" Weber carburetor upgrade " La Dolce Vita style " Recently freshened and serviced
This Alfa Romeo 2600 Spider is presented in a very elegant and refined triple dark blue color scheme. Restored some years ago by Hyannis Restoration, then used sparingly, it has benefitted from a recent cosmetic freshening. This has included a re-spray in the original color, and the bright trim is reported to be in excellent condition. Inside, the dark blue leather interior appears to show almost no wear, with nicely broken-in seats and a period Becker radio in the dashboard. To complete the presentation, a new correct canvas soft top has been installed.
Mechanically this 2600 Spider has been given an upgrade from the stock Solex carburetors to Weber units. Should the successful bidder desire to return the car to original specification, the Solex carburetors will be supplied with the car. In addition, the Alfa has received a new stainless steel exhaust system, brake work, a thorough electrical check and a complete tune-up service.
It should be noted that this delightful Alfa Romeo's sale will benefit charity. Hammer proceeds will be donated to The National Road Safety Foundation, Inc. (NRSF). This is a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing crashes, death and disability on our nation's roads by promoting safe driving behavior through greater public awareness. For further details about the NRSF's mission, please visit the website www.nrsf.org.
The 2600 takes the driver back to the great grand touring Alfas of the prewar period. The next owner of this marvelous Alfa will be able to take dual pleasures from this fascinating car, enjoying both miles behind the wheel of a stylish Alfa as well as the privilege of supporting a very worthwhile cause.
