1974 ALFA ROMEO 2000 GT VELOCE
The Alfa Romeo 2000 GT Veloce (also known as 2000 GTV) was introduced in 1971. The series 115 replaced the previous 105 1750 engine GTV. These coupes succeeded previously successful models including the Giulietta Sprint and Giulia Sprint. The 1974 models were fitted with SPICA manual fuel injection for the American market. These models were the pinnacle of the Alfa coupe design that ran from 1963-1977.
Muscular but with subtle curves, it effortlessly blended the former more sensuous curves with the sharper lines attributed to 1970's design. Actively raced in period, this model handles well and pulls strongly compared to it's contemporary competitors including the BMW 2002 & Datsun 510.
SAME OWNER LAST 45 YEARS!
This 1974 Alfa Romeo GTV 2000 is virtually a one-owner car. It was delivered new to Brown Motors of San Rafael, CA on November 10th, 1975 and was acquired by the current owner in January, 1977.
The car is finished in red over black vinyl upholstery and is powered by a 2.0 liter twin-cam inline four cylinder engine that is mated to a five-speed manual transmission. Equipment includes SPICA mechanical fuel injection, a limited slip differential, 14” Cromodora alloy wheels and four wheel disc brakes. It was equipped with a factory-installed air conditioning package. That package included tinted windows and a trunk mounted battery enclosed in a protective cover installed in the right rear fender well. A spare wheel/tire combination is mounted under the trunk floor.
We have all service records and dealer book, documenting repairs and service. Also available are the original dealer’s window sticker and all manufacturer’s literature including the owner’s manual, it has a clean California title.
The engine was rebuilt in 1985 when the odometer showed 113,000 miles. The cylinder head, prepared by Norman Racing in Berkeley, California, included oversized intake valves, silicone bronze valve guides and “Euro Spec” cams. At that time the AC compressor and attachment accessories were removed to save weight and reduce stress on the front of the head. Those parts are included with this sale. The car was repainted the same year in Alfa 501 Rosso.
Exterior touches include a chromed driver’s door mirror, bumpers with overrides, CIBIE driving lights, yellow fog lamps and an ANSA dual tipped rear exhaust section. Quadrifoglio badges are found on the C-pillars.
The car has always been garaged in the San Francisco Bay Area and evidences no rust in the undercarriage.
Most recently a new clutch slave cylinder was installed as was a new headlight/turn signal column switch. A paint blemish is noted on the rear passenger-side wheel arch and a small area of “bubbling” paint is noted on the driver’s side windshield cowl.
