Footnotes

  • A modern classic by Pininfarina, the simple yet elegant spider bodywork premiered on the 1966 1.6-litre Duetto would prove enduringly popular after a rather critical initial reception, lasting well into the 1990s. The model achieved worldwide public recognition after starring alongside Dustin Hoffman in the film, The Graduate but was produced for only two years before being superseded by the 1.8-litre '1750' Spyder Veloce in 1967. At the same time, Alfa Romeo took the opportunity to offer a version of the Spider powered by the 1.3-litre Giulietta engine: the 1300 Junior. Cheaper than the larger Spider yet only some 7mph slower, the 1300 Junior came with an 89bhp engine offering superior fuel economy and occupied a more favourable taxation category, thus extending the possibility of Alfa Romeo ownership to a wider market. In 1971 the Spider was restyled, gaining a squared-off 'Kamm' tail, a move that coincided with introduction of the 2.0-litre '2000' model. These later cars are known by the sobriquet 'coda tronca' (literally: truncated tail), the earlier version being the 'coda tonda' (round tail).

    Dating from the final year of production, this Italian registered Spider 1300 Junior was restored approximately four years ago in its native Italy and since the rebuild's completion has formed part of the vendor's private collection. The car is finished in white with brown vinyl interior and is described by the vendor as in generally very good condition.
