Time has come, I'm selling my Spider, its all original, its on Bring a Trailer now: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/19...a-spider-1600/
I've gone thru the whole car mechanically, from nose to tail, new springs, shocks, tires, bushings, fuel pump, water pump, re-built carb, dipped gas tank, flushed and rodded radiator, everything works, lights, heater, wipers, even replaced the footwell floor pans. Car is 100% hop in turn key and it starts, single carb 32 solex, 5 speed, no crunching of gears, steers tight and straight, disc brakes up front with new lines and pads.
You can give me flack about the seats... I know, I have the original passenger seat but it needs restoration. The seats in it are from a 91 Spider recovered to match the red, and they are comfortable!
You can really drive this car anywhere without hassle, or restore it further, I found it, it had been sitting since 1982, so went through the whole car making it a perfect driver but leaving it cosmetically alone. I'm sure I've done other things to it too that I'm leaving out, but its a great car for someone that want something honest.
