1988 Alfa Romeo Spider

1988 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce. I am the 4th owner of this California car that came to Colorado in 2005. It hasn`t seen inclement weather since, so the car has no corrosion/rust issues, since it spent most of its life in the LA, California area. I have extensive records dating back to the 2nd owner in 1998. It also has an extensive recent repair list including new Koni shocks all around, a tranny rebuild with new OEM synchros, bearings and seals & a complete drive shaft rebuild with new flex disks and center support two years ago. The tranny now shifts as new with no typical Alfa 2nd gear grind. Red Line gear oil was used in the transmission and rear differential after a pinion seal replacement was performed. The front suspension has also been rebuilt with new tie rod ends and center link replacement, and an alignment was performed. The rear has received new limit straps and a wheel bearing replacement. The exterior had a complete, high quality, repaint 4 years ago, along with replaced carpeting, door panels and new, Alfa Romeo script embroidered leather seats & new leather shifter and e-brake boots. It has recent new Alfa Romeo logo floor mats. The top has been replaced about 10 years ago. The engine cylinder head has been rebuilt in the past, with the addition of Euro cams, according to the PO and the car`s repair records. It also has received a newly powder coated valve cover. The air box has been replaced by an aftermarket, performance cone version, air filter. Additionally, the engine has had recent plugs, wires, cap & rotor along with an oil and filter change. Additionally, it has a new catalytic converter, along with steel headers, a Magnaflow center muffler and a Centerline stinger rear exhaust section. The odometer currently reads 88,898, but the instrument package has been replaced because of a tach failure since I bought the car and I believe the real mileage to be around 130,000. The car currently has BWA aftermarket wheels with Dunlop A2 tires with approximately 80% tread life left.The original wheels are available for the car, as well. It has an aftermarket Alpine CD sound system head unit, as well as replacement speakers. The dash is cracked by the defroster vents, as are most of these cars.The AC system currently does not work and the compressor has been removed by the previous owner. There are lots of other repairs and improvements that I am sure that I am forgetting, like that both taillights have seen replacements and other similar smaller details, so please ask any questions that you might have.This car was on the back cover of the book "Original Alfa Romeo Spider" (the Restorers Guide) by Chris Rees. Lastly, the car runs and drives great, and I am only selling because I have too many cars and not enough storage for them all. Pre-purchase inspections are permitted and encouraged. Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer, but I am available to assist with loading.
