We are pleased to present a rather rare, righthand drive,
example of the 105 series Alfa Romeo 1750 Berlina. Built in South
Africa on 23rd December 1969, this particular Berlina
was imported into the UK in 2008 and first registered here on
17th October 2008. On inspection, it may be seen that
the coachwork is in excellent order and presented in the attractive
colour of Spazzio Azzurro with contrasting black interior trim. The
1750's bodywork has been subject to a lower half bare-metal
re-paint with any repairs required having been facilitated to the
highest standards. The 1750 engine, considered the best of the
range by the Alfisti, has also been subject to a top-end overhaul
in 2015 whilst an electric fan and push starter button have also
been added. The interior is in very good order with an attractive
layout of instrumentation with all the gauges working correctly;
even the clock works. On a recent test drive, this Alfa Romeo drove
with ease, the steering being precise, the engine pulling smoothly
and the longer wheelbase 105 chassis, over its Giulia siblings,
providing a stable, comfortable and quiet ride; the quietness, no
doubt, due to new door seals having been recently fitted. This Alfa
Romeo 1750 Berlina has a history file that includes, invoices,
period South African coins found under the carpets, a UK V5
registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until
1st April 2017. The vendor is an avid Alfa Romeo fan and
a member of the UK Alfa Romeo Owner's Club, the car being featured
in this year's club calendar. 

This is the first of the Berlina series and is considered the
most attractive with famous owners ranging from European Royalty to
the revolutionary Fidel Castro and you're certainly not likely to
come across another in the supermarket car park. With the
capability to carry four passengers and luggage in comfort with GT
performance, this 1750 being offered with no reserve, surely offers
an opportunity to enter into Alfa Romeo ownership at a fraction of
GT prices.
