At the Geneva Motor Show in 1966, Alfa Romeo presented the 1600 Spider for the first time. Based on the chassis and technique of the Giulia 105 and with a body designed by Pininfarina. The last design that master Battista Pininfarina himself was involved with and which he himself thought was the most beautiful.
After signing a contest, the winner, Mr. Guidobaldi Trionfi from Brescia, came up with the name and got a brand new car as a prize. The Spider received the official name Duetto, but soon the name was dropped due to brandtechnical reasons. This is a very early one of the first 700 chassis who officially still has the predicate Duetto. The design with the round back, which the Italians called "Osso di Seppia", is for many the purest and most desirable one. When the car appeared in the movie "The Graduate", with a young Dustin Hoffman behind the wheel, the tone for the sporty image of the Duetto had been set.
This is a very unique, early and original example and except for a repaint never been restored. This Duetto is built in 1966 and originally delivered in Italy. It features the original 1.570 cc twincam engine with dual Weber carburettors for 109 hp, equipped with disc brakes and a smooth shifting gearbox. The car has a perfect straight body with dito panelfittings, absolute stainles (also the underside) and the chrome is also very beautiful. The seats and interior is still original (!) with all the originall rubber mats, also in the boot. With a new black linnen soft top and the original tonneau cover. Together with the original 15"steel wheels makes this a unique original car. In an irresistible beautiful color scheme:
"Blu Olandese" with black upholstery, has this Alfa Romeo a remarkably chique appearance.
Technically also in a sound condition. This is just a very real Duetto!
