1959 2000 Touring Heat Shield

Hello All,

Does anyone have for sale of know someone I might contact that has an exhaust manifold heat shield for a 1959 2000 Spider. Thanks much for your help.

Mark

P.S. I am also looking for a photo of the correct inside engine hood details. I honestly have never seen an original Thank you

I may have a spare shield. I'm still unpacking after a move, and have never fully inventoried what I bought earlier this year. It may be several weeks or more before I get it all laid out, but I have a faint recollection of seeing two shields. Remind me in a month if I haven't gotten back to you.

Interestingly, one sold on Ebay about 3 or 6 months ago.

Past Alfas...
59 102 Touring (first Alfa $500 running)
65 Sprint GT (2nd Alfa, $500 daily driver)
102 Sprint (never did anything with it, but wish I had)
74 Berlina (first new car - now certainly rusted into oblivion)
61 Giulietta Spider G-Prod Race Car (where is it now?)
84 Spider Veloce (rarely drove it, so sold it)
86 Quadrifoglio (Dull car - no more 115s for me)

Current Alfas
59 102 Touring Roadster - restoration complete, enough Alfa for any rational man. Or irrational, for that matter
1971 Alfa Montreal (see above comment regarding rationality)

And past...
Two 1946 Stampe SV4C (c/n 294 "Rocinante" - wife's favorite airplane. RIP), and c/n 235 "La Bon Temps Femme" (gone to a new home, but never forgotten)
Zlin 50LA (+9 -6 gees, titanium spar, 1200 lbs, 260HP rumored to now be in Brazil)
1946 Luscombe 8A
Starduster Too (recently spotted at the Nevada City, CA airport - over 20 years and an entire continent separating it from our stewardship in Binghamton, NY)
1955 Cessna 170B (wife taught me to fly tailwheel in this)

And present...
64 Mooney M20E ("Rambo". My faithful steed for over 30 years) Nearly 50 years old, and just returned from a trip to Argentina in him
Newest in the fleet
1967 Piper Super Cub on Wipline amphibious floats (a true "all terrain vehicle")
2010 Triumph Thunderbird


You can snap roll an Alfa only one time...

Question Do you mean exhaust heat shield?

There are two different exhaust heat shields depending on the number and year of your car. The earliest ones were held with two fasteners bolted to the exhaust header bolts, and a single one at the place where the exhaust manifolds joined. The later ones were much smaller, and were held with only one bolt on top and the second on the exhaust joinder. What are your numbers for chassis and engine? I have both. I personally dislike the earlier style because the headers look nice.

Thumbs up Yes

Franco. You have an early version heat shield for a two liter. I know they were on 58 version, and may have been on some of the 59. I prefer the smaller one held by only two bolts because the exhaust manifolds are good looking. Jay

I'm glad you found a heat shield. Please post pictures of it so we can see how they are different from each other.
