1983 Alfa Romeo GTVSelling a 1983 Alfa Romeo GTV6 with Washington plates that expire in November clear title. Previous owner installed a 2.5 Milano engine exact mileage not known & redid the front seats upholstery at some point. Under my ownership I replaced the battery (2 months old), spark plugs, wires, distributor cap & rotor, air filter, oil change with filter, transmission drain & refill with Redline 75w90ns gl-5, coolant flush, complete thermostat housing with new upper & lower gaskets, fan switch, light bulbs & lenses since most of them were cracked from the sun. Headlights, tail lights, brake lights, turn signals, power windows work. No rust only small dents & chips. California car originally but don't know if it will pass smog selling as is. Starts right up sounds great runs & make sure you do your own research on how to shift this transmission very delicate not your typical everyday manual transmission so you won't be surprised also needs wheel alignment, brake flush/job, AC belt, power side mirrors do not work, etc. Speedometer & tach are not working everything else works remember it is a 34 year old car. Will come with an extra transmission rare Ansa rear exhaust, original car manual, very thick repair service manual as well & some other spare parts. Feel free to ask any questions. Thanks for looking!
*UPDATE #1 -8/27/2017 -I recently went to go start the car which I do daily since it sits. The car starts then shuts off & sometimes idles but when you give it gas it then again shuts off. I replaced the fuel filter with a new Bosh one. Next thing to do is put more gas since it was low & if it still doesn't stay on the fuel pump might be the culprit.
*UPDATE #2 - 8/28/2017 -I put 10 gallons of fresh gas then started the car & started once again on the first try. It was idling fine so I went around to check on the fuel filter to make sure no leaks were present & to my surprise it was leaking all the gas I just put in so I immediately shut it off. Looked into the leak & realized the fuel hose going to the engine from the OUT fuel filter is sliced because of an unnatural bend it makes so that needs to be replaced & reason why it doesn't stay on.
*UPDATE #3 - 9/1/2017 -Today I replaced the fuel hose & the car started right away with no problems. Also I noticed when I was replacing the fuel hose the slave cylinder leaks but not a lot. Don't miss out car is being sold locally as well since it has to go!
