1978 Alfa Romeo Alfetta GT w/ 2 liter Twinspark (1989)
The Good:

These engines are a direct fit for the drive shaft, motor mounts and exhaust down pipe.
116 series.
Twinsparks give the Alfetta the horsepower they should have had to begin with.
Better mileage, more horsepower, more low-end torque, lower emissions and
very reliable Bosch Motronic fuel injection.
I bought this car from Clark via the AlfaBb he bought it from a car collector in Southern California in 2003, then dropped the engine in a year later.
145k

Runs cool
Clutch is strong

A little rust behind front wheels and the dash has a few small cracks.

Handles great
Great fun to drive on the highway.

The Bad:
1. As almost all Alfettas, it had rust in the inner fender wells when I bought it. It was a California car, so the rust was minimal. I pulled the splash guards and blew the inner wells out with compressed air, then treated it with Eastwood rust encapsulator and have not seen any more signs of rust since. It's been garage kept and it has not gotten wet since I've owned it.
2. The starter grinds occasionally.
3. It has a broken front sway bar mount that needs to be re-welded.

Spare parts:
Complete late Alfetta GT Driveshaft.
Front, center and rear flex disks
ECU and wiring harness for TwinSpark
Air Flow meter
Fuel pump
Master and Slave clutch cylinders
Steel clutch hose
Fresh rear transmission mounts.
Spare fuse box.
Spare radiator.
Extra speedometer clusters.
Rear bearing press and (rare) star wrench tools.
Spare turn signal steering column cluster.
A box of more smaller parts.
Asking $9750.

I also have a full set mint of black GTV6 interior door panels, seat belts center console. AND I was able to source a set of uncut early 1976 Alfetta door panels in black. These interiors will be sold separately

Still available a few interested parties but sadly no one local to test drive this wonderful, strong Alfetta. Open to offers

I’ve got that much in the one I bought four or five months ago. Wish you’d posted earlier.
