1974 Alfa Romeo GTV 2000 finished in Red with Yellow Racing stripes and period correct Black Sport seat interior.

Built in 2005 by well known and respected West Coast Alfa specialist Stewart Sandeman ( a 40 plus year advisor for the Alfa Club ), this colorful and perfectly speced GTV is a street legal canyon carver with a nod towards Vintage Racer. An exhilarating driver, this car will surly excite you almost as much as it does those who see it on the road! Quick, reliable and a total blast to drive. The 2.0 liter engine has been fitted with twin Weber side draft carburetors and an electronic ignition. The roll bar painted in Yellow adds safety as well as a salute towards it’s race car influence. Panasport alloys, custom dash board with a centered tachometer, mesh headlamp covers, GTA style front mesh grill, sport seats with racing harnesses all add to the Vintage Racer look as well. Many custom touches make this a very special GTV. These special cars have have a recent surge in pricing. This car is priced at $33,900.

IMO the main problem is this car is far too personalized to appeal to a wide audience. It's not a race car and is too tarted up for most tastes as a street car. Things like the dash and yellow wheels are keeping buyers away. The black engine compartment certainly doesn't help value. The seller will either need to lower his price substantially or wait even longer until the right buyer comes along. At 20k I think this might sell.

$20,000 is way too low in my opinion, $33,000 may be too high but you can not get a decent GTV like this for $20,000 anywhere around me. $25,000 seems good to me.

Yup. It's fine to build a hot rod but when you tire of it, it's tough to get your money back.

I'm not suggesting this car might not be worth more. The question is to who? It's been offered several times in different venues and I think has received no bids on a 24k opening on Ebay (I might be wrong, but I have paid attention). The market has been tested and I think it points to the seller having to take a hit because of the extreme personalization and non-oriiginality. If this GTV is done to a potential buyer's taste there may be a good deal to be had. The seller is a dealer and has moved other Alfas. In his shoes I believe I'd take the loss and move on.

Its an interesting car at a different price. At the asking price or there abouts its a tough sale. Its been on the market for a very very long time. Sometimes you have to hit the bid, take your licks and move on.

You've hit the nail on the head. Not a vintage race car, nor a respectable looking street car. This is one confused GTV that's been randomly showing up online for at least a year. It's simply ugly and doesn't seem to have any redeeming qualities. Way over priced...

The more I consider what this car is the less interested in it I become. In order to make it work for me I would end up with a lot more time and money into it above the already high price. The mechanicals make it intriguing but to sort the rest of it and get it to where its a car I can comfortably drive when ever I want, and also get rid of those stripes, is going to make it more than its worth to me.
