Footnotes

  • The first of Alfa Romeo's Bertone-styled coupés - the 1.6-litre Giulia Sprint GT - was launched in 1963. Mechanically the stylish new 2+2 was much the same as the Giulia TI sports saloon, featuring a five-speed manual gearbox, independent front suspension, coil-sprung live rear axle and disc brakes all round. A 1300 model - the GT Junior - arrived in 1966, and the range was further extended the following year by the launch of the 1750 GTV, the latter powered by a 1,799cc, 118bhp version of Alfa's classic twin-cam four housed in a four-headlamp version of the existing bodyshell running on 14" - down from 15" - wheels. A short-lived but nevertheless popular model, the 1750 GTV underwent a minor mechanical and styling revision part way through production before being replaced by the 2000 version in 1972. More powerful than the 1600 but sweeter running than the 2000, the 1750 is the choice of the Alfa Romeo enthusiast who knows their GTVs. Driver's cars par excellence in the Alfa tradition, Bertone's timelessly elegant Giulia coupés are among the most exciting sports saloons of the 1960s and today all versions are highly sought after.

    This 1750 GTV was built in right-hand drive configuration for the South African market and despatched to Johannesburg in October 1968. Restored in 2017 and first registered in the UK on 27th June 2019, the car has been treated to a 'top to toe' service by classic Alfa Romeo guru Richard Drake and is described by the vendor as in very good condition throughout, as one would expect from a car coming from such a dry climate. Noteworthy features include a Harvey Bailey suspension kit; replica GTA alloy wheels; and a limited-slip differential. Offered with manufacturer's Certificato di Origine, MoT to September 2020, and a V5C document, it represents a rare opportunity for the Alfa Romeo enthusiast to own one of these eminently collectible models.
