1966 Alfa Romeo GTV/GTAm Racecar – SOLD

As featured on the TV show “My Classic Car with Dennis Gage” (season 12, episode 3) and in dozens of issues of “Vintage Motorsport” and “Victory Lane” magazines, this 1966 Alfa Romeo GTV racecar is generally accepted to be one of the fastest – if not the fastest – vintage Alfa production-based racecars in America; and it’s well-known amongst racing Alfisti as a beautiful, beautifully-prepared car that always runs up front.

A racecar since the early ’70s with logbooks to verify, this Alfa the first racecar built and campaigned by Barber’s Shop of Sacramento, CA, with Dave Jolly as the driver. The car then migrated east, settling in the Midwest where it was a regular fixture of the SCCA and Midwest Council racing scene. We acquired it in the late ’90s, and since then have continually developed the car into a regular race winner in SVRA and VSCDA. Since its last time on-track (The Kohler International Challenge presented by Brian Redman, 6th overall, 1st in class, 2:40.249 lap – the fastest ever for an Alfa on treaded tires at Road America), everything has been freshened/restored, from the running gear to the paint.

The body, featuring fiberglass GTAm flares as well as a fiberglass hood and decklid, was just repainted and is as nice as everything else about this car. All windows are lexan. Inside is an aluminum dash with all the requisite Autometer gauges and lights. Tilton pedals, masters and reservoirs are present, as is an Accusump, full fire suppression system, driver helmet A/C and Cool-Suit hardware.

A fresh, 200-horsepower 2.0 liter built by Mike Besic of Besic Motorsports (630/469-5626) is mated to a dog-box from Taylor Race Engineering (www.taylor-race.com, 800/922-4327) with a new clutch. Recently rebuilt, custom-valved Koni’s are at each corner. Big, secret-spec springs and bars work in conjunction with a Panhard rod and other hard-learned tricks to make this car capable of otherwise unthinkable moves such as outside passes in Road America’s “Carousel.”

This car has numerous poles and wins in the past few years, and always surprises the Porsche’s and Lotus’ that traditionally dominate its race group. If you want to go vintage racing in an Alfa and need to win (or vice-versa), this is the car.
