1969 Alfa Romeo Spider Duetto
This 2 owner car has an interesting history. It started it's life in Southern California. First owner was a woman, ho sold the car to the second owner in the early 80's. He drove the car daily until around 1986 and kept meticulous records. Car was last registered in CA in 1986. In the early '90 the owner relocated to Seattle area, rought the car along and continued keeping it garaged. Fast forward 20+ years, e sold the car to me. The car was still completely original, ust and damage free and unmolested. It wasn't a cheap buy.
During the last 2 years the carunderwent comprehensive cosmetic restoration with fine attention to detail. The body iscompletely straight, ree of rust, hips, cratches, tc. refinished in correct original Rossa Corsa red. In some of the pictures reflections of the cloudy sky make the paint look imperfect, o I tried to take many pictures at different angles for a better view. Please see 80 pictures below. Interior is new, xcept rubber matting, hich is all original and in good condition. All exterior stainless trim and badgingare original and in very good condition. Correct Cibie headlights and Carello headlight covers. New convertible top is high end canvas with padded quarters. Rare originalDuetto hardtop is included in the sale. It is black in color and is in good condition, utcould usenew seals.
Mechanically the car is very sound. Low mileage original engine is great, t starts right up every time, ounds wonderful, oesn' leak any oil and has clean exhaust. Compression is 180PSI all across. Clutch is strong. Transmission shifts like new. Tires are correct skinny type, hich aren't easyto find these days, ut are worth the effort, s they preserve the wonderful originallook and feel of the car.All 4 tires are new. Spare in the trunk is the original Michelin. Brakes are rebuilt. Suspension is mostly original, xcept Koni shocks have been fitted.
The Duettobody style with the desirable 1750 engine with fuel injection was sold only for one year: 1969. I don't think they sold many of them. This vintage toywill be a sound investment.
