Old school classic Italian sports car. 4 cyl 120 hp, 5 speed manual avg 25-28 mpg. Also known as a Poor Man's Ferrari. Wonderful and fun car to drive.
Been a daily driver for the last 2 years
The positives: Strong engine and transmission. Excellent brakes and new tires this past spring. New catalytic converter. CD radio.Looks good with decent paint in the correct Alfa Metalic Blue #370 only minor dings from regular use. Interior is decent and not torn up. Power windows work fine. Wipers work fine. Original seatbelts replaced with standard over the shoulder belts. Head lights, etc. work except for the turn signals.
The nagatives: The top is old and worn but useable. Should be replaced to make the car look really good. The turn signals stopped working, The air condition system is there and functions but will need an update and recharge. Speedometer dosent work, but the odometer trips the miles. Alternator is new a couple years ago and puts out 13.5 v , but the the volt meter on the dash does not read properly. Power mirrrors don't function and need to adjust mirrors by hand. Hand brake doesn't hold very well anymore. One of the trunk hinges came off so I use a support to hold trunk up.
The car has normal wear and tear reflecting regular use and age. Has approx 134,500 miles
If someone wants a nice car to drive and continue the restoration this is it at a fair price well below NADA book value.
I'll be glad to answer any questions.
Thanks for looking.
Note: If winning bidder does not want the car at the time of inspection and prior to delivery I will make a full refund.

Naturally, you'd expect a massive automaker like Fiat to have an in-depth plan to exit the current European-market doldrums, and you'd expect that plan to include plenty of new vehicles to attract those precious buyers that still remain despite the financial downturn. And you'd be right, though Fiat does seem to have a few unexpected twists up its corporate sleeve.
Perhaps the biggest shocker is a report that Fiat will completely drop the Punto, a car with mass-market appeal aimed at small-car buyers cross-shopping the popular Volkswagen Polo. Its replacement will be a five-door Fiat 500 aimed at upmarket buyers (sounds awfully similar to the 500L) that will be built in Poland. Lower-end customers will reportedly be served by variants of the Fiat Panda.
Borrowing a page from the BMW, Daimler and Volkswagen playbook, reports Automotive News, Fiat is said to have plans to reignite production at its Italian factories by retooling them to build high-end vehicles from Maserati and Alfa Romeo. These will be marketed as premium products, built by skilled Italian workers (who are paid wages that are 75-percent higher than those building Fiats in Poland), and will be sold around the world.
Although a little bit later than expected, Mazda and Fiat have signed a final agreement that will bring a next-generation MX-5 Miata to the Japanese automaker and a new roadster to Alfa Romeo. When the proposed arrangement was announced back in May, the two automakers had hoped to seal the deal last year, but it doesn't appear that the production timeline for these cars has slipped any, with both expected to start rolling off assembly lines in 2015.
Other than a shared chassis with a rear-wheel-drive layout, it sounds like the two cars are still planned to be distinct in their own ways from their styling right down to their engines. Mazda will produce both cars at a plant in Hiroshima, Japan, but it isn't clear what role each automaker will play in the cars' developmental process. The big question, of course, is what clever portmanteau name we can come up with, like Toyobaru. Mazda Romeo is the easy choice, but Alfazda might roll off the tongue a little better.
Scroll down for a brief press release from both automakers.
As a reporter covering an auto show, the one opportunity you never want to miss is going to the Sergio Marchionne press briefing.
"This undertaking to bring Alfa back is a one-shot deal... We are not going to do this twice."
There just aren't that many real characters left in the auto industry. Marchionne, who sits atop both Chrysler and Fiat, is not only one of the smartest execs in the business, but also the most frank. Herein, a sample of the quotable always-sweatered executive:
