Just as the models that came before it from the 60's and 70's like the Duetto, Alfa Romeo Spider models from the mid-1980's are now the next vintage convertible to attain collectible status. In particular, the Spider Quadrifoglio version, with custom hard top, 15" alloy wheels and upgraded interior has become the most sought after example. The 1986-88 model years with Bosch fuel injection, properly sorted, and with low miles are the holy grail of this sub-group of Spiders.
The time and material spent on a full Roadster Salon restoration can easily turn an affordable driver into a high priced show car. This particular spider was in excellent original condition on arrival. We took exception to the red over gray color scheme with the interior, and installed new hand stitched leather components in the more traditional Ferrari Saddle. The result speaks for itself.
Our goal was to keep the selling price of this lovely car in a range where most people could justify the cost. Aside from the refreshed interior, attention was paid to the exterior as well. While the original paint was in excellent condition, it needed to be tidied up in a few areas. This work was done expertly, and followed with a fresh wet sand and buff.
Mechanically, the car has been fully sorted from end to end. Call us for a complete list of the service and repair work performed. All wear items such as brakes, tires, hoses, bushings, and important gaskets have been replaced. The car qualifies for our exclusive warranty, which adds tremendous value and peace of mind.
Overall, this is a very low mile example that can be shown or driven. It has not been taken to a ridiculous extreme, where it can no longer be practically enjoyed. Our goal was to keep the car within the NADA trading rage, without having to justify any over the top restoration costs. The end result is a Spider that can be driven with confidence, but without concern that a small ding or scratch might significantly diminish the innate value of the car.
