BaT Auction: 1991 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce

This post was originally published on this site

This 1991 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce shows 17,374 miles and was sold new at W.C. Motor Co. of Manchester, Missouri for just over $25k. It was acquired six months ago by the selling dealer, who reports that the car has been located in Salt Lake City, Utah for several years with a collector, and also that it was garaged and only driven sparingly during summer months. This Series 4 example is powered by a 2.0-liter twin-cam four, which is mated to an optional automatic transmission here. The cabin is equipped with tan leather and air conditioning, and an oil service and inspection were performed within the past month. This Alfa Spider is now being offered with an accident-free Carfax report and a clean Utah title.

The Alfa Spider was designed by Pininfarina as denoted by the badging located just aft of the doors. With a December 1990 build date, this Spider Veloce was sold as a 1991 model in North America. Cosmetic changes for the Series 4 included body-color bumpers, updated taillights, and a deletion of the rear spoilers.

The Carfax shows mileage reporting through 2010 when the vehicle was sold with 15k miles, which leads the seller to believe the mileage is accurate. The 1994 mileage inconsistency is thought to be an error.
