3.0ltr GTV6 Value

Hi All, I have a 84' GTV6, Zero Rust, Sunroof and AC, (I did not put the AC Equip. on the motor but have it all), with a 3.0ltr, that I bought from Nasko, (under 100k, miles), w/ S cams and Headers, and a Platinum Trans-axle, both put in last year. Momo Wheels, Black Leather Ricaro Seats, and Black Metalic Exterior, but in need of re-painting, (I've already bought the paint). It runs very smooth and strong. Is NADA Value @ $12, average and $17, high accurate and how much are the upgrades worth? Can anyone give me an idea of value? Thanks, Bob in Oregon robert.p.lesher@gmail.com

I'm not a market expert, Bob but those numbers do seem a little optimistic, in my humble opinion. Maybe others will comment...

Some talking points to offer:

- Yes there are some mint, original, low-mile GTV6's offered for sale, asking upwards of $16-$19k from dealers.
- BUT if you consider this an example of the market speaking: A really nice, private owner, zero-rust, stock GTV6 with no issues, attracted bids up to $4,500 but no sale. (Another mint, low mile Alfetta 2.0L bid up to and sold at $4,750.00).

My sense of the market is your upgrades neither add nor deduct value from the car. I think in most buyer's eyes, it's still mainly selling on the basic virtues of the GTV6 model. Some are modded, some are original. They both have their place.

Good luck,

In my opinion body condition is paramount. Rust free is great, but in need of paint takes a lot off the value, imo. I'd say $5k in need of paint, regardless of the upgrades and/or overall condition.

If you're planning on painting it before you sell it, that's another story. I'd say the mods and upgrades add value in this case. You've got the most desirable upgrade combo (again, my opinion). This is the car that Alfa should have built, 3.0 with Platinum LS transaxle. Freshly painted, with those mods, I'd hope you could get $12k - $15k for the car.

HTH,

So few GTV6s are sold in the US in a given year that there really is no true market of buyers and sellers. Thus, setting a market value is impossible. Even nation-wide eBay may have only 1 or 2 for sale at a given time, almost none of which will be stock. Perhaps there are a couple thousand road-registered GTV6s in the US. (50 states X 50 per state average is 2500 cars).

The best bet is to take the car to various local Alfa club/Italian car events or Cars&Coffee meetings with a "For Sale" sign on it. Sooner or later someone will show interest. The selling price ends up being a combination of how much they like the car for visceral reasons and how deep their pockets are. ("I have always been a Ferrari guy but wanted an Alfa for a daily driver" vs. "I wanted something Italian but the new Fiat 500 is too expensive").

Then there is always "I truly regret selling that GTV6 I once had. Pain in the rear to keep running but totally worth it".

I bought a well sorted and documented one for $8000 in 2013 with 3.0 motor (about 40K miles on the motor), reupholstered seats in tan leather, good black paint, zero rust, working A/C, recent clutch and rebuilt transaxle, updated suspension, but it had a faulty fusebox and leaking fuel filler hose. Since then, I have done a few more things to make it reliable. I replaced the fusebox, had the injectors cleaned, replaced all the fuel lines, filler neck hose, and emission hoses and valves, replaced the 02 sensor, replaced the brake pads, replaced the brake proportioning valve, replaced the battery, cleaned the sunroof drain channels, and cleaned the power window motors and lubricated the mechanisms. I did most of the work myself so there is no labor cost, just parts.

Good thing is that you are In Oregon, so there is a market for the car. If rust free and sorted as you say, with a few cosmetic issues to resolve - you are probably in the $6 - $9000 range. If you are looking for insurance value, I had no issue with getting mine valued at $14K through Chubb. Which is about what I have in the body work alone - rotisserie. It is a hot rod with a home brewed supercharged 2.5. Interior is fair.

Witty's is very nice and $8000 in today's market is probably low.

84 Spider - Long gone, but started the addiction; 85 GTV6 - Current project, Supercharged, Mega Squirt; 88 Verde - "Milo" It has a name, must be a keeper
