The car: 1983 Alfa Romeo Alfasud Ti

Price: £9,800 (or near offer)

Location: Reading, England, UK

Seller’s Info: Click Here

From 1972 through 1983, Alfa Romeo produced more than 567,000 Alfasuds; the Italian manufacturer also generated 156,000 of the quicker Ti-badged cars, such as the one you see here. Ironically, this brown hot-hatch was originally sold by the Black and White Garage dealership in the last model year of the Alfasud’s production run. Since then, it has accumulated only 29,000 miles (as well as MOT coverage good until April 29 of next year).

Its current owner, one of only three, describes it as being in “excellent condition.” The Giugiaro-styled body has never been welded and the front and rear calipers–which are connected to inboard brakes–have recently been reconditioned. They help scrub off speed picked up during spirited driving, for which the Alfasud’s chassis and handling hardware are well-suited, according to period journalist reviews. Under the hood is a twin-cam flat-four engine with dual carburetors. That boxer power plant drives the front wheels.

Hi, I still owe a rust free Alfasud QV 105 hp from 1983. It’s always a pleasure to drive this car, especially on curvy roads. And the sound of the boxer engine is mind-blowing. The car is nowadaxs extremely rare and it’s very difficult to find spare parts.

I had a ’72 Sud as my first car. I loved it. Underpowered but handled fantastic.
Was great until the front fire wall rusted through and the steering rack “Was just floating about on it’s own”

Wonderful cars, a box of parts that come to together in a fully integrated whole. All aspects match, all components match. Long drives leave you wanting to get back in and go again. You’d need constant rust proofing though!

I owned a ’74 Alfetta and it made me believe that the Italians had ways of making plastic rust. Turned out, it wa a supply of russian steel in exchange for the Lada factory that gave them such a bad name. Probably by the time this one was made they were using good steel. a friend had a couple of these and he loved them.

I love these cars. An ex-coworker of mine had an ’84 Ti QV with the twin Webers. The sound was unbelievable. Sort of like a WRX crossed with a swarm of bees.

I love it. Such an odd Alfa, but all Alfas are kind of odd in some ways. My girlfriend’s dad had one, he let me drive his daughter about sometimes, I had a lot of fun with and in that car. Till it rusted away. Frankly, I’m surprised to hear any ‘Sud survives today, that car you could hear it rusting from the day one.
