BaT Exclusive: 1985 Alfa Romeo Spider

This 1985 Alfa Romeo Spider wears all original Rosso #514 paint and has 62,300 original miles. The seller bought it as part of a lot along with four vintage motorcycles, and believes he is the third owner. The car is clean but not perfect, and is a solid and honest example of an unmolested 80#8242;s era Alfa.

It is available in Chicago, Illinois for $6000 OBO. Contact us at if you are interested.

There is not one patch panel anywhere on the car. There is no checking or cracking evident in the finish. The glass and seals are in excellent condition. The windshield had a small chip when purchased, and has since been replaced with a brand new windshield.

The 4-cylinder 2-liter powerplant runs and accelerates smoothly and very quickly and the 5-speed transmission shifts as it should. The car drives around town and on the open road with no squeaks, creaks, or rattles. It has had all of the necessary service recently performed including oil-change, tune up, installation of new battery, and gearbox and differential service.

A new clutch was also installed. The car needs absolutely nothing to drive, show, and enjoy. All of the mechanical aspects of the car work as they should. The tires are brand new Pirelli Cinturato and are the correct and original style and size. The wheels are the original Alfa steel wheels with the trim rings, and are in good condition, with expected wear evident.

All of the center caps are original and in good condition.

The interior is trimmed in the correct black vinyl interior. The seating areas are in good condition except for two small tears on the driver’s seat. The door panels, dashboard, and console are in very nice original condition as is the carpet.

All of the accessories, including the climate control are in working order. The AM/FM radio currently installed works, although it is not original equipment to the car.

All of the windows as well as the door locks and trunk release work. The trunk is in very nice condition, and the trunk carpeting is also in very nice original condition with no rips, tears, or missing pieces. The original spare tire and wheel are also in good condition, as is the plastic cover for the battery.

There is a custom fitted front end bra that is included with the sale of the car, as well as a matching fender cover for working in the engine compartment.

The convertible top on the car is original. While it is in presentable condition, fits very well, works perfectly, and has very nice rear window plastic, there are two small tears in the roof shown in the photos. The seller has decided that it is too preserved to require replacement.

The new owner can choose whether to keep or replace it. The original boot is in very nice condition and also comes with the car.

The underside of the car is commensurate with a well cared for car. It is rust-free and very well preserved, with no evidence of any floor rot. The seller is happy to provide any specific photos needed, and the car can be made available for pre-purchase inspections.
