Huntington Beach, CA, United States

more than 10 years old restoration.  Normale car with Veloce set up ( dual weber carburetors and veloce header).   5 speed conversion using GTV gearbox. Engine has blank serial number.   It has been known that these blanks are dealer replaced engines.    It is the correct 750 series engine 1300cc for this model year.    It still has the original alfa Radio that is still working.   It is an older restoration so I  would not call it a show car, although i show it regularly at cars and coffee in irvine.   It is safe to called it a more than excellent weekend driver.    I have owned the car for 1 year.     The previous owner owns a ferrari restoration shop and restored this car in his shop.    I have a folder full of service receipts from previous owner, and also many services receipts under my ownership.   ODO shows 59k miles but i am not sure if original.

Paint in exellent condition, no nick, scratch, chip anywhere on the exterior.  The luster is still like new paint.   Paint on door jams are just average, but in good condition, it is not in show condition like the exterior.   Paint on dash board looks like original red factory paint, but i am not sure.     Paint in engine bay is in excellent condition, but not in show condition,  along the jams of the engine bay where the hood is resting on, the paint is not as shiny, but in average fair condition.  The underside of the hood lid is original alfa red crinkled paint.

No rust any where.  The underside looks very clean,  The paint from the restoration still clean underside the body with no dirt or rust build up.    There is one sign of rust repair near the transmission tunnel, but minor.    I would say this car was an excellent car before it was restored.    

New convertible top, New Veloce Exhaust Header, and Exhaust system  from Centerline

Engine runs strong, no smoke.   Transmission has been converted to 5 speed with alfa GTV gear box.   All synchros are good, no grinding.    Engine does leak oil here and there.   

5 new vredestein classic tires.

Nardi wooden steering wheel in exellent condition.

Chromes are exellent.   There is one small dent to the rear bumper , and the seam next to it is misaligned  a little as shown in last picture.   If you are really picky you can pop it out and adjust the bumper so that the seam is perfectly aligned.  But it is fine right now and hardly noticeable.

This car is my love and joy for the last year.  I spent a lot of money and time to make it perfect.   I  recently got a rare 15k mile honda s800 that i put the engine together myself, and 2 motorcycles, so my hands and my garage are full, It is time to let someone else enjoys the car.   I just have a reasonable low reserve to cover most of what i put in.   You're welcome to come inspect the car in Huntington Beach, CA.

Just 45% of Fiat dealers are profitable, and they're angry about it

Mon, 07 Oct 2013 13:45:00 EST

On average, Fiat dealers have only been selling about 17 cars a month.
We've been wondering for some time how Fiat dealers in North America have been getting along with just one model range in their showrooms up until recently. Franchisees spent millions building, stocking and manning sleek new 'studio' showrooms, only to have but a single model to sell, the cherubic 500. And even with its many derivatives, the Cinquecento is still an inexpensive model with its attendant lower margins. Perhaps it should come as no surprise then, that just 45 percent of US Fiat dealers are said to be profitable.

Chrysler appoints new heads of Alfa Romeo and Ram

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 10:30:00 EST

Chrysler has announced to two key appointments to its senior leadership, both of them taking immediate effect. First up is Reid Bigland, who has been named head of the Alfa Romeo brand for North America. Bigland has served until now as head of the Ram Truck brand, a portfolio he now hands over to Robert Hegbloom, who had served until now as its director.
As a result of the appointments, both Bigland and Hegbloom will take up seats on Chrysler's NAFTA Leadership Team, and Bigland will also join the Fiat Chrysler Group Executive Council - the highest decision-making body in the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles empire.
As per Sergio Marchionne's leadership style, Bigland will continue to serve in two major capacities, maintaining his role as president and CEO of Chrysler Canada. Other senior executives who hold multiple key portfolios include Harald Wester (who serves as the group's Chief Technology Officer and also overseas Alfa Romeo, Maserati and Abarth), Olivier Francois (group Chief Marketing Officer and head of the Fiat brand) and Michael Manley (head of the Asia-Pacific region and the Jeep brand).

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles: The next five years

Tue, 06 May 2014 19:15:00 EST

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past 24 hours, you've no doubt read about all of the big future product news coming out of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles today. We had individual brand reports from Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Maserati and even Ferrari, but in the interest of simplifying and summarizing, we're going to list out the hard facts once more. Of course, with all of this still off in the future, there's still the possibility that a few changes will be made. But as of what we know right now, here's what's coming, and what's going away.
