I was trolling around the web for weekend postings, and I just stumbled on to this Alfa Romeo Bulletin Board, filled with interesting Alfa cars and parts for sale. But it was one intriguing listing that caught my eye, and it tied in nicely with Friday’s Question of the day… *What’s History’s Homeliest Italian Sedan? Rob used an image of an Alfa Romeo 6 Sedan for illustration purposes. I didn’t think this particular Alfa was homely, just bland. Well, there is one for sale, and it’s a Turbo Diesel no less… According to the listing within the Bulletin Board:
A very nice example of a 1985 Italian Alfa 6 turbo diesel. Yes, I purchased this car recently with thoughts of enjoying it for some time being both an Alfa lover and a long time diesel driver. However, I have decided to sell as other things have my attention. I purchased this Alfa 6 from a gentleman that I have had the pleasure of buying another odd Alfa; a 1993 Alfa 33 from a few years ago. He is also an Alfa lover and has enjoyed a very neat collection of rare European spec Alfas. The car does have a clear Washington State title.
You may think you know what driving this mid size luxury turbo diesel sedan might feel like….I thought I did. But wow, the car is so smooth and comfortable, what a surprise! I drove the car 2 hours from Albany Ny to my home in Southern Vermont. Then my daughter and I drove it to Boston for an Alfa Owners New England lunch. Yup, it was the only 1985 Alfa 6 turbo diesel there! The asking price from this Alfa enthusiast is $6,500, a price I don’t think is that far off, but then again, it is an Alfa Romeo… This listing has a date of 8/17, so the car may have been sold by now, but you never know.
