Hi All,

I've owned Alfas for 30 years now but it's time to clear some space to start restoring a family heirloom 1950 Chev. So, I'm selling my 1977 Alfetta GT. It's an original Tuscon car, absolutely rust free. A LOT of work has been done to this car both by me and the original owner. The car has:

Brakes- New front calipers, master cylinder, booster.
Clutch- New master and slave cylinders
Shankle Sure Start
GTV6 front torsion bars and Koni reds in back
Exhuast
Tires
Paint
Refurbished heater core
It's an AC car but the AC is long out of service
What looks like a scratch in the passenger door is just a weird reflection, the paint is unblemished.

There is more but I am out of town at the moment and will update the info when I get back, as well as post more pics. The car runs, drives and shifts fantastic. Second gear synchro is a little stiff when cold but fine thereafter. No bang shifting (Duh) and always double clutch on down shift. I would like to get $7,000 out of it and am willing to help with shipping and delivery pretty much anywhere on the west coast. FYI, well over $9k in it, please, no comments about you never get back what you spend, I get it. Bought it as a project for while I was recovering from some surgery and it has been great. A blast to drive.

Sorry, forgot to say, the car is currently in dry storage in Seattle and has current Arizona plates

FTR, if you guys think I'm off on price please speak up, I won't be offended. There really is not much to go on in comparable sales in that about every one I look at is a rust bucket or in lousy cosmetic shape or butchered in one way or another. I am only the third owner of this car since new and have a letter from the original owner outlining up grades they made. I will post a pick of that as soon as I am back in town. Additionally, I have a number of spares, window rubber, door rubber etc. So, while there are still things to be done to bring this car 100%, all the hard stuff is done.
I will look at any reasonable offer and do whatever is required to help with shipping, up to trailering it myself as I routinely make the drive from WA to AZ and back.

Question: was the whole car repainted when the front end was repaired? I have family in both Tucson and Seattle. Thanks.

PeaKay, thank you for reminding me, I realize how it sounds, but I had forgotten about that. I have pics of the damage and repair and will put those up shortly. FTR. I rear ended a honda in short stop traffic a while back. I got lucky and was able to source original factory sheet metal panels from a ABB member and the work was done by a European specialist in Seattle, Bernard's, who has done a 78 Porsche 911 and is currently doing a Sunbeam Tiger for my brother.
The damage looked awful but was minor, sheet metal and grill. It was repaired with new sheet, no bondo and is back to perfect. Pics to follow.

PeaKay,

You asked if the whole car was repainted, no, the paint was only 18 months old so matched and blended.
