My duetto has been reunited with a long lost relative from Arese that lived right here in my area.
It came from the estate of an Alfa lover who sadly passed away a few months back, not Covid related.
Both cars are '67's.
Moderate rust in the rockers and has not been driven since Reagan was in office.
Otherwise a complete car.
Lots of work ahead to get this step nose back on the road!

You're in Central Florida? Where? I was just in New Smyrna Beach, only Alfas I saw were a 4C and a Stelvio.

Yes, it is an aftermarket luggage rack.
The previous owner fabricated a cow catcher on the front.
He locked a chain under the seat, and locked it around the steering wheel to deter theft.
There were two NY license plates in the trunk.
It was in Long Island, then transported to Florida and then sat in a garage for 35 years.

He liked it enough to save it, not leaving it out in the elements. This is a good restoration candidate today.

That is my plan.
It has the moderate rust in the rocker panels but the floors, fenders, wheel wells and doors are solid.
Interior is aged but in very good condition and the headliner is perfect. Vintage 8 track player.
Seat material is still supple with no tears or punctures. Basket weave pattern.
Oddly, the clutch is not seized.
Once I freed the front brakes, I pushed the clutch pedal and the car moves freely.
I'm pretty sure the engine is seized since its been sitting so long.
Pair of Weber 40s, typo 27's, which are what these came equipped with.
30 year old tires still hold air. I'm thinking maybe they have tubes.
No missing parts.
Eventually I will have it repainted in the original red.
