Six Months Gone: 1973 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce – Sold!

May 2021 | Classifinds, Sports Car Saturday

July 4, 2021 Update – Not only did we confirm the listing for this Alfa “Classifind” expired, but we also noticed in our travels the car is no longer parked in front of the seller’s place of business. Consequently, we’re assuming this ride “Sold?” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call us directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.

May 30, 2021 Update – When we first featured this freshly painted Alfa Romeo at the end of 2020, the private seller asked $24,000. When the seller deleted their listing over the holidays, we assumed the car had sold. Fast forward to mid-May, and we discovered the seller stored the car over the winter before putting it back on the market for $18,000.  We noticed where this car is for sale along the side of the road nearby travels, so we can keep an eye on it that way as well.

We love featuring Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce’s built with color combinations other than the traditional red-over black.  Our latest example is this 1973 Spider 2000 in what appears to be dark blue over wine leather originally listed in December 2020 and then relisted in May 2021 on Craigslist in Lambertville, New Jersey. Featuring a fresh paint job and only 53K original miles, asking the private seller has set a price of $24,000.  While oddly the Collector Car Market Review Online Tool indicates the private seller has their vintage Alfa priced well above this guide’s #1 “Excellent” estimate of $16,000,  the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool as a second data point confirms this private seller has this Alfa priced between the #3 “Good” estimate of $15,400 and the #2 “Excellent” appraisal of $25,700.

This is the seller’s current description is a duplicate of their original description:

“53,000 orig. miles. Just Painted Original Blue. Runs/Handles Great. 5 Speed. Good Pirelli tires. nice top. Fun to drive. No rust or dents. New Driver side seat foam and upholstery. New Door bumpers and Door seal. Rebuilt Clutch Slave Cyl. Rapidly appreciating Classic. NADA High Retail $45,000. Ave Retail $27,800. Call or text.”

    Low mileage is a plus in the sellers favor. Seller could have washed the car, cleaned the wheels and tires before photographing. Something does not look right with the trunk in the third photo. Maybe it’s just the reflection of the house. I’d have chosen a better location to photograph. Quality photographs do enhance the sale of a car. I think Collector Car and Hagerty car values are much more reflective of the actual market than NADA.
