A desirable Alfa Romeo 2-litre Kammtail Spider and surely also very rare in Ivory paint and burgundy trim!

XGB is a well-maintained Alfa Spider with very good bodywork. Following a thorough check in our bodyshop, we carried out one small welding repair to the underside; she is waxoyl –protected. Back in the workshop and freshly serviced, she is a delight to drive! Strong on the road with nice direct steering, smooth/slick gearchange (no synchro problems), excellent brakes, good oil pressure and low/normal water temperature. Everything works and she is freshly MoT tested.

The interior, in burgundy, is in very good condition with new door cards, very good seats (seatbelts are fitted), an unusually good, crack-free dash, and black carpet. The hood has just been re-coloured and rain protected with Renovo and the original-style hood bag is present. The boot is carpeted (the original cover remains underneath) and fitted with the spare wheel, original AR jack and wheel brace and a touring spares kit. The original steel wheels and centre finishers remain available with the car, so too the original/standard exhaust tail-pipe (sports rear section presently fitted). In summary, if you are looking for a stylish yet practical convertible then the 2-litre Spider is an excellent choice.

This car’s Ivory paint with burgundy trim ensure it stands out from the usual Rosso-red cars! Upgraded with a sports exhaust, the smart Cromodora alloys and fully serviced, this is a Spider to drive away and enjoy and the extensive history file simply completes the package!
