Cosmetics include a very nice stage 1 re-spray in 505 red and original style door panels and seats complete the black interior. Very tidy inside and out – the interior includes updated carpets, soft-clean dash top, nice gauges, and clean clear glass. The Cromadora Daytona wheels, Pirelli tires, European headlight covers, black cloth top and black boot cover are all clean and in great condition. The panel fit is nice and the gaps are good. The glove box includes a re-printed 1750 owners manual. The Bumper rubber and metal look to be original showing some minor wear, but are certainly very presentable. All lenses are in good shape. Exterior lighting and dash lighting function properly – as does the engine bay light and trunk light. The trunk is clean and includes the original rubber mat, jack and spare tire/wheel, – it does not have any other tools. All the way around the car is very nice and must be seen to be appreciated.

Mechanically this 1971 1750 Spider is a very happy car. The engine sounds wonderful and runs very smooth, the car shifts properly and is very engaging to drive. The suspension feels tight and steering responsive – the car tracks straight and stops strong and smooth. The previous owner(s) converted the car to full European specification – including intake manifold, cams, Weber carburetors, and air box and preformed many mechanical upgrades. The engine was rebuilt with new pistons and liners, the crank was polished, the rods were checked, and valve job preformed. Underneath the Alfa shows no evidence of rust and I did not see any major collision damage. The passenger door does appear to have been replaced at some point. The clutch was renewed, flywheel resurfaced, and a new brake master cylinder added. The previous owner rebuilt the transmission and renewed the syncros. The car shifts properly and is buttery smooth. A new water pump was recently added, as was a new heater blower motor and heater fan switch. dom information . The heater now functions properly.

Previous owners are said to all be in California: San Francisco Bay Area, and Sacramento – now Southern California. Some additional History: An e-mail from Automobilismo Storico Alfa Romeo reveals chassis number AR 1485444 corresponds to an Alfa Romeo 1750 Spider Veloce USA (105.62), manufactured on 13th October 1970 and sold the 30th October 1970 to Alfa Romeo, Newark, USA. The body colour is red, with black skai interior.

Perhaps the very best part – the Alfa song. Mille Grazie! If you have never driven an early Spider, you will be very pleased with how nice this car feels, how entertaining it is to drive and how wonderful it sounds. This is a car you can be proud of… It can be enjoyed and driven regularly, and it does not break the bank. As quality sports cars go, this car is a tremendous value at $14,750.

As a small dealer, I only purchase cars I love and I buy the best I can find. I am a little bit of a fix – it – artist. I like to push the repair and restoration process to the next level. In the process I learn some history about the make and model, I read everything I can find – and of course I exercise the cars prior to sale. Someone has to do it!

Legal Discloser: This car is now 36 years old. It has been driven almost 90,000 miles. It is by no means perfect – very nice, but not perfect. It is a very clean car, it is well sorted and is a wonderful example you must see and drive to appreciate. While I have provided you with a detailed description of the car, I always encourage an on-site inspection – seeing the car with your own eyeballs and driving it with your own hands and feet. If this cannot happen, I will assist you and answer your questions as honestly as I can. My website is designed to aid and instill confidence in clients who do business with me. As always is the norm for 36 year old sports cars, this vehicle is sold “as is” and with “no warranty”. If sold to a California resident, I must collect the appropriate sales tax and fees. If sold out of the state of California, it must be shipped via a licensed carrier who will provide a Bill of Lading. Questions? Call Ken at 949-842-9198.
