Transmission: 5 Speed Manual
Alfa Romeo chassis number AR 2410682 is the 434th RHD Tipo 105.22 Giulia 2000 GTV produced in 1972, the year of the model's launch. Registered to its first owner on 1st May 1972 in Dundee, Scotland it was fully Zeibart injection rust protected from new with the familiar injection caps present around the body and the manufacturer's sticker still present in the rear screen.
The first owner, a Scottish gentleman of Italian descent, used his GTV sparingly and maintained a full maintenance history for nearly thirty-three years until he was no longer able to drive due to ill health. Prior to parting with his beloved GTV the car had been maintained by Euan Colbron, chairman of the Scottish section of the Alfa Romeo Owners Club. Euan ran and still runs CP Garage Services in Dundee to this day, specialising in the service of Alfa Romeos, mainly by word of mouth to many AROC members. It was therefore fitting that he purchased the car from the first owner on 20th March 2005. When he took over the car it was accompanied by documented service history from day one. To this was added a covering letter summarising the servicing details and intervals and confirmation of the mileage to that point of just 22,751 miles. Euan kept the GTV until 4th July 2014 when it was purchased by only its 3rd private owner from new. This owner has a small but very high-quality Alfa centric collection of Italian cars, all highly original. During his ownership of OYK 452K he decided to sell it to a specialist dealer, however he almost immediately regretted his decision and bought it back a short while later and has retained it to date. It is only available today following the acquisition of something slightly more exotic from the same marque.
Today this early 2000 GTV represents what is probably a unique opportunity to a connoisseur, just 29,000 documented miles, 3 registered keepers, highly original, unrestored, completely original interior too â€“ seats, door cards, rear quarter panels, headlining, carpets, perfect dashboard. The boot scuttle also displays the Tipo 105.22 and Bertone body number stampings.
This GTV drives like only an unrestored car can, tight, compliant, rattle and shake free, tight door and window shuts, just like it left the factory. Remarkable. Full mechanical overhaul completed by Alfa 105 specialist Ian Ellis less than 500 miles ago, so great compression and eager performance from the stock two litre engine fuelled by its two twin choke Solex side-draft 40 carburettors. At the same time Ian Ellis cleaned and re-protected the underside with a good but thin covering of Dinitrol rust protection to ensure she is protected for the next 49 years.
We believe this is the best example of a RHD 2000 GTV you will find, bar none. Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss this unique opportunity further.
