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.

After a solid run of some interesting wagons, it’s time to focus back on our primary mission – find unusual, sporty cars for short money! And as usual, the classic car gods provide, in this case a pair of Alfa Romeo Alfetta GTs. If you’re a regular reader, you know about the great shape that shares cues with various exotics and other sports coupes of the period, the sweet four-cylinder that keeps telling you to wind it out, and the nicely balanced transaxle chassis. First up is this 1979 Alfa Romeo Alfetta GT for sale for $1500 in Berkeley, CA.

In the name of keeping the faith alive, here’s another pair of Alfetta coupes. Wonderfully balanced, overlooked, blah blah blah… you’ve heard it all here before. As much as shiny paint isn’t a priority here, it’s fun to see how, after years and years of the Alfetta being a beater, a clean body and shiny paint do wonders to bring out the curves and creases in the body. And suddenly, your coupe turns from a little Datsun B210 that goes faster than it should into an unusual car featuring lines shared with some of the most famous 1970s exotics. Okay, a bit of hyperbole there, but you get the general idea. And here are a couple of attainable examples – first, let’s look at this 1979 Alfa Romeo Alfetta GT for sale for $3000 in Daly City, CA.
