If you are looking for an enjoyable classic convertible – the Alfa Romeo Spider is a great choice. There is a reason they lasted from 1966 to 1995 with minimal changes. The aluminum 2.0 liter dual overhead camshaft engine is the direct descendant of the one designed in the 1950s – again, a great design that has stood the test of time. Four wheel disc brakes. This Spider is the culmination of those years of development, and judged by many to be a far superior car to many of the British convertibles of the period. This is what I would call a great driver-level car. It isn't a concours show winner, but it is a really solid value needing a little TLC. The body is in very good condition, with absolutely no rust anywhere. The paint isn't perfect – there are a few chips and tiny dings, and the trunk paint doesn't perfectly match, but overall, it looks great, and most people would never notice the blemishes. The top is in good condition and works great. Comes with car cover. It does need rear suspension castor bushings which is really common for these and not an expensive repair. The interior shows a little wear but not bad. Basically, it would impress most casual observers and be super enjoyable to drive through the summer with the top down. It has been serviced locally since 2006, service records are included. The same shop would be available for future work if buyer is local. You might be able to find another Spider for this price – but I don't think you will find another one as nice as this. This car is ready to be enjoyed and cared for by a new owner. Don't miss this one – if you've been looking for a super clean spider, you'll regret it if you miss it.

Proper red color, looks good.  Grey seats are a bit of a clash, would've thought they'd be black or tan?

I agree they look a little out of place, but they do match the door panel inserts, so I'll chalk it up to 80s Italian styling?

I think different color mats would help tone down the color disparity.
