1974 Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV

1974 Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV

A friend of ours, Mark Daddio, found this Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV in storage where it had been sitting for three years. It’s was last registered in 1983, as far as we can tell, has 69,000 original miles and it has had quite a bit of bodywork, including a high-quality paint job.

Unfortunately, it was purchased without quite a few parts, including glass and trim. We’ll be sorting through the boxes that it comes with to see what exactly is missing, and Per is going to take it racing.
