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.

Episode #360 of the Autoblog podcast is here, and this week, Dan Roth and Jeff Ross discuss the 2015 Ford Mustang, reports of the latest plan to bring Alfa Romeo back to the US, Chevrolet leaving Europe and Holden closing down in Australia, and the price barrier that's holding down potential EV buyers. Dan also interviewed Jacques Brent, Ford's marketing manager for the 2015 Mustang and Sebastian Ruta and Joe Oh from Blipshift. We start with what's in the garage and finish up with some of your questions, and for those of you who hung with us live on our UStream channel, thanks for taking the time. You can follow along after the jump with our Q&A. Thanks for listening!
Autoblog Podcast #360:
Twenty-six years after it was introduced at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show, the much anticipated fourth generation Mazda MX-5 Miata will meet the press at the 2015 Chicago show. A piece in Autocar refines some of the details on the larger, lighter Miata that a Mazda insider has said will be "our best-looking car ever."
The company has relented on the quest for the metric tonne, the 1000-kilogram (2,200-pound) target too difficult to achieve in light of cost constraints. You can still expect it to lose a generous dollop of weight - Autocar says a curb weight of 1,100 kg (2,420 pounds) will still make it the lightest in its class. And Mazda will be stressing a fun driving experience through light weight and a modest amount of naturally-aspirated horsepower. Engine capacities of 1.5 and 2.0 liters are expected. Sounds familiar (and good), right?
The Miata's interpretation of Kodo design will be veer from that found on the Mazda3 and Mazda6, with "very clean and simple" lines marking out "more muscular proportions" and elongated bodywork on a longer wheelbase. A stretched engine bay will make room for the current Skyactiv engine and perhaps the future Skyactiv 2 powerplants, initial reports suggesting there could be a 30-percent increase in fuel economy from the moment it arrives.
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.
