and Michael's Alfasud 1.5
Miranda and Michael Goebel from Holland have bought this Alfasud 1.5
in 1990. It was their first Alfa Romeo. It was immatriculated for the first
time the 26th of May 1981. Before they bought the car it was in the property
of an aunt who had bought it from the mother of a friend before. After
Miranda and Micheal had bought the car in 1990 they gave it a respray in
the orginal colour bianco 015. Some spares were also
needed to make the car a good daily transport. The Ti-rearspoiler had already
been mounted in 1981 when it was delivered to the first owner. In 1993
the Alfasud stopped because Miranda and Micheal couldn't afford the maintanance. But they never thought about selling the car! In 2002
they remembered their Alfasud and decided to use it again. After a the
car had been overhauled, it has been in daily use since October 2002.
The rearspoiler is not the only Ti-feature which found its way into this Alfasud 1.5. It also has a leather steering wheel which was originally installed into a 1.5 Ti QV, and an oil pressure gauge and water temperature gauge. In October 2002 the engine of an Alfasud Ti 1.5 with 95 bhp had been installed. The old radiator grille had been exchanged by a new one which originally belongs to a series II Alfasud Super. In its 21 years, the Alfasud has made 122.000 km the hands of its three owners. It runs perfectly since the brake system, the suspension and the exhaust had been overhauled. A new clutch was mounted, too. The only thing that is still missing are original wheels. The Goebels are still searching. If you can offer them the original steel wheels, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
