Oyster Cars are delighted to offer this rare and stunning Alfa Spider Veloce Series 2 1750 Kamm tail finished in white with red leather. This is an original Right Hand Drive car of which we believe only around 160 were made. The details of the car match the chassis number as sourced by the Alfa Romeo archive in Turin.

 

There are simply masses of invoices for the car’s history which are stored in three folders. A previous owner helpfully compiled a chronological summary of the car’s history which includes a full body and engine rebuild in 1986, 1987 and into 1988, full cavity wax protection in 2000, an engine rebuild in 2002, further bodywork and wax protection in 2004 and 2008, a major brake and suspension overhaul in 2009, upgraded gear differentials in 2013, reconditioned gearbox and clutch in 2014 and reconditioned brakes in 2016. There has been lots of other work and servicing in between and any perspective buyer is welcomed to view all the paperwork themselves. Judging the car on the condition it is today, the underside has been inspected on our four post ramp and appears in good solid condition. Any perspective buyer is welcomed to view the car on the ramp too. The car drives beautifully. The engine pulls well with no smoke or any uncharacteristic noises and idles nicely. There also appears to be no oil leaks. The brakes are good and straight, the clutch is light with no slippage, there are no unusual noises when driving and the car handles well both around town and on a faster A road.

 

The interior is in lovely condition and the seats have been freshly recovered and look like new. Everything works as it should and there is even a lovely period radio fitted. The hood is like new and fits nice and tightly and there is a very nice tonneau cover for when it is down. The bodywork is very respectable all round but there are some minor marks and for top show condition the new owner may wish to have the paintwork stripped and repainted. This is something we can assist with if required. 

 

The car comes with original handbook and very rare service book, a clear Motorcheck HPi report, V5 present, a 75 point pre delivery inspection, full 2015 Consumer Rights protection. Inspection on one of our four post ramps is welcomed. A definite current classic that is a practical, fun and easy car to drive. Please phone Andy if you have any further questions or wish to arrange a viewing.
