Our friends over at BlythBros. have been chronicling the rebuild of an Alfa Romeo Milano, a rarely seen but rewarding drive of a sport sedan offered to US customers in the 1980s. Known as the 75 across the Atlantic, these were great drivers cars, as those that arrived stateside came equipped with a V6 engine hooked up to a rear mounted transaxle for optimum weight distribution. This 1989 Milano Verde for sale in New York represents the final year the Milano came to the US.

These 1980s Alfas are not the simplest vehicles to maintain, but if you're handy with a wrench and have the time to invest or know a good specialist and are willing to invest the money, they can be a unique practical classic, for those needing a bit more space than a sports car. Those considering a Milano in good condition can expect to pay in the range of $4,500 to $7,000 these days, representing a lot of Italian flair for not much cash.
