1971 Alfa Romeo Spider

This is simply a beautiful example of an S2 spider that needs nothing to be enjoyed. Car looks sounds and performs exactly as it was meant to everything works as it should. The car drives great; goes stops turns shifts and makes all the right sounds. The body is super straight with no dings scratches or chips (the engine bay and trunk have not been painted). Body gaps are all great the gas filler door looks like it's about an 1/8" shy of closing because the new weatherstrip is preventing it from shutting all the way. The interior is amazing all lights gauges switches buttons horn etc. work. (However turn signal lever seems to be workingintermittently) Seats dash console rubber mats are in excellent condition no tears holes etc. The door panels are excellent originals (thefaux chrome strips are showing some wear as seen in pictures) All restoration was done with originality in mind. California Bay area car since 1972. Two inherent weaknesses of these cars were the weak 2nd gearsynchros and cracking dashboards (this has arebuilt transmission with newsynchros so shifts perfectly in every way. Andincredibly the dash is original and in flawless condition) Top is in perfect condition with no tears holes etc fit is perfect and back window is 100% clear with no scratches additionally it goes up and down and the latching mechanism is all there and works as it was designed. A new black vinyl top boot comes with the car as well as an indoor fitted car cover). I have done my best to describe this car please ask questions if there is a photo of something youdon't see I'll do my best to get it. I am near some well-respected Alfa shops should you want to have the car checked out.
