1.7 boxer engine wanted

Hi, I've started the job of restoring my project Alfasud, the plan being to turn it into a track day warrior. I'm looking for a 1.7 boxer engine out of a Sprint or 33 - if anyone knows of one, please let me know.
Happy to consider any condition as we can rebuild it here, and will also consider complete or breaking cars.
We are stripping out the interior so will be shifting most of that and some other parts as soon as we've sorted everything out. If you want anything specific PM me.
I'll try to post a few shots as we proceed - we're also updating our twitter feed @classiccarshire with photos and updates (that's not meant to be a plug).

Had a 33 1.7 QV

Try Peter. He acquired 5 engines recently but no idea if he can provide them complete or how much he'll ask.

Maybe you'll have luck here. Always come floating around.

there are a few 1.7 8V's kicking about, think rodger has one awating a new home

8V 1.7 is a nice engine too

I believe Steve Parry may be having a bit of a clear out, may be worth a try...

Not an Alfa :-(


Ive got a 1700 8 valve, just removed from a S2 33. The car it came out ofhad covered approx 90,000miles.It started and ran well before removal approx 4 weeks ago. Also its an early mechanical tappet engine so more suited to track use. Its a complte engine inc. carbs, alternator, starter etc but no gearbox.

I live in Cheshire, CW8 4HD. I was intending to fit it to my S2 33 once restored but have decided to sell. I'm only after what i paid, 250

I have a few 1500's which would need rebuilds, a 1500 with circa 140bhp which is good to go and a 1.7 8v which needs a rebuild... all avaliable at Dave's place nr Cambridge.

There are a few gearboxes too... In a few weeks we need to do an inventory and get a list of parts up here to let people see which spares are avaliable... for example my vented inboard discs and spaced calipers will need a new home along with my suspension (inboard brakes) from last years championship winning sprint

Anyways.... in time I'll post a parts list.... a pm will get more details if required
