Lot 208: 1963 Alfa Romeo 2600 Touring Spider Restoration project

Auto Moto D'Epoca, Coys (27 October 2007)

Launched in 1962, the Alfa Romeo 2600 Spyder represented a return for the marque to the high class, luxury six cylinder cars which in the past had proved so successful. Its chief rivals were the Maserati 3500 GT Spyder and Lancia Flaminia Convertible, both similar in appearance and performance. The Alfa's twin-camshaft engine developed a respectable 145bhp at an unstressed 5,900rpm, fed by three twin-choke side-draught carburettors, with power transmitted through a five-speed gearbox to give the car an impressive 125mph top speed. The sophisticated mechanical specification was matched by a luxurious and well-appointed interior, making the car an ideal choice for long distance high speed open touring. Having been stored in a Californian barn for almost 25 years, this wonderful restoration project was imported to Europe some two years ago and comes with paid customs documents and other paperwork. Being described by the vendor as a very good basis for a straightforward restoration, the car is fitted with the very rare extra of a hard top with a sliding roof - indeed a very rare item. Some body panels come with this complete and rolling chassis car.Essendo questo esemplare stato custodito in una rimessa in California per quasi 25 anni e importato in Europa un paio d'anni fa, viene descritto dal proprietario come un'eccellente base per un restauro complessivo. Dotata del raro hard top con tettuccio scorrevole, viene fornita insieme ad alcuni pannelli della scocca. Un pezzo veramente raro.
