This car is beautiful and drives great, right NOW. It is NOT perfect so let's get that out of the way now. It has an Oregon branded title. The branded title is the results of body damage at a time when the value of GTVs were low, The cost of repair exceeded the cars value at the time of damage. This was the fate of many Alfas just 10 to 15 years ago. The owner at the time took what the insurance company paid and his own money and had the car repaired properly. As near as I can tell the nose and part of  the right front fender were replaced. There is evidence of floor repairs and currently the floors are without rust. The overall condition of the body of the car is near perfect with some small surface rust bubbles near the right rear window just below the pillar badge. There is a windshield scratch on the passengers side that can be polished out. The side marker lights and bumper uprights have been remove for better cosmetics. There is a small area, about an inch, on the top of the rear seat that needs repair. Other than this the car is ready to drive now. Get in, start it and drive away.

Current top price for a perfect GTV is $35,000. This in not a perfect car but looks and drives like one. You can own it for far less than $35,000 and drive it the day it arrives at your house. You will of course have responsibility for transportation.

This car is has red performance springs and Koni shocks on all four corners.

replace old tires with 4 NEW TIRES!

I did not mention the Transmission because there is nothing to say except that it is smooth as glass.

I would buy this car myself (I'm selling this car for a friend who is eBay challenged) but I already have 4 GTVs and one is burgundy.

All recent work was performed by Veloce Motors in Oregon by a 1973 factory trained  certified Alfa mechanic.

Marchionne threatens to move Alfa production out of Italy

Fri, 12 Jul 2013 08:44:00 EST

Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne was unsurprisingly frank when asked by reporters about potential investments in Italian manufacturing for Alfa Romeo and Maserati, giving the Italian government the ultimatum, "Italy should decide if they want [Alfa Romeo's relaunch] to happen here or not as Fiat and Chrysler have several alternatives." Them's fightin' words.
Fiat's issue with the government stems directly from its courtroom clashes with the Fiom labor union. The two are currently embroiled in proceedings over longer shifts and shorter breaks, as Fiom has so far refused to sign a new contract citing revised labor laws that it says are anti-union.
According to Bloomberg, Fiat will be spending over $2.5 billion on development of eight new Alfas and six new Maseratis, in a bid to wrest some of the luxury pie away from BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi. But that's only going to happen if the government is willing to play ball and make life easier on Fiat.

Fiat set to invest $12B on new models, stop Euro losses in 3 years

Mon, 09 Dec 2013 18:00:00 EST

Naturally, you'd expect a massive automaker like Fiat to have an in-depth plan to exit the current European-market doldrums, and you'd expect that plan to include plenty of new vehicles to attract those precious buyers that still remain despite the financial downturn. And you'd be right, though Fiat does seem to have a few unexpected twists up its corporate sleeve.
Perhaps the biggest shocker is a report that Fiat will completely drop the Punto, a car with mass-market appeal aimed at small-car buyers cross-shopping the popular Volkswagen Polo. Its replacement will be a five-door Fiat 500 aimed at upmarket buyers (sounds awfully similar to the 500L) that will be built in Poland. Lower-end customers will reportedly be served by variants of the Fiat Panda.
Borrowing a page from the BMW, Daimler and Volkswagen playbook, reports Automotive News, Fiat is said to have plans to reignite production at its Italian factories by retooling them to build high-end vehicles from Maserati and Alfa Romeo. These will be marketed as premium products, built by skilled Italian workers (who are paid wages that are 75-percent higher than those building Fiats in Poland), and will be sold around the world.

Fiat Chrysler target 850k sales in China by 2018

Sun, 11 May 2014 12:15:00 EST

Behind the vanguard of numerous Jeep models, two Chryslers, a smattering of Fiats and Alfa Romeos and local production through a joint venture with Guangzhou Automotive Group (GAG), Fiat Chrysler wants to increase sales in China more than six-fold by 2018. The group sold 130,000 cars in China in 2013, the aim for 2018 being 850,000 cars.
Ultimately it's expected that the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Cherokee, Wrangler, Renegade, the coming Grand Wagoneer and a sub-Renegade-sized crossover will either be built in or exported to the People's Republic. The Chrysler Town & Country and 300 will join the export list in 2016 and 2018 respectively, according to a report in Automotive News.
With a number of those vehicles not in production or perhaps even envisaged yet, and others not due on the local market until 2018, it will be interesting to see how Fiat Chrysler plans to achieve the target in the specified timeframe. The joint venture with GAG builds two products now, the Dodge Dart-based Fiat Viaggio launched two years ago - supposedly designed just for China - and the just-launched Fiat Ottimo, a hatchback version of the Viaggio. Fiat projected 300,000 Viagio sales in its first two years, that number has been adjusted downward to 94,000 and there doesn't appear to be an analyst alive that sees a good future for Fiat in China's overrun mainstream market. Still, last year's 130,000 group sales in China is a huge jump from 2012 sales of 66,000 units, but less than half the 300,000 units it projected.
