Elias' Alfasud 1.2 SC 5-porte

Alfasud 1.2 SCAlfasuds have become rare in Greece. This is one of the survivors. It is a 1982 Alfasud 1.2 SC five-door. Its owner Elias Floros got it from his father who owned three Alfasuds when Elias still was a child. The posilipo blue one on this website is the last of the three and remained in the family. His father got his first Alfasud when Elias was born - it replaced a Fiat 127 which had become too small for the grown family.

The 1.2 SC with four doors and tailgate - or simply 5 porte (Italian for five doors) - is a quite rare version of the series III Alfasud. It was not sold all arround Europe.
While the standart series III Alfasud 1.2 still had the old series II dashboard and smaller (plastic) bumpers than the 1.3 and 1.5 versions, the SC (meaning Super Comfort) features all the trim and equipment of ist more powerful sisters. In addtion it has a slightly more powerful engine because it inherited the series I Alfasud ti's engine with 68 bhp and one double barrel carburettor. Unfortunately this engine is combined with a long transmission ratio gearbox which eliminates all the verve of this little engine.

The engine

Elias' car has been modified with a more powerful twin-carb-engine, alloy wheels, Ti headlights, a sport muffler, additional gauges for oil pressure and water temperature, aluminium pedals and a wooden steering wheel. So nearly all the trim of series III Ti is there.
