BaT Exclusive: 1974 Alfa Romeo GTV Vintage Race Car

2/15/2012 Update: This Alfa has been sold

From 1/29/2012:

This 1974 Alfa Romeo GTV (VIN AR3023704) is a very well sorted and reliable vintage race car that has run SVRA, VRG and SCCA Vintage. It carries an SCCA Logbook dated 2001-2007, and when last raced in the 2007 at the SCCA Historic event at the Watkins Glen Long course, this car won both Saturday and Sunday races in HRG3 with a fastest lap time of 2:20.4. It s been covered and stored in a dry garage since. Be sure to check out the video below of the car in action, as well as the list of high quality components throughout the build.

It is available in Boston, Massachusetts for $29,500.

The car is built on a rust free shell with fiberglass front fenders and nose and an 8-point cage. It weighs just under 2,000 lbs. without driver. The seller tells us that the car has never been for sale, frankly since the 70 s.

 The drivetrain consists of a Schwitters close-ratio gearbox, an aluminum flywheel with Tilton 7.25 clutch, a balanced drive shaft, and a de-cambered, 4-plate LSD, 4.56 rear end. The suspension incorporates Ward Dean springs sway bars, a Watts link rear end (this was the prototype now sold by Performatek), spherical ball joint trailing arms, and dropped front spindles with bump-steer spacers.

Two sets of tires and wheels are included: 7 15 Compomotive wheels with Hoosier R6 and 6 14 Pannasport wheels with Hoosier rains. Brakes have been modified with 50mm piston VW front calipers and bias is adjustable in the cockpit.

The seller provided the following video, shot by a fellow GTV racer who chases him for many laps at The Glen. The car looks great in motion!

An OMP fiberglass seat, Lexan side and rear windshield and fire system are visible in the interior shot below. High quality wiring with circuit breakers occupies the custome tunnel console to the driver s right, and a fuel cell sits low in the spare tire well. An AIM sportline data acquisition system logs TPS, EGT, O2, Lateral G s, lap

times, Speed, RPM, Brake pressure, and voltage. The dash unit displays RPM, lap times and lap number. It has also been programmed with warning lights for RPM, high EGT and lean mixture.

The 2-liter engine build consists of the following:

Balanced crank, rods, pistons, pulley, flywheel clutch

Carrillo rods

12.25:1 compression JE pistons

Intake cam 272 deg duration at 0.050 lift a little over 13mm total lift

Exhaust cam is 254 deg duration at 0.050 lift and almost 12mm total lift

Windage tray w/sump baffles.

46mm intake valves w/8mm stems, exhaust valves w/8mm stems

4-into-1 headers, custom 2 exhaust with two tail pipe options. (to satisfy sound requirements at various tracks)

Custom throttle bodies with 45 mm butterflies, air horns Pipercross air cleaner

Custom Spica fuel injection

Cockpit adjustable mixture (aka choke)

3 quart Accusump

Oil cooler

Remote oil filter

The seller tells us that the Crank Fire ignition system legal for SCCA Vintage, but when he has run with SVRA and VRG they bump him a class. Fuel injection hasn t been an issue as it s derived from the stock Spica system.

Ownership history is as follows:

1974-1979 private owner in South Carolina


1979 bought at auction by Paul Glynn

1979-2000 In Storage

2000-2012 owned by the seller and built into the race car pictured
