1967 Alfa Romeo OtherSelling a beautiful 1967 Alfa Romeo Duetto Spider 1600. This is more than a car, t is a work of art. The Italians were visionaries. Attractive lines, xcellent power, peed and handling; aggressive driving experience, et comfortable for the driver and passenger. Among all, his car embodies pure class. After owning and driving many different European sports cars, have found it is an absolute joy driving an Alfa, ut driving a Duetto, r Boat tail (as called here, KA Osso di seppia on the other side of the pong...) is an exhilarating experience.I recently purchased the car from the estate of an Alfa Romeo collector, ho not only had about 7 or 8 alfas, ncluding a '59 & '60 Giulietta, hich he raced. In fact he was also a racing instructor at a local racing school in Massachusetts. I believe that this car only had three owners, nd this car appears to be 100 % correct, ith the exception of an aftermarket radio. I believe it is a Rosso Alfa car, o color changes, riginal 1600 engine with twin Webers 40s, ll correct. I believe that the car has only been painted one time.

We picked up this classic this summer and had the following done to refresh it. Repair vacuum port for brake boost, s it was leaking air. The manifold gaskets were old and leaking fuel, hus manifolds were removed and new gaskets were installed. Carb was found to be leaking some fuel, hus the carbs tops were removed and adjusted. Idling was adjusted. The electrical was gone over, ll headlights are working, ll turn signals are works, ark lights and brake lights are all working Brand new interstate battery installed with new leads and connections ( $125.00). Wiper blades are working. All work done recently was over $1000.
Compression test was done: 180, 75, 80, nd 185All gauges seem to bee working. All fuses replaced. There are a few things that will need some minor attention, o driver's seat belt, he cable to release the hood needs to be replace, heair-boxis not currently attached, ir cleaner may be missing a hose. Will include all extra parts including the airbox. A few little paint chips on the hood (see in pictures).
Please be aware that this car is almost 50 years old, t is not showroom quality, ut is certainly beautiful and in great shape. Very straight body.LBJ was still the president then. Ted Williams was still alive ( a Boston Red Sox legend). The engine bay was repainted when the engine was taken out, t is a slightly different red. There appears to be no rust on the car, nd seems very intact. The floor pans were replaced, ut was not done with the pans from an Alfa. The trunk seems completely solid, here is a spare wheel in the trunk, ut no jack.
