This has been owned by the former owner, David Hiatt since at least least 1982. It comes with a nice file history with invoices dating back to 1982. The Alfa has been regularly upgraded and serviced.
Upgrades include the European set-up of the Italian Dellorto dual carbs replacing the finicky fuel injection. In addition, it had installed the Performance Camshafts from International Auto Parts in March 2010. We also love the plexiglass headlight covers that the owner imported from Germany in 2005.
In April 2004 the Alfa had accumulated 22,941 miles. A major service was performed by Veloce Motors in Portland, OR including rebuilding the Dellorto carbs. By July 2007 the Alfa had 27,000 miles. By March of 2010 the Alfa had 27,385 miles and a major service was performed, including brakes, head rebuild, new performance cam installed, radiator serviced, differential leaks sealed, carbs rebuilt, etc. All old registration documents, receipts and invoices will be included with the sale.
New Sumitomo radials were installed in late 2007 and the tires have nearly no wear to them (less than 1,000 miles). The Alfa comes with the highly desirable Panasport wheels.
The Alfa comes with a later model factory hardtop and a new roll bar that has not been installed. Look at the photos in the gallery for photos of the hardtop and roll bar.
The Alfa is a very nice daily driver. It is a great candidate for Alfa Club tours and rallies. The paint is an older repaint in the original Alfa Rosso red. It has a variety of small imperfections that at five feet are not noticeable but on closer inspection are there. The interior is in nice condition and the dash pad has a very very small crack, about an inch in length (this is a very good sign as most all have large cracks). The tachometer is presently not functioning. The speedometer had been rebuilt and works well as do the other gauges.
The convertible correct canvas top is nearly no and shows no wear.
This is a nice opportunity to acquire a very solid reportedly low mileage Alfa spider at an affordable price. For more details or to schedule an inspection please call Harry at 951.901.5088 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
