Description

Debuted at Geneva in 1962, Alfa Romeo’s 2600 was the storied Italian marque’s flagship model line through 1967. It was available in three body styles: a four-door Berlina with factory bodywork, a Bertone-bodied coupe called the Sprint, and a 2+2 Spider featuring Superleggera (Super light) coachwork by Touring. Delivering a wonderful blend of characteristically Italian design and spirited driving dynamics, the Spider is quite rare, with only 2,255 examples built.

This very well-preserved 1963 Alfa Romeo 2600 Spider was acquired by the consignor six years ago and relocated to Houston, Texas. Showing just 30,451 miles, this 2600 Spider remains in highly original condition with a well-preserved and nicely detailed interior, original Sekurit-etched glass, and an uncommonly original engine compartment retaining the original Solex carburetors, clamps, hoses, factory markings, and brush marks throughout. Never restored or dismantled, the Spider’s body remains straight with excellent gaps and shut lines. The underside was detailed with dry ice, revealing the vehicle’s solid structure. The original factory undercoating is intact and, importantly, the jack points are straight and solid. The original stowaway foam remains in place on the convertible top, and the car’s original decals and tags remain intact, as do mementos from the 1966 Watkins Glen Grand Prix. While currently not running after nearly 40 years in storage, this handsome and very rare Italian convertible will provide a potentially ideal entry for sympathetic mechanical recommissioning and new life as a preservation-class concours entry or classic rally car.
