1978 Alfa Romeo Sprint Veloce

Original car with no accidents or body work. Less than 110,000 original miles. Original Paint. Original owners manual, warranty books, and factory shop and fuel injection manuals.

This has been a great car and as you can see from the list below it has had a lot of work performed with lots of really nice parts. The problem is that it dropped a valve seat which broke the valve and the head of the valve went into the #1 piston. Living in New Orleans it is near impossible for me to find a location or the time to repair. I am not terribly interested in parting out but it is an option I would consider. Check the lists below and I think you would agree that this is a vehicle that with a bit of work would be well worth the investment. This is not a junker!
