1989 Alfa Romeo Spider Graduate

I have owned this vehicle with my dad for almost 15 years, we are the 2nd owners of the car. I new the original owner and he took care of the car prior to us purchasing it from him. The car is not perfect by any means, has some rust on and underneath it since it was from up north originally. This car has lots of new parts and runs good, starts up and shifts good. Car has been repainted on about 60% of it, some rust has been repaired, and the body overall looks good. The clutch was just installed last week- it went out due to a stuck throw-out bearing. Car has an aftermarket K&N filter, also have the original air box. This car gets tons of looks everywhere you drive it, I mainly cruise the beaches on weekends and going out in evenings. This car has probably only had 200 miles put on it in the past year. All the miles I have put on it has been around town, under 50mph, just short trips. I have probably invested over $8000 into new parts/labor maintaining this car over the 15 years I have owned it. I feel this car could be a great and happy asset to someone who can enjoy more than I can.
The Good;
  • New convertible top (1 yr old)
  • New clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing (less than 10 miles on it)
  • New tires(less than 300 miles on them)
  • New master clutch cylinder (1 month old)
  • Clutch slave cylinder
  • New Motor mounts
  • New oil pan engine guard
  • Newer brake calipers, brake pads, shoes, drums (done about 3000 miles ago)
  • New carrier bearings, u-joints
  • Re-coiled radiator
  • New water pump
  • Exhaust header
  • New Air induction hose
  • Battery
  • Both fuel pumps (Tank and under the car pumps)
  • Pioneer Blue Tooth radio with speakers
  • Oil pressure sensor
  • Brake master cylinder
  • Radiator cap, plugs, wires
  • Leather seats are in good shape
  • Doors open and close good
  • There's probably a lot more I did not list for new parts

The Bad;
  • Has some surface rust under the car
  • Passenger side mirror is connected with a hose clamp keeping it in place
  • Air Conditioning - not sure if it works, no belt on hit, never tried it
  • Small leak at differential to drive shaft, needs a new seal, only leaks a drop or so.
  • Tires need balanced, vibrates over 55mph
  • Dashboard has cracks
  • Exhaust - small leaks
  • No hubcaps, car originally had hubcaps, they all flew off, purchased late Alfa center caps and painted the wheels black
  • Front drivers seat doesn't adjust forward to backwards
  • Paint nicks, a few scratches
  • Odometer/ Speedometer doesn't function completely correct. The speedometer hits only about 30mph and doesn't truly reflect actual speed. The odometer is not completely accurate either, the car probably has a 1000 more miles on it than it states. The trip meter works correctly.

Overall;This car runs and drives good, has always started up never burned oil, and I do not believe it leaks any oil either. The front suspension is good and tight, the brakes work great, the car looks good for its age. The car has been stored indoors for the 15yrs since we've owned it. The lights, windshield wipers, windows crank up, like they should.
Also included with the car:
  • Alfa OEM car cover
  • Car top Boot cover
  • Original owners manual(aged), tool kit, 2-original keys, tool kit box (all tools and never used), original air box, fuel pressure regulator (extra), 2 extra center caps,
