Mint Milano: 1987 Alfa Romeo Milano Gold

In June of this year, Alfa will turn 110 years old.  Over that period, as you would expect, a few different organizations have called Alfa their own. Alfa was first started and owned by a consortium of Milanese businessmen, then rescued by Nicola Romeo, then nationalized by Mussolini, then sold by the government to FIAT and now merged with Peugeot.  Some say the Milano/75 of the 1980's is the last of the real Alfa's, constructed in the Alfa plant outside of Milan, prior to its takeover by FIAT.  Here's your chance to own one of the last of the real Alfa's before the birthday celebrations drive the prices to the stratosphere.  Find this 1987 Alfa Romeo Milano Gold for sale in Berserkly, CA for $8,500 via craigslist.

  1. As a former Milano owner it astounds me what these cars are starting to go for. Still think this is a bit too much for a Gold, but I guess the market will speak to that. Very nice car in a lovely color either way, and one of the best preserved interiors I can remember seeing in one for a while.

  2. Also a former Milano owner. This one is in stunning condition, looks completely stock, even the ride height. I'd say it's a little optimistically priced, but not by too much, for a time capsule. But, most people willing to pay that price bracket for an Alfa are usually not considering a Milano.
