Very very clean. Looks like the front end is still jacked up instead of being lowered back to the euro spec. Is it just camera angle, or are the tires just a little bigger than stock dia? Nevertheless, beautiful car.

Almost a dead ringer of my first Alfa in 1985...if only it had the grey cloth interior.

Why do these need to leave CA? Because passing smog test is hard for older SPICA?

The ad pics are pretty much worthless and so is a limited description. Obviously its not "original throughout" but besides whats visible bigger question remains whats not. For the asking price and the fact that it was just serviced, why would the seller not bother to install right outer mirror?! This looks like a GT I saw at a local dealer about 7 years ago, but hard to tell without seeing interior. That car had a hacked lower center console...

If the smog system is intact and operating, provided the engine is running right, these are fairly easy to smog. Passing smog in California, especially for older post '75 cars (domestic and euro) is usually a question of how much $....

For smog, have a muffler shop install a new modern cat converter and also fab a test pipe. with cat on, adjust the mixture and its not too difficult to pass. take test pipe off, adjust for performance and enjoy 2 years until you do it again. Not the worst thing in the world.

@mygtveloce - yes, smog pump and header need to remain for visual. if you have the 4 into 2 header it is a pretty good design anyway, but 4 into 1 is supposed to be a choker. not sure on modified engine - only experience is with stocker.

Not much in the way of info. Was repainted for sure. Is black the original color? Images of the bare metal repaint? Rust at windshield? Shock towers? Rear hatch? Way too much unknown here especially if seller wants to sell out of state.
