1986 Spider Veloce - My lovely wife lived in Italy for 6 years in her twenties, and always saw this as her perfect car - and my perfect project! Great fun to drive, and with that 5th gear goes well on the highway.

Times change, and downsizing has led to no space or facilities for doing my own work on it, so this lovely car needs a new home and some TLC - hopefully it can go to a home where someone can work on it and bring it up to it's full potential, which had been my goal when I bought it 12 years ago.

In my possession it has never been operated or stored outside in the winter. Driven rarely these days, very low mileage per year. Mileage on the clock 44,674. It comes with a bunch of spares (new and used) tools and accessories that indicate the things I was planning on working on, but just can't do now.

Mechanically it is in great condition, having had a complete engine rebuild just before I purchased it. I have focused mainly on getting it running smoothly. There is a little rust in the passenger side door, front wing. The interior door panels are more or less shot - I still have them but one is off the car (was planning on using it as a template for a winter project to build new interior panels.). The original tan upholstery is functional but not that pretty (stitching issues rather than tears in the actual fabric.). Both of the wing mirrors are modern replacements and non-motorized (I have the parts for I think both originals, which I had hoped to repair.)

It is available any time, located in Newburyport, MA. Note that titles are not issued in NH for cars earlier than 1999 model year. I do have a copy of the MA title that I had before moving to NH. We will be sad to see it go, but happy if our alfa can go to a new loving home.
