Running and driving project Alfa Romeo! Recently acquired from the original owner. Sold new at J. Dunn Imports in Walnut Creek on 11/1/1975. Original color was straw but was repainted gray in 1987 around the same time the interior was redone. Roll bar and rear seat belts were installed when the car was near new. Pioneer Supertuner stereo was installed a long time ago and still works. Softtop was replaced in 1987 and currently has a bad rear window.
The car currently has about 163k miles on it. I have the complete maintenance history back to new. It spent time being driven and then being stored and back to being driven. Each time it was removed from storage it had many mechanical repairs like brakes, fuel system etc. As far as major repairs I have seen going through the receipts, the engine was overhauled in 1997 at 158,567 miles and the transmission was overhauled at 162,664 miles in 2014. The brake system was gone through in 2019 at 162,809 miles. This service included: calipers, pads, hoses and rotors. Brakes work fine.
Being a Bay Area car since new, the body is pretty clean with some bubbles at the bottom of each rocker (see pics). Interior is functional but will obviously need work at some point. All gauges seem to work. Windows roll up and down. Horn works. Once warmed up the car runs good but does backfire on deceleration. This is likely caused by the fact that the fuel cutoff solenoid is not hooked up due to, what I believe, is a bad microswitch? Transmission and clutch feel great.
All in all a good project car. Currently registered and titled with a clean California title. This car does not require smog testing.
