Up for sale is my 1989 75 3.0L with approx 201,000kms on the clock.

I have owned a few Alfa 75’s before and can confidently say this is a very good example both cosmetically and mechanically. Owned by Alfa enthusiasts so it has always been looked after, it was in the Alfa club for many years before I owned it.

The bodywork is in very good condition, no rust, appears to be original paint but it has been touched up before in a couple areas, most likely due to fading which is common with acrylic red colours, there is no evidence of any accident damage repairs or the likes.

Mechanically it is also in very good condition and this is not my imagination, an Alfa specialist has checked the car over and agrees. There are no engine oil leaks or power steering fluid leaks. The engine I healthy and does not burn oil. It does not consume coolant and it runs cool. It has very healthy oil pressure (hot and cold).

The electrics are spot on, everything works as it should, 4 x power windows, sun roof, lights, warning control lights etc, however the drivers side power mirror doesn’t seem to work (has manual adjustment), the passenger side works.

The air conditioning works and it was ice cold last summer but I haven’t run the air con for a while so will most likely need a re-gas for the upcoming summer.

The interior is very tidy, there are no rips, stains, cracks or broken fittings anywhere; it is as close to new condition as you could expect to find in a 1989 car.

This 75 is pretty much as it left the factory, with exception of the following:

17” wheels with 85% tread (comes with original wheels fitted with Yokohama A539 tyres)

Bilstien shocks and up-rated 27mm torsion bars , the rear has been lowered but the front is still standard height.

The rear exhaust has also been changed to a free-flow item, the middle and front section is factory standard, so all that needs to be replaced is the rear section if it is too loud for your tastes.

Major service just completed, including new wheel bearings at the front, spark plugs, coolant flush, oil and filter change so it is ready to go, perfectly suitable to be used as a daily driver.

The only reason im selling is that I need funds to finish off my long term 105 GTV project.

I will leave it up on the forums for a week or so and if no luck i will try carsales or ebay.

Deposit Received

Yes, i always regret it when i sell an Alfa! And nice 75's are getting thin on the ground so its pretty much guaranteed i will be kicking myself sooner or later.

Deposit received today, the car will be off the Melbourne on Saturday if all goes to plan.

The previous owner put them on, they do suit the car and surprisingly light for 17", but really need to be spaced out a bit to fill the guards better.

The brand is DTM, cannot recall the model name but they have been out of manufacture for quite awhile, maybe keep an eye on ebay.
