This is a very rare opportunity to acquire one of the lowest mileage, original & unrestored Alfetta GTV6's in existence. This car has had a very pampered life and comes complete with a very comprehensive history file going right back to new including the original book pack. She was bought new by renowned golfer Bernard Gallacher on the 1st of December 1982 who ran her as his daily transport for just 11 months during which time she covered about 8000 miles. Following this she had two long term owners until I acquired the car for the first time in 2006 with just 18,000 miles recorded. Having spent the previous 8 years unused I set about going right through her and fully recommissioning the car for sale, knowing at the time that much as I would have liked to I could not afford to keep her. So, the prop shaft was removed, stripped and rebuilt with all new couplings etc, new rear brake callipers were fitted along with all the hoses being replaced with braided stainless items and a new master cylinder fitted. Again all the hydraulics and hose for the clutch were replaced. Then attention was turned to the engine which had all the fluids changed, a new water pump fitted and new cam belt. Finally 4 new tyres went on. The new owner kept her for about 2 years or so and put on 10,000 summer miles as he enjoyed using her so much before deciding she deserved an easier life so bought another more 'used' example to drive and, realising this one would be better suited with a new owner to carry on her care, sold her on in 2009. Thie next owner subsequently looked after her for the next 5 years until he offered back to me and I bought her for myself, this time with the intention to keep her long term. To that end I carried out the following works over the winter of 2014/2015 so she would be ready for me to take to a few shows this summer:

1. Detailing of engine bay including cam covers & plenum, rebuilding of cooling fans into powder coated housings & fresh sticker set.

2. Replace all fluids & filters.

3. Fit new spark plugs.

4. Steam clean underside then leave to dry out for a week before cavity waxing with Dinitrol 3125 & under body sealing.

5. Refurbishment of road wheels & replating of wheel nuts.

However, a very major and unforseen family issue earlier this year has led me to re-evaluate my 'need' to have quite so many cars that I don't have time to use & a yard full of waiting projects. Therefore it is with great reluctance that I am having a cull of my fleet and letting her go to a new home. I am in no hurry to sell, rather wanting to know she is going to a good home where she will be kept in the way she has become accustomed, so if you have aspirations of turning her into a daily driver don't call!

She is supplied with her original Pioneer stereo, tool roll & jack, book pack with owners manual, stamped service coupon booklet, various sales invoices, bills & invoices for work & parts and several letters between old owners, all her old MOT's from her years on the road  & numerous old tax discs. She will also have a fresh MOT upon sale.

This really is a one off opportunity to purchase one of these iconic coupes with such a fine provenance and low mileage. These cars a rare to find on the market at all these days in any condition let alone in original order like this. With values of the GTV6 having doubled in the last 12 months this is the time to grab one of the finest and most underated cars of it's era.

Viewing welcome, please call.
