We are delighted to offer a recently restored Series 3 Alfa Romeo Spider in its stunning original colour of Blu medio metallizzato.
The Certificate of Origin we have with the car confirms it was produced in March 1989 and delivered in April to Mönchengladbach in Germany. From there is travelled to the UK and records show it was there in 1994. We can assume it was converted to RHD during its time in the UK where conversions were common and done well by authorised companies such as Bell and Colvill. All Series 3 and 4 cars left the factory as LHD cars however they were sought after in the UK and conversions were quite common until production ceased in 1994.
The car has spent most of its life in Australia and the import plate shows it arrived in 1995. It shows no signs of any corrosion and was recently subject to fresh coat of paint. During preparation no signs of corrosion were evident anywhere and the original colour is spectacular.
Over the last 2 years the owner has invested in excess of $30,000 with the car benefitting from new old stock Dell Orto carburettors, new disc brakes and callipers, new Eibach springs and shock absorbers, electric fuel pump, 1-2-3 ignition, hoses, bushes and so on. A thick folder of invoices accompanies the car.
The interior is a lovely place to be and the period Momo Prototipo steering wheel greets you as you get in. The instruments are clear and present as new. The odometer is reading 110,000mns and the general condition of the car suggests this is original. The dash is without any cracks at all.
The seats have been recovered at some point in a blue velour, as have the door cards. Whilst not original they are extremely well done and suit the car well. In the hot Australian climate, they are certainly more useable than the original black vinyl. They are comfortable and have no marks, rips or tears.
The correct type of mohair hood is fitted and is in perfect condition.
The car wears period correct Alfa Romeo alloy wheels which have been refurbished and present as new. They complete the car and look superb.
Start the engine and you immediately know you are in an Alfa Romeo. The 2000cc engine fires up with that familiar growl and then you are away. Out on the open road this car drives incredibly well and the gearbox is a delight to use without any issues on any of the synchros. The steering is very precise and accurate as you would expect given the work invested. The original fuel injection was replaced by dual Dell Orto carburettors and this has translated to an incredibly responsive and usable power delivery. Of note is the car still retains its correct and matching numbers engine.
Overall, this is an example of a later Spider in excellent condition without any signs of historic corrosion and suggests it has led a pampered life. There is a lot to like about this car, particularly given the asking price. It is a superb driving car in a stunning original colour combination.
A wonderful opportunity to own an Italian convertible with all the work done.
