1991 Alfa Romeo Spider

The last version of the classic Alfa Spider. It's a great rust-free Colorado car that has higher miles and isn't perfect, but the price is on the lower end of the scale – so you can buy it, and just enjoy it, or upgrade as you go and the values are poised to go up as well, so it could be a good investment. 

It is supposed to have an Alfa reman engine, but PO can't find paperwork, so take that for what it's worth. The bushings could use replacement, but it's not as bad as most Spiders I drive. 2nd gear will crunch if you speed shift when cold, but it's fine if you go slow and when warmed up. There is some clear coat peeling and dings in the paint, but not bad. 

No rust – for an Alfa that's big, and worth as much as the purchase price in repairs if you buy a rusty one. It has a new canvas top – again, worth a few thousand dollars at least if you price one out with installation. 

It needs some minor TLC, but is a great driving car you can do a rolling restoration to if you want. 

 

$4500

I assume this is yours.  That the most rust-free Alfa I’ve ever seen and the mileage is HUUUUGGGGGEEE for one.  If I had not bought the TR3 last year this would be tempting.  GLWS.

That looks just like how I bought my 63 Alfa spider 30 years ago.  Tempted but I have too many cars already

Thanks - I can't quite understand why it hasn't sold quickly because of the price and the rust-free body.  

 

I got tired of tire kickers and threw it up on ebay for $4000 opening bid, no reserve.

OK, that was the wrong category - here it is relisted.

3 and a half days left - no bids yet!  Somebody might get it for $4000

I don't want a convertible, and I don't have space or money for another car, but damned if that isn't tempting. I love the color combo, and rust-free and Alfa don't usually go together. It won't be to me unless I hit the Powerball in the next 72 hours, but GLWS.

OK, after 3 buyers have been unable to come up with funds, trying this again on ebay, with a "Price or best offer approach"
