Being a 1750, this car should be powered by the 1750cc version of the venerable Alfa-Nord DOHC four. Some say this is the sweetest of the Alfa four family, what it lacks in the torque of the later two liter, it makes up for with more rev-y-ness. Yet more useless Alfa trivia that you can use to scare away party guests is that the 1750 was named as such to hark back to the illustrious Jano designed 1750's of the 1930's, but the engine really displaced 1779cc's. Unfortunately, this car has had it's engine replaced with a later 2 liter engine with Webers instead of Dell'Orto's. It would be interesting to see if it had the correct Euro intake, but no engine shots are included in the ad.
This car looks like it has been in Washington for quite a while with the old pre-1989 Washington license plates and long out of business Alfa dealer Grand Prix Motors plate frame. Or someone has been visiting garage sales...
