This original UK supplied matching numbers Alfa Romeo GT Veloce is not only the most original example we have ever come across, but also without doubt the very best we have seen in over 30 years in the industry. OYJ 451K has driven to us from Norfolk covering 200 absolutely faultless miles and arrives with us having covered a warranted 31,500 miles from new with a wonderful, detailed history to include original service book, early service invoices, MOT records and general maintenance invoices throughout its life.OYJ 451K was supplied new by Hamilton Brothers Limited of Glasgow Road Paisley on the 1st May 1972 to a Scottish gentleman of Italian descent, a Mr Seve Barbieri who kept the Alfa for an impressive 33 years, only selling the car in 2005 due to an end to his driving days. The cars first owner cherished the car and covered almost 23,000 miles during his ownership. The cars original service book records maintenance and stamps at 6424, 11150, 15574, 19977 and 22436 miles. Original Shell service reports from the 1970's are also on file at 752, 2987, 6424 and 9491 miles.
During the later years with its first owner, the Alfa was maintained by the Chairman of the Scottish section of the Alfa Romeo Club who also owns Alfa Specialists CP Garage Services in Dundee. To this day, they still specialise in the service of Alfa Romeos and have an excellent reputation built on word of mouth within Alfa Romeo Club circles. In 2005, the very man, the Alfa Romeo trained proprietor of CP Garage Services purchased the car for himself and owned it until 2014 having taken the mileage to 29,000, service book stamped at 27505 with four other services also recorded by CP Garage Services. The Alfa was then purchased by a London based collector and enthusiast with a collection of first class, highly original low mileage cars.
It was in early 2015 the Alfa Romeo was sent to Alfa Supremo Ian Ellis for a full evaluation and £10,000 of work was carried out on the car to include new tyres, re-furbished wheels, re-conditioned starter motor, rebuilt cylinder head, engine mounts, new clutch, front and rear brake pads, lower ball joints and wishbone bushes, boot seal and boot mat set. The cars London owner later sold the car for it then to be maintained by Alfa specialists Automeo for its next owner who fitted two new weber carburettors and new ignition items, valuing the car at £65000 in 2021 and stating it was corrosion free and the best example they had worked on in 30 years as Alfa specialists. Having regretted selling the car, the London based collector who purchased the Alfa in 2015 bought the car back in 2021 and the car now comes to us after minimal use on fine days only with just 31500 miles from new.
This incredibly correct car is truly sensational and remarkably original, a perfect purchase for the discerning collector with its superbly documented full history and warranted low miles. The Cava Beige paintwork is of an excellent standard and the bodywork first class with exceptional original straight panels and structurally outstanding underside having had Ziebart injection treatment in its early life. The largely original upholstery is impressive, as is the well-presented engine bay. This early GTV 2000 displays its Tipo 105.22 and Bertone body number stampings on the boot scuttle, retains its original manufacturers rear window sticker and of course retains its impressive unrepeatable early history. This unrestored car is equally impressive on the road as demonstrated on its 200-mile drive here, it feels tight, responsive, rattle and shake free and offers and first class driving experience with its top quality low mileage running gear. This is a true collector's piece and offers a unique opportunity to own one of the very best original examples in existence.
