Seller's Description & Comments

1979 Alfa Romeo Spider VeloceIt is always difficult to price a special car like this-a 1979 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce. I'm looking at comparables from 2014 with nothing sold since 2018!. Youd think with Covid 19 the price of these collectible classics would be plummeting! But that is not the case and as one of my collector commented This is a buyers market. But finding a rare car in this condition means the sellers have the upper hand.As an advisor to my sellers, I state (be ever so emotional) that this car will never be built again. It can be modified to an electric maybe. But it will never be quite like this. I get so excited when a young person (in my case anyone under 40) gets excited about a car as complicatedly simple as this.Because of my lack of funds in college, Italian cars were unthinkable. See advice below for Italian car owners. But it doesn't mean that I was always turning my head when something red and exotic flashed by. My generation will be among the last to have grown- up with the thrill, not just of driving free from adult repression and cell phone ringing, but just that pure sense of joy. That special joy that happens when you are out on the open road with a very cool car with the top down and the wind in your hair. It didn't matter that it was only 35 degrees out or snow was coming down. It was the challenge! Oh yestry driving north Philly without a clutch or no wipers in a monsoon on Route 80 in NJ. This generation will never know what it is like! Rescue for them is only a cell phone button away. This 2 door- 2 seater convertible does not appear to have the problematic rust see ugly photos. The engine was a 4-cyl. 1962cc/111hp Spica Mechanical Fuel Injection. the standard Spider Veloce model, with a 2.0L (1,962 cc) DOHC 2 valves ( VVT) per cylinder 4 -cylinder engine made of Aluminum Alloy. This red with black interior has 74,058 miles on the odometer with a 4 speed manual transmission with the ubiquitous grind in each gear. The optional hardtop is in excellent condition. This car needs a tuneup and minor repairs see LAW #2 below. But most of all this car needs someone to love the challenge of bringing it back to its original course.History of the 1970-1982 Alfa Romeo Spider The 1950s vintage Alfa Romeo Giulietta and Giulia series of coupes and convertibles seemed like they could conceivably go on forever. Even as late as 1965, Road & Track was still singing the praises of the 1600cc Giulia Spider Veloce. Nevertheless, for the 1966 model year, Alfa began selling its replacement, named the Duetto, via a contest that Alfa ran with the Italian public. It was the last project in which Batista Pininfarina was personally involved. And while widely viewed as classic design today, it was met with some controversy when new. Power was initially from the familiar Alfa 1600cc twin-cam engine that powered the last Giulias. Emission laws affected Alfa particularly hard and 1968 was a lost year in the U.S. The car returned for 1969 with a 1750cc engine and SPICA mechanical fuel injection. 1970 was another lost year and 1971 saw the car return with its lovely boat tail chopped off. The so-called Kamm-tail spider continued on basically unchanged (save for bigger bumpers and a 250cc boost in displacement) until 1982 when electronic injection was introduced and in 1983 styling was freshened slightly. Interior changes were about it until 1991 when the final (and quite successful) cleanup of the design took place prior to its discontinuation in 1994. All Spiders are brisk performers with sub-10 second 0-60 times and stellar convertible tops. Parts are readily available and while they are more complex and dont tolerate fools with tools as readily as an MGB, they are more rewarding to drive. Hagerty The Alfa Romeo Badge has some conflicting discussion about its origins. Look closely, you will see a serpent eating a man? A child? The most interesting legend states that in Lake Gerundo, very near Milan, an enormous snake live
