--Red with Black interior, Black carpeting and Black convertible top, Restored, 1.6 liter 4-cylinder, 5-speed manual.
The beautiful Duetto bodywork was penned at Pininfarina and the last project that the company’s founder, Battista “Pinin” Farina had a personal hand in. The beautiful design is characterized by minimal chrome, distinctly sculptured body sides and that signature tapering, rounded tail. This is the original expression of the long-running Alfa Spider and is considered by many to be the purest and most desirable of all models in the 27 year production run. The model achieved worldwide public recognition after starring alongside Dustin Hoffman in the film, The Graduate.
Testing a Duetto in 1967, the UK’s Motor magazine noted “the individuality of the car, the sheer fun of driving it and the fact that it does certain things better than other sports cars will probably tempt some people into paying the extra for.” The Duetto was built on a strong unibody platform and came standard with disc brakes, smooth shifting 5-speed manual transmission and a 1600cc version of the famous Alfa twin cam engine with dual side draught weber carburetors.
This Duetto is an older restoration that still shows the quality of the workmanship with the complete car still looking extremely fresh. The panel fit is excellent and the minimal bright work is in extremely good condition throughout. The engine bay detailing is very nice and this Duetto is still fitted with its original air filter, a rare find. The engine and gearbox work strong and smooth with excellent power and superb intake noise during acceleration from the Weber carbs and typical Alfa exhaust note. Absolutely everything is working as it was originally intended and delivered when new, this Duetto is a proper and honest example of throughout. Inspections and road tests are welcomed to satisfy anyone’s suspect that this Duetto is anything but one of the best of its kind.
This Duetto is an exception high quality example and certain to satisfy both the Alfa enthusiast and those seeking a new 1960’s sports car experience. The Duetto is considered among the finest driver’s cars of all time, known for their lively handling and spritely revving twin-cam engines. Some say they are unmatched for sheer driving joy/fun.
