I've made the hard decision to sell my 1986 Spider Veloce. 84,668 original miles, very clean condition, tan leather/black interior, brilliant, deep Alfa red.

I'm the 2nd owner, the auto was bought new in Seattle, always garaged, never damaged, and have every receipt and record of maintenance. Serviced by the top Alfa mechanics in the Seattle/Tacoma area since new. Brand new cloth top installed 2008, the car runs like a champ, dependable, zippy and really fun!

Any advice about pricing is appreciated - not too low, not too high. How should I price this beauty as I seek it's new home?

You might check recent Ebay transactions.

I sold my 86 Quad about 6 months ago for $6,000. Brand new high quality paint, new leather seat covers, new red Koni shocks, new tires, battery, water pump, speakers, injectors, fuel pumps, etc. It looked and ran great. It had 118,000 miles. Although I didn't get many receipts from the previous owner, what I got showed it receiving very good maintenance through 1995 when it was garaged. I was a bit sad that it received only one bid during the auction, but the economy hasn't been all that wonderful. Unfortunately, right now may be even scarier for people than it was when I marketed my car.

I've seen a lot of Alfas with a high reserve attract no bids at all. My suggestion is to figure out if you really want to sell it, and if so, put a starting bid around $6,000 and cross your fingers.
