Verde, Bianco, Rosso, e Argento: 1974 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce

Today’s next car isn’t something that’ll win some fancy prize at the next Amelia Island Concours D’Corpulence, or get you the front valet spot at some Michelin starred restaurant…but it could get you the front valet spot at your local Salsa Dancing spot (is dancing allowed during COVID19 crisis?) or spark a conversation with random folks in front of the gas pump.  You won’t need to spend thousands of your hard earned stimulus money on restoring or maintaining this car, but you should be able to simply drive and enjoy…provided you have decent skills with a wrench, multi-meter, and the internet. Find this 1974 Alfa Romeo Spider offered for $4850 in Decatur, GA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

1974 Alfa Romeo Spider

Silver with black top and interior. Strong running motor, good transmission. Recent Rear Suspension Bushings, and Exhaust. Recent rebuild of brake calipers and new master cylinder.

Car has starter relay and new ignition switch. Starts on the first try, every time

Good tires. Except spare, which will need a good tire.

New radiator and hoses

The interior mats and upholstery are in good shape.

Silver paint (original color) still shines nicely, but the car does have some bumps and bruises.

Last year for stainless steel bumpers.

Still has Spica fuel injection system, which works well.

Car can be a bit hesitant coming off of idle when it’s cold. But once warm runs beautifully

I do not need help selling the car. I am not able to take anything in trade
