1973 Alfa Romeo Berlina

A few good examples of Alfa Romeo Giulia sedans have cropped up on the market recently, and here is another one that just appeared on Craigslist Philadelphia. The Berlina was available from 1972 through 1974 and was an evolution of the earlier Giulia sedan. The styling was a bit more square and formal and more power was on tap thanks to a larger 2.0 liter twin cam four cylinder, offering more power over the entire RPM range. One feature which was derided was the new white on black on white gauges, which were hard to read for some motorists. The addition of an automatic gearbox as an option signaled a shift in the tastes of the traditional Alfa Romeo buyer. Fortunately, this example has the traditional manual gearbox.

1973 Alfa Romeo Berlina - rare, especially in this condition. Very quick and responsive. $10,500

109,859 miles. All major mechanical and cosmetic components have been rebuilt or replaced within the last couple years. All service history and receipts back to the early 1980s. Dual Webber carbs, headers, cams, electric ignition, plus a variety of other upgraded mechanical components. Runs and drives perfectly. Shifts thru all gears flawlessly. Upgraded Custom Audio radio and speakers with aux input. Originally a Californian car, where it spent most of its life. Now kept in a climate-controlled garage. Many pictures available upon request. Serious inquires only please.

I can be a bit skeptical of older Italian classic cars that have lived on the East Coast for years, but this car was sourced from California, so that puts a bit of the usual rust concerns to rest. The gray on red color combination looks very classy and suits the lines of this car well. This car is priced just about right for what it is, considering the condition.
