Today's UCOTD is an Alfa Romeo GTV6 with just under 80,000 miles on the clock, coming to us by way of Rochester, New York.


The owner says it runs and drives well and has been well-maintained, has little or no rust, and is all original except for an aftermarket exhaust.

If old Italian hatchbacks are your thing, this Alfa could be right for you.

Click here to check it out, the seller is asking $15,500.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.

    I've always thought that was a great bodystyle...

      Practical for sure, I just find something off in the looks department. I'd drive it though

    I drove an 81 GTV6 in college around '89. It was a fabulous dependable car and pulled a LOT of attention. I just wasn't gonna be the guy to neglect it and dealer service (stuff like inboard brakes) was just too expensive. Had a couple years traded for a CRX Si. Have dailied two other Alfas 1972 Gtv2000 w spica and an 87 Milano. Only the Milano ever left me stranded blown clutch slave cylinder. They were all such fun cars

  • GregLocock Not interested at all. Apparently I've got Apple car play but I've never used it in 3 years. The built in nav is ok.
  • Corey Lewis Probably worth about what they're asking, given its condition. The color combo isn't a desirable one, they look sharper in non-beige shades. Like two-tone green, maroon, navy, or gray. The end of the time when MB built its cars properly. No shame in turning up in a clean W126, they'll always command respect.
  • Lou_BC Another way to look at this is the upgrading of hardware and software. ...............The average length of car ownership is 10 - 12 years ....................The average lifetime ownership of a cell phone is 2.5 years. ................................................................... My phone will remain up to date, my vehicle won't. Especially if you buy a new "end of run" model.
  • TheEndlessEnigma "...we could be seeing a foundational shift in how Americans and car buyers see Stellantis products." yeah, I view Stellantis products as being off the cross-shop list. Stellantis is doing an excellent job of killing the Chrysler and Dodge brands and turning Jeep into something it isn't.
  • 2manyvettes 495 hp in a base C8 is more than enough. 800+ hp in a ZR1 is not worth the extra $60k (plus dealer markups). Unless the buyer is going for bragging rights. I remember when the C7 Grand Sport came out, and a reviewer got his hands on one and put it on the track at Lime Rock. His conclusion? Save yourself $15k and skip the Z06 and get a Grand Sport.
