Alfa 1750 Spider Veloce


Recommended Posts

This one came into the workshop for some pre-sale prep, the owner's husband had passed away prematurely about five years ago and it had been dry stored and required recomissioning. After much negotiation and convincing her I was not a car dealer or flipper, I managed to secure it.... I've registered it in my wife's name and it's her 40th birthday present!

It rewarded me on the way home by spitting out 4th gear synchro and then blowing its starter motor. A gearbox rebuild, reduction gear starter and some other bits and pieces later, we've covered about 500 trouble free Autumn miles.

This 1750 model is quite rare, only 140 RHD examples. Colour is "Skipper Blue".

@johndglynn I believe you remotely valued it.

Can't see the pics but yes I remember the car. Looked a peach in photos and the owner was good fun to deal with.

Much Alfa Romeo envy. Be nice to see it touring the Lenches one day @reddevil

 

The other Nige

This is my long way to the “office” so quite possible! We had a show in Leamington last Sunday and had one of those drives via Inkberrow top down sun coming up at 7am…

Indeed she was, turns out she’s in the same industry as my wife.
