down to the body shell, at which point it was media blasted. Sheet metal replacement and repair was performed as needed, as shown in the gallery below.
