Introduction

Tom Brett
Content Editor

With over one million produced, this is Alfa’s most successful model, a rare sight to see on the roads today!

The small family car was in Alfa Romeo's line up from 1971 to 1989. Set in a period Alfasud green and brown interior, you wouldn't expect anything less stylish from the Italians. Many people consider this to be the original hatchback, others debate less and just fall in love with them due to the driving excellence from a relatively small package.

The car is named ‘lusso’, meaning ‘luxury’, some upgrades to the standard "normale" spec. A very adorable car, Jason the owner, recommissioned the car through an exterior and mechanical renovation.

The car looks stunning and is definitely a good prospect for a runaround classic in today’s market. The work has made sure this car will tick along for miles to come, and with more TLC if the new owner wishes then the rest of the car will be tip top!

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Jason, the owner, and having photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

After reviving much of the car and enjoying working on it for 8 months, I am now looking to find the little Alfa a new and loving home.

Jason has provided us with loads of photos that fully document the car, including the welding work he carried out. Also, the car was sent off for a full respray and mechanical overhaul making it a great everyday classic to enjoy and use.

Overall, Jason has really transformed the Alfa into a very respectable classic that can be driven and enjoyed - ready to create new memories.

Exterior

Pretty as a picture - a joyful and slightly eccentric classic runaround to use and enjoy.

Wheels and Tyres

Classic 13” steel wheels with excellent condition hub caps. The wheels are wrapped with Firestone F-560 all round, plenty of tread and shape. In the 'Mechanics' section, we mention a brake overhaul too.

Green and cream? Just like a pistachio and vanilla gelato - very Italian.

Bodywork

Please look at all the photos in the exterior section for the full condition of all panels. Jason mentions to us the front inner flitches were corroded, so all rust was cut out and new repair panels were fabricated and welded in. In all respect, shut lines and panel gaps look good.

Remember this is an Alfa of the '70s, so rust is always on your mind. However, the car looks to be free from and significant rust, especially in the usual weak spots, and you can see evidence in the photos and videos that remedial work through welding by Jason and subsequent respray has taken place.

Paint

Green looks great when driving through town for passers-by, complementing the chrome work and Italian ethos.

Jason mentions car may not have been prepared correctly prior to the recent respray as much as he would have desired, leaving some odd bits across some panels and edges, please see the photos. He would love to give it another go but has other jobs on the horizon.

The car looks to have had thick layers of paint applied, so perhaps a bit of elbow grease cutting back will reduce some of the orange peel and improve the shine.

Glass and Trim

Glass and seals in very good condition.

Chrome work generally shining and free from pitting except around the glass edges.

Interior

The interior keeps in line with that Italian style and comfort!

Seats and Carpets

Brown vinyl seats are in very good condition across the car, just with a slight tear (front) and hole (rear) on the drivers seat. Carpets and lower interior area are clean and presentable for sale.

Please view the photos, you will see the passenger door card may need to be looked at.

All seals look clean and in good condition.

Dashboard

Very simple dashboard from the mass-produced hatch, we love the ‘Alfasud’ detailing.

Dials and gauges are clearly legible having been maintained well.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

What looks to be the original steering wheel and levers, in line with the mileage and age of the car, look great on this car - could a potential future refurbishment await?

Mechanics

Even back when this little car was made, Alfa Romeo stood for 'mechanics through emotion'.

Engine and Gearbox

Using a 1.2 (1186 cc) boxer-4 engine, expect a steady drive on short to medium journeys leisurely. Jason has mentioned to us a mechanical and brake overhaul had been commissioned during his ownership. New clutch master and slave cylinders, radiator, coolant pump and cambelts finished off with a complete engine service - giving the new owner peace of mind that the main components have been sorted.

The engine bay looks incredible, please see the photos.

Using a functional 4-speed manual gearbox.

Suspension and Brakes

The brakes were overhauled, front and rear calipers were refurbished, using new piston seals on the front and new pistons and seals on the rear, brake pipes were all replaced too.

We think the underside looks great and seems free from any significant corrosion.

Featuring an elaborate suspension setup for a car in its class: MacPherson struts at the front and a beam axle with Watt's linkage at the rear.

The Drive

An adorable car the is ready to drive and enjoy.

A low bonnet line awaits for a true drivers' feel of the road and excellent performance for its engine size, that is complemented through a low centre of gravity.

This is the original hatchback, now’s time to impress.

Electrics and Other

We are assured by Jason the car starts well and other than that, the electrical features on the car remain minimal.

Jason will be free to talk about the works on the car if required - just ask him a question in the comments below.

History and Paperwork

Jason has injected new life into this stunning little Alfa Romeo.

After being restored by Jason, he is looking to find the Alfasud a passionate new owner who will get behind the wheel. Coming with loads of paperwork and memorabilia that has been added by Jason to add to the provenance of this fun hatchback. Prior to Jason, there have been 6 former keepers.

Jason has recently had the car MOT'd with no advisories, expiring September 2021, although the car is MOT exempt.

Checks carried out by us: Photo ID of the seller - V5 checked against seller's photo ID - HPi checked and clear.
