This Alfa Romeo Sprint Speciale is for sale in Long Beach, California.   Seller states the car is a matching numbers car which is excellent.   The VIN  AR 10120 00524 and comes with an complete tool kit.    Its been sitting for 13 year and the seller is ready to let it go.   The seller also states there can be rust found under the rear shelf of window and driver’s door threshold.   It looks like a good start for a restoration project.   These are such pretty cars and I always see at least one at Pebble Beach being judged every year.   This would be a fun project to take on.
