Topping the model range upon its debut, the Alfa Romeo Sport Sedan was a part of the Alfetta series which represented a significant departure from Alfa Romeo’s tradition with a unique design where the transmission and differential were integrated into a single unit located at the rear of the car. This design contributed to a near 50/50 weight distribution between the front and rear axles, allowing for engaging driving dynamics and spirited performance. Finished in Bianco over a burgundy leather interior, this 1979 example is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Florida.
The Sport Sedan offers an elegant yet sport-oriented appearance through sharp lines which define the grille, hood, and fender contours, as well as a gently sloped roof line for an aerodynamic stance. This example comes finished in Bianco (008) and equipment includes black and chrome-finished trim, quad circular headlamps, integrated front air intakes, a central Alfa Romeo crested grille, a driver’s side rearview mirror, rear side markers, and Sport Sedan badges. It rides on 15” aftermarket wheels dressed in Kumho tires from 2018 with approximately 85% tread remaining, and the seller adds that the factory wheels will accompany the sale. Additional images are provided in the gallery.
The cabin presents burgundy leather upholstery contrasted with a black dashboard and polished wood veneers. Equipment includes bucket-style front seats, a 3-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel, steering wheel-mounted turn signals, an air conditioning system, and an AM/FM stereo. The seller notes some signs of wear, and all gauges, electronics, and accessories are working properly.
The Sport Sedan derives power from a 2.0-liter DOHC inline four-cylinder engine producing approximately 120 HP to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission. The transmission and differential are housed at the rear of the car for optimal weight distribution, as used on the Alfetta 158/159 Grand Prix cars. The seller adds that routine service has been carried out under their ownership, and there are currently no outstanding maintenance items.
This sale will include a clean title, a toolkit, and a set of factory wheels.
The seller would like you to know: “This all original Alfetta is in amazing survivor condition. And it's a blast to drive.”
