I can see it. It's not a very descriptive ad for a top dollar spider. That might be part of the issue.

Are you keeping an eye on the spider on Bring a Trailer Auctions right now?

Car looks good, but agree, the ad is pretty sparse. Also, not really a fan of those seats in a spider. Re-leathered originals might have been better as far as selling at the listed price is concerned. Also, perspex covers over non perspex installed headlights never looks great IMO. ( though this car puts the one on BAT to shame)

I agree with the comments about pictures, the seats and the headlights. It's actually fairly easy to move the headlight buckets to the inside and then purchase the stainless trim rings from Classic Alfa - they're about $20 for the pair IIRC.

Hey I'd appreciate it if you have questions about my car to please bring them up directly either on this forum, where I have a thread about it, or on BaT if you like. Sideways aspersions aren't really helpful. Thanks.

I believe we were talking about the car here, not yours on BAT. Yours looks like a great car, very well presented, exactly the kind of car I like. If I hadn't just bought a 74 Spider I'd consider it. The point we were trying to make here is that it takes a little effort to sell a car. And as a full time car dealer I get a little miffed when people think it's easy to sell cars and get good $ for them.

Thanks for the kind words, and I hope you're happy with your '74. I love mine, but fell for a 71 GTV. I was replying to the comment above about my car, but it's all good.

Me too! I haven't seen it yet, I'm buying it from a friend. But I love my 73 Berlina, and this Spider will be my 15th or so Alfa. A 71 GTV has to be just about my favorite Alfa, but my Berlina fits my kids better.
