Relative to the GTVs and Spiders, the TIs and Supers went through a long period in Europe when they were just cheap cars. Finding good cars for 1k euro or less was pretty easy. During that time and later Tis and Supers parts were commonly mixed and matched. If done properly that's not a huge problem for reasons I've discussed. Bruce/Alfanuts bought just such a 'bitsa (2 liter w/ 4.30 rear end, Super headlights, hood spear, etc.) that was beautifully reconstructed by a genuine Alfa enthusiast. This car looks like a survivor from that time. If you're truly interested, take the car to a good body shop, put it on a lift and have an expert see if it's a poorly repaired wreck.
Looks like you're having a good time with your search. Fortunately, you are in the heart of Alfa country. The more you drill down, the more interesting cars will turn up. To reiterate: buy the best car you can find.
