Mechanical work is supposed to be a cheaper / easier problem than body work. Even after a pre-purchase inspection, my experience was that more mechanical work continued to turn up, and ongoing running / repair costs for my car exceed what I expected. Of course maybe that won't happen to you.

If you have the aptitude, workspace, and tools to really resolve mechanical issues yourself, maybe a meager budget will be enough. Retrospectively, most people seem to recommend buying a car that's already been gone thru as a better value than fixing one up yourself.

Looks good, enjoy the ride!

More than a few of us are approaching 'All Alfa, All The Time'. I've hear my wife tell her friends my moods match how my Spider is running . . . .
