Yea I'm very happy. Thank you guys!
Although as I said the car will be quite a mission to get back to what I want it to be. For starters it has a 1.8TS swap with no idea how many miles on the engine. The car shows 120k miles on the chassis, but the guy I took it from said that the original 1.6 has lost it's bottom end within couple weeks of ownership and he just bough 156 (I think) and swapped 1.8 Twin Spark in. Bolted right up and worked straight away apparently. Unfortunatelly he also has swapped driver's seat for the one off 156. It's big, comfy and made of leather. It's a nice seat but I'd much rather have the original one in with Junior embroidery... Will be looking for one of those for sure. Haven't checked the floorpan etc. for rust properly yet but at the first glance it doesn't look too bad. It had some plating done to front suspension turrets and I think it looks solid but absolutely dreadful to look at. Also offside rear brake is gone, and by gone I mean the caliper dangles on the brake line, there's brake fluid pouring out when you press the brake pedal, also handbrake line is dangling separately. The guy said that the caliper stopped working and it rubbed on the disc so he disconnected it and tied up.... I think he drove like that for a while too.... SCARY! What's else, well the bolt for the seatbelt mounting bar thingy is flying out of it's socket due to the thread being stripped in the chassis. Will have to drill it bigger and re-thread it probably. Sometimes the engine's revs are going up and down on idle and when rolling on low speed the car jerks because of it. I've been told it can be several things with gunked up throttle body being the most probable cause of that. Didn't look over the engine bay too well but there are things that I've spotted straight away. First of all the chassis is all scratched up inside of the bay. I think the engine swap was a proper DIY job. Power steering fluid is leaking somewhere I think. I doesn't whine yet but I think it could've been topped up recently. Also the battery terminals are in a poor state. The interior is absolutely dreadful. Half of trim is missing and the other one is broken. Also the car was smoked in excessively so the upholstery turned its' colour from grey/blue-ish tint to sort of light brown. There were old rizlas and tabacco all over the place too. All I can say is steamcleaning will be in order... or stripping out for race car look haha
Other then that it has got lots of scratches and couple of dents plus a dodgy paintwork job on one of the panels (If I'd find one on here/ebay in the same colour I'd definitely go for it), the colour matching is way off plus I think there was a lot of putty underneath or a laquer they've used was crap because the surface where it was fixed is all crackled. Other then that the car has window tints all around, including front side windows and windshield. The tint is so thick that if you open your windows you have to pull them up with your hand to get them closed again. It has been lowered too. I quite like that but I haven't checked how did he manage to do that. I hope he didn't just chop the stock springs. I'm sure the previous owner had a way to get it to pass MOT by a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy, but I can't and frankly don't want to do that. It has got 17" wheels which are a nice design actually but they are in terrible shape, they are curbed quite a bit and I think they started to rust (I have no idea how it's possible with alloy wheels but it just looks like it). Tyres are ok except one at the back that has an outer edge worn badly, will have to look if suspension isn't bent or bushes being ok....
So yea, this is what I've found out about it so far and more faults are to be unravelled haha
Not to worry though, I knew I'm taking on a project car and I really like the looks of 145, so It's a pleasure to rebuild a car like this. It's a cool looking Alfa but also it's fairly suited for my budget.
So yea this is pretty much it, I will get some nice photos and start a thread on it at some point during the weekend
