    GT6 engine with o/d box. Loads of money spent.

    I looked at this back in 2016 when it was being sold by a trader and it was in superb condition then. He had it marked up at £6,495 at the time of sale.

    Current asking price £7,950

    Must admit I've never seen that many Alfa Romeo badges on a car, even an actual Alfa......

    Why does it not overheat with all the grill badges? But a nice looker if a bit pricey.

    It's appears that the majority of Roadsters that overheat are those fitted with the 'B' series engine. Is that because there are more of them out there and they are documented to a greater degree?
    My first Roadster [with 'A' series engine ] certainly didn't, nor did My Alfa engined one, though that had a great big finned alloy sump!

    With regard to the abundance of Badges - less is more in my book. You can make it look like a dog's danglie's if you go too far.

    I have had 2 'B' series Roadsters in the past and neither overheated, even when we took one to France.

    Hi Liz/Doug
    Not saying they all suffer, it's just appears that those that have a problem seem to be those with that engine.
