ALFA ROMEO 1750 GTV - £59,995
The Alfa Romeo 1750 GT Veloce appeared in 1967 replacing the Giulia Sprint GT Veloce and introducing many updates and modifications. Most significant of which, the engine capacity was increased to 1779 cc producing 120 hp at 5,500 rpm. On paper, the updates appeared to make little difference however upon driving, the increased power combined with a higher final drive ratio allowed the car to carry much higher speeds for touring. The chassis was also significantly modified with revised suspension geometry, wider wheels, a rear anti-roll bar fitted and larger front disc brakes.
Externally a new nose was seen, eliminating the stepped hood of the Giulia Sprint GT. Inside also featured many new elements including a redesigned dashboard with a large speedometer and tachometer instruments in twin binnacles and new seats introducing adjustable headrests which merged with the top of the seat when fully down.
This RHD example was delivered new to Mr John Ballard Stringfellow located in the United Kingdom in May 1970. During the entirety of its life the car has remarkably remained in the United Kingdom with only 7 owners.
Documents accompanying the cars history suggest it received frequent yet limited use with regular servicing during the early stages of its life and by June 1992 is had covered a recorded mileage of just 41,749 Miles.
It has since covered just 10,000 Miles and in circa 2010 was subjected to a most comprehensive restoration by marque specialists Veloce Sport. During which time all mechanical components were carefully re-commissioned as well as the body being painted to the fine shade of Grey it presents in today. The interior was expertly re-upholstered to genuine specifications in an Ox Blood Red Vinyl.
Its most recent owner acquired the car in March 2015 and has since dry stored the car alongside the reminder of his exceptional collection. Despite covering under 1,000 Miles during his most careful ownership the car has been annually entrusted into the hands of Alfaholics. To ensure that it drove on the button during his ownership, in addition to the regular servicing, in March 2016 it received a further comprehensive mechanical overhaul and significant upgrade at the cost of almost £20,000. During said work, Alfaholics completed a number of upgrades to electrify the GTVs driving experience even further including a complete new fast road head with oversize inlet valves, an Alfaholics lightened rear propshaft, Fast road suspension as well as adjustable GTA type suspension arms, upgraded exhaust system and new Michelin tyres fitted.
Today this superb example has covered under 51,950 Miles and comes accompanied by its spare key, original spare wheel and history file with a comprehensive photo record document its restoration. Presented with full UK road registration this GTV is available to view at our showrooms just outside London immediately.
