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.

With Alfa Romeo’s increasing popularity among a broader base of vintage car enthusiasts, even the lowly Alfetta has attracted more fans.

Or they’re just sad they couldn’t pick up a Giulia for $3500 anymore and are looking to the next most affordable option. 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.

With a recent flurry of articles on this fine site espousing the virtues of Alfa Romeo Spiders, it’s worth showing what happens when the dream doesn’t turn out so well for the owner. Sure, these are fairly solid cars if you assume an attentive owner who will keep on top of preventive maintenance and track & address suspicious noises as needed, but for many, these cars are their first toe in the water of Italian sports cars. And perhaps, as in the case of our feature car, it might also be their last. Check out this 1988 Alfa Romeo Spider Graduate for sale for $750 in Oakland, CA.
