Hey Guys!
I have a nice 71 Spider for sale! This car came from Jerry Quinlisk, a good friend of mine that passed away last year.
The car had a 1750 rebuilt new engine ( race blue print- built by an Alfa pro in FL) when Jerry purchased the car in 2009.
I have done much of the electrical work and about to finish the cosmetic on the hand brake. The car has a beautiful 2 stage paint job done in 2009 and still in beautiful condition. I will put pictures when I complete the car.
These 71 Spyder's are very desirable as you all know.
I will sell the car because I have my 69 GTV...in my stall my pride and joy and its not for sale.

The NADA guide cals for low retail $15.900
Avarage Retail $27.00
High Retail $43.600

I am asking $14,000 Cash.
The car is Red Exterior with Black interior.
No rips on the seats or panels. It has a New Black Canvas top.
Turbine Campenello Alloy wheels with 4 white haul tires.
1750 Rebuilt engine with Twin Weber carbs 36,000 Miles since rebuilt in 2009, runs perfect with lots of power.
Gearbox shifts all 5 gears with no grinds on 2 gear.
New battery installed and Starter weeks ago.
New set of horns.
Pictures listed already!
Rust free car and very solid body.


BUMP! PRICE REDUCED FOR SERIOUS BUYER'S ONLY !! CONTACT ME VIA PRIVAT MAIL.

Will be going for Surgery at Hospital...the second week of March and no longer can drive sports cars...this is the very reason I can not keep this beauty, oh well life goes on, hope it will find a good owner soon.

Keep me posted !

What would it take to push it out of the garage and take more pics? Looks as if it's jacked up in the rear.
I am waiting on the hand brake parts to complete the job. only then I will mount the rear wheels and ready to drive any were.
I just want to make sure every thing is working on the car.
Thanks for the inquire.

Looks like a 2 liter motor with spin-on oil filter. Maybe it's a '72?
No its not a 2.0L motor with the spin on filter!
Please stop assuming things when you have not seen the car or have any idea what you are talking about!
This engine is a 1750 period correct! The oil Filter canister was capped with a plate and installed a spin on housing because its much easier to buy Filter spin on and cheaper to maintain that's the reason...……..So think before assuming things you don't know. Hope this will clear up your dough and anyone else.

So, my understanding is that you had the original oil filter removed and blocked off and had a 2 liter front cover installed that has the screw-on oil filter. I would like to know how the oil passages were modified, because the 2 liter front covers and blocks have the oil passage located in a slightly different position. Later 105 1300 and 1600 front covers and their respective blocks had spin-on oil filters located on the front cover.
These motors never came to the US. It's possible that later 1750's used a similar front cover that could be used? A good photo of the original oil filter location on the block,with it's block off plate and the engine serial number would go a long way towards identifying this as a correct 1750.

I am also interested in how to do this to 1750. I have both kinds of spin-on filter adapters, the Wes Hurlock one, and the other one that's billet alum. Both of these take off from the canister port on the block, and locate the filter either out (Hurlock) or fore and down (the other one that the name escapes me). I'd like one that locates it where the 2L motor has it, like this one shows. If you have any info on it, I'd appreciate that!

Is this a eurospec 1750 with Webers or a US version that originally came with Spica, then converted to Webers?
1750 Spica blocks in 1971 had the spin-on oil filter on the front cover.

My 71 spider with 1750 and Spica has canister type filter, not front cover spin on type. Hence my question about this conversion.

Late Alfetta-era 1800s had spin on, as did late 1600s (only after US era). So maybe it's a later 1750 block and cover? They have to go together, you can't mix and match, as the direction of the oil is reversed depending on the filter location.
