Well sorted Restored 1988 Verde

The time, effort and money put into this Verde was with the intention to keep it. Well, life changed. About 126,000 miles.

Make me a reasonable offer.

Here is a link to the restoration, which included paint, rust repair, deletion of sunroof, jack point covers and front bumper sprayers. The antenna was moved to the roof. New windshield as well.

Wanted to share my Verde restoration

List of work done (I will probably update this list as I remember more things)

-Seats and headliner recovered
-New timing belt, water pump, tensioner, all belts, clutch slave.
-S cams
-Stiffer front torsion bar
-2nd electric fan that turns on with A/C.
-A/C recharged and converted
-Starter relay added
-Cooling fan re-wired to turn off with temperature, so it will stay on for a little after you turn the car off.
-Front window regulators taken apart and re-greased. All windows work.
-Transaxle rebuilt with new syncros.
-Drive shaft rebuilt with all new rubber, also middle stiffening plates
-Lowering springs on rear
-Koni shocks all the way around
-Poly bushings on front and rear
-Bulldog keyless entry system with trunk release. I added an actuator in the trunk.
-Most interior lighting replaced with LED's, and the dash looks great with them.
-New exhaust from cat back.
-EURO headlights. The headlight and corner lights have a clear bra on them


I'm sure something is missing, but I will start here.

Oh yes, I just remembered. The ABS has been removed. Recent service also included cap, rotor and spark plugs.

This is a turn key car. I have spare parts if interested as well.

Colorado

The Car is located in Denver, Colorado.
The ABS braking system was replaced with the non-ABS version. Because of this, the brake light on the ARC blinks. The ARC has been fixed thanks to a thread here on the BB showing how. The dash is cracked, which is typical. I will get more pictures soon.

It's summer time! Fly in and drive this Verde home. I would have no concern driving cross country. Make me an offer.

I bought Anto's Carabinieri Platinum. Great car, just as he described. If circumstances allowed, I'd take this in a heartbeat.

I got to inspect this car a few months ago, it was much nicer than the photos suggest. Really cool Verde, and I felt that the price was actually modest considering the condition and level of preparation.

Alfas first, then everything else.

Did it sell?

If so, for how much, if I might be so bold to ask. Am looking for one, researching prices. May be interested in yours if it still is for sale.
Thanks, and I apologize if I have done something stupid and missed where you said it was sold.

Still in Colorado

The Verde is still with me. I will send you a PM. Please contact me with any questions.

I have recently replaced the leather shift boot and re-grounded the switches to the windows.

Anthony,

The more I live with the Milano you sold me the more I like it! Makes me want to buy your 3.0 as well but I'd be sleeping on the curb if I did. Good luck though, wish you could keep it.

BTW, I mentioned a roof decal I was going to put add. Here it is.
