Wouldn't have a clue to be honest.
I was going on 50k to restore and paint and 25k for a good needing little work.

Their expensive to restore.

I see your 75k, surely untouched original then carries a premium over restored? But it isn't the most desirable model or colour...
Interesting.

How's your suspension refurb coming along Robert?

I'm looking at one with the view to restore tomorrow... Besides the obvious rust/panel/paint, can you give me some insight on what aspects makes them expensive to restore? And any particularly hard to source/expensive bits I should take extra note of during inspection?

Thanks

John

Original wins every time and carries a big premium in price. Doesn't matter what classic you are looking at.

step nose kicks all the boxes but the 2000 has the grunt and the brakes you want.

John  my car will start the suspension soon as a friends spider is now done. To restore one can restore panels ,better off buying from the 2 UK parts dealers Classic Alfa and Alahfolics. All bits can be bought when buying a car make sure its never had a rear prang,never the same weak point ,you ant a car with cut lines still in the panels.
