I have decided to sell my GTV6. It is an 85 model year, built in 1984. It was a desert car in Nevada until Richard Jemison bought it in Las Vegas in 2008 and brought it East. I bought it from Richard in 2009. Richard described it as the most rust free GTV6 that he had seen. I found one small rust patch in the rt. Front fender, behind the wheel arch and I cut it out and welded in a patch panel from EB Spares in the UK. The color was originally charcoal and it had been painted silver. I gave the car a face lift which is detailed here: https://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/alf...face-lift.html
I removed the old paint down to the original primer and had it painted silver. It is not a show car but it is a good ten footer. I found evidence of minor collision repair to the front left and right rear but no rust anywhere. I replaced the plastic tea tray with a louvered stainless tray and I installed louvers to the rear hatch. I retained the 16” TSW Hockenheim wheels which are straight and in good condition which I recently covered with Bridgestone Potenza RE71-R 205/50R16 tires.
The desert sun had done a number on the interior and I replaced the seats, door panels, side panels, headliner (new) and dash with good used parts. I also replaced the Tachometer, Speedometer and clock with a good set that were in the same car as the dash. The original 3 point seat belts are installed and work fine and I have also installed a pair of Sparco 4 point harnesses which reside on the back seat when not in use.
I installed a 3L 164 motor that was built by Giussepe Lore for his son’s GTV6 and which had only done a few thousand miles when the car was totaled. It had “S pistons” and cams. I replaced the Bosch L-jet with a Megasquirt programmable management computer with matched larger injectors from Al Mitchell. I also installed RJ 429/82 cams, CSC headers plus 2.5” custom exhaust and a modified intake system including enlarged pleunum, Greg Gordon smooth hose and big Jetex filter installed in the compartment in front of the right wheel for cold air pickup. A Zat stayfast tensioner is installed and the water pump and timing belt have less than 5000 miles on them since they were installed in 11/16. The ignition is also controlled by Megasquirt with a Bosch ignition module and an MSD Blaster coil. I replaced the vane type AAV with a PWM motorized valve which is controlled by Megasquirt. The engine is cooled by a big aluminum radiator and an aluminum coolant reservoir and it does not overheat on the hottest days. The car made 214 rear wheel HP at 6000 rpm and 207 rear wheel ft lb at 5400 rpm on a Mustang dyno in April 2017. That is equivalent to about 260 HP and 250 ft-lb at the flywheel.
Both flywheels were lightened by Richard Jemison. The transaxle is from a Milano Platinum and it was rebuilt by Richard with lightened gears. He media blasted the LSD clutch plates and set them up with the correct end float. The driveshaft is stock except for a reinforced center bearing housing from Al Mitchell. New clutch friction disk was installed 5/8/19.
I rebuilt the suspension with 27 mm torsion bars, RJ dropped spindle uprights, 27 mm blade type front sway bar, Shankle rear springs Koni yellow front shocks and SPAX adjustable rear shocks. All rubber bushings have been replaced with poly. All four inner and outer tie rod ends were replaced with new OEM parts. New boots for steering rack were installed 5/7/19.
New ATE rotors and Ferodo DS2500 pads were installed about a year ago. I also installed an adjustable proportioning valve to balance the rear brakes.
The starter is a Brise axial that cost about $600 a year ago. Head lights are Hella and are on relays. Rear lights, brake lights and reversing lights are also on relays Brake light bulbs are LED. Radiator fans are twin 12” pushers. I removed the radio and front speakers and installed a radio blanking panel with a voltmeter and an electronic fuel pressure gauge. I installed a Zeitronix ZT3 wideband that is wired into the Megasquirt. There is space for a readout on the radio blanking panel. A serial to USB cable is included to program the Megasquirt from a laptop. The power windows and the outside mirrors all work. The rear defroster does not work. All other controls work.
The Aircon did not work when I got the car and there were parts missing so I removed it. Only the evaporator and temperature control thermostat remain. I installed a new sun roof handle surround and the mechanism worked but it leaked. I sealed it with DAP caulk before the car was painted. The door handles are all good but the driver door lock is jammed. Two sets of keys are included.
I can include any or all of the following in the deal: Milano Verde 24 mm front sway bar, Alfetta rear sway bar, pair of good 164 cylinder heads, speed shift handle, good rear hatch, power window regulators.
This GTV6 is solid and rust free. It is fast and it handles and brakes well and it makes a glorious sound. It has no leaks or unusual vibrations. It is located in Columbia SC. Asking price is now $16k.
