1978 Alfa Romeo Sport Sedan

The 1970s were a rather dark time in automotive history, leaving automakers scrambling for solutions to ever tightening emissions and safety regulation. This resulted in an era of lower performance and marred styling by way of things such as crash bumpers. Over the years, technology has come around to improving performance and economy, even if styling has taken a back seat in some cases. Through it all, though, Alfa Romeo has always given the petrolhead something to swoon over. This Sport Sedan was the perfect solution for those who wanted the thrills of a Spider but needed the extra space. This well-sorted car is located in Indiana but was originally a southwest vehicle.

Alfas of this vintage are a good way to get into the Italian car hobby on the cheap, if, of course you have the stomach for regular maintenance. I like the look of the Alfa, but slimmer, European style bumpers would round off the look a bit for me. Given the condition, $7,500 isn’t terribly bad for what you are getting. If a little bit can be bargained off the price, you’d have a nice, usable classic.
