CAR HAS BEEN SOLD

I have a 1979 Alfetta Sprint Veloce with 55,000 original miles and no rust. Always garaged and in very nice condition. Car was repainted by previous owner in original ivory, and still looks very sharp & glossy. Other than that, the car is completely original including the tan cloth interior, with wood steering wheel & shifter in perfect condition. Here is what's been done recently:

In the past 2500 miles: rebuilt engine, with new water, fuel, and vacuum hoses; new drive line flex joints; new brake calipers, pads, rear rotors & rebuilt master cylinder; new clutch slave cylinder & rebuilt master; new lower ball joints; new motor mounts and front transmission mounts; new fuel filters and fuel pressure switch.

In the past 1,000 miles: new battery, new tires, added period Momo wheels; new thermostatic actuator; new ignition coil; new (rebuilt) alternator & all belts, new wiper arms, NOS rear exhaust, new front rotors & pads

Jobs that I never got to (but I have the parts for): new suspension bushings and NOS Alfa front & rear shocks; replace front quarter window winders (I have replacements)

The not-so-great:Car idles rough until warmed up (typical), drips a bit of oil (typical) and runs rich, so will need a tune-up. Factory AC blows, but not cold. Suspension is a bit soft, hence all the new - but not yet installed - suspension parts.

My Alfetta is a very nice driver, Not concourse, but I'd rate it a 8 out of 10 (exterior), 7 out of 10 (interior) and a 6 out of 10 (mechanically), based on everything above.

I know the previous owner of this car and sold him a few interior trim pieces. He was meticulous about maintaining originality. Haven't seen the car in a few years but the body was in great shape then. Sounds like the new owner has the mechanicals on their way to matching the interior.
