Description for Alfa Romeo Spider 1976

For sale is my 1976 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce. It is a Series 2 Spider representing the first update from the Series 1 “Osso di Sepia” model with rounded rear end. The Series 2 model introduced the Kamm tail and is viewed by many as the most attractive of the four series of Spiders.

This is a rare example of a rebuilt Series 2 Spider. The car is finished in red paint, with fully restored black vinyl interior (seats, door trims, carpets, etc). It has a roll-bar fitted for safety and has the original equipment alloy wheels. The engine is the 2000cc version of the classic Alfa Romeo twin-cam engine, fitted with Spica mechanical fuel injection.

I bought the car from its previous owner in California in April 2010.

He had had the car re-built and restored at a cost of over $15, 00 by an Alfa Romeo specialist in Orange County. Engine and suspension were completely rebuilt, and electronic ignition was fitted . The car was repainted, and new trim installed (seats, door panels, side panels and carpet). New rubbers and moldings were fitted and a new convertible top was installed.

The car showed 20, 76 miles when it arrived in Tennessee. I have used the car very little since I bought it, as my heavy travel schedule has taken precedence. Please note that I am not able to guarantee the current odometer reading of 20, 00, as I cannot guarantee that the reading on the car when I received it was accurate.

I have replaced the heavy black US-spec front and rear bumpers with the earlier chrome versions plus a chrome grille. These items were obtained new from Italian Auto Parts in Atlanta in 2011 at a cost of $2, 00. Oil and filters have been changed on a regular basis.

I am now re-locating to the North West of England and, while I would like to take the car with me, a convertible left-hand drive sports car is not a practical proposition for use in that area - where driving is on the left, and there is much rain throughout the year and salted roads in the winter.

I am therefore selling the car with an asking price of $12, 00.

The car is in excellent condition as can be seen from the photographs. It runs well, and all electrics work as they should, and the tires are good. It would benefit from a tune-up as its usage has been so light over the last few years.

The car comes with an indoor dust cover and extensive documentation - rebuild and service notes, handbook, guide books, and a DVD (from the Alfa Romeo Oner’s Club) containing manuals, nbsp; parts list, etc.

Negatives? The car has a few small paint chips, the spare wheel is not reconditioned, and one of the door mirrors has some marks. That’s about all I can think of.

Please let me know if you would like any further information on the car.
