  1. GTV At Auction

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    It reached £10,500. Auctioneer said it sold so I assumed it met the reserve, though I see the website now says unsold. I didn't get a detailed look, but the bodywork looked very good - just a bit of black paint peeling off the metal surrounding the door windows. Given me inspiration though - at...
  2. GTV At Auction

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Yes, after 22 years off the road I'd expect a long list for recommissioning. Without documentation(?) £11-13k sounds optimistic. If the weather is nice I might pop over.
  3. '74 2000GTV distributor 180 deg out of phase?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    From memory so happy to be corrected. Dizzy cap off and spark plugs out. Turn the engine by hand or rock it fowards while in gear. Watch down plug hole as valves open and close and piston strokes up and down. Stroke 1 - power, valves closed. Stroke 2 - exhaust, valve open on exhaust side. Stoke...
  4. Is it sell your (116) GTV week?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    4 or 5 overall, yes. But I've not seen 7 new uk (re)listings in a single week. With a couple of lhd and a SA import does that indicate anticipation of rising prices - or just a summer blip?
  5. Is it sell your (116) GTV week?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Seven on car and classic: https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/classic_cars.php?category=3&make=1&region=&country=1&era=&advert_type=&price=&keyword=&S.x=53&S.y=25&S=Search Plus on eBay £6k for an MOTd GTV6 sounds quite reasonable (bit of rust/bubbling)...
  6. who has an agreed value policy

    Alfa GTA
    Very helpful thread. So I'll be paying £15 & uploading 7 pics for agreed value with Flux.
  7. Decals, yes or no?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Less is more for me, particularly with those lovely chrome bumpers.
  8. Removing Plastic Engine Cover HELP!

    Alfa MiTo
    Just make sure you hold the plastic cover on either side of the rubber head as you pull it up. Taking the three, one at a time. If you pull from the far corner along from the rubber head in the middle (can't remember if that's the front or back) it is possible to crack the plastic cover. When...
  9. Project mito: halfway finished

    Alfa MiTo
    Looks pretty good, and more subtle than I imagined. Though the rear wing is bit much for my taste - I'm nearly 50 and prefer clean lines, such as on the original chrome bumpered (Alfetta) GTV over the plastic bumper and body kit on my later GTV. I've seen lots of criticism of the chrome on...
  10. Tyre pressures

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    For the original 195/60/15 it's 2.0 bar = 29psi. Not sure if it's different for those beauties though.
  11. Looking for a career change, what jobs in the classics industry?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    You've got plenty of options and some time to test them out, so go for it. From the experience of my friends and family (I'm the one with the steady job) it can be long hours for (relatively) little pay but if happiness is measured by job satisfaction rather than by bank balance it's worth it...
  12. Interesting Alfetta GTV project

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Ah, yes. Same seller in both adverts. The second advert says readvertised due to timewaster.
  13. Interesting Alfetta GTV project

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    eBay says the red GTV sold for £2,400 on 19 Feb. It was then advertised for £3,500 but went unsold at auction end on 8 Mar.
  14. GTV headlight washer needed

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi there, Patrick usually has lots of GTV6 parts. His phone number is in his adverts. Can't see headlight washers on this one, but worth trying him: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/alfa-alfetta-Gtv-Gtv6-Windscreen-Seal-1983-/152203362484?hash=item23700700b4:g:mBUAAOSwdzVXrgJx Triff
  15. Project GTV 2.0 (1984)

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Good luck Rich. Post pics so we can have a look. Mine has the Marelli dizzy so I had to disconnect the water pump hose to access the screws. Clips must be easier. To post pics, drag and drop below, or click Go Advanced rather than Post Quick Reply, then Manage Attachments. Triff
  16. Project GTV 2.0 (1984)

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Oh yeah, and I fixed the hand throttle, and replacing the brake light switch took forever.
  17. Project GTV 2.0 (1984)

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Is it really a year? I've made progress, though a house move took up much of my time and means the project is stored 20 mins away which isn't very convenient. Anyway, with a last push in the next week it should be ready to hand over to a friendly mechanic for a little welding and to replace a...
  18. National Alfa day at Chatsworth, who's going?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I'll be popping down in the Mito. Looking forward to seeing an Alfetta GTV to inspire me in a final push to get mine through an MOT.
  19. Driver's seat position

    Alfa MiTo
    One of my pet hates is mechanics who mess with the seat position. Ok, if they're 6'6" I can accept it on safety grounds, but otherwise surely they can manage for a few minutes of driving.
  20. Wiper Blades For Mito ?

    Alfa MiTo
    I'm happy with valeo. If you order online from Eurocarparts there are always discount codes available - pick up in store or by post.
