For sale is a 1977 Spider, one owner from new with 35,700 miles
Runs and drives great!

Absolutely ZERO rust! The underside looks like new!

This car has spent its life in southern California and Arizona before coming to Colorado a year ago.

It is orange with black interior and a black top

The good-
Zero rust and super clean!
New head gasket just installed (was leaking oil- no other problems)
Interior is all original and looks very good
The car shifts great- no 2nd gear issues
Bumpers are in very good condition

The bad-
The nose was repainted at some point- no signs of repair work- believed to be for rock chips- otherwise all original paint.
Needs a new top
Stitching in seats is coming apart in places- not torn
It does have some very minor dents and scratches (it's 42 years old) :)
Emission equipment has been removed- so if you live in a place that needs it, you would have to find the parts and reinstall them

$7000



PM me if interested.

You guys in the U.S. are really "spoiled" when it comes to Spiders.
Usd 8,100 !!!
Over here a similar car but in Euro Spec would cost Usd. 20-22,000.

Because there are so many here. Under appreciated IMO as are the later Juniors.

Very nice car. If it were a few years older (1974 or older), it would be sitting in my driveway. Someone should grab your car - it's a nice one!

Well, there's that part about it being red...

Seriously, I bought my 77 about a year ago, or maybe less. 67k, zero rust, one owner, unmolested, not really driven for 18 years (got got old and died), dealer maintained.

I'm probably up to $10k now, without having to go into the engine, trans, diff, or brakes. So - new tires, springs, bushings, a little interior repair, new carpets, new top, bumper conversion, trim detailing.

My point being, depending upon the wear variables (see my list above), $7k starts to sound like a right price. If it needs tires, top, etc....???

When was paint done? Recently, I'm betting. Headlights converted for covers, but covers gone and holes filled?

Hello
Is the car still available? i live in California and will need to place smog equipment on the car. Any idea what will be needed on this car and what the cost may be?

You will be required to install whatever equipment that was on the car as it was when it was imported. In California the requirements will be much more stringent.
