Alpo Romero: 1972 Alfa Romeo 2000 Berlina

This is one of those Craigslist finds where I pause and consider if I really want to publicize the vehicle on offer or keep it to myself.  It's said that real Alfisti drive Berlinas.  I don't know if it is true or not, but finding one that isn't a basket of rust or for sale for a Kings Ransom is something to be noted.  Find this 1972 Alfa Romeo 2000 Berlina for sale in North Bend, WA for $6,250 via craigslist.



From the seller:

This is a 1972 Alpha Romayo (according to Siri). It is a local car. It has very minimal rust. The only repair it would need would be the right front jacking point. It runs very well. When we recommissioned it, we had to replace the brake calipers and master cylinder as well as the clutch and slave cylinders. We also put in a new brake and clutch pivot shaft in the pendulum assembly. It now runs well. Drives well The transmission shifts very well. The clock actually works. The dashboard has a cover but is cracked. One of the door panels is torn but could be repaired.

Please don't waste my time with scams. It is not fun. I will recognize it. I have already had two attempts and I just posted it.

  1. As a past owner of four Alfas of assorted models I definitely carry the weakness gene for the brand. I've not tried a Berlina yet, so they remain a mystery to me, especially the white competition number circle fields on this one's front doors... does this indicate vintage racing capability or is it there for Uber advertising?

  3. North Bend is the small town that doubles as Twin Peaks for several locations in the TV series. The RR Cafe, Big Ed's Gas Farm, and a few other exterior locations were in North Bend.

    That's a damn fine cup of Alfa! And HOT!

  4. It’s true ... real Alfisti’s drive sedans.

    Having owned several Alfa’s, the Berlina’s are the nicest driving of the 105/115 Alfa’s.


    Of all the cars i own, all of which are Italian exotics, the Berlina is my favorite. It’s a shame there are so few of these left.
