FIRST - WHY AM I SELLING? I am about to turn 71, and according to my doctor - my back is shot! Just sold off my
MG-B, and my MG-TD. Now it is the Alfa. Shortly it will be my Porsche 944 S2; my Fiat Multipla; and my Nash
Healey,,,,, I am at that age where (I can't believe I am about to say this) - I NEED A BUICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OMG!
So, the cars are going and need to sell. PAINT: Repainted – see details below.
CHROME: Rechromed – see details below.
ENGINE: Rebuilt – see details below.
This car was originally imported into the United States by an American service man stationed overseas. It stayed
in his family, passing to his brother-in-law, who sold it to me. It was taken off the road by the previous owner
around 1998 to undergo a restoration. The gentleman I bought the car from is now quite elderly and was not able to
provide me exact dates on some of the work, but I feel the dates below are fairly accurate.
Between 1998 and today the following work has been done. The car has less than 1,000 miles on it since it was put
back in running condition.
ENGINE: The engine was rebuilt some time in the mid 1990s – it has less than 1,000 miles on it since the
rebuild.
OTHER MECHANICAL: Converted to a single wire alternator, and was converted from positive ground to negative
ground. All instruments/other wiring converted. Master cylinder rebuild by White Post, brake kit and front wheel
cylinders.
PAINT: The paint appears to have been done, in the original color, sometime around the same time as the engine –
mid 1990s. The paint today is bright and shiny – looks good. (As you might imagine, the car does have a chip or
two – see below).
CHROME: The previous owner tells me that he sent “all 62 pieces of chrome” out for rechroming. I find it hard
to believe the car actually has that many pieces of chrome – but it is clear that the chrome has been redone.
(there are two places where I find the chrome to be lacking: One is on the instrument bezels; and the second is
the hubcaps – the car could use a new, or rechromed set to be up to the standard of the rest of the chrome.)
INTERIOR: The seats have been changed for those of a later model Alfa. The previous owner said he did this
because the seats that were originally in the car were not adjustable, and the replacement seats from the later
Alfa are. Seats are in good condition. The carpet set looks amateurishly installed and has some wear spots
(please see the 3rd last picture) – it should be replaced at some point. Also, the shift boot is missing from
the bottom of the shifter. The glovebox door does not have a key – may need a new lockset.
BODY: The car does not have a top – it has the frame, but not the top. It apparently was in rough shape and the
previous owner discarded it, and I’ve never been inclined to actually go ahead and order one.
