RetroMarques is pleased to offer for sale on behalf of the owner: Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider Veloce ‘VYO 948S’...

A really nice Alfa Spider in the unusual Verde Inglese (English Green) 219. First registered in 1978 she was initially purchased by the Quad Acoustical Co (the British hi-fi company) for its then owner Peter Walker. Mr Walker left the company on retirement in 1988 and the Spider went with him, remaining in his ownership for another 11 years until 1999. Only 4 owners followed before purchase by a local AROC member and then cared for by us before being sold to a local classic car enthusiast in 2017.


  • Build; 27 December 1976, sold in the UK on 29 December 1977
  • First registered: 2 June 1978
  • Chassis no: 2472884
  • Eng No: AR00515/95469

Work carried out:

  • Full Alfaholics stainless exhaust system
  • Rebound straps and box sections
  • New steering box
  • Refurbished seats
  • New hood
  • New front bumper and Carello light covers
  • Cylinder head rebuild and timing chain replacement, new (alloy) carb mounts
  • Pertronix electronic ignition, new fuel pump
  • New door mirrors, door handles/locks & check straps
  • Speedo overhaul and calibration
  • Rolling road tune
  • New Pioneer stereo/CD/Bluetooth, new wind deflector

As can be seen from the history file, a really well-maintained Spider which has systematically been improved in recent ownership. The drive is testament to that care. She starts easily with very good oil pressure and low/normal water temperature. Brisk on the road with nice positive steering, lovely smooth gearbox with no synchro problems and strong brakes – just as a good Spider should be!

‘VYO’ will be MOT’d on purchase and is showing a mileage of 53,075, indeed it is believed this may be original. A good history file accompanies the car and includes the original Instruction Book.

In summary, a Kammtail which is attractive yet rare in English Green paint with original Cromodoro Turbino wheels and a car which has been both improved and well-maintained in recent ownership. A joy to drive yet practical too with a hood that works and a good-sized boot for touring; these Alfa Romeos are in demand and values are rising accordingly. ‘VYO’ offers an opportunity to purchase a very nice Spider with much spent already and very little or nothing to do!

Price: SOLD
