Post 75 or Alfetta GTV
I am confused and wanted to ask your opinions.
What would you prefer? Both of them are going to be hardly restored and both of them are 3 liter 12 valve (GTV's engine has been changed.)

GTV for looks, but 75 as it is ;)

I like the 75 more
The GTV has only 2 doors and the drivers seat is too horizontal. Interiors not aging well.
Felt too vulnerable in our world of jacked up 4WD SUVs
the GTV's low steering angle made the wheel harder to turn as no power steering & little rear vision
very very few are not badly rusty, even over here. Most are really unsafe with pillars of bog & need a roll cage to go with 3L power.

So the Alfetta GTV for occassional use - the chrome bumper model looks fantastic - on the outside
the 75 for more regular use: LSDiff, 4 doors, better visibility, will last far longer, less of a poser.

just my 2d, daveb

These are all going to be weekend cars so safety is not a big issue for me.

I will use a 75 TS gearbox for both of them. I will because that is the most quick OEM setup. So I will have a 25% LSD in the box.

The bodies of the both cars are going to be restored so I don't think I will have any issues with rust for a long period if this bodywork and insulation of the body done properly.

The steering issue... I believe this will be an issue especially when this car has 3.0 12v beast standing on the front wheels but couldn't be any conversion like 75 power steering to GTV?

Yes the design of the Alfetta GTV; especially the 1st series with chrome bumpers are look fantastic to me but also 75 has a very nice look too.

Yes, I am still confused... :sos:

I've made my choice. If you want to DRIVE - I'd go for a 75. If looks are more important, then GTV.

Both of them are important but I think I will choose both...
