1978 Alfetta

~106000 miles

read through the posts, at end is more description

located in NE Ohio

http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/alfetta-gtv6-1975-1986/173886-xrad-xrays-red-78-alfetta.html

My wife says I have 'Too many cars"....pita...

thinking of selling the Alfetta. you have seen the re-build.

price 8500$ firm. clear title.

some spares like 2 extra rims, used injector pump, spare gauges, new passenger seat belt not yet installed, spare speedo cable (not yet installed)electronic dizzy stuff, spare dizzy or two, some other small bits. Will need some front driver/passenger door window rubber trim (outside front door lower window rubber missing when I got it) front brake work (vac booster OK) and a fine tune on the SPICA.... and of course, if you shift hard, it grinds second. if you shift slowly, it does not grind. engine strong with recent head work. It needs a new headliner(torn by PO's dog). ALL electrics work(EXCEPT: hood light and rear defrost). I have some receipts, not all.

just bought a new set of calipers, pads, and rotors for front which will be installed.

anyone interested? pm me.

Wife really wants me to trim down on cars.

New price:7500$ or really good offer?

new front brakes (rotors, calipers, pads)

drove it around for 40 minutes. engine strong BUT

Needs rear brake adjustment. grinds if you shift to second too fast. needs SPICA fine tune.... and probably needs new shocks (a little soft)

includes new tires(mounted on new rims), new speedo cable not yet installed

wow. great deal. tons of work already done, thousands in new and RARE parts.....(at least $7,100 in parts/interior upgrades plus the original car)

and if you need the gov't manifold and air pump, I have those parts as well...

PM me if interested

well, SPICA is out and Accel Thruster DFI going in, along with FI intake and crank trigger...so you may be disappointed...and the price will be more after all the work.

Don;t worry, I save all parts in case you want to convert it back.....

and yes, the car is in excellent shape mechanically except 2nd gear and SPICA
