enri, anything Alfa made less than 1000 of is gonna be rare, therefore desireable/collectable/valueable (strike out any, or all, not applicable). Particularly 105's. That particular one is not for the feint hearted for sure, but it is rare enough to be worth saving. Gonna be a lot of blood, sweat and tears though.

the gtc looses the c-pillar which i think is the nicest thing on a 105 coupe.
and my giulia super would drive better, and it can also carry kids in the back too.

I think you can get a couple of kids in the back of a GTC enri, but personally I would'nt, I'd scare em too much. But yeah, I agree with all that. Mind you, by the time that one is all shiny and ready for kids in the back, you'd have half a dozen other very tasty Alfa's parked in the.....what?..warehouse!

If I win the lottery I'm all over that GTC too. I'm still bummed that I 'just' missed out on getting one a couple of years ago, I was a day too late!

The GTC is most definitely very collectible...far more so than the coupes, apart from the GTA obviously, and a lot more collectible than duettos.

A nice GTC will fetch $60-80k here, and about $40k pounds in the UK. Being LHD, when restored there'd easily be a big market for it in EU and USA.

Mind you, that's a $50k resto minimum on that car, but it will be worth it to the brave soul who takes it on. If I didn't have a project I'd consider it.

no warehouse unfortunatly. no point anyway, you can only drive one at the time. the best thing is to sell them so someone else keeps up the maintenence and then buy it back later

what about the condition of the gtc .
how much would a skilled metal worker with panelshop overheads charge to make something nice out of that.
i wouldnt like to take the chance on finding a buyer later.

Yeah, at least $50K Damo. If memory serves me correctly, Arco said he spent more than that on his GTC, which sounded like a better starting point than this one.

enri, I think the only person likely to take that on IS a skilled panel worker. You would be doing it for love. And the GTC is so not Pete's new Berlina!

I can vouch for Arco's car as it was my wedding day transportation! Although it might lose a little in aesthetics to the GT, it is a car to behold. If someone takes on that project they will have a gorgeous and rare finished product that will be almost irreplaceable in this country. It will be worth nearly $60K finished so it will probably be a restoration that actually makes sense!

it has served the purpose i wanted it to do- have a go at owning and driving a 105 series.

i would have kept it longer but i just bought a sud that was too good to let go.

It would probably be a really good little car, but interestingly, its the 4WD drivetrain from the mid eighties 33 4WD Wagon, not the Permanent 4 system from the later 33 16V, which is a different kettle of fish altogether. I think the earlier 4WD was Subaru based and the Permanent 4 system was EU sourced, (and comes with an extra 30 something HP as well). Now, that would be an interesting Sud!

for such an extreme modified project, i would have put the outboard front disks from the 33 and removed the front driveshafts turning it into a rwd. more fun.

its got the wrong bootlid. those extra lights arnt suppose to be there.

The mod has been carried out before, though I'm unsure how successfully. On the subject of front brakes, there was a sprinting Sprint around which had BOTH the IB and OB discs operational on the front axles

Converting a FWD to RWD could also present some interesting handling issues as basic steering and susp geometry is a bit different between the two.

Personally, I think a 33 wagon would be cool cut down into a Ute Might have to investigate this one further...........................

Anyone here good with Photoshop ? If so, how's about starting a new thread ? Ute, Xtra Cab, Twin Cab ??
