One Pic Wonder: "Ran When Parked" Alfetta GT Project

It's not clear how current the single pic included with this ad is; but the car sure looked good at the time.  The seller claims this one was sidelined due to a failed u-joint; but now the car hasn't run in twenty years or so.  Given that, it'll have a few more needs; but may not be too bad?  Whomever takes this on will be rewarded with a high-revving, great-handling little hatch.  Sure, this isn't the later V6 model - or its rare Callaway twin-turbo spinoff - but this earlier car is lighter and should delights purists.

1976 Alfa Romeo Alfetta GT
Mileage: 66,496 mi.

Has not been on the road since 1996 -- believed to have broken driveshaft universal joint. Since then, it has been garaged the entire time and never exposed to the weather.

The bodywork (red) is in good shape, and very little evidence of rust. Interior (black) is OK, but not perfect. Front seats have decent sheepskin seat covers on them. 

Other features include a vintage Blaupunkt radio, "moon-roof," and the car was lowered slightly by the previous owner. It had a new clutch installed not long before the driveshaft failed and at that time, it started easily, ran very nicely and stopped well, and never overheated. It retains its original Spica fuel injection system.

In addition to a thorough freshening up, the car will require four new tires and more than likely a new battery, the fuel system will have to be cleaned out, etc. Steering wheel (not original) not included.

This car is being sold strictly "as-is." 

$2,200 or best offer.

  1. So no steering wheel, huh? Do we at least get a pair of vise-grips so we push it around? :-)
