1975 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce 2000 S2
This 1975 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce is an Australian delivered example of the desirable second evolution of Alfa’s handsome Italian sports car. It is powered by a 2.0-litre twin-cam four-cylinder engine which outputs 98kW to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission. Of the four engines fitted to the Alfa Romeo Spider, the 2000cc engine in this car was the largest and most powerful. This example has 10,414 miles showing on the odometer.
The Pininfarina-designed Alfa Romeo Spider was first unveiled at the Geneva motor show in March 1966 and remained in production through four separate decades. The Series 2 cars (the car listed for sale) were the first major revision of the Spider since its debut and added a distinctive Kammback tail which aided aerodynamics and practicality. It also added a 2+2 seating layout and a larger 2.0-litre engine that matched the peppy driving characteristics of the sporty chassis. Nowadays, Series 2 cars in particular are sought after for their character, relatively simple mechanics and style, with values for excellent condition examples rising steadily.
This 2+2 seat Spider is in resplendent condition after being restored and features a classic white over black colour combination. The current owner went over the car with a fine-tooth comb, replacing new floor panels, new front end and side seals during a bare-metal restoration. All chrome detailing was redone, while important facets were kept in place such as original Jaeger gauges. Extensive restorative work was completed to the original engine by the previous owner, though hoses, radiator, exhaust, brakes and drums were all replaced with new items relatively recently.
Acquired from its second owner in 2013 (who owned the car for 25 years following its purchase from original owner), this Alfa Romeo Spider has been lovingly restored over several years to its current condition. It was completed in 2019, though its current owner hasn’t had the time to enjoy it. The current owner has only traveled a few thousand miles in the car but it is believed that the odometer has been around once.
The white exterior paint is in excellent condition after being repainted, and no chips, marks or scratches show on the body. Its cloth black roof is still tight and functional and all chrome accenting shines brightly in the light. There is some minor rust around the joints of the convertible mechanism, though it’s merely superficial and does not affect the action. The car sits on a set of set of pristine 14-inch Alfa Romeo Teledial-style wheels wrapped in a set of new Michelin tyres.
Interior trimmings and parts were largely untouched through the restoration, though the dash was replaced using original gauges. The black leather seats are in good condition, as are the carpets in the boot, and floor mats. The woodgrain steering wheel is polished and features subtle patina. There is a minor gouge in the back of the passenger seat.
Recent mechanical work has been completed by Northern Alfa. Owner’s manuals will be supplied with the sale as well as a spare wheel which sits underneath the boot floor.
