GTV6 on TradeMe

http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/List...x?id=251117395

I'm pretty sure this one was being sold through Lotus Cars in Waiuku late last year for 18k....bit of a drop in price

I suspect it will be withdrawn and sold with an offer outside of TradeMe given the fact witihin hours of listing it he had 2-3 people wanting to see it the next day, but I guess you never know. A cheap GTV6 even if there were some "issues" with it.

1985 Alfa Romeo GTV6 - iTunes by Alfa - 214 -- Classic cars | vintage cars, car enthusiasts and historic racing

Article in NZ Classic Car featuring this car. I think the eventual price came down to around $16k - $17k.

Going from the photos there doesn't appear to be any major problems with it. $3900 is cheap for a very below average GTV6. Even if this car was halfway buggered it would still be good value at that price.

Stick your bid in there and he won't be able to pull it. I'm tempted. I seriously doubt I would be the sole bidder once it got going.

What`s supposedly wrong with the car apart from those awful stripes? Does anyone know if it did sell last year?
I personally, as a GTV6 owner ,would really be gutted if the car sells as low as $3900, especially when you see people asking much higher prices for POS cars that even when brand new were POS. There`s no accounting for taste that would put a higher value on something that was not in the GTV6`s performance league, its style or its level of engineering or have its pedigree. These cars are so undervalued.

Who knows if there is anything wrong with the car Richard. It certainly appears to be a bargain at 4K even with the odd thing or two/minor issues to do to it given comparable GTV6s appear to have sold in the 10k -12k range through Trademe/Aroc over the last year or so.....wish I had a spare 4k/time/drivespace etc...

Agree with both of you guys. I don't think there's anything wrong with it, I believe it's a marketing strategy/gamble intended to create a bit of chatter and interest (a bit like this) with hopefully a bidding frenzy at the end.

There are (believe it or not) people out there who buy a car because it looks cool but don't really get the whole driving thing. Realising that what they've bought is beyond they’re understanding they flick it for whatever $$.

I find a little odd though that the seller is not advertising the fact that the car featured in NZ Classic Car.

Richard, beat it goes for twice that - 8kish. Be interesting to see.

In regards to comparable cars getting higher prices, it was shown a few weeks back with a nice yellow GT going for 3.5k start/reserve and a similar age/condition Nissan260Z [or was it a 240z??] for about triple that price. Seems classic *** performance cars are worth a lot more than classic Italians in the eyes of many.

Well at least a 240Z has some merit even if not the pedigree and interesting engineering of the Alfa but ****boxes such as old Fords, Holdens, ordinary Yank and Japanese stuff that was absolutely ordinary and of no merit when it was new let alone nowadays stagger me with the prices being asked (and achieving). No justice is there.

Couldn`t help myself. Hard to resist a bargain and if nothing else may run the price up.

I'll be surprised/disappointed if it goes for less than $10k.

Surprised - because I think it's probably worth it.

Disappointed - like yourself it really s**ts me when I look through the classified ads or Trade Me and see crappy old Fords/Holdens/Toyotas going for good money, then an old Alfetta in good original condition struggling to get a bite.

I'm considering going for a look this weekend; if I get the time. If the bidding stays low I'll definetly be throwing my hat in.

$8300... Good buying or a bit of a steal? I thought it would have gone for a bit more.
Looks like the winning bidder is from ChCh, so keep your eyes peeled down there, it would be hard to miss with those stripes though.

Well if its a straight car the seller I wouldn't think would be thank happy with new-car style 50% depreciation in one year's ownership. But I guess you never know, hopefully the new owner got it checked over before buying.

Only trouble is that its another Alfa heading to the dark depths of the south never to return north
