Atsa nice: ’74 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce 2000
We are excited to find a later model Spider that retained the older style shiny bumpers. Later cars were burdened with the less attractive although more effective, black rubber units. The car is still a great car but they just don’t look as nice. The seller lavished a lot of love on this Spider. He tells us in the listing that he started off with a really nice car and made it much better. Bravo. The paint looks great and is said to be in excellent shape. Same goes for the interior that sports a modern radio that did not require cutting the dash. But we were impressed with the details like the lightened gears in the transmission rebuild. That just makes the rebuild last longer and shift even nicer. The SPICA injection system is intact and we like that as we have said in other listing. We even like the selection of the 5-star Cromodoras in place of the fussy Turbinas that come along with it. We’ll go out on a limb here by saying that this Alfa is turnkey. If the work was completed as stated, there doesn’t appear to be much else to do. Although this is a small chrome bumper car, the valuation isn’t as high as the earliest Duetto Spiders like the car we featured last week. Therefore an asking price of $23,000 isn’t outrageous and it does say “or best offer.” Click here to make that offer.
