Hello,
Does anybody have a picture you can post of the original a/c knob and cigarette light for a 1983 Spider Veloce? I want to make sure I am buying the correct items for the age car.

Thanks!!

Through 85 until the switch to monopod and its console rig in 86, though I 'think' the actual AC knob arrangement was the same even if in a different location in the later ones.

BTW, the lighter looks like a lighter as opposed to the earlier S2 versions that had the hole you dropped the cigarette into.
Black rubber knob with a smoking cigarette emblazoned in white on it.
That out of a mid~late 90's Saturn is actually very close in appearance, but the size of it is off just enough that it won't go in the Alfa socket.

I have no affiliation and don't know anything about this seller -- I just did a search on ebay


alfa romeo spider OEM cigarette lighter assembly | eBay
Man...I guess I don't have any luck when I search stuff on Ebay. I looked for one yesterday didn't find any.

Thanks for the heads up...I'm going to ask the seller some more questions and for additional pics of the top.

Thanks again for looking out !!

You could also post a "Wanted" ad on the classifieds section of this board.

Side note -- The a/c knob looks exactly like the a/c knob on the '75 Toyota Corolla I had when I was in high school (if I can remember something like that from almost 30 years ago). Probably not the same dimensions on the connecting side, but you never know.
