GTV V6 purchase quandry...
I've just seen a very low mileage, seemingly good condition GTV V6. However, the history is limited at best. It's a 2002 model with 34K miles, first service by main Alfa dealer after a year and 9K miles.
After that it has been serviced by a non-franchise dealer (not Alfa specialist either) twice, most recently about five months ago. However, the book is not stamped and there are no itemised bills, although the seller says it should be possible to get a copy of the last one.
The Cam Belt has NOT been done. The body work is in fair condition, all alloys are marked as it seems to have been a town car.
Would anyone be worried about buying one these that has done predominantly short town journeys?
Would the lack of history matter/concern people in the long run if I brought the car fully up to date now with a major service and cambelt change at an Alfa specialist?
Any other things I sould look for?
