Hi, this was the black Milano Gold that was shown at this year's Concorso Italiano.

I'm listing this Alfa for my father. This car was bought in '87 in San Jose by my father. He used it as a daily until about 1996. The front guibo failed and the car was put in the garage for many years at 75K miles. In 2003 all 3 guibos were replaced with new ones and the car saw active duty once again. I then drove the car for two years and blew the headgasket after accidentally drivin gth ecar with a failed water pump. Instead of replacing the headgasket, an engine with only 40K miles on it was placed in the car when it had 85K miles. The car now has 88K miles on it.

We currently have 11-12 cars and need to make room. We have 3 Milanos and a GTV-6 at this point in time and don't have enough room in our driveway. We're also selling a 164LS at this time too.

Some history on the major work that was performed on the car:

-At 25K miles the synchros were all replaced after reverse gear broke, this was all done under warranty.
-At 40K miles the timing belt and waterpump were replaced.
-At around 50K miles the front pads were replaced and the valves were adjusted at Rosseli's Foreign repair in San Jose. This was done on the engine that is now in my garage, however.

-At 75K all 3 guibos were replaced, a new clutch slave was installed, and a new brake master was installed.

-At 85K a 40K mile engine was installed with a new timing belt and a new clutch master and clutch pedal bushing (the one that sqeaks on almost every Milano).

My father is a real DIYer and has been changing the oil, oilfilters, brake fluid, coolant at regular intervals himself.

This car is VERY mechanically sound - the synchros can't be beaten, the clutch is perfect, the engine runs smooth and sounds terrific, and the car will pass the California Smog test at around a tenth of the maximum (A far cry from my Verde that failed by a factor of three). I wish we could keep it but my mother is not happy with the state of our driveway and wants to see some cars gone.

There would be no problem with driving this car across the states.

Now, the reason for the low price is that the heater motor doesn't work, and one of the calipers needs to be looked at as under hard braking the car pulls slightly to the right.

Please come see this car in person. I KNOW the next owner will be just as pleased with it as we have been for the last 20 years.

You can reach me at (408) 316-1358 or via email. We're looking for 1.5K.

Thanks for your time,
-Grant

You and your dad are sick men, Grant. That's why I like you guys :D

I already have a Milano Gold, though. Hurry up and sell that 164 so I don't feel like I have to buy it!
