1962 Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider This 1962 was one of the last 2000’s built with a minor change of the two functional hood scoops. Luckily Alfa did not change the split front bumper configuration that gives the car a great look. In addition, side vent windows were not added to the interim model change. These last cars were built in 1961, however were titled as 1962 models when sold. This particular California car is truly rust free top to bottom as the pictures show. The five speed transmission is mated to the very reliable and strong 2000 liter 4 cylinder motor for wonderful highway cruising. It drives and shifts perfectly through all 5 gears. Alfa Romeo designed the 2000 for just that purpose, as it was heavier than the smaller Giulia models. Finished in Alfa red with red and black leather interior, it makes a great statement. Seat belts have been added front and rear (for the little ones). These Alfas are skyrocketing in value and are excellent investment grade sports cars. In fact, when you look at the body, one thinks of the Maserati 3500 –which is valued at over 3 times the price of the Alfa.

1959 CADILLAC SERIES 62 CONVERTIBLE Finished in factory-correct Brenton Blue with its original black and white leather interior and newer white top, this 1959 Cadillac Series 62 convertible matches all of the codes on the data plate. The original leather is in amazing subtle condition. The Cadillac is equipped with a rare working factory air conditioning system as well. In addition, it is equipped with power steering, power brakes, power windows, power seat, power top and factory radio. The professional repaint is exceptional and the body is incredibly straight and smooth. The frame, undercarriage and original floors are totally rust free. A totally new exhaust system was installed several years ago. Even the massive grille and chrome bumpers, etc. have been re-chromed to a very high quality finish and are show ready. This car is a joy to drive!. It is obvious that this Cadillac has been cared for very well and it shows in every way.
