Hemmings Find of the Day – 1974 Alfa Romeo GTV

Published in

While the term “restomod” generally conjures up images of Camaros and Mustangs infused with modern crate engines, it can be applied to automobiles of foreign origin, too. Take this 1974 Alfa Romeo GTV, for sale on, for example: In place of the original 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, equipped with SPICA fuel injection and rated at 130 horsepower, a previous owner imported a more contemporary “Twin Spark” Alfa four, reportedly good for 150 horsepower. It’s been sorted cosmetically, too, including a very recent repaint in the original French Blue. While those seeking an Alfa for investment purposes may pass this example by, buyers looking for a car to drive and enjoy at an affordable-for-Alfa-Romeo price may want to give this GTV a closer look. From the seller’s description:

1974 Alfa Romeo GTV Twin Spark

Here is a beautifully restored French Blue 1974 GTV with a Twin Spark Engine. This is a really fast GTV ready for the street or the track. I purchased it from the previous owner who restored it a few years back and kept it in storage and only drove 500 miles on the Twin Spark Engine. The original color is French Blue and it was repainted 2 months ago.
– The Twin Spark Engine is from Italy and was installed with low miles (it is a stock 150 Horsepower engine)
– Super fast low end and top speed. An Oil Pan Guard is installed. I drove it on the freeway for 45 minutes last week and felt a big difference in power and speed compared to a performance 2 Liter engine.
– Suspension – has been reconditioned with koni shocks, sport springs from International, and a rear sway bar from Shangle – Transmission and Clutch Reconditioned – No Oil Leaks and No Grinding – Complete muffler system
– New Battery
– Dash has been reconditioned – no cracks
