This is one of the most wanted Alfa of the sixties, painted in one of the best shade available: it is called “Giallo Ocra” (Ochre yellow)and it comes with the car along with a good amount of rust.
Maybe this car (chassis #AR252882) has lived most of its life in the rust belt but for sure it has several rust spot and we suppose that under the paint there will be a nightmare for the new owner: the seller himself says that the car has a great rust issue but, at the end of the day, it’s still a GTV.
To be honest, these cars have rust problems even if they have lived in a dry region; in that time the steel used by Alfa was not the best available and every classic Alfa owner knows that. On the other side, the car has a very original look: everything is correct and in its proper place: we don’t know if the engine is a correct type 536 but there aren’t any apparent reasons to believe otherwise: we’re pretty sure that this car won’t come cheap. Find it for sale here in Imperial, MO, with bidding at $1,500 and reserve not met.

Up to 7600 with 6 days to go! Yeah, it’s a scalino Giulia GT but it will need quite a bit of love. The biggest concern is rust location. If rockers are affected, and they usually are, this will becomequite a major resto.
I think this will be a major resto anyway. The point is about how high will be the winning bid
I’m in the process of restoring a ’74 GTV and I can tell you that this thing will need both rockers and inner sills replaced. Mine looked even better than this but when I cut away the rockers I found that the sills had completely rusted through on both sides. It’s nice that the car comes with some repair panels since those are definitely needed and the spare tire well looks like it will have to be replaced too. It would be nice to have some more detailed pictures of the doors, specifically the bottoms because they will probably need repairing as well. With that negativity out of the way, these are bad ass little cars and parts aren’t hard to find so if the price stays reasonable I think it would be an awesome project! Just be aware of how much work will be required…and ditch the luggage rack😀.
