1974 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce
New Top. Superb Mechanicals. Professional Alfa Mechanic Owned. Stainless Bumpers.
Italian manufacturer Alfa Romeo began production of the iconic roadster “Spider” series in 1966. This two-door design classic was remained in production for nearly three decades, with little aesthetic and mechanical changes. The first three Spider series were assembled by Pininfarina in Grugliasco, and the fourth series in San Giorgio Canavese. During the many decades of production, Alfa Romeo also created a 2.3 liter single-seater racing version of the Spider (the Alfa Romeo 8C) which was driven to victory at the Targa Florio race in Sicily in 1931 and 1932. The last Spider was produced in April 1993.
In 1970 Alfa Romeo released the Series 2 Spider, which was produced until 1983. The Series 2 featured the first significant changes aesthetically as well as mechanically. During the first year of production for the Series 2 Spider, Alfa Romeo introduced a new and more conventional cut-off tail called the “Kamm Tail”. Numerous other small changes included a slightly different grille, new door handles, top-hinged pedals and an improved interior trim. Under the hood, the Series 2 Spider Veloce got a new and improved 1962 cc 132 HP engine, and consequently the name was changed from 1750 Spider Veloce to 2000 Spider Veloce.
Our 1974 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce is a restored and lovingly maintained survivor. The car runs well with its original engine, and shows a beautiful, and original, ivory exterior. Mechanically, this Spider Veloce has a strong running, non-smoking engine that shifts with ease. The factory original tonneau cover, jack and tool roll are included with the car. Recent maintenance of the vehicle includes a new top, seat covers, exterior side mirrors, console shift boot and after-market Alfa Romeo floor carpets. Other updates are new inner & outer shift boots, U-joints, water pump, wiper blades and trailing arm bushing. The water pump and starter were also recently replaced, and the Spider boasts a fresh alignment and front and rear brake pads.
The previous owner was a factory trained Alfa mechanic. There is some floor rust as shown in the photographs. Trunk/spare area has minor pinholes. Overall, very clean stainless bumpers.
