My August 1996 Ph 1 Spider, had it for a couple of months now and it's slightly less complete than these photos at the moment.
Bought it (delivered) for about the price of a tyre for my 159 so as you can imagine the pictures are somewhat flattering. It had been left for a couple of years with one of the South Coast specialists (star of Wheeler Dealers) and to cut a long story short he wanted the space and I wanted a project to replace my Fiat Coupe 20V VIS which was starting to prove really troublesome with parts availability. I'm intending to do a full restoration on this, no rush so if I can finish it in a couple of years I'll be happy to be honest.
It has been clearly unloved for many years, has had a multitude of owners and has absolutely no paperwork but did have a key!! Bodywork is slightly better than I had hoped for with intact floor pans and only one obvious hole so far, found the main culprit for the water inside (poorly fitting windscreen scuttle) so it's drying out nicely. Interior and carpets are fully removed and cleaned up really well.
Currently sorting the rear suspension out and literally just finished removing the rear subframe, the rear looked as if it had been dipped in the sea for a couple of years but came apart without too many dramas. All bushes are original (and shot), got some significant scoring on the subframe in the usual place so will need to get that tigged up. Will Powerflex everything once I've got it back from being blasted but may try the Alfa Workshop spring pan bushes, any advice?
Basically if it could be worn out it is on this car but thought it worth saving, went in to this with my eyes open and am under no illusions it will be a money pit. Hopefully I'll be parked up in the Alfa section at Autoitalia Italian Car Day at Brooklands 2018, we'll see
