“Couped Up”: ’74 Alfa-Romeo GTV 2000
The seller states that he is an Italian car collector and is paring down to pursue other interests. We think that is a good thing. For the cars at least. We say let the Alfas go to someone who will use them. Today’s find is the last year that the US market was treated to Coupes in this beautiful Bertone design. It all started back in the mid-60s with the “step-nose” or “scalino” GTs. They were the purist iteration of how Giorgetto Giugiaro envisioned the Coupe. The later cars lost the step-nose detail, grew a little bit bigger yet it still retained that beautiful look. Today’s find is a restored car with new everything including the motor. It looks like it is running Webers instead of the SPICA fuel injection. The interior looks to be in good condition and we always like the option of having a rear seat. Even if it is just for groceries or the family dog. It also looks to be an original silver car which is quite nice. We’ll wager 50% of the cars were red so this is kind of refreshing. The seller doesn’t state if this is the original color but that is an easy to confirm by emailing Alfa’s historic information department. The seller is asking $30,000 in the BUY IT NOW auction but has a starting bid of $25,000. We think somewhere in between is the right price. That is, if all of that was done checks out okay.
