I picked my new 155 up yesterday and immediately started ripping her apart. She was very cheap and I knew beforehand that there is a lot to do. I'm pretty sure that I'll need a new bottle for my welder ;P
It's my first Alfa
I paid 280€ and it came with an additional interior (all seats and doorpanels) and a left electric mirror.
She ran 308.000 kilometres and the engine has never been opened. Got oilchanges every 10.000km and was driven by a family of alfa lovers, italians
Has not been moved in 4 years, started like a charm. I heard the chain knocking a bit and a fuelline is leaking, that's it.
So far I am content, no horrific discoveries, it's kinda all as expected. The carpet was wet and has been for years, guess that's why there's a lot of corrosion. I don't know the reason for it yet, the left side is dripping wet, the right one is nearly dry. Maybe it's because of the sunroof?
I'll start with cleaning and welding right away, then I'll focus on the engine. I know next to nothing about Alfas, so it will definetely get interesting
I'll keep this updated
Will try to work on her nearly every day from now on.
