x2Im sure its possible you would probably spend ALOT of money on it. Not just the logistical exercise of doing it but its the fine tuning to make a brilliant sports car the way it is at the moment that would take alot of effort.
:thumbs: Hi Fred. I pick up the Alfetta next week, as soon as the insurance cert turns up and I can get it taxed. A few more pics and info here :-Hi Nige ! congratulations on the V6 ! I always wanted a GTV6. So you have the current GTV and the V6 now ?
Do you have any more photos and whats it like ?
Oh thats great what does she drive like ? I always wanted to have a GTV6 as a second car.:thumbs: Hi Fred. I pick up the Alfetta next week, as soon as the insurance cert turns up and I can get it taxed. A few more pics and info here :-
Mechanically it seems pretty good and the body, although a bit scabby. has, I hope, only 2/3 areas where a bit of welding will have to be done. The plan is to use it until the New Year when it will then go into the body guy for a full tart up. Can't wait !
Yep, I'm a two GTV owner now !
What have I done..............:wow:
Not driven it much Fred but it's about what you would expect from a 27 year old car. The engine is glorious and nice rwd handling. ( Watch out ditches, Nige is coming ! ) You can't call the gearchange slick, you never could on these transaxle jobbies but you soon get used to it. Then there is the driveline vibration, a bit more than I remember from my Alfetta Saloon. Perhaps I can improve this a tad with balancing and new doughnuts, we shall see.Oh thats great what does she drive like ? I always wanted to have a GTV6 as a second car.
I remember test driving one when they were brand new with my dad and it is still one of the most Amazing cars ive ever driven to this day ! At the time they were $25,000 Aussie Dollars which was ALOT of money in those days think it was 1986 or so. Ill always remember that drive the car was brand new and bright red and the engine had alot of power revved so freely and hard. It was so responsive like a motorcycle engine - and the Sound ! OMG was like nothing else.
I politely pleaded with my dad to buy it but sadly we both knew such an expensive toy was just not practical for our finances Ever since that test drive in 1986 I have always wanted one and will get one hopefully one day soon that will be a promise
I'm not a detractor, quite the opposite, but I think that the Sprint was ever so slightly better proportioned, particularly the rear quarter.:lol::lol::lol:
Out of interest then what do you detractors from this design think of the 'sud Sprint ? Very much a baby Alfetta GTV.

Splitting hairs here though - its Claudi Schieffer vs. Eva Herzogova ( or their 70's equivalents).
