Some basic information would help like-

How much do you want to spend?

What sort of Alfa?

What do you want to do with it when it' s finished, commute, take rubbish to the tip in it, race it, polish it, burnouts in the local car park?

FWIW, Peter is right, a project with no rust is unlikely to have Alfa badges on it!;)

Chances are really slim to find an Alfa sitting in a low humidity "barn". Most barns or out buildings have dirt floors. The humidity rising from the floor can still cause a car to rust.

If you are serious about finding one, you might consider contacting someone like Wayne Carini. He's got a couple of Alfas on his website.

It can be done !

This Giulia 1600 S 1970 came out of a garage in Florence Italy in 2006.
One owner, 56,000 kms, original paint and no rust !

I would concentrate my search in Europe. That is where these are sleeping....

Are you looking for a GTA, or any Alfa?
Otherwise, this thread should go to another section.
Nevertheless, best of luck in your quest!

If you have the skills to handle the mechanicals and other aspects of restoration, you should be able to handle minor to moderate rust repair. Before I started working on my'73 Spider, I'd never even picked up a welder; now after completing a number of floor pan repair patches, I feel confident enough to attempt most any repair needed on the car. Just start on areas like floor pans where your initial poor looking attempts end up covered; by the time you complete those you should be able to tackle most anything. Actually replacing the rot with solid metal is very satisfying.

Best regards,

GTA rust free project wanted but I may consider other Alfa Romeo. I'm open minded. I may even trade my 13 acres of land for GTA

Does it "qualify" ;) as a "project" without rust or is it just "fettling" then?? ;) Best of luck finding a no-rust car that is a minor-project. In my experience if there is no rust, the rest of the car is pretty well sorted also. Just make sure the barn/shed had a cement floor and was heated.
