Alfa Romeo Spider Graduate S3
Oyster Cars are delighted to be able to offer this beautiful Alfa Spider Series 3 Graduate. This example was imported into the UK from the sunshine belt of America approximately 3 years ago and first registered in Britain in February 2021. In order to gain its new V5, a certificate of origin from Alfa Romeo in Milan was issued authenticating its production history. Having come from a dry state in the US and subsequently dry stored here in the UK, there is no corrosion on the car and any potential buyer is welcomed to inspect the vehicle underneath on one of our four post ramps. The car is finished in Alfa Rosso Red with chrome trim and wing mirrors and the bodywork is in very good all round condition. The bodywork itself is set off by the period correct 5 spoke Compodoro wheels which themselves are in excellent condition and fitted with nearly new Kumho tyres all round.
The engine bay looks very smart with its painted rocker covers and the engine itself runs very smoothly with no noises or oil leaks. When being prepared for UK registration the car was fitted with four new brake calipers, new front hoses and the gearbox was reconditioned by Auto Alfa to resolve the common 2nd gear synchromesh and a new clutch fitted.
Inside the car, the seats have been recently re-upholstered and the interior features new professionally shaped mats, a Blaupunkt DAB radio and the traditional Moto Lita three spoke wooden steering wheel. There are receipts for the work and new parts supplied in the UK and the car comes with original leather service book and handbook which is a lovely addition. Classic Car magazine recently ran an article on how the price of Series 3 Spiders are now starting to climb following that of the Series 1 and Series 2 cars as they become ever more valuable. The car will be sold with a new full year’s MOT. There can not be too many examples with such original bodywork so if you wish to arrange a viewing or have any further questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
