DT: 1974 Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider Veloce 5-Speed

Up for auction is this 1974 Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider Veloce finished Silver over a black interior. Highlighting a significant styling update over the original Series 1 “Duetto” Spider, the Series 2 Spider featured a revised rear end known among enthusiasts as the "Kamm Tail". This 1974 example is said to have been in storage for over a decade before being acquired out of Austin, Texas in 2014. The current owner later purchased the car in June of 2020 and subsequently relocated to Los Angeles where it resides today. Extensive service is said to have been carried out during that same year which included new Koni shock absorbers, new fuel hoses, spark plugs, engine tuning, a new SPICA microswitch, and much more. This classic Alfa Romeo Spider is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Southern California.

The Pininfarina-designed bodywork comes finished in Silver with a manually retractable soft top in black. The rear bumper has been re-chromed, the headlights have been recently replaced, and the exterior was completely refinished in its original Silver color in 2015 along with rust repairs to the rear wheel wells and trunk floor. A new cloth soft top was also fitted during this time, detailed images are provided in the gallery.  Exterior features include a single driver-side mirror, twin chrome exhaust outlets, and chrome door handles. This Spider rides on a set of upgraded 15” alloy wheels dressed in a set of Goodyear Eagle Sport tires dated from 2014.

The cabin is trimmed in black upholstery with matching carpets and a MOMO Indy Heritage 350mm wood-rimmed steering wheel. A protective cover has been placed over the dashboard and a vintage Boman Astrosonix radio has been fitted, although there are currently no speakers installed.  The speedometer was repaired in 2020 along with the installation of new door locks.

Power comes from a 1,962cc SPICA fuel-injected twin-cam inline four-cylinder engine paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. The seller reports major service in 2020 included new spark plugs, timing adjustments, all new fuel lines in the engine compartment, new intake and exhaust motor mounts, a new alternator belt, SPICA microswitch, fuel system tuning, a new battery, and new Koni shock absorbers.

This sale will include a clean title. A classic open-top Italian sports car with styling by Pininfarina, this well-sorted Alfa Romeo Spider awaits its next owner.

    Sportscarguy3: If you think the Duetta got the attention of “the ladies”, you should know what my XKE Roadster gets.
    Damn good thing that I’m now too old to do anything about that!

    I owned an alpha Romeo spider many years ago , One of many different sports cars I could afford on a carpenters budget.
    It was a great car!
    Fun to drive, classy, and easy to maintain
    Really like the wheels on this model
    Wish I had a place to put it but unfortunately I don’t
    A very good looking alpha Romeo with low miles
    Good luck all

    Funny. My wife told me that she’d leave me if I bought yet another sports car of any sort.
    I’m considering my options here..

  • grillage (registered bidder) 5 days, 5 hoursago

    My wife just told me she’d learn how to drive a manual if I bought this

  • Zach (seller) 6 days, 5 hoursago

    @WRENCH.56 No, I am not aware of any rust remaining anywhere on the car.

  • WRENCH.56 (registered bidder) 6 days, 7 hoursago

    @SummerYellow: I suspect that the battery location in the trunk was some prior owner's pursuit of minor weight distribution dead center to the rear of the car.

  • WRENCH.56 (registered bidder) 6 days, 7 hoursago

    Great looking spider. I know how much fun these things are to drive!
    The write-up mentions rust removal work Performed on the rear fender wells and floor. Are you aware of any rust remaining anywhere in the car?

  • Zach (seller) 6 days, 9 hoursago

    @SummerYellow @SummerYellow Santo's Italian Car Service performed all the work on the car while I have owned it. They specialize in working on classic Alfa Romeos. I believe the battery was re-located to the trunk two owners ago. Not sure why it's there. I was not able to get good photos of the underside of the car when I photographed the car. I will look into taking it somewhere (maybe Santo's), where that can put it on a lift so I can take the additional underside photos. Thank you!

    Great looking Spider!
    What shop has done the mechanical work?
    What’s up with the battery installation in middle of the trunk?
    Can we see under the car- floors and all 4 corners suspension?

    Hi, I’m the owner of this Alfa Romeo. It’s a really fun car to drive and looks great. It’s been a blast taking it to coffee and car meetups, and on windy backroad drives. As you’ll see from the description, I’ve spent a good amount fixing up the car over the last year, and the driving performance has improved quite a lot from these upgrades. In case anyone is wondering, I’m selling the Alfa and my current daily driver, so that I can buy a new daily driver. Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you.
