1987 Alfa Romeo Milano

$350 special, with no rims/tires as they were stolen off of it. It starts, though, and can move under its own power, but needs some brake system love and maybe some clutch slave cylinder love. Oh, and uh, the instrument cluster doesn’t work, along with the turn signals or parking lights… not sure why… needs a power window regulator, the left rear door doesn’t open, has an exhaust leak, some rear wheel arch rust, rusted out spare tire well, maybe a couple fuel lines…

bluefool, if the thing runs, you're already a step up on me! Well, considering how much less you paid for it than my GTV6, you're now "two" up on me! <big E36BMWy grin!>

Is that the one that was at a used car lot or something that almost got sent to the junkyard? Nice to see another one on here. :)

Travis_K, yes it was, if you're referring to one in SE Michigan. It is a 'prize' to be sure. The rear brakes are REALLY seized up, and am slowly getting it apart, here and there.

Have you found wheels yet? Id consider selling the ones from my car when i get new tires for the 15'' wheels i bought, but shipping would be a problem. You can get some brand new 15s for like $600.

Love these interesting cars-I hope to see it up and running one day. I know it has a transaxle, is it odd enough to have inboard rear brakes as well? Just cool.

jddeadfuelpumps, Yes, it is odd enough to have inboard rear brakes. When I replaced the calipers on my *first* GTV6, I swore I'd never get involved in such a thing again. Then I bought the Milano, needing TLC on the rear brakes.... then I went in with a buddy on a GTV6 that'll be more track devoted, and it needs a rear caliper removed to get a broken bleeder screw out. I'm an idiot.
