If you’re interested in learning more about the 1963 Alfa Romeo 2600 Spider, you’ve come to the right place. The Alfa Romeo 2600 was introduced at the 1962 Geneva Motor Show as Alfa Romeo’s flagship six-cylinder. It would be available in several body styles, including a Berlina Sedan with a factory-built body, a 2+2 Spider Convertible with a body by Touring, and a Sprint Coupe with a body by Bertone. In total, the Sprint Coupe would see the most production (with nearly 7,000 examples built), while the 2600 Spider would see approximately 2,255 examples produced. Despite acclaim for its excellent engine, which offered 145hp and a top speed of 124mph, sales for the 2600 were not considered very successful during its era. Elevated prices compared to competitors and Alfa Romeo’s Giulia models proved to be the Alfa Romeo 2600’s biggest downfalls. Today, however, the classic Alfa Romeo 2600 Spider is appreciated for its tasteful and elegant styling, for its engine and performance, and ironically for their rarity compared to other Alfa Romeo models.
When buying a 1963 Alfa Romeo 2600 Spider, or any classic Alfa Romeo 2600 model, it is imperative to fully inspect the overall condition of the classic. These mid-1960’s Alfa Romeos are prone to rust damage and, with just 2,255 examples produced, can be quite expensive to fully restore, thanks to limited availability of certain body components. For this reason, it is also important to ensure that you find the most complete and best condition example you can within your budget. For the 2600 Spider models, another important consideration is the condition of the convertible top. Finding an original convertible top is quite rare, as they seem to only last a few years before needing to be replaced or repaired. Many times the soft top itself is fine, but the glass will be torn or clouded. There are places that can replace the window, but that often requires the removal of the top, which is quite difficult to do without damaging it. These are certainly things to consider when buying a classic Alfa Romeo 2600 Spider.
