This was stuck to the nose of my ‘86 spider by the PO.
I know it’s not original but does anyone know what year/model it belongs to?
It needs a new home and I want to list it properly.

That script (2-piece) is from a Series 2 Spider.

On my '84 I replaced the tall factory rear spoiler with a low-profile Zender spoiler. The 3 badges on the factory spoiler were lost, so I added the Series 2 Alfa badge on the traditional slope, similar to '30's Alfas.

That looks good. Tell me more about this zender spoiler. Did you have a 3rd brake light previously?

David that is a very well done touch! Great idea for a classic logo.

I could be wrong but I think the one piece plastic logo was introduced with the S4 Spider. I got one.

The one-piece badge in Ossodiseppia's post looks great on the S2, but won't fit on the trailing edge of the Zender spoiler; it's also too large for either side of the black cove between the license plate & the S3 taillights.

My badge isn't plastic, it's polished chrome; I thought it was from a Series 2, but could be mistaken. I hope it doesn't get taken as crappy aftermarket.

Tarps3, the original soft spoiler did not have a 3rd brake light; '86 & later S3s have a hard plastic spoiler with an integrated 3rd brake light. I've added a 3rd brake light to my car and will post pictures tomorrow.

yes, but S4 plastic stick-on one looks different to that one shown in post #7.....notice the little connecting bar between "alfa" and "romeo".

Right... but I distinctly remember a 2 piece script from the earlier cars. Maybe it's a matter of model year. Oh well...

what is definitely duetto?....the 2 piece badge in post #1?
I doubt that...where are the pins for a start?

I'm with Osso (post #7) it looks aftermarket, casting not sharp enough (to my liking, at least)

@Tarps3...it is chromed metal or plastic?
its an aftermarket thing.
chromed plastic.

the PO had it stuck to the nose of my spider.

Maybe @Tarps3 could post a picture of the back side.
It doesn't have pins - it just double-stick tape.
looks to be a plastic aftermarket thing.

I've removed several other items of "decoration" by the PO.
He loved the "brand" apparently but not the mechanical upkeep. :rolleyes:
logos everywhere....
I imagine he had the jacket, the t-shirt, the ball cap...etc.
