I agree , the undercarriage photos were dark and/or blurry. And I don't know what was up with that spare tire well and the area around it.

I also noticed the flash showed they had sprayed some of the floor pan black, which isn't necessarily bad, but why would n't take the time to take care of some of the other suspension parts etc...

I am resolved to thinking that rust was mandatory on ALL cars leaving Italian factories in the 70's... Not a question of how good or bad the example you bought is, it's a question of WHEN you will start cutting and welding and bonding with your panel beater and googling "rust treatment solutions".

Thank you thats what I was getting at, looking at that BaT car the bad nose fix was not evident, and the underside was a LOT cleaner, theres no way in such a short period of time the case was resolved, car fixed up like that, and posted on BaT. Not possible.

FWIW, the first post on BaT regarding this car and the follow-up by the same person:

@pinshaw, it’s not that car…..

Apr 9 at 1:42 PM (the follow up gave the link to this thread - seems I need three more posts myself before AlfaBB will allow me to quote or post a link).

The only reason that this thread and car was even brought up in that BaT auction was because the seller was being less than transparent and tended to obfuscate with some of his answers about the condition of the car. The whole experience relating to the car here is that you need to do your own due diligence before you plunk down your hard earned dollars. I hope that the buyer of the BaT car got what he expected for his money, although, I am skeptical about that.
