If you look at the Fusi Production Numbers, an 0551 motor is correct for a U.S. model 1971 1750 Spider.

The 0548 engine numbers weren’t used on the U.S. Spec cars, although they were in other parts of the world.

A tip of the hat to Tubut who originally posted them back in 2006.

71 Spider

Oh 551 is a Spica motor? That makes sense. Is this car still running Spica? I know a lot of people swap out the front timing cover if they're doing a carburettor conversion.

Great looking Spider!

I have a 1971 also - great little car!

Here are some things I know about my 1971:
1. My car has the original motor, a 2000, not a 1750.
2. It came with a SPICA system and was changed to dual Webers.
3. The battery is at the front left of the engine compartment. Interesting that your battery is in the trunk. Original or did they modify.
4. Badges on the tail = Iniezione on the left and Alfa Romeo on the right.

If I didn't have my 1971, I'd be a player on your car.

Good luck! You should be able to sell it pretty easily. Right color and looks nice.

Thanks for your kind words, indeed its a beautiful car that needs nothing at this point and time.
With regards to your question on the battery.....yes it was modified, removed from the front engine compartment and replaced on the Trunk....this way the engine has more space. The Iniezione his the correct emblem to be on the left rear tail of the car instead my 2000....my guess was to fool alfa owners. my brother ones had a Mitsubishi diesel Truck and he installed a Alfa Center grill, that did not make it an ALFA TRUCK, however lots of folks that don't know any better though it was an Alfa eheheheheh. Have a great day!

Good info about the battery relocation. I was thinking of doing the same thing to my '71. I have a 1980 and a 1982 Spider that has the battery in the trunk - same location as yours.

FYI, the 1980 and 1982 don't drive like the '71. Nor do they have the same "cool factor". Chrome bumpers, cool interior, carbs vs SPICA or Bosch!

I think you'll have no problem getting your asking price for the car. Gorgeous body, fun to drive, responsive, open air, mechanical feel, the right color (red), great condition and Webers! For a modest amount of money, your '71 Alfa will make someone really happy.

Happy selling!

So many questions...I have the nearly identical car in Southern California that I did a bare metal restoration on in 2003.

Why is the battery in the trunk?
$43.6K NADA estimate??? Would you please post a link to that data?
My original 1750 engine has a spin on filter - was it modified before I bought the car in '92 (seems unlikely). My '65 Giulietta Veloce had a canister filter (giant PITA), that we modified to accept a Jag spin on...

Terrific to see another 1750 being well cared for! Congrats and GTWTS!
