Hello,
Since you have decided to take a look at this 1979 Alfa Romeo Spider, you're already aware of the fact that the market for Classic Alfa Romeo's is moving north at a very rapid pace, and you also know that this trend is going to continue, for a very long time.
In terms of basic physics, the "Power to Weight Ratio" of a car is the single most important (performance) factor.
Pertaining to Alfa Romeo Spiders, the Series 2 has the best "Power to Weight Ratio" because it has a bigger engine (2 Liter) than the Series 1, and weighs less than the Series 3 & 4, considering the fact that subsequent Spider models were designed with a lot more of the "power comforts" to suit the average consumer, and were heavier as a result.
The Series 2 Spiders that were manufactured from 1970 to 1979 are basically all the same, with the exception of the bumpers, smog requirements, rear mounted battery, and upgraded door panels. Personally, I think the 1979 model has the best looking door panels, of all the Series 2 Spiders. Also, I think the overall look of the interior in the Series 2 Spiders (70 to 79) really captures the "Classic Italian" style and feel of that era.

I'm placing this ad because I have some urgent financial priorities, and my loss could be your gain.
Keep in mind that this Spider is "RUST-FREE" for the most part, which makes it very attractive, as well as very hard to find elsewhere.
I bought this Spider from a guy in California, who owned it for 15 years, and is now retired. Basically, he told me that he just doesn't drive it anymore. When I asked about the reason for the "salvage" title, he said that the car was hit in the rear. However, when I took a good look around the back of the car, I couldn't find any evidence of previous damage at all. Obviously, the Body Shop did an excellent job on the repair!
The color of the car is really fantastic. However, the "clear coat" has faded away. This Spider has been sitting for 2 years, and he assured me that it was running fine before he parked it.
Obviously, considering the fact that this Spider was "road worthy" before it was parked (2 years ago) it would be very safe to assume that it could easily be "road worthy" again, with a very minimal effort.

For whatever its worth, when I bought this Spider, I was planning to keep it for myself, for these 2 reasons:
First, since you cannot tell that there was any previous damage to the car, I would be the only person who ever knew that it had a "salvage" title. Again, you cannot find any evidence of previous damage at all!
Second, this Spider only needs the typical replacement items that are the result of age (carpet set, seat covers, convertible top) in order for it to be a very "presentable" Classic Alfa.
However, as I mentioned earlier, I have some urgent financial priorities, and my loss could be your gain...

Have a Great Day!
Regards,Tom
