  Vehicle history: The current owner got the vehicle in 2003. It was traded for an 1800cc Alfa Romeo Alfetta engine and a set of Ronal A1 6Jx14 inch wheels. The status of the vehicle seems pretty fair but it is a mixture of some types. The front seats seem to be coming from a 3rd series Sud. The steering wheel is from an Alfasud TI and has a centre cover which belongs in a first series Sud. In the dashboard there are Alfasud TI dials. The trunk has an Alfa Romeo badge which shouldn't be there originally and a rather strange handle to open the trunk. The original handle which is supposed to be below the licence plate is gone. The most peculiar item of this car is that it has the 1350cc engine from a type 904B2 whilst the documents of the car and the VIN number say it should be a 904B. Either the engine was replaced at some point in time or something weird happened in the Alfa assembly line. The luggage room (side walls and floor) are in pristine condition. It looks like it has never been used. Also the rubber flooring in the passenger compartment is still in tact.

Alfasud 3rd series  or Alfetta velvet chairs?

 

Pristine condition of wheel arch covers and luggage area floor.

 

 
 

Alfa Romeo badge and strange handle on trunk, the Alfasud script is a feature that belongs one a 904A and not on a 904B.

The vehicle condition appears to be very sound.

Rubber flooring still in tact. TI gauges and steering wheel. 904A gear lever knob and steering wheel centre cap.

The pull strap broken for the left front door. A very common problem for 1st & 2nd series Suds.
