1988 Alfa Romeo Spider

I bought this car in '06 it had 46,000 miles on it I have added to bring it to about 70-80,000. A certified mechanic rebuilt the engine but a short time later it locked up. The machine shop said the crank didn't need to be turned. At this point in time I believe I should have taken it down 10 thousands because it had spun a bearing causing the rebuild. The engine has all new parts; the head was done at the mach. shop and worked fine, tranny is good with no problem with sync in second gear, has a new clutch plate. Like most Alfa's it has some electrical issues; points for headlights in column needs cleaning, speedometer/odometer don't work, fan light comes on but don't blow. There is a rusted spare wheel compartment but holds the spare, some rust underneath but doesn't affect the integrity of the structure or of the driving, it runs straight and true down the highway, no uneven wear on tires indicating a need for alignment. There are 5 of the same Panasport wheels, Pirelli's have good tread but are 6+ years and older. Radiator has been restored. It has a rebuilt starter. I have receipts for all the parts that were used in the rebuild. All glass is good with fog in lower right corner of windshield. Vinyl upholstery is good with no rips. Recent paint with a couple of chips and nose got damaged (see photos). Fabric top needs to be replaced. There is a boot that snaps on the body. As you understand this is not a 'garage queen' it is an everyday driver. The KN filter goes with the car. I am 80 years old and I can still GET DOWN .....the problem is getting back up. The car is smoke free. The car is not one size fits all....it is going to take an Alfa guy to put it back on the road and it did love the road. I am sure that I have not covered everything so please please please write me and keep me honest. I don't like surprises and you wouldn't want any either. QUESTION before you bid. Good Luck!

I apologize for not being clearer about it.

As to the Auto Check report about odometer. I have tried to get the speed and odometer fixed by replacing both the cable and the electro/mechanical device to no avail. The figure of 70-80,000 miles is a mere guesstimate. I didn't go anywhere that would add very much mileage in the nearly 10 years that I have owned it.
