This Alfa listed on eBay has been sitting since a clutch failure in 1972 but apparently not in this field. It’s apparently rust free and has only about 38,000 miles. The styling by Bertone may not appeal to everyone, but it gave this little Alfa a drag coefficient of 0.28, lower than any production car for the next 50 years. After the owner’s death this Alfa was sold at Bonhams in 2014, where it was expected to sell for between $125,00 and $175,000. The BIN on eBay right now is $100,000. The original owner raced it on the SCCA circuit on the east coast. It was originally red, but was resprayed white with a black tail to make it stand out on the track. There is a plaque on the dash showing it ran in the Area I Championship at the Lime Rock Races for the New York Region of the SCCA. At some point the owner moved to Arizona and after a clutch failure in 1972 the Alfa was parked.
The interior looks pretty nice for having set so long. It appears complete and original and complete.
The seats look rather nice after all these years. The rodents don’t know what they’ve missed.
It looks complete and original under the hood. This 112 HP 1.6 L engine with a 5 speed transmission give this Alfa a top speed of 120 mph. It doesn’t run but it will turn freely, hopefully not too freely. The new clutch is still in the trunk and is waiting to be installed.
It appears it wouldn’t take much to make this driver and preserving it as an original car. It would also be worth completely restoring it to its former red glory. For a collector with deep enough pockets, the price may actually seem reasonable. There were only 1400 of these built and very few survived in their original form. Many were either modified or lost to racing. I hope perhaps the next owner enjoys what makes this little Alfa so special.
