1979 Alfa Romeo Sport Sedan

Alfa Romeo, as a brand, has had a bit of a split personality through the years. You have your flamboyant sports cars like the 8C Competizione, Montreal and SZ that have appeared along the iconic Spider throughout the years. Then there are the more sedate coupes and sedans, like the 164, 105/115 Bertone coupes and this car, the Alfetta Sport Sedan. Innocuous looking in ivory with brown velour, it has a throaty twin cam engine and rear-mounted gearbox for maximum driving pleasure. This one for sale in New York has to be one of the best, examples that is currently for sale in the country, if not the world.

1979 Alfa Romeo Sport Sedan

Exotic Classics is proud to present this brilliantly original 1979 Alfa Romeo Sport Sedan. Featured with factory-original Yellow paint and brown velour interior, thi Alfa Sport Sedan may be the finest example you could find. The four-door Alfetta was sold in the USA from 1975 through 1977 under the name Alfetta Sedan. From 1978 to 1979 this mildly restyled version was sold under the name Sport Sedan. The Alfetta introduced a new drivetrain layout to the marque. Clutch and transmission were housed at the rear of the car, together with the differential for a more balanced weight distribution, as used on the Alfetta 158/159 Grand Prix cars. Alfa’s famed 2.0L DOHC engine delivers 130 HP and this well-balanced sedan is lively and delightful to drive.

The seller of this Alfa is know for some high end metal, such as the 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Club Sport we featured recently over at our sister site, German Cars for Sale Blog. It’s unlikely you’ll find a cleaner version of this model any time soon, but does that make it worth almost $25,000? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If it were me, I would target this car’s forebear, a Giulietta sedan, as you can get a decent driver for similar money. Realistically, the best Sport Sedan of this era should bring somewhere in the $10,000 to $15,000 range.

One thought on “1979 Alfa Romeo Sport Sedan”

  1. Love this! Perfect for when retro giallo films come back in style. I would rather have this than a similar BMW or Mercedes sedan from the same era. But I would absolutely not pay more than $5k, maybe $6k tops.
