Alfa Romeo 1750 GT Veloce 1968 (F) White
Launched in 1963, the first of Alfa Romeo's 105's coupe's featured classically stylish coachwork designed by Bertone's Giorgetto Giugiaro and was produced at Alfa's new factory at Arese on the outskirts of Milan. Beneath the skin the new two-door 4 seater Coupe was Alfa's beautiful light alloy twin overhead camshaft four-cylinder engine in various sizes, a five speed manual Gearbox, independent front suspension, coil-sprung 'live' rear axle and disc brakes on all four wheels.
The 1750 GT Veloce entered production in late 1967 and introduced many updates and modifications, most significantly the engine capacity was increased to 1779 cc increasing the power to 120 bhp.
According to Alfa Romeo Heritage museum's Certificato Di Origine, this Alfa Romeo 1750 GT Veloce - Chassis No: AR 1450223 was manufactured in Alfa Romeo's factory in Arese, Milan, Italy on 17th May 1968 and was an original RHD car that was shipped to Manama, Bahrain on the Persian Gulf on 24th May 1968.
Nothing is known of its early history, but it was repatriated from Bahrain back to the UK some 20 or so years ago and placed in dry storage. It resurfaced in 2017 when it was acquired by the current Italian owners and whilst in very sound condition, it was refinished in its original colour scheme of Bianco Spino with a new retrimmed Skai Nero Black leather interior with S2 Seats, new Black carpets, new headlining, original interior fittings and wood-rimmed Steering Wheel, 1779cc Twin Cam Engine, Five Speed Gearbox, S2 Stainless
Steel Bumpers, Disc Brakes on all 4 wheels and 14" Steel Wheels with original stainless steel hub caps and 4 new tyres.
It does have some later Series 2 fittings like the bumpers, seats and new twin brake servo units replacing the original single servo unit, as some GTV purists will note, but these are easily changed back if need be.
After completion of the re-commissioning, the car was given to us by the owners to prepare it for re-registration and sale on their behalf and we MOT'd the car and re-registered it with the DVLA on 1st October 2018 and it was issued with the new period number plate FNE 741F from 1968.
The car is clear on HPi, but with no history we are unable to confirm if the mileage indicated on the speedometer of 97,340 is genuine, but we are pretty sure it is. It is in very nice condition overall and although not perfect, it certainly is mechanically excellent and drives beautifully with all the fun and characteristics of these lovely twin-cam engines.
The car will come with a new MOT and our own 6 Month Mechanical Warranty and at this price, it really is exceptionally good value for money and it will of course only appreciate in value!
