1983 1500 - with tax & MoT 14 years 6 months ago #12764

1983 X1/9 1500 Alfa Rosso
MOT July 2008 Tax May 2008
78000 mile approx
£450 ono

I have owned this car since November 2005 and have driven it over 20000 miles - it never once failed to get me where I was going.
Bodywork is need of 'attention'! It will require a nearside sill to pass another MOT, and I have been told there is rot on the edge of the floor pan where it meets the sill.
All 4 arches have been repaired to some degree in the past. The bottom of the nearside door is none existent. Someone scraped the nearside from front arch to just in front of rear arch. Front quarter valances are crusty (badly repaired previously; wing tops have a couple of bits of rust coming through; bonnet is OK - just a bit of grot on off-side leading edge; nose cone is probably full of filler as recess for Fiat badge has been filled over; boot is a replacement and is good but for one small bit of rust near near-side hinge.
Interior is reasonable - some stains on vinyll that refuse to come off; carpet is not original; cockpit boars behind seats is not original, but I have one to fit, and also speaker shelf & roll hoop trim, which has been replaced with carpet(!). Roof is 'unlined' but has been 'carpeted'. Front and rear boots have both received the carpet treatment! Leaks into drivers footwell in heavy rain.
All electrics work; radiator is fitted with override switch, as is carb cooling fan (both work automatically as well).



New parts:
front tyres Aug/Sept 2006
rear tyres Oct 2007
front shocks May 2007
rebuilt gearbox Aug 2006 (new clutch at same time) cost €1200 from Fiat dealer in Holland!
battery Feb 2007
re-conditioned alternator March 2006
drive shafts 2006

In summary, mechanically good, bodywork crap, but MOT'd into the summer
