Alfa romeo 33 1.7s 16v - Is it worth investing in it?

Hello, I have found a spot on Alfa 33 1.7 16v red with only 46000km on the clock. All original, the interior is like new and the paint is the original except of a front wing but no accidents. I am wondering is that an investment car in say 5-10 years? The price is very low.

Wouldn't buy it with the mindset that it'll be an investment. At best it'll increase in value enough to cover the cost of the never ending repairs and maintenance an old Alfa (or a new one) would require. If you like it then buy it and enjoy depreciation free motoring if you keep it nice and assuming you don't overpay at the start.
