1959 Alfa Romeo Touring Spider

One Owner From New


The Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider was launched in 1958 using practically the same engine and running gear as the far more ubiquitous Alfa Romeo Berlina Coupe, but with a tuned engine and a spectacular convertible monocoque body designed by the famous coachbuilders, Touring of Milan.

The four cylinder engine had the same displacement as the Berlina, but produced 115bhp at 5,700rpm, as opposed to the coupe’s 105bhp at 5,300rpm.

This was due to the addition of twin carburettors and an improved compression ratio of 8.5:1. This produced a top speed of 109mph, as opposed to the Berlina’s 99mph.

Showing a mere 27,000 miles recorded, and amazingly with the same owner since 1960, this incredible matching numbers survivor was only driven until 1971, and then parked in a dry garage in Texas until being purchased by the current vendor. Described as being in good condition in all respects, this lovely straight example is supplied complete with the original tools and jack, manual, also a US title document.

In summary, a unique opportunity to acquire a one-owner car for preservation or full restoration.

Mit nur 27.000 Meilen gefahren, und erstaunlicherweise seit 1960 beim selben Eigentümer, wurde dieser unglaubliche Wagen mit übereinstimmenden Nummern nur bis 1971 gefahren, und hat dann in einer trockenen Garage in Texas gestanden, bis er durch den aktuellen Verkäufer erworben wurde. Beschrieben in gutem Zustand rundum, wird dieses schöne Stück mit original Werkzeugen, Wagenheber, Handbuch, und einem US-Titeldokument übergeben.
Zusammenfassend ist dies eine einzigartige Gelegenheit ein Ein-Eigentümer-Auto zur Haltung oder Restaurierung zu erwerben.
