my Verde Oliva Metallizzato1974 2000 GTV

As some you may know, I owned a few nice Alfa's about 10-15 years ago. Well times change and I had moved onto British cars. About 6 weeks ago I got The itch for a GTV again.
So I called my old mechanic Santos Italian car, in North Ridge Ca. I purchased this late (10/74 build) 2000 GTV. At first I was not sure of the color that is original to to the car. But I think it is a nice change from 501 Red.
It is a work in progress. These are some photos of it now. The engine bay still needs work (painting ect). I will keep posting updates.

Paul, thanks for the kind words, it looks a bit better in photos, than in person. Tomorrow I put it up on my rack, to detail the suspension. In the end I will have the engine bay repainted. But for now, I will get the exhaust manifolds replaced with a set that we had sent to Jet Hot coatings. And the I will paint the radiator tank, and clean up a few things. Also had the air box black crinkle powder coated. It is a nice driver, has most of my cars are.

I agree with Paul, metallic olive green is a superb colour for these cars. And it looks magnificent, you must be very particular about your cars!

Dunno if that was a color offered for 74 but is stunning on yours.
It was offered in 69 for juniors and selected it for mine and still happy I did. Went out to put it in garage last evening and caught the last light accenting it:
