Mechanically she is very healthy, starts first time, hot or cold. Does not use coolant or burn oil. The body does have a number of knocks and marks as you would expect of a car this age. The worst are shown in the pictures. Having said that she polishes up really well and still looks stunning. In March 2013 I had a genuine Alfa rear floor pan welded in along with a couple of minor bits that needed attention. This was all etch primed, painted and then undersealed.
I will also throw in a number of spares I have including intake pipes, rocker covers and manifold, heater controls, throttle body, genuine BOSCH MAF (only did 500 miles before my previous V6 died) plus whatever else I can find!
