Footnotes

  • A modern classic by Pininfarina, the simple yet elegant spider bodywork premiered on the 1966 Duetto would prove enduringly popular after a rather critical initial reception, lasting well into the 1990s. Under the skin, the Duetto's mechanicals were essentially those of the 105-Series Giulia saloon, featuring independent front suspension, a coil-suspended live rear axle and four-wheel disc brakes. The power unit was the 1.6-litre, 109bhp version of Alfa's classic double-overhead-camshaft four as installed in the Giulia Sprint GTV. Performance fully matched the Duetto's stunning looks, with 60mph reachable in around 11 seconds and a top speed of 116mph. 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after starring alongside Dustin Hoffman in the film, The Graduate but was produced for only two years before being superseded by the 1.8-litre '1750' Spyder Veloce in 1967. A year later, 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). The following year the Spider 1300 Junior was joined by the 1600 version, the only difference between the two being the latter's 1.6-litre engine, as used in the original Duetto.

    This Spider 1600 Junior is finished in bronze metallic with beige vinyl interior, a particularly attractive and unusual colour combination that makes a nice change from the more common red. Delivered new to Rome and subsequently registered in the Viterbo province some 80 kilometres north of the Italian capital, it has had three registered owners from new and is presented in generally very good condition. The car is offered with Italian registration papers (Libretto and Certificato di Proprieta).
