I need a commuter car and will trade this fun, upcoming classic for it. (Sale price reduced to $5,900/obo, under Hagerty's Valuation ranges from $6,500-$13,000.) Would consider hybrid trade with cash from me. The Pininfarina designed two-seat roadster debuted by Alfa Romeo in 1966. Early examples (check any motor guide) sell for over $50,000. Better than MGB, Triumph (or even Miata), the Spider comes with a five-speed transmission with racing shifting pattern, four-wheel disc brakes, fuel injection and a large 1,962 cc four-cylinder engine.

As Italian semi-exotics go, the Spider is an attainable dream car, and the 1990 is considered one of the best years to get. This 1990 example is in very good mechanical condition, all original and low mileage. Thanks to the film, The Graduate, it remains Alfa's most-recognized product.

FUN TO DRIVE! Recent tires and suspension make it a fun drive on curvy roads. The Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce has glove soft leather upholstery, power windows and mirrors (new ones installed recently), aluminum wheels, and a cloth top.

BEAUTIFUL! It is attention getting. I always get waves. Unique. This car has style, from the classic curvy Pininfarina body to the fit-like-gloves seats. This car has a reasonably sized trunk, unaffected by closing the convertible top. It is easy; you only need to reach back to pull the canvas top over your head!

CLASSIC! Alfa Romeo is one of the most passionate of car manufacturers and holds a high level of respect. The all-alloy engine featuring steel cylinder liners for durability is a double-overhead cam design with hemispherical heads, from Alfa's racing past. Each of their cars are works of art. Very quick, can take any corner at speed. Most enjoyable ride in a classic sports car you can have, IMHO.

PLUSES: No rust, reg paid, California car, all glass original, smogged and ready to go, tires and suspension are fairly new, interior upholstery is original leather beautiful and complete, complete mechanical checkout done (F&J Alfa in Campbell), new AAA battery with guarantee, always had synthetic motor oil and a nice Alpine stereo. (Includes new Blaupunkt speakers in box, ready to be installed).

MINUSES: Original paint has flaws (see photo on hood), the carpet has a hole (includes ready to install replacement original factory carpet; the floorboards are solid), small crack in the dashboard (not detectable), A/C was disconnected by the previous owner to increase horsepower (all components there but I have no idea how much it would cost. I just lowered the top. Also, the original vinyl rear window is fogging up.

PLEASE TEXT, NO PHONE CALLS. I don't need help in selling my car. Thank you
