Description

The Spider first broke cover at the 1961 Turin Motorshow, though production did not commence until 1966. The pretty two-seater Roadster, then known as the ‘Duetto’, is said to have been the last project with which ‘Pinin’ Farina was per- sonally associated, and it was his company that produced the monocoque body

at its plant in Grugliasco. Just one year later the model was immortalised by the Dustin Hoffman film ‘The Graduate’. The chassis was based on that of the Giulia 105 and the Series One examples were powered by a 1570cc version of Alfa’s sonorous four-cylinder twin-cam unit. In 1967, the Duetto was replaced by the 1750 (1779cc) Spider Veloce. Though the new version’s looks were relatively un- changed, useful upgrades were made to the suspension, brakes, electrics, wheels and tyres.

This supremely stylish 1969 Spider is fitted with the more powerful fuel injected 1750cc motor (a rare and desirable option), and finished in the classic colour scheme of Rosso with a Tan interior.

Cosmetically this example is very sharp; the paint, chrome, interior and soft top are all presented in beautiful condition. Fitted with the 1750cc injected engine and the 5-speed gearbox, and with a low weight, this is a very nice sporty car which will make the perfect partner for the summer months. The Duetto is of- fered with a US title and European taxes paid.
