We regularly come across Alfa Romeo Spiders in all sorts of conditions.  For reasons unclear to us, we rarely come across low-mileage, two-owner examples such as this 1976 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce originally listed in May 2022 on Craigslist in Knoxville, Tennesee. The seller reports that in addition to a brand new top, this Alfa has been thoroughly sorted during their one year of possession after buying it from the original owner.  Currently offered for $15,000, Classic.com, the analytics and search engine for the collector car market, confirms the ask is right in line with this guide’s one-year results summary:

As a second data point, the  Collector Car Market Review Online Tool reveals the seller’s ask falls between this guide’s #2 Very Good” estimate of $10,700 and its #1 “Excellent” appraisal of $17,500.

Four model years after launching its original Series 1 Spider Veloce, Alfa Romeo launched the Series II in 1970 by revising the original car’s distinctive elongated round tail with a more conventional-for-the-period Kamm tail to improve luggage space.  Numerous other small changes took place both inside and out, such as a slightly different grille, new door handles, a more raked windscreen, top-hinged pedals, and improved interior trim.  Series II cars also came with a larger 1,962 cc, inline four-cylinder engine, so Alfa Romeo called these editions the 2000 Spider Veloce.  Alfa Spiders remained relatively unchanged, save for interior and color choices, through the 1982 model year.
