THE ALFA ROMEO DUETTO SPIDER

Late in 1962, Alfa Romeo debuted the Giulietta's ostensible replacement - the Giulia, although production of the Giulietta continued into 1964. The Giulia, initially a Berlina, featured a 1,570cc four rated at 92bhp and a five-speed gearbox. Sprint coupe and Spider convertible models followed, with engines available in several stages of tune. The suspension had been revised and disc brakes were featured all around.

A new Spider was launched in 1966. Designed by Pininfarina, it featured a rounded tail, sometimes called Osso di Seppia - Italian for cuttlefish bone. At launch it had no specific name, but a company contest soon selected the name "Duetto." Pininfarina also manufactured the monocoque body, which was powered by the 1570 Giulia engine. The model gained its greatest fame as a result of being cast in the 1967 Dustin Hoffman film The Graduate. So faithful was its following that Alfa appended this name to the Series II North American version.

In 1967, a 1,750cc engine was introduced. In Europe the new engine was fitted with twin carburetors. In the USA, beginning in 1969, SPICA mechanical fuel injection was used. Officially this model was designated 1750 Spider Veloce, but the Duetto moniker was indelible and stuck. Upgrades were also made to the suspension, brakes, electrics, wheels and tires at this time.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This charming Alfa Romeo Duetto Spider is finished a very attractive cream over a red/black interior - the combination is very complimentary to the elegant Pininfarina design. After admiring the livery, the next thing to catch your eye is the Spider's incredible stance. The car sits just right, hovering over a beautiful set of 5 star Cromodora wheels wrapped in fresh Pirelli rubber. Power is provided by a strong 1,750cc engine, fitted with the desirable SPICA mechanical fuel injection system.

This Duetto Spider is a well sorted example that is sure to offer its next owner years of wonderful top down motoring at an incredible value.
