1968 Alfa Romeo Duetto Spider 1600 

The vendor has kindly provided the following:

Pininfarina designed the original Series 1 Alfa Spider 1600 commonly known as the Duetto and Alfa Romeo manufactured these cars from 1966 to 1969. In the US cars are referred to as Round-tails or Boat-tails. In Europe many countries said "Osso di Seppia" which means "cuttle-fish-bone". The car featured as the star of the 1967 film “The Graduate”, alongside Dustin Hoffman, Katharine Ross and Anne Bankroft. There were future versions of the Spider (105/115) produced up until the Series 4 which ended production in 1993.

This RHD car is one of 279 right hand versions of the 1st series of Alfa Spiders.  Confirmed by the factory to have been delivered to Johannesburg, South Africa in 1968, body colour in white with black saki interior. 

The vehicle has confirmed matching engine and chassis number.  Imported into the UK in 1996, this Spider is thought to be a very original model and has had a careful back to bare metal restoration and a precise and complete mechanical rebuild in 2014/15 (documented)

The vehicle benefits from :

  • Gas flowed and rebuilt unleaded head
  • Completely rebuilt engine and ancillaries with under 6,000 miles use
  • Updated electronic ignition and modern dynamo and starter motor
  • Brand new clutch
  • No hidden rot - all necessary panel work replaced and repaired.  Fully Wax oiled and rust protected
  • Original MOMO alloys
