My barn find GTV?

Hello everyone, im new here and im new to alfa ownership, but i have alot of questions so i decided not to post in the newbie section. I am now the owner of a classic alfa GTV, im not sure of the year yet but i think its 1971-1972. It is a project car that i plan on doing a frame up restoration on. The problem is that i don't know much about alfas and this model. These cars are seldom seen here in canada and i had never payed them any attention until i saw this one in person and fell in love with its shape. It could be a GTA for all i know I Wish! The car is complete, and the only parts that are disasembled is the trim and the engine. The frame looks perfect, but there is extensive rust on a few of the body parts, especially the rear left fender and the front cowl. The car comes with a spare rear left fender (thank God) and also a spare engine. The original engine had weber carburettors, and the spare one has the fuel injection. I don't know what the interior looks like because its still filled with boxes. Its still has its original paint which is period Alfa Red.

Here are my questions:

Whats the difference between a GTV and a GTA and how hard would it be to clone the former into the latter?

How easy is it to find parts and are the prices reasonable?

What is the value of this car once restored?

Is it worth doing a frame up resto?

Which engine setup (webers or fuel injection) gives the most value to the car?

What are the typical problem spots for this car?

Whats the stock power output of the engine?

Whats the max power output that can be achieved with standard modification parts (and without reboring the crap out of it)?

Whats the redline on the stock engine?

Any other advice or information you think may help is welcome!

Thank YOU!

There are a few UK specialists where you may be able to source parts:

Creating a GTA Replica for the 21st Century | Classic Alfa Romeo spare parts and accessories

Classic Alfa Romeo Restoration, Sales and Parts in Sussex UK - Ian Ellis Classic Alfas

I think due to you being in Canada they'll be a lot of useful American information and contacts on AlfaBB.
