Alfa Romeo 2600 Touring Spider for Sale #AR191207

I am listing my 1963 Alfa Romeo 2600 Spider for sale. I have owned this car for 45 years. After driving it for two years, I started the restoration and spent the next 30 years working on it in my spare time. It is not a show car, but a very nice, well-sorted driver. It is fitted with the optional three Weber carburetors (45 DCOE-9) on a Weber intake manifold. I made some modifications for safer use in modern traffic, but all of these modifications can be reversed to the original configuration with no signs that they were there. Seats are modern Acura seats and sliders which accept headrests. A bar is mounted behind the seats in a way that allows proper positioning of shoulder belts and, therefore, 3-point seat belts are fitted. This bar is bolted in and can be easily removed. The original seats are included and they are complete but have not been restored. After removing the Acura seats, the original seats will slide right in. One of the pictures, made during the restoration, shows the original seats in the car. When making the new wiring harness, circuits were added for a third brake light (mounted above the license plate), hazard warning flashers and extra relays for high beam, low beam and fog lights. The front turn signals have been modified internally with extra parking light bulbs to show to the side. This car was built in late '62 and is a 'Series 1' and would originally have had drum brakes on the rear but, when I got it in '71, it had been converted to rear discs and Borrani wire wheels. They are not the factory optional narrow Borrani wires that were 400 mm diameter with aluminum rims. These are Borrani center-laced wires 6" X 15" and are all steel. The wheels and the three-eared knock-offs have not been restored and are the weak link. The pictures make them look better than they are, but one picture shows a close-up of the worst one. These are the only wheels I have and there are five of them. Recently, new Borrani reproductions have become available that are the correct size. New two-eared or three-eared knock-offs are also available. Some pieces still have the original chrome (tail light housings and door handles, for example). The interior is done in leather, including the dash. The factory hard-top is included and is complete. A used, spare windshield and differential are also included, as well as tail light housings and lenses, plus various other spares, but I do not have the original tool box. I am in north central Florida, near Gainesville, 120 miles north of Orlando. This link will take you to more pictures: https://www.flickr.com/photos/611971...57664801441059
Please send me a private message through this forum or to my email address, which I will spell out in order to reduce spam, so you will have to convert it into the usual email configuration. Price, $98,000.
Thanks,
Larry Bono

Stunning. Beautiful. Making me lust after another man's car (isn't that one of the ten commandments? if so, guilty as charged, lol). Feel it would be well worth your price, but so far out of this guy's realm (at the moment). Hope you find a worthy buyer, that can be trusted to keep this car in the shape you have, for over 4 decades.

One of the prettiest I have ever seen, honestly. Great job you did.

How about a rear view shot, to further tease me, and potential buyers.

Thanks David. I always thought I would never sell it, but age and the fact that my son is not in a position to keep it when I die, caused me to try to sell. I love this car and it gave me a lot of satisfaction over many years. I have been known to sit with my morning coffee and just look at it.

I have a '64 2600 Touring Spider also and looking at your car makes me want to begin the restoration. My car was previously owned by Peter Baltemacchio. Many like the earlier 2000 Touring....I really like the 2600.....the engine alone is worth the admission. These are the next Maserati 3500 GT's except prettier. Good luck with the sale. It should sell quick.

Of course you do.

I was lurking here last year but later somehow I got confused with another Alfa owners' site and got misled. That one did not look familiar and thought that this site refreshed the look. Stupid me.

I hope you got all the emails I have sent so far. Please let me know if not so.

w/ smiles
Jimmy

PS. Would wait for your reply.

It is listed in Larry's first post. Looks like a good deal. An original Weber manifold for these cars is very, very rare.
