1975 Alfa Romeo Alfetta Veloce

1975 Alfa Romeo Alfetta Veloce

Update 5/23/16 – Almost a year later, this poor  little Alfetta still hasn’t found a home. Thanks for the update Olaf!

From 8/3/15 – Jesse said it best I think when he said “I miss the four-wheel disc brakes, the smooth shifting five-speed, and oh… the sound of that twin-cam” in an earlier writeup. Here’s another chance, perhaps without as much rust – a 1975 Alfa Romeo Alfetta Veloce. This one is said to be almost rust free, have about 88,000 miles on it, and that it ran when it was parked in the early eighties. It has the dealer installed twin Webers. It looks complete and the driver’s seat is the only thing obviously needing repair. Then there’s the mechanical work, the fuel and brake systems. How much do you think it would take to revive this car? The owner is firm on his price of $3,000 and it’s listed on here on craigslist in Lincoln, Nebraska.

    The market for the Alfetta GT is firming up, but this is definitely over the top. Just a few years ago, this would have been a $700 car. Today, I’d peg it at $1200 and that’s due to the complete twin Weber set up. Its also left to be seen whether these are the Italian Webers or the “economy” version from Spain. Alfetta GT rust and they rust fast and heavy. The cowling under the windshield and the lift gate appear to be affected by the tin worm. This is definite a ground up resto, I wouldn’t bother spending the money on rebuilding the carbs and the brake system (just try to work on the rear brakes on these) without going full bore.

    1975 was the first year for US import and I believe they carried a 1.8L engine until 1976 model year. Interestingly, this car was taken out of California where it would be more valuable due to ’76 model year smog cut off date, leaving ’75 the only year not subject to bi-annual smog inspections.

    As for restoration costs, with body and mechanicals I would conservatively venture to say about $15k. For that kind of scratch, you can buy one of these in a wrapper…

    Hi this is a personal view from the UK and the UK market for old Alfa’s . At the moment it seems one of the fastest moving Marques out there . The prices for almost any old Alfa is rising and doing so for the last year . I realise our market is totally different from the USA but over here it’s buy now before they are out of reach. And although I only buy Porsche I do get sorely tempted to buy a old Alfa Sud fast . Only 87 left here !

    Interesting how the grill is from a 78 and the wheels are from the later GTV6. Wonder what else has been changed..

    I agree it is strange the wheels are 5 bolt. Originals are 4. I would have thought it’d be a considerable bit of work to change them to 5 bolt. Hubs, rotors, calipers and spindles for sure!
    I would purchase the 3 driveshaft donuts first thing. After sitting that long, they’ll be shot for sure! So will the brake line rubber hoses. These can be good cars, with careful maintenance. $3k is about double what I’d pay.

    The Alfetta was always at the bottom of all values for Alfa Romeo. At the time it was as desirable as a station wagon. I remember driving one that was only a few years old and was basically junk. I could just imagine what it is today.

    i currently live in Lincoln Nebraska where this car is located at. i have thought about buying this car and turning it into a small project for my self. i think that it would be a very cool car that a whole lot of people dont know about over here in the states.
