1986 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce
Had my new purchase of 1986 Spider Veloce delivered about 10 days ago and for a car that hasn’t seen plates registration since 1998 it’s a little better than expected. The car was abandoned and sat in a garage until the owner of the garage had it towed and was subsequently parked at an inside impound/storage garage. I had seen the car a couple of years ago but never gave it much thought. An offer to sell the car was made to me and I decided to buy. I’ve had the VIN checked and applied for new title in Indiana. Moving forward with the restore/??, my goal is to see if it runs. The body is decent but has the typical rust spots and a few that aren’t typical (a rut line of bubbles on the top of the drivers side front fender, seems an odd spot). As the car was a tow in there were no keys, I checked into a couple of lock services and decided it would be about the same cost + - to buy new ignition switch with keys. Started that project yesterday, from reading the BB about ignition switch changes and what is actual in my car it appears I’m going to have to research a bit more. Going to take some picts to post this afternoon.
