You can safely pass on that one. It will not be hard to find other Spiders that have working A/C. There are 4 series of models that were made. Series 3 - about 1984-1991 came in three models - the Spider Veloce and Spider Quad had factory air - the Graduate model did not. The 1992-1994 Series 4 were designed to be a bit more upscale and all had AC with automatic as a transmission option. Prices vary a lot based on condition, mileage, documentation, amount of time sitting in storage. I personally do not know as much about Series 2 examples from the 1970's. There are lots of experts here on AlfaBB.
Good luck with your search
