Supplied by Casino Garage S.A.R.L, Beausoleil in the French hills above Monte Carlo, to this day, Casino Garage continue to supply Alfa Romeo to the great and good of the Cote d’Azur and Monaco.
This is as it was, no less, for our Series 4, 2.0 Litre Spider offered here. Owned by one Mr Peter Morris, an Australian, resident in glorious Antibes, he was to keep and cherish his Alfa in and around Alpes Maritimes until eventually passing to only its second owner in the UK in 2015.
Since this time our car has been the subject of considerable restorative works including a full repaint in Silver to a high standard. Further, the interior has been completely re-trimmed in Blue Scottish Squares cloth to the seats and door cards – reminiscent of a mid-1950’s Mercedes’ Gullwing – a full set of replacement carpets have been fitted, and a high-quality Black mohair roof supplied by ClassicAlfa. In all, more than £11,000 has been invested for us to offer this car in this condition today.
Mechanically, the service book shows that the car was maintained well in its early days in France with mileage recorded at 76,000 kms in 2003. Less used in recent years, the mileage still only stands at a very modest 89,000 kms, but the engine is still very sweet and responsive, with just enough growl to remind the driver of the relative potency under his or her right foot. This car is currently MOT’d to June 2018, awarded fewer than 100 kms ago.
Our charming Alfa Spider also benefits from being offered with full book pack and documents wallet containing all related handbooks, service book, and even the guarantee and business card of the salesperson who handled the sale to Mr Morris in 1992….
