1971 Alfa Romeo GTV

Produced between 1963 and 1976, Alfa’s lovely Giulia GTV Coupe was one of the most widely adored versions of the popular and versatile Giulia line. Based on a shortened Berlina platform, the coupe featured unique styling designed by the brilliant Giorgetto Giugiaro for Carrozzeria Bertone. The coupe shared its mechanical makeup with the Berlina and Spider, including coil-sprung suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and five-speed gearbox. Alfa’s iconic twin-cam inline-four was offered in various displacements ranging from 1300 cc to 2000 cc with twin carbs or Spica mechanical fuel injection. Equally at home cruising the interstate as it is tearing up back roads, the GTV’s combination of practicality and performance makes it the ideal all-round classic for driving enthusiasts.

This crisp and attractive 1971 Alfa Romeo GTV is a wonderful example of the long-running Giulia coupe line. This US-spec GTV 1750 features the 1750 cc version of Alfa’s brilliant twin-cam engine, equipped from new with Spica mechanical fuel injection and a 5-speed gearbox. The beautiful Bertone designed body is in excellent order, with sharp lines and very good quality silver paintwork. Lenses and bright exterior trim are in good condition, with straight bumpers, alloy window surrounds, and four-headlight grille. Correct steel wheels are fitted with original hubcaps and Pirelli (of course!) tires and an Abarth exhaust has been fitted to give the sporting Twin-cam Alfa just the right sound.

The four-place cabin is comfortable, airy, and a marvelous place to spend a day of spirited motoring. The black vinyl trim is in excellent condition having been recently restored with new upholstery throughout. The dash features original Jaeger gauges, a period Blaupunkt AM/FM radio, correct original steering wheel, and lovely wood dash inserts. The console houses the classic angled-shifter for the 5-speed ‘box, which is topped with a factory-correct shift knob.

The engine is eager and revs freely, and paired with a gearbox that is positive and smooth in its operation, the car exudes confidence during spirited driving. With punchy performance, balanced handling, excellent brakes, and sophisticated styling by the masters at Carrozzeria Bertone there’s no wonder the Alfa GTV is one of the most beloved driver’s cars of the era, and this exceptionally well-sorted example is perfect for carving up your favorite ribbons of tarmac.
