1983 Alfa Romeo Spider 2.0
This is a handsome looking, great little driver that someone looking to get into Italian cars can step into that collector world for cheap.
She looks great in her new Rosso Red paint and runs out very well too.
The owner of this car purchased her at auction and then decided he didn't want her so I've been asked to get it sold for him.
As a Spider Veloce she came standard with the 2 litre DOHC 4 cyl, that stock, put out 115 HP. It's mated to the original 5 speed manual gearbox. Also standard for the Veloce trim package was a leather interior, power windows and 4 wheel power disc brakes wrapped by aluminum wheels. It did NOT have power steering though.
In 83 the Spider got Bosch electronic fuel injection to replace the mechanical Spica set up, this really helped reliabilty.
So, this fun little Italian sports car runs and drives great and would be a nice addition to the garage.
She does have some foibles though.
It seems as though the fresh paint and new top were done in order to sell her quickly at auction. The pretty surface hides some rust in the driver floor and on the right side, a crunched sub-frame rail that looks like the car was dropped onto a jack stand. The light tan seat covers hide the brown leather seats that have some cracks and tears and the entire interior shows some wear of the 156,000 indicated miles.
The cool news is that she can be easily driven and enjoyed as she is and do the repair work as you can, making her better and better with each new bit added/replaced.
Asking price to bring this Italian beauty home is just $6500 or best offer.
Any questions, to schedule a time to see her in person, for many more photos and video, or to make an offer, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Thanks for the interest.
