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 having only minor aesthetic and mechanical changes. The first three series were assembled by Pininfarina in Grugliasco and the fourth series in San Giorgio Canavese; this was the last rear wheel drive Alfa Romeo. The Spider underwent a major styling revamp in 1983 which saw the introduction of black rubber front and rear bumpers. The front bumper incorporated the grille and a small soft rubber spoiler was added to the boot lid. Various other minor mechanical and aesthetic modifications were also made and the 1600 car dropped the 'Junior' name.
This righthand drive Alfa Romeo was originally registered on 4th April 1984 and has had five former keepers. The odometer reading is 50,100 kilometres and is thought to be correct. Benefitting from recent works including a new mohair hood, tyres, battery and exhaust; all the body panels appear to be original and the red paintwork is in very good order as is the beige leather trim. The 1972cc engine runs well and the car is described as driving with no known faults. Supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate valid until 20th September 2016 and some service history, this Alfa Romeo Spider represents a very attractive purchase ready for the summer's weekend motoring.
