FrankenAlfa: ’74 Alfa Romeo GTV
We are typically purists at heart but sometimes a car that has been modified smartly just sounds so much better than a boring stock version. That is what happened here with this beautifully prepared GTV. The seller operates a shop in California that prepares cars for the Mille Miglia and works on complicated exotics like a Lamborghini Diablo. With that knowledge he built this GTV for his wife. The most astounding modifications are underneath the skin so let us address the easy part first: it looks great in silver with black interior. Not just any interior but an interior with seats and steering wheel from a Ferrari, Kenwood Stereo with Bluetooth and iPod connectivity and working A/C. The engine is a factory turbocharged 1750 Milano EVO he had shipped in from the UK. It has programmable fuel-injection, forged pistons and was rebuilt 7 years ago. The transmission got the same treatment so there are no 2nd gear Alfa issues to speak of. It also has a Kevlar clutch and rebuilt hydraulics. Can you see where this is going?
