Description
 
Attention Spider Enthusiasts! Do not confuse this listing with any other spider. This is a June delivery yet to be fully completed, from the acclaimed Roadster Salon. Choice of Automatic or 5sp manual transmission!



This lovely Spider is fully sorted, and the restoration work is warantied. Final exterior and interior leather color may still be selected prior to delivery.



Please note that this is a limited production Lusso model, which features optional luxury equipment, fuel injection, and the look of vintage spiders from the late 1960"s Fiat Spider models. Fewer than five of these special cars are built each year, and all come with a commerative signed plate. Bumpers are cosmetic and do not meet contemporary 5 mph standards.



Car pictured is recent completion to same specifications. VIN number 124CS000173310 for proposed car.



We have a second rust free chassis in automatic-- available for this project if a manual transmission is not preferred.



This proposed Spider will be built to an Avanzato standard, which includes premium paint and advanced mechanical work that is optional on lesser models.




The 'Lusso' Edition Features Include:

Premium cloth canvas top replaces standard vinyl
Stainless steel European front and rear bumpers with custom mounts
15" Spider Europa alloy wheel imported from Germany with high performance low profile tires
Chrome package which includes dual vintage mirrors, revised front grille and fascia
Upgraded Avanti leather interior package
Upgraded interior trim
Dual chrome tipped Ansa exhaust system
Nardi Italian wood steering wheel, shift knob and trim
European lowering kit with custom revised suspension




About Roadster Salon



Since 1999, Roadster Salon has been the Premier restorer of Fiat / Pininfarina spiders in the US. Typically, our cars are built to order from our selection of donor inventory. Each car is lovingly restored to a high standard, faithful to the original example. Customers may select options to tailor their car to specific tastes.



Further details about Roadster Salon Classic Convertible Recreations can be reviewed on our web site. The build process generally takes 12-16 weeks, and there is currently a waiting list. Consequently, nearly all our cars are built to order, and only a scant few are available for sale each year to the general public that were not pre-ordered.



To our knowledge, Roadster Salon currently maintains the largest selection of Fiat and Pininfarina chassis' ready for restoration in the North America (and possibly the World). Please contact us about your interest in a project more custom tailored to your specific needs.

Overview



Our full cosmetic and mechanical restoration process is currently being undertaken, and the end result will be simply stunning. Detailed information about what this process entails can be found on our web site, and partially itemized below.



The leather upgrade package features premium leather seats and head rests, leather door panels, pulls, accents, and leather rear wings. In keeping with the original theme, choice of vintage premium German loop carpet or Wilton wool is included. The signature Rosso Corsa Ferrari exterior color, with tan caprone leather is one of the most popular combinations ever offered on this model. Other color options can be screened on our web site.



Cosmetic Impressions



Every Roadster Salon car is completely disassembled prior to paint. Body lines are taught, and new metal is used to repair any imperfections. Media blasting is standard practice on Avanzato and Ultimo level spiders. All are carefully blocked and sanded to a show quality finish, then wet sanded and buffed before being re-assembled. The color combination is ideal for warm climates.



We can't say enough about the leather interior upgrade. All key surfaces were covered by hand with premum leather--cut from the same premium hyde. No color match issues. Workmanship is to a Ferrari/Masterati standard. Bellissimo. Car has an optional leather rear seat available which can be added for an upcharge. Standard rear seat is vinyl. Hand sewn leather dash and center console have been added as an option.



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, transmission and suspension are crisp and tight follwing a complete Avanzato rebuild. A custom made contemporary air conditoning system with redesigned heat and ventillation is an available option.



Note All Avanzato level cars have the engine and transmission-out full rebuild, optional on lesser projects.



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



Pricing


Roadster salon carefully hand crafts about 30 cars per year, detailed to the specifications of each customer. There recently has been a huge upswing in the classic car market for vintage spiders, with recent sales nearing $50,000 for special interest models.



However, It 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, workmanship, and warranty, Roadster Salon Spiders are one of the great values in the market today.
