I have an 82 and I LOVE it. First car I ever actually bought for myself and I still drive it 17 years later.

I specifically searched for an 82. It was the only "best" year for that car IMO.

Yeah Tommy, they are nice....power windows, power mirrors, leather seats, padded canvas top, VERY luxurious....I have a first year '71 1750 spider which by comparison is very 'crude', so it's nice to see the evolution of the series 2's

This is the interior on the '71 for comparison....by the way I could be convinced to let this one go, same a$k as the '82....this one is serious fun too!

Seats redone expertly in fresh supple leather....so nice!

This car has all fresh mechanicals, runs like a demon! These are BOTH great examples to own, drive, and collect...little things like 42 year old rubber mats that are original and in amazing condition as is MOST of the interior...superb 'patina' and given serious consideration these days by experts.

I acquired these Spiders after serious consideration and searching and have been pouring $ into them as I plan still to keep something!

Buy both Alfa's and I will throw in a gorgeous set of Cromodora early magnesium period correct wheels all beautifully refinished, shod with brand new tires. That's near $2k right there. These would look great on either car....these

An impressive Alfa collection for relatively not much $$. FANTASTIC examples, colors, years....note the gap between bumper and hood...these are rarely laser straight like that

ONLY reason selling these sweet example cars is I am needing less cars and more $$ to eventually finish the remodel on my dream car-guy cabin, three car storage with a one bedroom bachelor pad above. Overlooking Lake Tahoe

Don't forget that 82 was the only year to have Bosch FI and the simpler body lines without the rubber spoilers, etc. Check mine out in "my garage"

81 has SPICA and 83 is rubber ducky.

check the FIRST thing I said about the '82 in my original post in this thread...fully agreed and yes, yours IS sweet! Alfa's are finally taking off in value, note ss, guilia/guilietta, and even round tails now...excellent, not JUNK, series 2 spiders are rare and extremely good value at chump change valuation, $15K....

and not mentioned enough, these cars are just an absolute gas to drive...great in twisties, easy in and out, comfortable and roomy, I am 6'1" and it is just EASY. The view from the cockpit is extra sweet, with that wheel, dash layout, and fender view. These are stylish cars, hints of dino's are present, I love 'em! If you aren't aware of the Alfa affliction, well I've got it

here is a list of the mechanical work performed by Santos Foreign in Northridge last winter to get the '71 roadworthy and safe and rippin'! I went the extra distance to enclosed ship the yellow car to L.A. so it could benefit from the work done at THE best Alfa mechanics available anywhere, in my opinion. For those that don't know, the '71 1750 is the first year of the kamm tail cars and shares the peppy higher revving 1750 motor of the roundtail spiders...'72 they upped to 2.0 liter and stayed forever with that configuration.

REPLACE INTAKE AND EXHAUST MOTOR MOUNT
REPLACE TIE ROD AND ALIGNMENT
REPLACE TRANSMISSION MOUNT
REPLACE TWO MUFFLER BUSHING
REPLACE DRIVESHAFT CENTER SUPPORT AND FLEX
DISC
REPLACE CENTER AND REAR MUFFLER
REPLACE REAR BRAKE PADS AND ROTORS
REPLACE BRAKE MASTER CYL AND BLEED SYSTEM
REBUILD TRANSMISSION
REMOVE REAR AXLE, OPEN UP AND REPLACE
BEARING, RESEAL, AND INSTALL
REPLACE SHIFT BOOT
MAJOR TUNE UP
REPLACE DRIVER AND PASSENGER DOOR STOPS
OPTIMA YELLOW TOP BATTERY

Relative to the '82 Spider...here is also photos of the manual and extensive service records right down to miles per gallon with every tank, previous owner was a fanatic!

eventually someone gonna see exceptional value here. I am gonna really sweeten up this cool Alfa collection of cars/wheel sets by adding a set of beautiful Melber Major wheels. These Melber (Italian period correct) wheels are the BOMB in Alfa world. They come in 14" x 7" which are popular with the racers...lightweight, wide, and attractive on phat stance GTV's and the like, and 14" x 6" which I am offering up. These I have found to be the most rare, they are better suited to a spider which when riding on too wide of rubber, tend to steer like tractors, skinny is in! Here is a photo of the wheel sans tires, and a set mounted up on a very attractive spider

Two great cars, two additional coveted wheel sets, Alfa heaven.

Mike

Won't make any promises but I showed the car to my wife and she is interested. Her biggest concern is will I fit in the car (6'3"). It's her car but I got lucky when I found her as she always considers me when purchasing things.

Any thoughts on my fit in the car? Also, we might fly out and drive it back (Kansas City) for a long week. Any concerns?

Marc
