 *Original Survivor*
  For sale is this beautiful 1987 Alfa Romeo Spider Graduate (20th anniversary car for the movie "The Graduate") untouched from the rest of the world as you know it. This car has been garaged kept and has been very well cared for. Car is 90% all original. Have original parts that came off car in a box. This 1987 Alfa Romeo Spider is a true survivor. Top is new. Top is stayfast cloth. and not cheap vinyl. Tires are brand new. Car is fully documented and comes with all booklets. manuals. tool kit. and dealership brochure. Car has receipt records in red folder. its got everything in there. I was even surprised.  Car has had lowering racing springs (not cheap springs. its the good ones) installed to put it back to Italy specs so its not 'jacked up' looking like USA specs (have the receipts). The car has A/C. This car is a "radio delete car" from factory. Spider has 88K original miles and I'm the 3rd owner. I also have taken the time in finding the original owner of this car. The original owner bought this car new and cared for it 20 years before selling it. He has sent me by mail a few documents to add to the car. One is a letter signed by him about the history behind the car in his ownership. The second and third documents are the original invoice from the dealership when he bought the car new. I also have kept in contact with the second owner and he has been given updates on this car as well. So all the owners of this car can be contacted. I also have the history from the BMV of this car and have it listed below. I have never seen an Alfa Romeo Spider with as much paperwork as this one. This Spider is simply unreal to see. it looks not over 3 maybe 4 years old. Me and my family take this car to car shows. We love to back the car up on the car ramps and throw the big mirrors under it.  The car just talks for itself and shows her beauty to everyone at the shows. People just can't get over that this car is from Ohio and has NEVER left Ohio. Plus all the documents with it is crazy unreal. you never see that. ever. I hear all the time that the paint is simply gorgeous for 30 yrs old. In fact at a car show I've even had a guy say to me. "looks better then my paint. mines 5 yrs old and its been wet sanded". Like I said. this Spider is simply a trailer queen. On distance car shows we do trailer it. Now I would like to add this car has a few little chips which have touch up paint on. but once again this car next year in 2017 is turning 30 yrs old so if your letting that stop you from buying this car. well . your missing the whole point of an original low mile survivor car. This car is not brand new. its 30 years old. a true survivor!! Its amazing the car is this clean and pristine. Not another one like it. and won't be with all the documents this one has. This Spider is the ONLY ONE I've ever seen or heard of with a signed letter about this car from the original owner of 20 yrs with the original invoice. If your looking for that show car and/or a very rare collectible Spider. this is most definitely the car for you. This car is very dependable. no mechanical problems that I know of. everything works. runs and drives great! If interested. you can best contact me at my home phone. please call my number and don't text it. I can not receive text messages. Phone number is (937)-783-2729 ask for Nick.   Thanks and happy bidding :) Pictures under the BMV history listed below. Trouble seeing pictures?

  I will accept check. but car and title will not leave my home until check clears and I'm paid in full. this also goes for wire transfers as well. If check and/or wire transfer does not clear and/or full payment is not met I have the right to resale within 7 days of end of auction. All deposits are Non-refundable.  
**  UPDATE:  I just had the carpets professionally Shampooed and Conditioned on Aug. 8th. we like to have that done once a year to all of our vehicles. Alfa Spider was also professionally detailed at this time as well. We still are taking this car to car shows and it is being driven but only in local surrounding areas less then 45 minutes away at most.  We do not eat or drink in this car and we are non smokers :)

  Buyer question 8/18/16:   Has the head ever been removed?Answer: No. none of the engine parts have ever been removed except the water pump which was recently replaced. The engine has never been removed from car. all looks new under hood and engine is spotless and shines everywhere like in photos. Engine and all parts have been polished in its original place. You can eat off of it. its that clean :) Any more questions feel free to ask me by mail or phone. thanks - Nick
Buyer question 8/24/16:   Has the oil been changed recently?  What type of oil and filter is used?Answer:  It was changed when I bought the car in 2014 and I have changed the oil this spring. Oil used is Mobile 1 10w40 full synthetic with lucas synthetic oil stabilizer. Filter is Mobile 1. Engine oil psi is great! always has been even with previous owners. stays right around 57 mark always.  When oil was changed. no metal of any kind. no issues what so ever. Rear diff gear oil was changed recently. I used lucas gear oil 80w/90. Also Trany fluid was changed by second owner right before I bought the car. All fluids including brakes have been bled out and changed correctly.
