Chassis no. AR3024419. Quarry Beige with a blue nose apron over black vinyl. 1,962/145hp, dual 45DCOE Webers, limited slip axle, fuel cell, alternator, 4-piston disc brakes, Konis, Eibach springs, urethane bushings, 15" Campagnolo style alloy wheels, Michelin tires, Prototipo leather rim steering wheel, Stack tachometer.

Evaluation: Clean, orderly engine compartment. Good clearcoat paint with a few small flaws. Good upholstery, glass and gauges. No bumpers. Plenty of professionally done engine and handling upgrades results in this solid package. Driving out of the preview it displayed the “thud, thud” of an Alfa’s short induction tract, just as it should.

Bottom Line: This is a dream car. It’s not original, it doesn’t purport to be original, but it has all the stuff anyone could ever want in a GTV, competently and thoughtfully done. (Does it show that I like GTVs and am not afraid of making them better?) With stock GTVs bringing near, and even over, 6-figure prices (to say nothing of “Outlaw” Porsches), this is a sincere value.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
