Alfa Romeo GT V6 For Sale
(UPDATE: September 2020 – SOLD, Thank You!) Purchased in 2017 by current owner from ‘Mid-Century Motoring’ in Buchanan, NY. Odometer reading at that time was 18,920 miles. Today the car shows 20,633, although true miles are unknown. The owner has 10 cars in his collection, he’s moving from New York to Florida and can’t take them all with him, so he brought us his GT V6 to sell.
According to ‘Mid-Century Motoring’s’ description of the car’s history (follow this link to that information, still on their website) the car was purchased as “a complete and remarkably solid bare shell.” And was then, “Lovingly rebuilt and refurbished by a local collector, the car was brought back to its original spec in 2012.” According to Mid-Century Motoring, cost of the work is said to have been “nearly $20,000.” Work included new ‘Nero’ (AR 913) paint and the reinstallation of the original cloth / velour pinstripe interior.
During the five years between 2012 and the current owner’s acquisition in 2017 the car was maintained and ‘completely sorted throughout’ at ‘Dominick’s of White Plains, NY. The transaxle is said to have been rebuilt during that time.
Today, the car remains in very solid, presentable condition and is great fun to drive. The exhaust system is largely stock with an upgraded rear section by Ansa with twin tips, the exhaust note of this car, in any gear, at any speed, is fabulous. The clutch is strong, it shifts up and down through the gears smoothly and easily. It brakes straight and true.
Flaws include various rock chips (clearly pointed out in the 250+ photos available in a Flickr album… see below.) and some visible sanding marks and minor orange peel from the repaint. There is a slight exhaust rattle, a missing hanger underneath. The sills, floors and frame are rust free, but showing some road dirt acquired along the back roads of the Finger Lakes Region. There is no rust repair evident underneath and no visible rust on the car beyond some light surface rust on some of the suspension components. Jack points are solid. There is one, small rust hole in the spare tire well next to the drain holes. The manual sunroof opens and closes, but scrapes very slightly when operated.
The car resided in California from at least the early 1990s until 2007 when it was moved to Georgia (the car’s license plates from those states are with the car), it arrived in New York in 2012. The Carfax shows an accident with passenger’s rear corner damage in Georgia in April of 2009, before the refurbishment and repaint.
This car presents well, the interior is in excellent condition and it’s great fun to drive on the back roads.
