Cosmetic Impressions

Every Roadster Salon car is completely disassembled prior to paint. Body lines are taught, nd new metal is used to repair any imperfections. Bead blasting is standard practice on cars without original paint. All are carefully blocked and sanded to a show quality finish, hen wet sanded and buffed before being re-assembled. The color combination is ideal for warm climates.

We can't say enough about our leather interior upgrades. Hand crafted by true artisans, hese interiors have no equal. All key surfaces are covered by hand with premum leather, ourced from the same supplier that provides leather to Bentley. Each component is cut from matching hydes. No color match issues. Workmanship in same class as Ferrari-Maserati. Bellissimo. Car is available with an optional leather rear seat, hich can be added for an upcharge.

Mechanical and Driving Impressions

It is a joy to drive a fully sorted classic Italian convertible. Panel fitment is better than when the car came out of the factory. Engine, ransmission and suspension are crisp and tight. A custom made contemporary air conditoning system is an available option.

All Roadster Salon cars are held to a rigid mechanical standard, otethis particular car has the engine out full rebuild option.

Our goal is not to build a $100K trailer queen, ut rather a car that can be casually enjoyed when ever the passion arises. In that regard, ur stirring recreations exceed all reasonable expectations. 10/10.


Roadster Salon carefully hand crafts about 30 cars per year, etailed to the specifications of each customer.There recently has been a huge upswing in the classic car market for vintage spiders, ith recent sales topping $60,000 for restored special interest models.

However, t is important to note that restored automobiles in general should be built for the love and enjoyment of their owners. They are not hugely profitable endeavors--for the builder or reseller. To value a Roadster Salon Spider along side a used Fiat--or measure by a "car guide" is to miss the point of the car entirely.

Considering the quality, orkmanship, nd warranty, oadster Salon Spiders are one of the great values in the market today.
