If youre looking for information on the 1959 Alfa Romeo 2000, youve come to the right place. The Alfa Romeo 2000 range was available as a Spider Convertible, a Sprint Coupe 2+2, and a Berlina Sedan. Debuted as the successor to the Alfa Romeo 1900 in 1958, the Alfa Romeo 2000 was named for its displacement, offering a 1,975cc four-cylinder engine compared to the 1900s 1,884cc unit. Alfa Romeo would later produce a more modern, all-aluminum 2.0L engine. Thus the engine used in the 1958 to 1962 2000 cars is now commonly referred to as the cast-iron 2-liter or the old 2-liter. In addition to the upgraded displacement, the cast-iron 2-liter also featured a more modern valve train than the previous 1900 models. The valves were now actuated through a bucket and tappet system that allowed some of the weight to be shed from the 1900s clumsier design. Power output was 105hp for the Sedan and 115hp for the Coupe and Convertible models. During the era, this was a good amount of power coming from a small engine, yet the large bodies of the 2000 series often proved to be too heavy for the engines. Performance was adequate, but not as sporty as the cars Alfa Romeo was directly competing with at the time. The Berlina would be styled in-house by Alfa Romeo, while the Spider Convertible would be designed by Touring and the Sprint Coupe by Bertone.
When buying a 1959 Alfa Romeo 2000, youll find that the Spider Convertible models are often the most sought-after. Styled by Touring, a design house that had a rich history of creating timeless Alfa Romeo models, the Spiders appearance was conservative, yet quite handsome. It boasted a traditional upside-down triangle grille that poked down beneath a split front bumper, which made it immediately recognizable. Twin hood scoops and decorative vents along the bottoms of the front fenders added to the appeal. While approximately 7,089 of the 2000 models were manufactured, 3,443 of the Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider Convertibles accounted for more than half of production. When buying a classic Alfa Romeo 2000 whether a Berlina, Sprint or Spider always ensure youre dealing with a model that is as original as possible. Furthermore, purchasing the best example you can within your budget will save you thousands of dollars in restoration costs.
