The 105 Series Alfa Romeo Spider is one of the most plentiful Italian classics available in the US and a good starting point for those new to the Italian car game. The Spiders produced in the late 1970s and 1980s can get a bit overlooked, due to the popularity of the original Duetto and the refined, final edition Series 4. This Spider for sale in Louisiana caught my attention, as it has relatively low mileage and looks clean and crisp in this shade of silver blue with Panasport style wheels.
This car is the archetype of the classic sexy Italian roadster! A "Wednesday Alfa," the vehicle has absolutely no rust and has had zero serious mechanical or electrical issues. I am only it's second owner and it as been impeccably maintained, restored, and enhanced to achieve superb daily drivability that is unlike any other Spider. This includes:
-New front and rear suspension
-Chassis stiffening system
-New cool air intake
-New exhaust system from manifolds to tail pipe
-New brakes x 4 and master cylinder
-New 90A alternator
-New water pump
-New valve cover gasket
-New Lights/Turn signal/Wiper switch
-New ignition switch
-New 15" Rota panasport alloy wheels
-New Yokahama tires
-New plugs and certified Alfa wires

While the Series 4 Spiders are a bit more reliable with their Bosch engine management, the Series 3 Spiders can offer a bit more bang for the buck. A lot of work has been done to this particular car and in light of that, the car is priced well within reason. For someone looking for a plug and play Alfa Spider, this car would be a good candidate.
