1978 ALFA ROMEO 2000 SPIDER VELOCE. BEAUTIFUL BLUE. 2 LITRE + 5 SPEED. 67,OOO MILES. £12,995.
This iconic piece of Italian motoring is in a really nice shade of Blue and has a black interior. Only 67,000 miles on the clock from new. The current owner has concentrated over the last 2 years on getting the mechanicals of the car just right and how it should be. The car was despatched to Alfa specialist Day & White at Brands Hatch, Kent where the car was expertly tuned. The carbs were replaced with new Weber DCOE's, electric 123 ignition fitted along with an engine service, plugs, leads etc. After a bill of £3000 the engine was tested on a dyno machine and was found to have as much power as when the car was new 40 years ago. 115BHP and 120 lb.ft torque. The engine and 5 speed gearbox work very well and propel the car along very nicely. It has also had in the last 2 years of ownership new tyres, brake discs/pads etc., exhaust, plus more. The car has also been fitted with a new soft top hood and a retro look stereo radio/CD and electric aerial. Invoices for over £4000 in the file. The car is now 40 years old and is road tax and MOT exempt. The last MOT with no advisories has just run out and although it does not require one a new MOT will be put on for the new owner. There is also an original sales brochure in the file. The bodywork is rust free and in good condition (although not concours) The interior is good but you may wish to splash out on some new rubber mats as the current fitted ones could do with replacing. With Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider Veloces like this one fetching up to £25k this one is priced to reflect the excellent mechanics and the need to improve the interior.
