Most GT Veloce's also had the lower rear guards, only the last few months of the GT Veloce production in '67 had the higher arches as seen on the 1750 GTV etc.
Enlarge the underhood photo. The first digit of the serial number is certainly a 2, not a 7. It is a GTV.

I've seen worse, looks pretty complete and the interior option is something I think all of us look for. The colour is great too, there are a lot of alfisti in Detroit area that would love to restore rhis car for you. It's worth at least 5 grand from the looks of it. I'd snatch this one up if I were you.


Start running

What ever way you juggle the figures the GT sold more than the GTV.
Why are they so rare now?

I was talking about GTV production.
The GT is a different animal.
GTV is a more rare than a GT.

'64 Guilia Spider
'67 GTV
'68 Giulia Super

Sort of on topic....

I'd like to know when that production year started for those 29 1968 Giulia GT Veloces. I know the chassis's weren't built to chronologically match their sequence but the last RHD one is 299870 and was build Dec 04 1967 and there was one about 20 numbers before built on Dec 06 1967. With the LHD cars 252827 was the latest build on any register and was also December 06 1967.

My understanding is that the production year starts in September after
the annual holidays in August therefore a car built in September 1967 would be a 1968 car.

Thanks Shane, I guess that makes my car a rare 1of29 MY1968 - 17th October 1967 built GTV. LOL

There do seem to be more Veloces still around than GTs which is interesting.

I hope the original poster updates us with how he is going with this car. Seems stepfronts are hot property these days even in ratty condition.

The Sprint GT is the rarer model on the market. Good GT are hard to find, many were abused for motorsports. Engines and a lot of specific parts are harder to find than the Veloce. Especially the early vintages are sought after by collectors. Priced both are at the same level, an upward trend......

I worked out a deal on the car (along with 4 other Alfas and parts) this week. I'll be heading to the barn for a couple of trips with a truck and trailer to start pulling the stuff out. The GTV step nose is going to be on the market soon, as it not a restoration project that I'm prepared to get into at the moment though it is tempting looking at recent prices of restored examples. I will see if I can safely free up the motor with a good Marvel Mystery Oil soak for a while.

The other cars include a '62 Giulietta spider, a couple of '79 Alfetta GTV's, and a late model Alfetta Sedan. Many parts for pre-GT Giulia sprint and Giulietta in the treasure-trove as well. This was the same barn that I bought a 2600 Spider from a few years ago, and all this other stuff was still there waiting for me when I asked this spring. Guess I'm solidly in the Alfa business now...

If you are interested in bringing it back to life and taking on the task the owner should give it to you. Seriously. Seems like anything in a barn is all of a sudden valuable. I am still amazed at the concept. $200 and I will haul it away. I'll even pay my own gas.someone parked it a long time ago cause they couldn't be bothered to deal with it, not because they speculated on its future value.

Update-- This Giulia Sprint should be arriving in Flagstaff AZ if it isn't already there. The new owner plans to restore it to its former glory.
