Thanks man. I know. That’s why I have to sell it. In full! Also need to move my beautiful and rare 1970 smooth nose JNR. Has a 1750 engine. First of smoothnoses crossover with last of steps. Never came to the USA. One of the best driving cars I have. That’s going in BAT.

Sweet Spider! Especially love the trick roll bar. Are you able to actually use the rear view mirror?

Btw, was this a former BB'ers Alfa? If true, you've done a great job of sorting this out. I recall it was really solid but needed a steady hand to finish the details...

Thanks. Yes this car was owned by Jerry Quinlisk, a well known Alfisti who passed away a couple of years ago. 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 bought it off a friend of his and have spent a lot of time having her tuned up. Improved suspension, replaced interior with all the proper pieces. I’ve also added a new radio refurbished from its original radio. Now has blue tooth and hands free calling. The roll bars fit perfectly like they were made for the car. No problems closing the roof and does not impede the rear view mirror. I’d love for it to go to an Alfisti.

I guess if no interest here I will put in BAT. Pity.

I saw that car a couple years ago just outside of Nashville. I actually flew out there based on the description from the seller. I was pretty upset when I saw the condition of the car and I left without buying it. I was traveling with cash, but it needed too much work for the price.

I'm glad you were able to get it fixed up. The roll bar set up is really cool!

Good luck with your sale.

Thanks man. Well I was here in Nashville so I guess I’m the idiot that decided to save it. Repainted, updated everything! Just run out of room. Cheers

I'm very interested. Have been trying to find a pre-76 model (since im located in CA and want webers) for about 5 months now, but haven't found the right one. searched all over Ebay, craigslist, BaT, Facebook, still cab't find a pre 76 S2 spider worth purchasing.

The other day I randomly came in contact with an alfa mechanic who listed his 71 1750 on BaT but is still waiting for them to post his listing (has been 2 weeks now since he is still waiting for his listing to go live for bidding).

I see in the last listing from 2011 it says the car is in TN. is the car still in TN?

Thanks. You can contact me personally at my cell 949-838-7714 as well

Is this car still for sale?
Hi.
Yes it is. I’ve just had the carbs tuned, car serviced, replaced the starter and put in new Konis. I pick it up tomorrow 😄
