1987 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce

A beautiful example with perfect floors/chassis (as in 'no rust at all), beautiful bodywork and paint, very clean saddle colored interior, new black top, on and on.
I own a new identical car so my assessment was based on my own experiences.....oil pressure was 60-65 psi at operating temps (same as my rebuilt engine), valves quiet (owner told me he had a top end overhaul in 2015 when purchased), zero smoke, didn't do a compression test but equally fast as my own car AND never beat the gearbox synchros in 2nd gear (a common Alfa malady). Everything worked as I would expect from a very good example. And yes, all of the gauges work properly.
Has a/c but not currently working (we are going to check the charge), checked power windows and mirrors (all work), trunk and engine bays are very clean, nice alloy wheels, missing a stereo (we just stuck one in for photos....and yes, for very little money we can install any stereo a buyer wishes), what else to add? Starts instantly, not the slightest puff of smoke, runs and drives very well, and an attractive and interesting color combination,
