Harry's Thoughts

THE ESSENTIALS

This is a 45,000 mile, two owner original Quadrifoglio spider.  These top-of-the-line spiders are increasingly hard to find in original condition.  This Spider has a two owner documented history from new.  It is nearly rust and appears to be accident free- We bought this car sight unseen and it was grossly misrepresented.  We will be very thorough in our description so that the person buying this knows the true strengths and weaknesses of this car.

We love the black Quadrifoglio’s with the gray leather and contrasting red carpeting.  The overall condition of the car is good but it needs TLC.

We had the car serviced by the Alfa-only engineers at Auto International here in Phoenix.  They checked the compression and serviced the fuel injection.  The engine is excellent and strong with excellent compression.  The car runs and drives wonderfully in all respects.  Just as you would expect with a 45k mile car.

Read about the documented history of the car below and please carefully inspect the 100 photos in the gallery.   This Quad comes complete with the original factory hardtop, original keys, owners manual, warranty book,  and a pile of service and registration receipts.

It is rare to see all original and unmolested Alfa spiders.  This example is in very good condition.  It wears all its original black paint  from the factory.  Although we were assured the car had never had any paintwork done, it does appear that there was cheap paintwork performed years ago.  This car will need to be painted.    There are small dents, scratches and chips on most all panels but it would require minimal prep work for a proper repaint.    It also has its original matching Quadrifoglio Pininfarina Hardtop, a special design for this top-of-the-line model that had a $22,500 MSRP!!

The sporty interior is all original and looks very nice.  The original gray leather seats are in decent condition and may be used as is for many years.  The passenger seat is a little for dry and has a seam split.  Overall the interior is good.   The original carpeting is in very nice condition both in the passenger area, the storage area behind the seats and in the trunk.  We love the bright red carpeting!  It looks stunning in the otherwise conservative black and gray color scheme.  The dash pad has one small crack, a common problem for abused or neglected Alfas.  The leather wrapped steering wheel is in very nice condition.

The soft top is likely the original from new.  It is the correct black canvas top and is in good condition.  The rear window plastic is in good condition and has slightly yellowed with no cracks.  It will likely require a few minutes to stretch closed if used!

The clock, stereo, horn, blinkers and emergency lights are not presently functioning.  Nor are the heater fans.  The air conditioning is not blowing cold but all else seems to work.  The full compliment of instruments and gauges all work with the speedo being stuck.  Importantly, the odometer works fine.  The original Alfa stereo and cassette player is not powered up and we believe the power antenna also is non-operational.  The radials are just a few years old and in like-new condition.  The larger but lighter weight 15 inch Quadrifoglio wheels are unique for this model and are in good condition.

The brakes and handling of the car are fine.  There are no squeaks and rattles.  It is very tight and supple.

History of this Alfa Spider-

This Quad was bought new on June 2nd, 1987 by Joyce Prater from Graffeo’s Imported Cars from Birmingham, Alabama.  By September 24th, 1990 the Quad was sold to David Jones from Tuscaloosa, Alabama.  By that time the Alfa had accumulated a mere 14,100 miles.  David enjoyed the Quad for the next 24 years.

We have priced this Quad very well.  The following is the NADA Guide value specifically for the 1987 Quadrifoglio spiders (with A/C and the hardtop):

Interesting Fact: The original Alfa Romeo Spider is a two-seater sports car that was comprised of two series: the 105 and 115. This vehicle was the successor to the Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider and was produced from 1966 to 1994.   At the 36th Geneva Motor Show, the Spider was released with an inline four-cylinder engine that produced 108 horsepower. Five-speed and three-speed transmissions were attached over the years which gave the vehicle a high variability depending on the model chosen. In 1993, production on the original Spider ended and a new variant was released a year later.   This newer model had a much shorter production period that only spanned about 10 years. During that time, only 39,000 Spiders were built, but this car was still a popular one among the car collectors’ community and is an esteemed choice for any sports car lover!
