Description

Cosmetically this is a nice car with good race car cosmetics, an excellent racing stance, and a purposeful presence. The paint is appropriate for racecar use with good gloss overall but showing evidence of track use. Various trim and bright work on the car is good overall with the grille and side vent trim handsomely accenting the front of the car. The Panasport wheels are in very good condition with nice finish overall and no major chips or marks on the rims. The bumpers have been removed and the bodywork has been finished to feature a clean look, further enhanced by the Italian flag colored stripes running the top length of the entire car. A roll bar is installed for added safety, adorned with a few stickers boasting of the premier west coast historic races where this car has competed.

The interior is a nice combination of original features and racing components. The original dashboard is in place with all three instruments centrally located behind a stock steering wheel. The finishes in the interior include red seating and door panels against the gloss black body color. Here again the contrasting fire extinguisher, competition seat belts, additional instrumentation, and safety cut-off switch all add to the purposeful agenda of this race-ready Alfa Spider Veloce. Under the hood, Alfa Romeo aluminum castings, Weber carburetors, and internal upgrades come together in a total performance package, which is presented in a clean and tidy engine compartment. The undercarriage is solid, showing no evidence of significant damage. The floor pans have been selectively replaced.

The car is a full-tilt racecar, and that is evident in the driving experience it supplies. The engine starts easily, revving up to a raspy and crisp bark when blipping the throttle. All eyes on the instruments indicate everything is ready to go and the clutch responds promptly. Shifting is smooth and direct as power comes on and the twin cam delivers that glorious Italian symphony as you launch to speed. Cornering is sharp, having been dialed in with suspension upgrades, slightly lowered stance, and eager Hoosier tires. Front disc brakes bring the car down smoothly without drift or significant dive, making cornering and acceleration delightfully rapid exchanges in and out of the apex.

It is unlikely that the build of this example could duplicated for the asking price. The car comes with original engine in complete long block form (minus carburetors and distributor), the original fuel tank, a wiper motor, a spare set of wheels, and a few suspension parts, but would not be easily converted back to street use configuration.
