This car has had an average of 400 miles a month during the summer, beauty of this car is it has been gone through mechanically and you can actually drive it reliably. No sense in having a toy if you can’t hop in it and confidently road trip it. If you have gone out and driven another Alfa that hasn't been sorted then you'll immediately notice the difference when you drive this one. Working blinkers, brake lights, marker lights, door chime, clock, tight steering and suspension, it's a nice car to drive.
The previous owner had an aftermarket head unit installed which has bluetooth connectivity, so you can get turn by turn directions, wireless music, and hands free phone calling while driving. The installation was done professionally and no speakers were replaced so no huge holes cut into various panels or wires strewn everywhere. Keeps a stock appearance while making the car usable and enjoyable.
Main reason why I originally bought the car is it has a clean Carfax (never wrecked) and there is ZERO rust on the body or undercarriage. Eat your heart out trying to find rust, it’s truly a miracle.
This is an honest little car, what you see is what you get. Paint looks nice but has the normal chips, scratches, and blemishes as you’d expect.
Would love to keep the car, however this is #2 and it doesn’t make sense to have a twin. These cars are going up in value, here’s a chance to buy an honest driver before they’re 15-20k. As I’ve found, the mechanical health of an Alfa is the expensive part, this one has already been sorted. I have a stack of roughly 3k in receipts from the last year that will go with the car along with the original owners manual. I can email the Carfax report to interested buyers.
No shipping, car must be paid for and picked up in person. Clean Alabama title in my name.
