The Spider Veloce

A modern classic by Pininfarina, the simple-yet-elegant Spider bodywork premiered on the 1966 Alfa Romeo Duetto would prove enduringly popular, lasting on into the 1990s. The Spider's mechanicals were essentially those of the Giulia saloon, comprising independent front suspension, coil-suspended live rear axle and four-wheel servo-assisted disc brakes while the engine was the Sprint GTV's 1.6-liter, double-overhead-camshaft four. The Duetto was produced for just two years before being superseded by the 1.8-liter '1750' Spider Veloce, the latter lasting until the advent of the 132bhp 2000 model in 1970. Wind tunnel testing resulted in the 2000 and final 1750 models sporting a drag-reducing Kamm tail while other improvements included bigger brakes and a limited-slip differential. Outstanding speed, acceleration and handling were all characteristics of this class-leading model, which nevertheless possessed a quite remarkable docility, even at high speeds.

The Motorcar Offered

This Series 4 Alfa Spider is among the final iteration of the Spider to be imported into the United States. Finished in the rare and desirable color combination of Vino Rosso over tan leather with a black top, it is a Georgian car from new that has spent the last few years in the Boston area only driven in the summer, enjoyed garaged comfort for all of the winter months and has been meticulous maintained throughout the rest of the year. Kept as factory original as possible, the only deviations from stock are the elegant wood shift knob and a high performance stainless steel exhaust system with a throatier roar.

The level of care of which this Alfa has been the recipient is apparent in its original paint, soft leather, and over all finish. Taken to Alfa-marque specialist Accel Automotive and Glynn Motors, recent service work includes a transmission rebuild, new rear springs, suspension bushings, tires, motor mounts, Stay-Fast top and rear window, as well as speedometer and tachometer restoration.

Reported to be a strong runner with its power features in working order, it shows fewer than 56,000 pampered miles on the odometer. The perfect car in which to meet Mrs. Robinson.
