The GTV added three more ponies thanks to higher flow inlet ports, though subsequent revisions like the 1750 GTV escalated that number still. Fans have long praised these twin-cam engines for their free revving nature. Serious racers too.
This ’66 GTV still packs its happy engine, however the owner says in 1997 it began to be massaged into a GTA-styled track day car (the GTA road racer packed a twin-spark engine and aluminum body panels).
As such, this car has netted a racy four-point rally harness, performance clutch, Alfaholics suspension kit, Y-pipe headers, and Dynamat sound dampening underneath the carpet.
Of course, there’s a little bit of Alfa quirkiness. The passenger door handle no longer works and the glove box opens under hard acceleration…but somehow that’s part of the Alfa charm.
