Lot details

Registration No: H830 BFM
Chassis No: ZAR11500006012718
MOT: May 2023

  • Desirable right-hand drive example finished in the rare combination of Metallic Silver with contrasting Tan interior
  • Previously owned by a mechanic who self-maintained the car, with this year’s MOT having no advisories
  • Accompanied with a history file including a small collection of previous invoices and MOTs, a workshop manual and V5C document

Following lengthy delays, the eagerly awaited Alfa Spider was launched at the 1966 Geneva Salon. It is said to have been the last project with which `Pinin Farina’ was personally associated and, just one year later, was immortalised by the Dustin Hoffman film `The Graduate'. The Series 4 version was launched in 1990 and employed the same basic body style, mechanicals and chassis of the original version, but with improved styling over the 1980s models; including colour-coded bumpers and a more luxurious interior. The redesign and manufacture were entrusted to Pininfarina and, while all examples left the factory in LHD form, many (including this car) were imported to the UK and professionally converted to RHD.

As mentioned above, this particular Alfa Romeo Spider was converted to right-hand drive by the supplying dealer when new, and is finished in the rare and appealing combination of Metallic Silver with a contrasting Beige vinyl/Alcantara interior featuring Black dashboard, door card trims and correct wooden steering wheel. Still retaining its original stickers and plaque under the bonnet and boot, ‘H830 BFM’ was purchased by the current owner in March of this year. The vendor, a largely Rolls-Royce and Bentley collector, has decided he would like to stick to bigger cars and with the recent purchase of another addition has decided it is time for this lovely Alfa to find a new home. Now showing 137,880km (equating to c.85,675 miles), this lovely low mileage example has been recently subject to the interior being re-upholstered, has recently be serviced and is ready to be enjoyed.

The MOT valid until 31st May 2023 with no advisories is unsurprising, considering the previous long term owner was a mechanic. Included with the vehicle is also a small collection of previous MOTs and invoices, as well as a reproduction workshop manual and the current V5C document which displays 7 former keepers. The vendor notes the excellent condition of the bodywork, with it being said to be very good indeed.
