This Alfa Romeo 2600 Spider is presented in a very elegant and refined triple dark blue color scheme. Restored some years ago by Hyannis Restoration, then used sparingly, it has benefitted from a recent cosmetic freshening. This has included a re-spray in the original color, and the bright trim is reported to be in excellent condition. Inside, the dark blue leather interior appears to show almost no wear, with nicely broken-in seats and a period Becker radio in the dashboard. To complete the presentation, a new correct canvas soft top has been installed.
