Hermosa Beach is the city where this car spent most of its life: indeed this 2000 Spider (chassis 102.04.00358) looks very dry and preserved. It is said that its last run was in 1977.
Of course 55 years are not few for whatever car, so now this elegant spider needs a total restoration; however there are many pros on this car which looks solid, complete and moreover it’s equipped with the original hardtop, much rarer than the units often installed on its little sister, the Giulietta.
We haven’t seen this car in flesh but something tells us that the future owner could also consider the “conservative” approach: fixing all the necessary mechanical parts and leave the body as is, maybe just spraying the hardtop.
