This 1973 Alfa Romeo Berlina was reportedly sold new in Ontario, where it remains today with its current owner of 32 years. The car is powered by a fuel-injected 2.0L inline-four that was rebuilt with new bearings, pistons, gaskets, and more in 2017. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual gearbox, and the body is finished in gold over a black interior.

The exterior is said to have been repainted in its current gold years ago, bright trim includes small bumpers with overriders as well as a Marini driver-side mirror.

Silver 14″ wheels are equipped with polished hubcaps and mounted with Pirelli P4 tires.

The cabin is trimmed in black with matching carpets and a white perforated headliner. The doors are equipped with pivoting quarter windows and reflectors at their lower corners. The dashboard features black plastics with woodgrain inserts as well as an empty radio slot.

Controls include a wood-rimmed steering wheel, a matching backward-mounted shift knob, and top-hinged pedals. Jaeger instruments feature chrome bezels and include a tachometer, an oil pressure gauge, a 140-mph speedometer, and a 5-digit imperial odometer showing 64k miles.

The twin-cam 2.0L inline-four was rebuilt with a new crankshaft, rod bearings, pistons, and liners by Pinarello Motori of Woodbridge, Ontario 2k miles ago in 2017. The cylinder head was overhauled with new valves and used camshafts, and the timing chain was replaced. A used SPICA injection pump was installed along with new injector seals. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission, which the seller states need to be shifted slowly into second gear until it warms up.

A multi-page invoice in the gallery details the 2017 work, which also included replacement of the ignition components, recoring the radiator, resurfacing the flywheel, and replacement of the clutch disc. A starter and battery were reportedly fitted in preparation for the sale.
