1986 Alfa Romeo Spider 2.0 Quadrifoglio Verde For Sale
Up for sale is my Alfa Romeo Series 3 Spider 2.0-litre. This is a genuine Quadrifoglio Verde model confirmed by a certificate of authenticity from the Alfa Romeo Archives in Turin.
Originally sold new in Denmark, it was brought to the UK by well-known importers Bell and Colville and converted to right hand drive before being sold for the first time in the UK when it was around six months old.
The good bits. The car is extremely solid underneath, there is no rust and the sills have been replaced and are absolutely solid. It has four brand new tyres, just had a full service and has been tuned up by a local classic car specialist who balanced the carburettors and checked the timing. It drives great and pulls nicely through all the gears. There is loads of history with the car including MOTs going back to 1994 and some hefty bills from Alfa Specialists. It is MOT’d to February 2020.
The not-so-good bits. The pictures do flatter the paintwork somewhat. There are some patchy parts where it has had some touch ups in the past as well as some damage from bird lime. There is also some bubbling under the paint on the front wing and the side skirts would benefit from refitting. The canvas hood keeps most of the weather out but if you are planning on using it year-round you may wish to invest in a replacement.
The last MOT produced an advisory regarding one of the rear bearings. I have had the car up in the air and there is some very minor play in the wheel. That said, if you google the issue it seems to be common on these cars with most owners saying that it is normal for the car. The replacement part however is cheaply and easily obtained.
The best way to assess the car is to come and have a look. It's not a concourse example by any means but the price reflects that. It would make an ideal solid base for a rolling restoration or use every day as is.
I am located south east of Sheffield, around 10 minutes from either Junction 30 or 31 on the M1.
