RetroMarques is pleased to offer for sale on behalf of the owner, this rare 1969 Alfa Romeo 1750 GTV – ‘YOY 28G’’...

A Tipo 105.45, Series 1 1750 GTV, which was originally registered in Kensington on 4 June 1969 and bought by a Mr Hall on 3rd October. The present owner is only the 6th and the 1750 has been with this AROC member for over 10 years, having been bought by him from the well-known Ian Ellis on 31st October 2004.

There is much to commend on this early Series 1 1750, including:

  • Engine rebuilt by Dave Hood in 2006 (but only circa 5000 miles since)
  • Original ‘flying buttress’ seats (both front seats some splits, rears good)
  • As-new carpets
  • Dash in very good condition with no cracks, good wood facings
  • Instruments all good (fuel gauge reading full but not expected to be a gauge fault)
  • Switches and controls all present and operating
  • Webasto sunroof
  • Good (steel) wheels and Pirelli tyres
  • All original badging
  • Good brightwork

An extensive history file accompanies the car including a book with hand-written notes by the owner for work done and items purchased, mostly from well-known Alfa specialists including Benalfa Cars, Coburn, EB Spares et al, and a DVLA printout showing the ownership history of the car and plenty of details from former owners.

‘YOY’ is driving strongly with very good oil pressure and strong, smooth power delivery, good steering and brakes. We note that synchromesh is weak on 3rd gear but the ’box otherwise appears fine and the Coupe is a very nice – and quick – drive with a lovely engine note, especially noted when blipping the revs for the double-declutch from 4th to 3rd gear!

The bodywork now needs attention but only in localised areas – mainly the sills and lower wings/wheel arches. The cross members appear solid, as do the floors and the boot area, so this is far from a full restoration and should be a rewarding project. Coupe values are climbing quite steadily and the early 1750 GTV is a very desirable model, so with the bodywork and some trim repaired YOY28G will be a worthwhile and economically viable project to complete. Finally, note that the original block accompanies the car, so we believe this remains a matching numbers GTV.

Price: SOLD
