Afra 2600 Spares

I haven't looked at the Afra website for a while but they seem to have increased the number of spares they supply ( if you can afford them)

A couple of rare parts often asked for

Soft top clips

stainless steel under door side spears

There have been reviews of AFRA elsewhere, but it seems useful to include a comment on this unique company.

It was, and still is, a repository for parts that Alfa, and others, declared obsolete. Thus, they often had a great many impossible to find, original equipment parts that were not available elsewhere. As these parts have become depleted, they have expanded their focus to include aftermarket parts. Sometimes these parts are the same as can be had elsewhere, and sometimes they are reproductions of variable quality.

When their only inventory was true OEM product, in OEM packaging, with OEM part numbers still attached, there were very few problems. As their stock is increasingly aftermarket, the problems have expanded, often due to misidentification. Unfortunately, they seem to still have "we are the OEM dealer source" mentality, so can resist admitting an error.

They are still invaluable when they have rare, OEM parts, but tread carefully, and document your request completely, in detail.

Thanks for the contributions. We still don't have any domestic suppliers except for Re-Originals... anybody know if there are any out there, particularly ones focused on the mechanical side of things?

I prefer to avoid Re-O, although others have done fine.

Given the small population of our 102/106 cars, we are fortunate to have any vendors at all, let alone several competing for our business.

If you have not yet tried the listed European vendors, prepare to be surprised. For example, I ordered a set of rod bushings for my Montreal from Classic Alfa on a Tuesday morning. They were delivered Thursday midday with a freight charge of roughly $24. Plus, the bushings themselves were slightly less expensive than the U.S. sources.

OKP can take slightly longer and the freight cost slightly more than Classic Alfa, but there's something to be said for the efficiency of getting everything at one place.

Point taken (I'm certainly far from looking a gift horse in the mouth), but if I'm buying parts abroad I'll want to carefully plan and consolidate orders to be cost-effective with shipping... something with which I've been a bit less careful when ordering domestically.

Hopefully this isn't too much of a tangent from this subject, but I've been lucky enough to get most of my parts without having to look abroad. Are vendors generally willing to charge pre-VAT prices to people with a non-UK/EU mailing address? Or do you have to pay full price and claim back VAT afterwards?

Thanks,
Chris

So far, all have deleted any VAT charges. There might be one or two that won't, but I'd be surprised if you could get the parts they offer elsewhere.

This thread relates to the 102 and 106 cars built between late 1958 to around 1966 or so. If you've been able to get parts for these cars in the U.S., please share your sources. There are NO common parts with the late-model 2000 offered between 1971 and 1995.

Having said that, Classis Alfa in the UK is a very competitive source for late model parts as well, and usually with quicker delivery.

Don't Forget the Alfa parts places on Ebay!

I have shopped quite often on Ebay -- especially for rubber parts:

(1) MISTER FIAT in his Ebay store called "Everything Alfa" is in Altanta, GA. I just checked this a.m. He has 119 items for 2000,2600 spider cars. He lists his parts by cars and shows Freccia d'Oro, 1900, two liter and 2600 among others. He has very good feedback.

(2) LALFAITALIA in Vertura County, California hs lots of used parts for two liter and 2600. He at least at one time owned a two liter, so he knows about parts for them. He also has a store.

(3) FATDOGENT on the East Coast has the Ebay store called Fat Dog Vintage Auto Parts, and sells used parts.

Don't forget ROCKAUTO.com

At "www.Rockauto.com" I have been able to buy many weird and strange Alfa parts -- including bearings, seals, and other items that Alfa apparently bought from American suppliers, had shipped to Italy, and then over the years has been selling a premium prices. Frankly, the only bearings specifically ALFA are the shouldered ones in the split case transmission. If you can get a part number of any kind -- even the Alfa number (better the "European" number) Rockauto not only will have it, it will have a picture of it on their catalog so you can see it looks to be the right one.
