Exhaust system was custom built at Magnaflow, and this actual car was chosen, and used for the prototyping of Alfa SS complete systems. The car was later returned to them for dyno testing, and fitting of a production system. This system is sold for about $700.
Windshield washer system replaced with electric system, with push button on center console.
Fan and fan shroud replaced.
Upgraded front and rear sway bars, are Skankle Race items.
Front is AL4724, and Rear is AL4728, and both are fitted with polyurethane bushes.
There is a slight oil leak from rear of the engine, not unusual, and I think she is just marking her territory!
As stated the paint is 25 years old, and whilst it looks great from 5', they are chips, scratches, minor dings, and blemishes. They were difficult to photograph, without becoming myopic. I feel it is a driver, and so was less important to me. The paint color was professionally matched and each chip, or scratch, etc, was touched up. I suggest you view the car so you can see yourself.
Windshield is good, but does have a few small chips and some light wiper marks, that I am told will polish out.
Side glasses are good and manual windows are quick and smooth, as the regulators are newer.
Top is older, rear window is pretty clear, but has small split behind driver.
