Classic Car Overview

Our Nashville showroom digitally showcases this 1981 Alfa Romeo Spider. The owner of this Alfa Romeo has spent countless hours searching the world for the parts to restore the car to this incredible level. He purchased over 20 different Spiders to get correct parts to replace those on this car that he felt were subpar. Not wanting aftermarket parts attached to this car he would purchase cars to get a couple of parts off it then sell it and buy another. He told me a story about buying a car just to get the steering wheel because it was the best he had even seen. I can not imagine the time it took him to pick out just the right color, but he ended up using Charming grey, which looks like a medium grey or grey with a hint of purple depending on the light. Wes Ingram the Alfa Guru had a hand in some of the parts used in this build like the windage tray. The fuel injection system that the factory used has been replaced with 2 Weber DCOE 45s side drafts. Now in 1981 this Alfa Romeo would have had 111 Horsepower, while never dynoed the owner believes with the upgrades, she puts out right at 200 horsepower. The custom leather interior is almost brand new and contrasts the Charming grey perfectly. Now I have to mention the obvious, when was the last time you saw a 1981 Alfa Romeo with a hardtop? Or, and this one will need explanation, A receiver hitch? OK, now the explanation. It seems the owner likes to camp and owns a very small boat so this car was used to move the boat from the camp to the boat ramp. Now, please do not let your mind run wild, this was not a 65-foot cabin cruiser. This 81 Alfa for sale is light on its feet, responds to the slightest touch of the accelerator pedal or movement of the steering wheel. Words can not do justice to the feeling you get behind the wheel of this sports car, lively and quick with the wind in your hair, this must have been what it felt like to fly an open cockpit biplane. Options for this Alfa Romeo spider for sale include: Manual convertible top, Power brakes, windows and mirrors, Seat belts, Leather interior, Alloy rims with radial tires. This Alfa Romeo Spider for sale can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD video at www.gatewayclassiccars.com for more information please call the showroom at 615-213-1800 or email us at nashville@gatewayclassiccars.com
