I have a number of items from my brother who passed away that I would like to sell. I am not very techie for using sites and spent the last 3 hours trying to sign in to one. Finally got in on this one. My brother left a 77 that is 148/150 in the Mario Andretti version. A 1960 engine, front end and some kind of cone shaped metal thing. Also some parts he bought new and used. So I will attempt to post pictures. Not sure that worked at all.

Hi,

You may need to post a few more messages, ten(?) in total, before being allowed to post photos.

Lots of us have bought and sold stuff on this BB, so it is a good place to post items for sale. You can also solicit advice; there are many people here with deep Alfa knowledge.

Remember to add a general location with your photos.

Cheers

Yes, you will need to complete 9 more posts here on the BB before you can add photos. This restriction can be a pain, but helps to keep the spammers at bay. And your ad won't be very effective without pictures, so it is worth the trouble. So tell us what you can about the cars and parts, perhaps about when your brother acquired them, how he used them, etc. Spread that across several posts.

Agree. Posting a classified ad here will allow you to reach Alfa enthusiasts world-wide. But as BobG noted, unless you give out the general metropolitan area where the cars and parts are located, people won't be that interested. No sense in a New Yorker getting excited about a car that might be in New Zealand!

Once you are ready to post, be sure to put the car ad in the "Cars For Sale & Wanted" area of the classified forums. And the parts ad in the "Parts For Sale & Wanted" area.

Hmmm. I know, I'm a professional paranoid. But there are a few things in his introduction that don't quite click. I guess I'll just hold my keyboard until we see some more.

So I have a bucket of parts plus parts he took off the car. How do you know if the part is from 1960 or just a new remake??

SuziQ,

Your parts appear to be for a 1960 Touring 2000. I have two of these cars and tend to pick up lots of these parts to assist other restorers.

Do you have a price in mind? I’d be happy to buy the lot.

I’ll send you a personal message with my contact info. If you can’t access the PM system, post a way to get in touch.

Don

SuziQ and DPeterson3:

I sent a PM to SuziQ expressing interest in the Sprint GT grille shown in the last picture in post #6. I think Don will agree that this would not fit a 1960 Touring 2000 and as such, I am assuming that he wouldn't be interested in it. But I realize that Don did reply first, so he does have dibs on the lot.

Actually, newbies can post pictures by using the paperclip icon for 'attachments'. What they cannot do is post links to photos stored elsewhere. Please do not make 10 nonsense posts - this will flag you as a possible spammer.

Often you can't -- especially when there's no intact, used or broken original piece available for a side-by-side comparison.

I'd be interested in the Alfa Romeo plaque in the third picture. Sending a PM although you won't get it until you have ten posts.

I’ve received no reply either here on the BB, or to a PM.

Suzi, if you can, let me know your interest in selling the whole batch. You can either split out non-2000 parts, or I’ll do it. I’m possibly better equipped to ID what fits the old 2000 and what doesn’t.

So having a hard time trying to figure out how to get to respond to your messages. I see your posts in email but it didn't take me to the original posts area. My young friend trying to help me with it. So just not sure on value or how to arrange sales. I live in Appleton, WI.

Suzi,

To respond to the Private Messages (PM's), log in and then click on "Your Notifications" and then "Unread Private Messages". Clicking on an individual message will allow you to respond to it.

Most buyers will want to pay with paypal have have you ship the items to them. The various Flat Rate boxes from USPS (small/medium/large) are usually the best option unless the parts are too large to fit.

So playing tournament next few days, I will work on this on Monday. In general we are selling things at a little less then value to move it and be a fair deal, and I can do paypal. So I will get in touch with the guys that expressed interest for the small stuff. The bigger parts I have questions about ... sellable or junk?

1. Frame front end he took off, as in a bar with big spring coils on it, dragged it outside so exposed to elements.
2. A cone shaped structure with a pipe someone said went with the cone thing.
3. The 60 engine, how do you know if it works to sell it?

What sort of Tournament?

Feel free to send me pics. I’ll ID what you have.

If you have a 1960 2000 engine, which seems likely given your other parts, it’s value can range from zero to maybe $2,500, if repairable. Or, a lot more if it was professionally rebuilt and securely stored.
