The Alfa Romeo Spider was manufactured from 1966 to 1993 and is widely regarded as a design classic, remaining in production for almost three decades with only minor aesthetic and mechanical changes. The three first series were assembled by Pininfarina in Grugliasco and the fourth series in San Giorgio Canavese; this was the last rear wheel drive Alfa Romeo. With this fourth series of production came mechanical and cosmetic changes; mechanically from the introduction of the Bosch Motronic electronic fuel injection with an electric fan and cosmetically, losing its front under-bumper spoiler and the rear boot spoiler picking up 164-style rear lights stretching across the width of the car as well as colour co-ordinated plastic bumpers.
Originally registered overseas, this Alfa Romeo Spider was bought back to the UK in July 1999. The vendor has described the car as "interesting and fun" to drive but has also stated the car could do with a little time and investment spent on her. Supplied with a V5 registration document and a full years MoT test certificate, these extremely pretty roadsters are just as much the design classic as the previous 'Graduate' examples and certainly worth the time and effort to restore.
