1975 Alfa Romeo Alfetta Sport Sedan series 1

55k on the odometer that I believe is accurate. Factory original Verde Oliva metallic paint. Boarskin Alfa Tex interior. Very sound example with virtually no chassis rust. Original floors, rocker panels, jack points, front shock towers, and spare tire cavity all are exceptionally clean. Body is also very straight, no sign of any accidents. Has some bubbling at the bottoms of the front doors, some superficial rust in a couple spots, rear wheel arches, trunk lid. I have a new hood, someone obviously had a problem with this one.. Iíve focused on the mechanics before tackling the body and paint. I had an Alfa specialist remove the transaxle and replace what I could with new parts. That includes the de dion bushings, watts link bushings, rubber axle boots. Rebuilt inboard brake calipers, new rotors and pads, new red performance springs, and Koni adjustable shocks. In addition the critical always spinning driveshaft was rebuilt with new guibos and center bearing. Since itís a Ď75 it has special guibos that I took great pains to properly source, as they are no longer available. Luckily I was able to find a complete set so all were replaced with original nos parts. New transaxle and motor mounts. Front brakes rebuilt with new pads and rotors, as well as a new master cylinder and stainless steel lines. Motor runs well recently replaced the water pump, correct 2 piece molded lower hose, new front seal and fi belt when apart. Has the european split exhaust and an Ansa rear muffler. The interior of the car is exceptional, especially the original upholstery and door panels. Headliner is intact with no rips or tears but has the inevitable staining from the cheap glued in glass. Everything works lights, heater, as well as the rear window defogger, cigarette lighter, original Blaupunkt frankfurt radio except the clock lets not get crazy here. Runs and drives great, handles incredibly well, the precise manual rack and pinion steering along with the lightweight perfectly balanced design and sophisticated suspension adds up to a very entertaining car to drive. Rare survivor this model is now much more scarce than any other Alfa of the time. Especially this series 1 with the stylish 3 bar grille and small Alfa heart, sold only this one year in America. If youíre an Alfa enthusiast looking for something different and an easy restoration take a look here. Iím moving to the west coast and have run out of time to finish it off. Collectibility and values are rapidly increasing as more people realize how unique these cars are. Taking offers.

Have never seen that color on any Alfa. Interesting color. Ours of the same model was dark blue, with brown velour interior. Looked very nice, was fun to drive. Actually, the 78 was not quite as much fun to drive, it's transaxle gearing being different enough to take the sparkle out some.

Being a 1975, this would be a perfect west coast car. No CA smog!

84 Spider - Long gone, but started the addiction; 85 GTV6 - Current project, Supercharged, Mega Squirt; 88 Verde - "Milo" It has a name, must be a keeper

The car is in Cornwall 8 miles from the track at Lime Rock. Our local Alfa guru is of course Keith at Alfas unlimited. If you know Keith you would know he is not going to do a transaxle extraction on an Alfetta at this juncture..! He did however change the bushings for me on the de dion member as it requires a factory tool that he of course has. He is very generous with stuff like that. A few Alfa owners I know have been using a guy that worked with Keith, Dave Lemieux who is a professional mechanic and an Alfa enthusiast/specialist.

My '75 Alfetta Sedan had the same interior as yours, but with Olandese Blu. I love the small heart grille on the '75 model. That was such a sweet-driving little car.

If my '64 Giulia Spider resto were finished, I'd be on the road to gather this one up.

Someone is going to be really happy...

Alfetta Sedan

Somebody buy this car!!! I have owned several Alfa's but my 75 Red Alfetta Sedan with black interior not only looked great but performed like a champ.
A perfect first Alfa for someone. A nice paint job and someone will have themselves a gem.

Nothing wrong with the 75 (if that's what you meant, sorry if you didn't), based on our own experience. Actually liked it more than the 78 in many respects. More fun to drive because of the gearing. If it is rust free, and never ever driven where there could be salt on the road, it should be fine. The early Alfettas did rust big time if not properly taken care of, but if you can do that... I unfortunately had to drive ours in DC, real rust city because in the Spring we arrived, 1980, they had the big blizzard, which caused salt to be on the roads for many many days.

Plus, I kinda liked the design of the hood on the 75 better than that big almost flat hood (reminds me of my father's 67 Olds 442 hood) on the later 78.

This is an exceptional car. Considering the rarity, originality, and what Iíve done mechanically I have it at $7k. Price would double if it was painted.
