VIEWING BY APPOINTMENT ONLY PLEASE.

- According to the Alfa Romeo production archives, this 2000 GT Veloce was manufactured on October 8th 1973 and invoiced by the factory to Alfa Romeo London on October 10th 1973. The original colours were Piper yellow with anthracite cloth interior. It was first registered in England on January 14th 1976.
- This GTV was acquired by the previous owner (who we purchased it from) in April 1985 from a friend of his who had purchased it in August 1983. According to the V5C registration document the car had had only three owners prior to the friend.
- We were informed by the previous owner (who lived in Gillingham, Kent) that when he purchased the car the body was in a sound condition but showing signs of corrosion. He used the car as everyday transport until early 1987 when he instructed Impact Coachworks of Gillingham to carry out a restoration of the car. The work apparently included the replacement of the sills, wheel arches, and the front and rear panels, and new seat covers were made by the Gentleman’s wife. From the invoices on file it appears that the restoration was completed in early 1990. Part of the restoration was featured in the August 1987 edition of Practical Classics magazine, a copy of which is on file. After the restoration was completed the car was stored in a garage and only used in the summer months, and the Gentleman was adamant that the 52,500 miles that are recorded on the odometer when we purchased it are all that the car has covered since it was new.
- Due to the Gentleman spending more time abroad in his retirement the car has seen very little use in the last few years, and had apparently been stood idle in a garage for three years prior to our purchase.
- It appears that the car retains its original engine, and after a recent carburettor overhaul was carried out it seems to run very well. As the car has not been driven on the road the condition of the gearbox and rear axle are unknown, although the car does move in at least first and reverse gears.
- The car does require some restoration to get it back on the road. We feel that due to the overall adequate appearance of the paint and body work, the works could be carried out in stages so that the car can be enjoyed as a running restoration project. Initially, some repairs will be required to the sills and floor to get it through an MOT test as well as a thorough brake overhaul (the brakes are currently not working) and some suspension and electrical work. The interior is in good condition and will be easy to improve with a set of ready-made seat covers and carpets from one of the English classic Alfa Romeo parts suppliers. This list of required works is not all that is required and must only be used as a guide.
