Hi, does anyone know of an SZ/RZ being dismantled..? I`ve come across one that is spanked in the rear and needs panels/bodywork doing. Main agents are no good for anything so the only hope is on here..
Cheers, Mark..

Which is it you're after - SZ panels or RZ panels? Although they look the same, I'm not sure they're interchangeable.

Going by their website, Jamie Porter at the Alfa Workshop has some RZ panels.

Is this the SZ up for auction with HBC?

Not sure what's going on with it - last price I saw was the same as you, I think, but then it was delisted.

It's back on there now at £3100, saying there's only two bids with 8 days to go.

Get in touch with Mike @ MGS

see here

SZ bodywork has the added complication that almost no two adjoining panels are the same material.

yeah, so i`ve only got 7 days to get info on parts that are available and to make the final decision..would be a shame not to have had one..maybe just sit on it till the right panels come along, don`t think they`ll ever bottom out on value...Il Monstro here we come..(maybe)

Cheers lads

I've just seen the car on the auction site - for that money (and if I had the space) I would buy it myself just a source for spares! Windscreen, front bumper, interior etc got to be worth it.

PS - assuming you can get the panels, then the repair doesn't look too difficult so could make quite a cheap SZ....

Depending on what it finally goes for, I'd have thought buying it for spares would be a better option.

Last time it was on here someone pointed out that the doors aren't flush - now I know they're not always 100% flush at the best of times, and it might just be that they've not closed them properly, but it also might be that they don't close properly any more.

Mind you it's a Cat D, so any damage shouldn't[i/] be structural... who knows. :confused:

Hello guys,

might be an interesting car to buy and repair but it always depends on the price for the car and the repair costs.
At the current price (3100 pounds but reserve not yet met) no bad deal on spare parts alone I would say.

Regarding repairing, am I seeing it correct that the backaxle is dislocated to the right (position of the wheels regarding the side panels is different). This could also explain the ill fitting doors and the damage to the boot floor (spare wheel well is damaged and even the rearpanel has lifted, see uplifted middle speaker) and it is according to a rear shunt slightly towards the right.

If the car has serious chassis damage and the reserve is around the the current bidprice it would still be interesting for spares though I think. Just my 2 cents worth of thinking.

Good luck to any prospective bidder / buyer.

Robin

Went for £7700 in the end - wonder whether it'll get repaired? It's got to be marginal to break it at that price, hasn't it?

Yes I agree £7,700 is probably too expensive just for spares. I'm not even sure it's a good deal to repair at that price either?

With a starting price of £5k they're either hoping for a quick buck, or they've realised it's going to be too expensive / difficult to repair so they're outing it....

Hi everyone, I have seen this car and the damaged is pretty severe. The boot internals are displaced and the wheels no longer seem square to the car. I was surprised that it is only CAT C. With a decent one at around 16-18K from a dealer and less privately I think the owner has realised it is not viable to repair.

Light rear end damage!!!! If this guy ever advertises a car with serious rear end damage, just expect a photo of a bent steering wheel and a smoking tyre.
I had a classic corvette with roughly the same damage (fibre body) and it cost 15 grand to restore properly, and all corvette parts are readily and cheaply available. A normal bodyshop won't touch this repair!
Having said this, these are stunning cars to drive, and someone should invest the time and effort to put this alfa icon back on the road.

If i remember correctly,this motor sold for over £7k thru the auctions

Can anyone confirm that?i did feel it was on the high side but as a very rare car then i would expect it to go for good money

As a salvage Co,they surely done there homework if they bought it direct,wouldn't they??????????
