Detroit Iron – 1975 Alfa Romeo Alfetta Berlina

July 8, 2016

With RustyButTrusty headquarters located on the west coast, it’s not unusual to see cars that lean away from the rusty end of the spectrum. Experience shows that, if you are fairly careful about keeping a car dry, existing rust may not be a deterrent to enjoying an older car. Wrenching on it or letting your kids hang out around it may be another story, but when your personal economy works against fixing all the rust on your old heap, there are plenty of other things you can do to make it fun. And perhaps that’s the right approach for this 1975 Alfa Romeo Alfetta Berlina for sale for $995 somewhere near Detroit, MI.

Either way, let’s check out this 1979 Alfa Romeo Alfetta Sedan for sale with bidding at $2801 and 18 hours left to go in Decatur, GA.
