1988 Alfa Romeo Milano verde1988 Alfa Romeo Milano Verde
-117,xxx original miles
-Anthracite exterior: Grigio Medio Metallico (Doppio Strato)
-Verde cloth interior (Recaro seats) Need some TLC
117,xxx original miles from new. Starts, runs, and drives excellent with tons of power and torque from the all aluminum 3.0 V6 engine. Clutch feels great, and the transmission shifts smoothly and precisely throughout all five gears and into reverse. Absolutely no issues with the second gear synchro (common problem for these cars). Power is delivered to the rear wheels via the ingenious transaxle system. The factory Brembo brakes bring the car to a complete stop from any speed with ease. With its 50/50 weight distribution and performance oriented suspension system, this car handles absolutely incredible. Maintained using only original OEM Alfa Romeo parts. Up to date on service with fresh fluids, filters, plugs, wires, distributor cap, belts, etc.
Super straight body with all original panels. The Anthracite paint: Grigio Medio Metallico (Doppio Strato) is very smooth, deep, and glossy -- and although not brand-new, it is in exceptional condition overall. No fading of the original anthracite plastic trim. There are a few small areas that have been touched-up and are now barely visible from a few inches away (some minor stone chips on the nose of the hood along with some other miscellaneous areas). Door-jambs, pillars, gutters, and radiator-support are like-new with shiny original paint. All lights and glass are original and in excellent shape with no pitting or oxidation. Structurally the car is extremely solid with clean and straight floor pans, trunk pan, and rocker panels. This is a very honest car. The original factory Verde equipped 15" Benzoni (BWA) wheels are all straight and true with slight curb rash and no major scratches to their original gloss silver painted finish.
Factory Verde equipped Recaro LS-C seats are finished in their original Black Avus cloth with Black Monza cloth inserts. The seats were covered by the previous owner and I never took them off. How ever I believe they need some TLC. Door panel inserts are finished in their original Black Monza cloth as well. the black carpeting is clean. As is the headliner, which is finished in its original black cloth and has no major sagging issues (common problem with these cars). The rear shelf behind the rear seats is very nice as well -- and the dashboard, center console, and all plastic trim is crack-free and still looks new. Lastly, the trunk is super clean and appears to have been used very sparingly. The interior as a whole literally looks as good as the day it was put together in 1988.
All exterior and interior lights function flawlessly with no faults. All gauges and electronic accessories function flawlessly as well. All four power windows go up and down at normal speeds. The sunroof opens, closes, and tilts perfectly at normal speeds as well.
The infamous Alfa Romeo Control (ARC) dashboard-mounted diagnostic computer is currently malfunctioning with a couple of the lights randomly blinking. It is a very common problem for these cars, and jokingly referred to as the "Christmas tree" amongst Milano owners (due to the blinking lights). Most owners just ignore the unit altogether due to its insignificance and very outdated technology. However, a perfectionist might want it to function properly for nostalgic reasons, so there are two simple options:
(1) DIY (do-it-yourself) fix with fully detailed step-by-step instructions and photos which requires a $1.25 voltage regulator from Radio Shack.
(2) If tinkering with electronics is not your thing -- a complete OEM NOS unit can be purchased on eBayMotors for $25-$30 and simply swapped right into the dashboard with three plugs in the back and two philips-head screws in the front.
Although a sedan, the Milano Verde performs on par with the best sports cars of its day. Super clean low-mileage examples are few and far between nowadays, and anyone in the market will be hard-pressed to find another one even half as nice. At 28 years old, it is still the same beautiful high-performance sports sedan that was purchased new in 1988. Offered here is a very honest and super clean example that is fully sorted both mechanically and cosmetically. It needs nothing but a new owner to love and enjoy it. This is an Alfa Romeo Milano Verde you can truly be proud to own.
I want all potential buyers to understand that I have tried to describe this car as honestly and thoroughly as possible. I would like to reiterate the fact that it is a 28 year old used car and does have 117,xxx miles, so it does have some normal wear and tear. It is not a brand-new vehicle, and it is not 100% perfect -- however it is in exceptional condition both mechanically and cosmetically. The car is being sold as-is where-is, with no warranty expressed or implied.
I welcome any potential buyers to come view the car in person -- however if this is not possible then I will do my best to provide you with any additional details/photos that you may need in order to make an informed decision.
If you have been waiting for a very good Milano Verde to come up for sale at a reasonable price, here is your chance.
