Sorry, i’m a huge fan... the are millions of rusty spiders in the world. This one will live in for a while.
Yup, agree. Late 70's /early 80's Alfas will never be "classics". Too many built, 5 mph bumpers, difficulty getting Spica past California emissions, ....
1. an electric motor where the diff is, grafted into the original axle (some shortening may be required)
2. Stick in a Dedion transaxle from a 116 car, hack the gearbox off and replace with a motor.
Batteries into the drive shaft tunnel, floor and lower front “trunk” to re establish balance
All that is significant engineering though.. so a plywood box full of batteries and something that bolts on where the motor went is a good compromise
Perfect is the enemy of finished and back on the road.
