No one is dissing the car
It is obvious that the car has been polished to an extreme. Compare the engine bay pic with the rest of the car. The underside of the rubber trunk mat is more like original condition than the top; it's obviously been sprayed with some treatment. Same for the tires - compare to the spare in the trunk...... I would only understand and perhaps fill up my gaps: weren't these cars painted with nitro?
Read it as: has the car been polished?
This is what I call ”a constructive comment”Much too much useless talk on this thread. There are only two salient points: (1) this car is not "original", period; (2) seller is a speculator looking to make a fast buck on a car that is not worth and that will not sell for 60k anytime soon (as in the next 20 years).
End of story.
It's just the 26th one in that register, by serial number it was around the 500th built (Alfa did not assemble cars in exact order due to pre-painted bodies from Pininfarina that were assembled as needed to fill orders). About 8,700 were built in 1968 to 1970, when the Kamm-tail was introduced.....Then you mention that it's #26 of the first group of US spec 1750s !....Wow, must be a late one !
