New Alfa owner

Recently aquired my first Alfa and I'm madly in love with it. It's '86 75 v6. Was told when I bought it that it has a reconditioned 3 litre in it but I can't tell if this is so and so far no one else has been able to tell me??? So far I have re upholsed the drivers seat, replaced the radiator with a hand made brass 4 core job. Currently busy changing front left fender and installing a themostat that must have been removed by previous owner. Next week it gets steering and front suspension overhaul. After that back brakes require serious work as does the back suspension. Gearbox, clutch and linkages are all in the line for work as is the exhaust system. Doorlocks and window wipers will all get an overhaul, and, of course, DYNOTUNE Needs some minor panel work too.
When all thats done i'll start on the rubber and plastic bits.

Re: New Alfa owner

I doubt it. I'm well and truly over front wheel drive. Even learnt to drive in one way back in 1971
