Alfatragic – 1979 Alfa Romeo Alfetta Sedan Alfamatic

June 26, 2016

With Alfa Romeo’s increasing popularity among a broader base of vintage car enthusiasts, even the lowly Alfetta has attracted more fans. More people must be recognizing that, in spite of the rust issues, daily driver concerns and the underdeveloped emissions system on North American cars, the great steering and balance of Alfa’s 116 platform makes it a rewarding driver-level classic. 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.

You Can Do It! – 1976 Alfa Romeo Alfetta GT and 1979 Alfa Romeo Alfetta Berlina

January 21, 2016

If you think the world is running out of cheap Alfas waiting to be rejuvenated, step back, Jack, because a diligent search in the online listings will turn up cars that don’t require you to find reproductions of parts last made in the 1960s, but also don’t need you to walk on eggshells after purchase for fear the timing belt might snap/slip, and make your engine do a mashup that’s decidedly uncool. So let’s conveniently disregard the fact you won’t be sourcing obscure parts for your 1970s ride because they just aren’t available anywhere, and take a look at this 1979 Alfa Romeo Alfetta Berlina for sale for $3500 in Temple City, CA.

Happy Canada Day! – 1979 Alfa Romeo Alfetta Sedan

July 1, 2015

Just in time for the last couple of hours of Canada Day, we have a car in Canada that won’t be much of a surprise to frequent readers. However, most practical Alfa Romeos (if there is such a thing) in the snowbelt haven’t survived 35 winters unscathed, which is why it’s a surprise when you find one up there. Of course, thanks to the internet, cars move around a lot more, but usually those are the more popular models like convertibles and coupes. Hopefully someone else in Ontario will be thrilled to find a rare bit of North American Alfa Romeo history – check out this 1979 Alfa Romeo Alfetta Sedan for sale for $3500 in Keswick, ON.
