1974 Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV

This 1974 Alfa Romeo 2000 GT Veloce (GTV) Coupe was the subject of a professional restoration about five years ago including a bare metal refinish in its original color of Le Mans Blue. Having been driven approximately 20k miles since, this Alfa Romeo is now being offered for auction out of California.

This GTV is said to have been stripped to bare metal and professionally refinished in its original Le Mans Blue color during the gestation. Equipment includes chrome bumpers with overriders, a single downturned exhaust tip, chrome windscreen surround, chrome driver’s side door mirror, quad headlights with yellow tinted high beams, vent windows, and an Alfa Serpent badge behind its rear quarter pop-out windows. Michelin Pilot Exalto tires are mounted on silver 15” GTA-style wheels.

The interior features front bucket seats and rear 2+2 seats in black vinyl, a three-spoke wood-rimmed steering wheel, and wood trim on the dashboard and center console. Amenities include shoulder belts, manual windows, and a lockable glovebox. The instrument cluster includes a tachometer, fuel gauge, oil pressure gauge, water temperature gauge, and a 140 MPH speedometer. All gauges and electronics are said to function properly.

The 2000 GTV is powered by a 2.0-liter twin-cam inline-four rated at 130 HP and 153 lb.-ft of torque. A 5-speed manual transmission drives the rear wheels, allowing the model to achieve a top speed of 120 MPH. The seller reports that Weber carburetors have replaced the original fuel injection system.

This sale will include a clean California title.

    Wow, if I didn't know better, I'd say this is my car! Its certainly the doppleganger. Mine was also at APC, also Lemans Blue, also a 1974. It was original everything and then I went crazy ass on it and did a lot of "upgrades" for better suspension and lots of upgrades on the engine.

    Personally, I was not that crazy with the color. For those bidding, this color blue is better represented in the pictures underneath the car. Its more of a lighter blue (not quite baby blue) than the first few pictures which seem to show it more saturated. If mine had been that color, I would have kept it - but I personally didn't like the color (even though it was original) and had it painted a deeper blue.

    There are lots of debates about Webers vs. the fuel injection. I was going to keep the fuel injection on mine and it literally stopped working the first weekend I bought the car so sent it right back to APC and ordered Webers and haven't looked back. I haven't had to get them tuned in 4 years but then again I don't drive my car much.

    This car looks in similar shape to mine. I did not get mine on an auction site - bought it just before the seller was going to list.

    In my opinion, these are worth a lot more if you don't need to work on the body which this one seems to be in good shape. These cars are not exactly made from the factory with rust proofing; mine was a CA car from the very beginning and its quite likely this one is either - unless they repaired already and did a good job of hiding it.

    There are lots of improvements to these engines one can make (I got a hotter crank) and the car likes to rev (in my opinion, its smoother when you rev it out in each gear). The only thing to watch out for is the synchros. You will get from a seller TADT but thats not true. My synchros are original but I do double clutch it going into 2nd and 3rd. Don't need to in 4th and 5th. Drives smoother that way.

    GLWS and to the new owner (whomever that may be). I'll be curious to see the value on this one - its been a while since I checked but good examples can go as high as $60K.

    Ah. Took a closer look at all photos. Not a full repaint. Even so, cool car.

  • curiousoffice (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @Berton We get that it means removing old paint down to the metal :) That doesn’t mean all “bare metal repaints” mean the entire car was disassembled. It usually means the exterior was taken down to bare metal. On the other hand, sometimes it means the entire chassis was dipped or blasted such that nothing was remaining attached to the chassis, resulting in new paint everywhere to include trunk, wheel wells, bottom surface etc. In this latter case, all sealant on the bottom of the car would have been removed. And then the entire car was reassembled. The reason I am asking is because certain photos show areas like inside the rear trunk were “cleaned up” but don’t look like the car had been completely disassembled. Since you don’t have photos and you answered the way you did; I think the answer is that it was not a full metal repaint.

    @DLC Yes, The glove box missing a rear holding clamp. I'm not sure if I source one, however I'll try to make one for better fit. Stay tune for new closeup photo.

  • Berton (seller) 1 monthago

    @DLC Unfortunately, I do not have any photos during restoration. I purchased the car from estate sale more than a year ago. I have records from previous owner that I will upload tonight.

    Seller, what does “stripped to bare metal” mean in this case? Down to the entire shell? Or just the outside visible paint areas?

  • curiousoffice (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @Berton excellent answer and appreciate the detail

    looks like the glove box does not fit properly.....please comment

  • Berton (seller) 1 monthago

    @curiousoffice The car went under restoration about 5 years ago. There are no rust bubbles anywhere (rust area addressed during restoration). The car has new clutch and rebuilt transmission. Transmission shifts smooth throughout all the gears. The car is very dry, there are no oil leaks, there are some seepage from the valve cover at the top, some seepage surrounding oil dipstick tube hose, and some seepage around transmission bell housing. There is no vibration or knocking. I'll upload some photos tomorrow afternoon. Please feel free to contact me direct for more info and you are welcome to do a PPI.

    Hi seller, I apologize in advance for the "20 questions"! Can you comment on the rust situation if any? Are there any rust bubbles anywhere but especially around A-pillars, window seals etc.? What about lower sills below the door? Any bubbles? Is there any trouble with gear changes? What condition is the clutch known to be? Does it only engage at the high point? Is there any vibration in the wheel, especially turning into corners? What about oil leaks? Do you see anything around the sump? Is there any knocking from suspension over bumps?
