The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
Now this is a car that you will not see out cruising the beat on a regular basis. This car is the embodiment of rare, and there are thought to be very few of them in the United States currently. The 1986 Alfa Romeo Spider was a special car to say the least and it was very much liked and admired all across the nation.
For a little bit of history on the car, the Series 3 Spider was first initially previewed in North America for the 1982 model year with the introduction of 2.0 liter Bosch electronic fuel injection to replace the SPICA mechanical injection that was standard in the Series 2. The Series 3 was considered to be the, “Coming into the fold” year for the Spiders, and the 1986 Alfa Romeo Spider could not embody that concept any better.
To look further into it, the Spider underwent a major styling revamp in 1983 to make it look more current with the times and to simply increase its practicality too. To do this, the car saw changes like the introduction of black rubber front and rear bumpers on all models. The front bumper now incorporated the grille and a small soft rubber spoiler was added to the trunk lid too. The change altered the exterior appearance of the car considerably and was considered to be liked and admired by the car buyers of that time period. Under the hood and on the interior, various other minor mechanical and aesthetic modifications were also made to the car as well, all making for what many thought to be the “Golden Years” of the Alfa Romeo Spider.
Fast forwarding a bit to the year in question, a few minor changes occurred from 1986 to 89, including new paint colors to give buyers more options and more ideas for what to get, a center high mount stop lamp that was loved and was first introduced midway through 1986 for North American models, and a move away from the older, 70s style fade-prone brown carpet. The 1986 car also got all new turn signal levers. These changes were all widely accepted as this truly was the Golden Era for the Alfa Romeo Spiders.
