1962 Alfa Romeo 2000
Description Jump to top
In the post-war period, Alfa’s racing success led to the introduction of a new generation of road cars in 1952: the 1900 series, featuring a thoroughly modern, two-liter, DOHC power plant. Although the drive train remained unchanged, an updated model called the 2000 appeared in 1958. The Berlinas (sedans) carried factory coachwork, but the Spider was designed and built by Carrozzeria Touring in Milan. The 2000 is highly regarded for its smooth, relaxed ride, and it is a confident high-speed cruiser sporting classic Italian styling. This particular 1962 2000 is finished in Farina red with elegant Red and black leather hides, a tan cloth soft top, and interior matching leather tonneau cover. Everything in this car, including the engine, is nicely detailed and well finished. The underside of the car has been undercoated but is very solid overall. The frame shows no rot and the floors and trunk are also solid. The wheels are wrapped with newer 165 R400 radials that have good tread life left on them. The trunk is finished in the matching carpet as the interior is and looks very good. A battery shut off has been added. There is a spare tire in the trunk which looks great. This is a fantastic little Alfa Spider that is rarely seen, and even more rarely up for sale. We have driven this car around 50 miles so far with no problems and this car is a blast to drive. The car will be a welcome addition to any collection or at the next European show. The car’s current mileage shows 52,338 and the VIN number is AR1020402879.
The paint on the car looks stunning and shows no major imperfections to the body. The Farina red paint is finished in a high quality base coat, clear coat that appears to be fairly new. All the trim pieces look great as well as the front grill, chrome bumpers and overriders. All the glass looks great with no cracking or chips. The tan soft top with plastic rear window goes up and down with little effort and looks great. It appears as if it was newer.
The interior is finished in a beautiful high quality red and black leather that looks and smells great. The door panels, seats and tonneau cover are all finished in the same matching leather. All of which are in near perfect condition with no major imperfections to be found. The carpet looks very good with no major wear to be found. All gauges are in good working order as are the wipers, lights, signals and horn. The AM radio is currently inoperable. The dash has been painted the same color of the body and looks great with no scratches or imperfections.
Under the hood, the dual overhead cam 4 cylinder runs great. The motor is fed through twin Solex carbs which have been recently tuned and perform with no problems. The car starts right up with a turn of the key with no chocking. There are headers that go into a single pipe exhaust system that sounds great. The motor is nicely detailed and very clean. No major spots of dirt or grease built up anywhere.
