Fortunately I was able to sell my green Spider to a local buyer who saw the car at the repair shop. I was selling the car locally as I am also doing with this car.   Now it's time to sell my last Spider in order to pay mounting medical bills. I am more emotionally attached to this car because I am smitten by the power of the engine and its incredible driving dynamics.   It drives like a well sorted Spider should.   The suspension is taught and the steering an absolute delight.   It is by far the most powerful Spider I have ever owned.   The engine was rebuilt to European specs by an accomplished engineer who spared no expense to make it a solid and robust power-plant.   It can push you back into your seat.   According to the engineer it is making near 150 horsepower.   After spending thousands to make it look and drive as good as it runs. it is now a new owner's opportunity to enjoy the fruits of our labor.

Great running and driving low mileage Spider that has received great attention in order make it look and drive like a new car.   The engine has been upgraded to high performance standards that puts its power on par with modern cars.   The rocker panels. lower fender areas. jacking points and floors are solid.   The huge rubber rear bumper was replaced with an earlier model stainless bumper.  It has headlight covers in good condition.  The top works well and is not ripped. The rear plastic window is not clear. but can be seen through.    The speedometer and tachometer work perfectly.   All gauges plus heater fan and wipers work correctly as well.  The driver seat was reupholstered.   The original floor rubber mats are in excellent condition.   The gas tank was cleaned and treated with POR 15.  The cylinder head was taken to a professional cylinder head shop with the right tools do a valve job and correctly install and ream new valve guides.   New European cams from International Auto Parts were fitted to the heads and correctly adjusted. The cams were the standard grind for a carburetor car.  It has a new head gasket and gasket set. of course. and the head does not leak.  Early model year 2. 0L cast headers were fitted.   The SPICA fuel injection was replaced with a set of Dellorto carburetors.   The Alfa has all new hoses. tune up parts. water pump. motor mounts. fuel pump. and fuel pressure regulator. The engine runs very well. idles well. does not have flat spots in acceleration. and does not smoke on acceleration. deceleration.  or consume out-of-spec quantities of oil.  Oil pressure is excellent.  It does not overheat.   The transmission has a good clutch with smooth action and no slipping. The transmission has no grinding in second gear or any other gear either upshifting or downshifting.  It is the smoothest Alfa gearbox that I've driven.  The stock exhaust system is two years old.  The brakes work well with ceramic pads on all four corners recently installed.   All tires (195/60H X 14 inch wheels) are new (including the spare) and mounted on period correct Cromodora wheels.   This is a great running solid Alfa that has had all of the right mechanical things done to it.  

Recent work included a premium respray by M & S Body Collision . nc. . Jupiter. FL.   Also completed by European Car Performance Service. Inc. . Stuart. FL was front suspension work. reconditioning of the drive shaft. nbsp; brakes. electrical system. and installation of new rear end. transmission and engine seals and a full service including a brake and clutch fluid flush.   This is a magnificent Spider that will stand out from the pack and provide the new owner with years of fun without costly repair bills.   I'm asking a fair price based on its condition and desirability.  

Will be dropping the car off next week to clear up a recent electrical fault.  

Please email me and I will give you my telephone number so we can speak about the car.   Of course it will be available for test drives or inspections if you wish.   Inspection costs will be the buyer's responsibility.
