eBay tat volume 3.

Recommended Posts

I bought this car for my son while he undertook a motor mechanics course at college. He has just completed the course but not the car.

It was a nice plan kid but unfortunately the search for someone to restore your Triumph in return for shelter from the rain must go on

Well, that's my foray into Alfa ownership sorted! :lol:


Cheers Cort! (I think?!) :mrgreen:


They're temperamental big shites those 166's but well worth 500 notes just for the noise alone. If you go to look at it first have a look at the big engine mount on the left hand side top of the engine as if borked (the rubber splits away from the bolt) as ruins they handling and they're about 1.7 billion lira to replace. Also the rear suspension setup is mega complex (you won't believe it until you see it) as it's meant to allow the rear wheels to steer slightly on corners. Have a look for bent suspension arms and worn bushes as it ruins the way they drive and looks seriously involved.
