We photographed this 1987 Alfa Romeo Milano Gold in the same generic self-service junkyard as the Saab 96 V4 that we featured yesterday. While the 96 was in the vintage car section, the Milano was stuffed away at the far end of the lot with other European and Japanese imports.
At first glance, we thought this Milano’s front end had gotten its demonic appearance from an engine fire but we popped the hood and, much to our surprise, the 2.5-liter V6 engine was intact. Still, it appears to have been too close to an open flame as the passenger side tail lamp has started to melt from the outside.
A look through the paperwork in the glovebox revealed that this Milano was last registered in the state of Wyoming and that the 93,000 miles displayed on the odometer are most likely original. Just about every part was present when we took the photos (though we grabbed the emblems to add to our collection) so it has a massive amount of potential as a parts car. Milanos are rare on the road and even rarer in yards, if time allows we’ll go back in the following days and pull some parts for our own Milano. Need anything? Shoot us an email and we’ll see what we can do.
