88 Verde in Miami - accepting reasonable offers



Click here for pictures.

Accepting reasonable offers
Mileage is about 150,000.
4th owner, receipts from new. I bought it on the alfabb 6 years ago for my son. He traded it for my 71 Spider. I have space and my wife wants me to keep it, so I’m not forced to sell it. However, I have two other Alfas and I want to concentrate on the 105/115 models.

Based on the documentation, all the previous owners took very good care of the car. After purchasing, we immediately set out to fix and improve everything we could. We did most of the work ourselves. Anything out of my brain range or tool availability was taken to Alfa mechanics. The car came from Texas. It has been stored indoors since I bought it. No rust and straight. Clear Florida title.

In the link to the pictures, I included a screenshot of all the scanned receipts from 2012 to present and a picture of the original 2012 ad. I’m probably missing some, but most are there. I can print or email those to the new owner.

The link is definitely working. I just tried from a random machine without being logged into to alfabb or google photos and it worked. Try this: Right-click on the picture link above, then click "Copy link address", open a new browser tab or open a new browser completely and paste the link.

Past Alfas...
59 102 Touring (first Alfa $500 running)
65 Sprint GT (2nd Alfa, $500 daily driver)

74 Berlina (first new car - now certainly rusted into oblivion)
61 Giulietta Spider G-Prod Race Car (where is it now?)
84 Spider Veloce (rarely drove it, so sold it)
86 Quadrifoglio (Dull car - no more 115s for me)
1971 Montreal "The Full Monty". Fair winds and following seas

Current Alfas
59 102 Touring Roadster - restoration complete, enough Alfa for any rational man. Or irrational, for that matter
Oops. Add to the "present" list, 10204 01488, 2000 Touring Roadster project

1955 Cessna 170B (wife taught me to fly tailwheel in this)

And present...
64 Mooney M20E ("Rambo". My faithful steed for over 40 years) Over 55 years old, and just returned from a trip to Argentina in him
Newest in the fleet
1967 Piper Super Cub on Wipline amphibious floats (a true "all terrain vehicle")

I added a bunch of pictures of the underside. Oil slick is from the oil idiot light that let go on a road trip in the middle of nowhere.
Last bump to the top. Going to bidding sites next.
