Going Green: ’68 Alfa Romeo GTV
If you have never had the pleasure of owning an Alfa this may be your chance to score what appears to be a really nice example. Let’s be upfront here. It isn’t absolutely perfect but few GTVs are at this price. The seller has owned the car since 1980 and it has had a refresh that is holding up well. The interior is restored using Re-Originals materials and it looks good. The seats are unique because they have openings in the side bolsters. We thought that feature was exclusive to the 1969 GTV but crazy things happen when cars get built. We owned a GT Junior in this color, Pino Verde, and it is wonderful. The seller states it has a few cosmetic issues here and there but nothing that would prevent you from an invitation to a tour or rally. He also states the 2nd gear synchro is weak. This is a common problem with Alfas. Some say not to bother repairing an ailing synchro because you won’t get that investment back. It is approximately $1500 to repair the gearbox and then you have to get it out and back in again. Of course you throw in a new clutch while it is out – yada-yada-yada. Learn how to double clutch some say. If you buy this right, repair the gearbox during the winter doldrums and keep the car forever. The seller is asking $25,000 and we are sure there is some wiggle room here. Contact the seller by clicking here.
