Body and Interior true to 1971 series II 1750 and complete. all trim perfect with only patina showing on original driver's side mirror, windshield frame and side markers. Paint and body appear excellent from 10 feet with exception of driver's door crease that can be seen from 20.

Mechanically, this car is as fast and fun as you can make a daily driver and still want to take it on a 300 mile drive. My growing family makes me cut back to just my Giulia Spider Veloce again. Please take care of this GTV until I can justify buying it back from you when they are in college.

Always good to look at these things but that sounds like a (VG) starting point:)

Price is $10,000 or best offer

Sorry I left that out, guys. I am nearing 50 and so is my Spider - eventually even the chrome goes.

Since 1975 I have always had that first Alfa and always will. A previous 1750 GTV came and went during college, then a '79 Sprint Veloce for 8 more years, then this GTV for the past 5. I am a sentimental ideot, and this one will have to go to an owner who knows Alfas, and really wants to enjoy this one carefully. Currently, there are 3 such callers who fit that description and two have plans to see it on Friday. This is not an auction, but $10K may be a bit low.

Thanks,
Tim.

This car will be sold on Friday, November 9th.

So far, 4 incredibly knowledgable alfisti have inspected and driven this car. I have committed to all that I will choose the best home for it this Friday. There is one offer still not yet placed, but things look very good. If you have been quiet on the sidelines, there will not be a second chance at this car anytime soon. Please speak up now, because the next owner will be a long term caretaker, not a flip artist.

Soon I will be focused back on that Giulia.

So you mean that because you're approaching 50 years old you can't drive a GTV anymore?......just kidding...looks very, very nice....whoever gets the car will be a lucky man!

SOLD, to a very good home.

I am proud to say that my 5 years of ownership of this fine car has come to another happy new stage. I reached agreement with a fellow BBer and loyal Alfista for my asking price after a full inspection and test drive by Conrad Stevenson in Berkeley, since he was closer to Palo Alto than the new owner.

This Bulletin Board forum can score another success in keeping Alfas among those who will continue to improve and appreciate them.

Tim,
Congrats on the painless sale, hopefully to a good home. Now, how about pix of that Spider? Assuming this is currently a driver, what's the next phase?

Focus

NOT for sale: I've owned the white one since '75. Here it is among many others at Concorso Italiano a few years ago. I bought it from the first owner, a neighbor, when I was 15, for $600. ...I am old.
