Is it a bargain. The front door fit looks a bit dodgy, especial when you notice the paint damage on the b-pillar. Its an older restoration, so it's likely that it was not done to todays standards, and it looks like it has got cover sills on it. Lots of splendid underseal on the sills and in the arches. I think you would need a good inspection before parting with any cash first, and would probably be better off buying an unrestored basket case, as then you know what you are starting with, with no hidden surprises to find.

I think it's priced about right if you want a car you can go to shows and not worry to much about people getting to close to it. Or bung in a cage, a couple of seats, some harnesses, a Brantz and go on some classic rallies and regularities.

Quite like that, looks honest, even the black paint job over original “Poo colour” (as my wife always refers to it) doesent seem to detract..

With its overseas history, I wonder if it’s the car from that Dunlop promo film 🤔

Probably more likely to be the Alfa shade 'Giallo Ochre', as used on the 105 Series Giulia Coupes.
