1986 GTV6 prepped to race

My father, an Alfa nut and former racer, has recently been put on hospice services in the final stages of lung cancer. He has two Alfas: a 1974 Spider and 1984 (not 86 as previously posted) GTV6. It is time to sell. Posting GTV6 here and will post Spider separately.

The GTV6 was his favorite racer. Street OK, but modified for track (but needs track tires). Currently registered as non-op in SF Bay Area, but could be registered with a little work for smog.

Updates include:
Milano Platinum limited slip transaxle --- rebuilt with drilled gears,
tightened shim pack, replaced synchros, shims, bearings mounts and seals.
Adjustable Watts link (Zat)
Zat spark module
Replaced water pump, rear calipers (didn’t help the parking brake jambing
up, so I disconnected it)
Replaced brake master cylinder
Replaced sway bar links and sway bar
Installed “track-worthy shocks”
Replaced clutch assembly and slave cylinder
Replaced airflow meter
3 Liter engine with S cams
Milano power steering ( a wonderful change)
ASG full roll cage
27.3 torsion bar
European CSL Manifold Big Bore Headers (from England)
Modified exhaust (but still legal)
Dropped spindles!
140 mph speedometer (but never wired it up)

A couple of pictures are below. More available. Miscellaneous spare parts and instruments also included.

Not sure how to price - would appreciate advice from neutral parties!

Sounds like a nicely prepped car.

Regarding price I'd suggest looking at BAT (Bring A Trailer). There have been several other modified gtv6s sold recently and they could provide sale prices for comparison.

Agreed. Thatís a good set of mods for a GTV6.

Getting it registered and street-able will have the biggest impact on pricing.

Nice GTV6 prepped for track day and time trials. A photo of engine bay and drivers seat, fire suppression, fuel cell might help get a better idea of race prep.

But offhand, I would say from quick evaluation of the small amount of photos may $8k-$12k? Looks pretty rust free which is always a big consideration.

I'm assuming the lights work all around, horn works. Should be easy to register in the appropriate states. I live in Reno and "street legal" means, you have car insurance, clear title, VIN checks out, and paid your annual registration.

Bring A Trailer is a terrible place to sell race cars but more pics will definitely help the pricing

First of all you and your dad have my sympathy and I hope that he is going peacefully.

I agree with the post suggesting 8k - 12K. The market for a car like this is rather small and you may have to be patient. My similar car took months to sell and it eventually went for $14k. I am providing post sale tech service to the new owner and I think that was a selling point. It was also registered and on the road and is temporarily being driven on my plates.

Your car was much nicer than the GTV6 discussed on this thread.

Since anyone who is interested in seeing photos before deciding to investigate further, suggest you take 100 or more and hopefull some are WELL lit and UP on a lift so we can see the condition of the underside. These are more difficult to rust repair than older ones. Its an important consideration for a potential convert back to street buyer.

Once done, put together a 1 or 2 pager on the car, the parts, the mods and put them all in a publically shared folder in the cloud (iCloud, Google Drive etc) It will save you lots of time in the long run and you appear to be more responsive when fielding inquiries. I do this for every car I sell.

Good luck-nice car. Sorry about your pops. That is a road that awaits me in a few years

And I will take the advice to create a site with photos, but that will be another time.

Sorry to hear about your Dad! My mom went through the same terrible thing as well. My thoughts are with you and your family.

I see older CSC headers, thicker front torsion bars and progressive rear springs.

This GTV6 was bid up to $8,800 on Bring A Trailer with no sale and no effort on the seller part. You can probably do better.

If you want to sell them quick, list them both on BAT are no/low reserve, and be active in answering question.
