1985 Alfa Romeo Spider convertible, soft top

I purchased this car from the first owner, a lady who kept good records, in June of 2016. I have a complete history and receipts since the day she drove it out of the show room. It had been used regularly until 2011 - since then only sporadically. The odometer was busted, the lady estimated mileage at 140,000. First thing I did was bring it to Vintage Car Solutions in Houston - a very reputable garage specializing in Alfa Romeo and Ferrari. They replaced everything that could have been affected by age - hoses, belts, etc. I have invested over $10,000 since purchase, including new master cylinder, clutch overhaul, cam timing & chain tension, valve lash, finding true top-dead-center of motor and adjusted crankshaft pointer, and timing of both cams to factory timing marks done, etc. new upholstery (leather seats), all done by Vintage Car Solutions (except for the upholstery). There are a couple minor dents (photo shows largest at about 3" diameter). The engine burns a little oil, not too bad. Excellent tires (Michelins). The previous owner replaced the top and installed a new audio system recently. Air conditioning doesn't work, appears to have a small leak. This is a great car and fun to drive. I am selling because I'm moving back to Europe. My phone number is 520 234 0296 (you may have to leave a message).
