Alfa Romeo has been tugging at the heartstrings of car enthusiasts since 1910, and we aren't sure there's another car that is more attractive than the Italian styling and presence of a 105 "Step-front," today considered to be highly collectible and one of the most beautiful automotive designs of the 1960s.
Not only was the Alfa stepnose an image maker, it was also an impressive road-goer. From the moment you dropped into the driver's seat, you were in a different world—the world of the true continental enthusiast. The driving position was right, the steering wheel felt as if it wanted to be caressed rather than just held, the seat held you in all the right places, and even the seat belt, with its fluted webbing, instilled confidence.
The five-speed gearbox was one of the smoothest and easiest to use, making a delight of changing gear, and the twin-cam motor always gives that unique sporty roar as it breathes through the twin 45 DCOEs. The tight pedal box enables you to flutter the accelerator on downshifts with the slightest movement from your heel.
Proudly on offer is this special Australian Delivered 105 step-nose kept in the beautiful combination of Muschio Verde exterior paint over a Nero interior.
The most exciting aspect of this little step-nose is the 1750cc GTV engine with high-lift cams, stainless extractors, and an uprated airbox wonderfully tuned and balanced to the 45 mm Weber Carburetors, giving this car the wonderful raspy notes we've all come to love.
A little bit of Italian exotica that is just as at home on your favorite mountain road, surprising much bigger cars with its nimble road holding and getting second looks from people walking past it as it's parked outside your favorite Italian restaurant.
Owning and driving this classic Alfa will only create an exciting experience. Intensity mixed with finesse and beauty.
