      Never had leaf springs.

      Those who know later Alfa's should be able to pick the change out pretty easily.

            Newer LSD 4.1 in a 101. The whole nine yards is 105 rear end, except for the brake backing plates.

            In other news, this just popped up. Its just 20 cars newer than mine, I had 1530324, this one is 0344. Mine was the same color and interior.

                I'm holding an 8 lb aluminum flywheel for a 1750 in my hands... Can you say rev happy? This should be fun.

                      What all did you have to do to convert it? All the trailing arms and mounts are different, correct?

                        I completely don't understand the point of that ad. I see a windshield, door glass, and maybe taillight housings that are salvageable...maybe the block. It's not a Veloce, I don't see the VIN being very valuable for a build-from-scratch project.

                        Just pull the good parts and list them. $9500...??? Wut?? That might be a fair condition, non-running, roller price.

                          "Giuseppe Luraghi, to whom this stretch of road is dedicated, had been the president of Alfa Romeo S.p.A. between 1960 and 1974. He died in 1991... At least he hasn't seen what happened to the place he built." - Matteo Licata

                          "Alfa Romeo is not simply a car manufacturer: its cars are something more than conventional cars. There are many car brands, and Alfa has a special place among them. It's kind of an illness, this passion for a means of transportation. It's a way of life, a very peculiar way to conceive a motorized vehicle.

                          "It is something that resists definition. Its elements are like those irrational traits of the human spirit that cannot be explained logically. It is about sensations, passion, all things that have more to do with the heart than the brain."


                          - Orazio Satta Puliga - Alfa Romeo Head of Engineering 1946-1974


                          "...So the disemboweled, rotting carcass of the plant that built Giulias and Alfettas is the place where the Alfisti can come to mourn the death of Alfa Romeo... At least as a company: it even has an official date: December the 31st, 1986. By the 1st day of 1987, Alfa Romeo as an entity had ceased to exist, its assets concentrated with those of former Lancia in the new company Alfa Lancia Industriale that, in the plans of Fiat Auto chief Vittorio Ghidella, would lead the Italian industry's charge against the best competition at the high-end of the car market. We all know how it went: Ghidella lost his power war inside Fiat with Romiti, and was out by 1989. Alfa Lancia would only last until 1992. Competitors could rest easy.

                          "The corpse of Arese is the place where one can feel the pain of the broken promises, the waste of opportunities forever lost... And be reminded that even the grandest of human achievement is, in the infinite scheme of things, as short lived and fragile as we are."
