Although having been dry stored, in a garage, for over 10 years, the car has suffered from the ever changing Scottish temperatures. The body has unfortunately deteriorated heavily over the years and will require a considerable amount of attention.
On the positive side, the hood has been down ever since the car was put away but has survived the test of time and is superb condition.
We are looking at this being a big project with a full strip down restoration needed.
After 14 years being tucked up in a garage in Shieldaig, Scotland, our 1981 Alfa Romeo Spider has once again seen the daylight. We have spent the morning freeing her up and getting ready for the long trip down to Suffolk.

Having stopped up here over night we are sad to be saying goodbye to this stunning setting but we can’t wait to get our Alfa back into our workshops for a full inspection and assessment.
Today, we are in the highlands of Scotland on a trip to see a 1981 Alfa Romeo Spider.
We are in the stunning setting of the Tigh An Eilean Hotel where we believe the car has been dry stored for over 15 years.
