Click to enlarge
Nice clean, well cared for car......53,000 original miles, excellent body and paint, red with black leather seats (nice patina, lightly worn but in great condition), runs and drives wonderfully, 65-70 psi oil pressure when warm on the highway, no smoke, excellent synchromesh (not unusual to find 2nd gear syncho worn and easily beaten), alloy wheels with new 185/70 Pirellis, power windows, a/c, stereo/CD, excellent cloth top, new exhaust, has boot cover, very clean engine bay and trunk, very solid floor (we did find a few spots that appear to have been professionally repaired and NO undercoating (primarily used to hide nasties).
All in all, a nice clean Alfa.
With its fuel injected, all aluminum DOHC engine, servo assist four wheel disc brakes, sophisticated rear axle location, these late model Alfas make wonderful touring sports cars. Sufficiently archaic as to have real character yet with lots of modern conveniences.
(I know. I own a nearly identical Alfa).
What a lovely car for the proverbial winding country road........if the power of a Ferrari seems merely academic, a sweet little Alfa makes for an exotic ride and at a difficult to beat price.
