Description

A rare opportunity to purchase an immaculate and original 1600 GTA Stradale, restored by Alfaholics.

Manufactured on 6th September 1965 and first delivered to the French Alfa Romeo importer, this GTA has spent much of its life in the dry climate of the south of France. It has been known to us since the 1990s through a long-term customer of Alfaholics. We purchased the car in 2012 and carried out a painstaking bare-shell rotisserie restoration to our exacting standards. Evidence of its privileged life soon became apparent, as we found remarkably little corrosion and even the original peraluman 25 panels were found to be in good condition.

Mechanically, the engine (AR00502/A block with original sand cast twin-plug head) has been uprated with Alfaholics forged pistons and sport road cams to give a strong and well-mannered 145bhp for fast road use. The gearbox and axle have both been rebuilt and an Alfaholics LSD fitted. The car sits on our fast road suspension kit with its original ultra-rare magnesium 6×14” GTA wheels fitted with Avon CR6ZZ tyres. These subtle upgrades provide a tremendous improvement to these GTAs, making them a delight for spirited road use, whilst also being competitive for road and rally events like Tour Auto.

The car comes with an extensive history file, it has its genuine original French market handbook (incredibly rare to still be with the car and in good condition) and a new unopened Alleggerita book set with serial number to match the chassis number of the car.

Since the restoration, the car has been used sparingly and looked after beautifully. It has just received a full service at Alfaholics.

Unquestionably this is one of the finest examples of a 1600 GTA Stradale in existence and a fabulous opportunity to purchase for the discerning GTA collector.
