'72-'74 US spec (all 2L with Spica, "new" all metal front grill, and "new" interior). None better than the other. All good years/cars. Unlike 1750s all 2L GTVs came with lsd from the factory.

'75-'76 Euro spec (2L carbs). Rare in the US, but not necessarily more desirable than '72-'74.
It should be noted that all RHD models have floor pedals. No hanging pedals.

Would I be able to check for which market the car was made for.

The car is LHD, and the person I bought it from told me that the car was originally imported from Italy to Germany. Is there a way to verify this ?

Contact the Alfa records department with the cars number off the firewall and they will let you know when it was built and where it was sent.

True, but they are probably still closed, see this thread: http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/gt-1...ervices-2.html but you never know, maybe they finally have everything sorted now (one can hope...).

Btw congratulations on the purchase!

Done that. And i got the following:

in order to improve our services, we’re rearranging the archives at the Centro Documentazione Alfa Romeo (Arese). For this reason, the researches of car registry information are currently suspended.
In the next few months, the service will be reactivated with a new dedicated website.

We apologize for this temporary inconvenience.


Best regards

Ah, the Italian "next few months"......... But once you can get access to this information, you will be able to find out the original details of the car.

Welcome, good decision btw. Please post pics when you have some.

Congrats. I've had my ups and downs but love the car - even more now that I can drive it. I really miss it when too many days go by. Winter is going to be hard when I bag it. I'll have to break it out on a nice December day to get a fix.

The car has finally arrived after over a month of waiting.

Xmas came early this year, with a gift in a form of a big metal box. Pity I wasn't the person opening it

And here she is

Nice car, and interesting colour and wheels. Just to add my opinion, I'd say the most important factors are condition of the car and whether you prefer the '70's feel of the 2000 styling or the '60's feel of the 1750. Many people do say the 1750 has a slightly sweeter engine, but in many cases any difference is lost in the last 45 years of variable servicing quality and restoration work - a well looked after 2000 will be sweeter than a 1750 that's had a hard life.

1972 Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV.
1968 Rover P5B Coupe.
