In 1960 Pininfarina was asked by Alfa Romeo to design a spider
based on the Sprint Speciale. They developed a prototype in 1961,
of which ultimately went into production in 1966. The popular
Giulia Spider, a mainstay of Alfa Romeo, found its replacement with
the Duetto Spider. Reliability and performance were strong, with
the majority of the new car's mechanical components carried over
unaltered from the proven Giulia. The "Duetto" name reflects the
car's recurring theme of two - two camshafts, two carburetors, and
two seats for the two occupants to sing together while
According to Numerazione Delle Vetture Alfa Romeo 1910-1972,
chassis number 10503.661276 originally corresponds to a 1966 Alfa
Romeo Spider Duetto, engine series AR 00536.00770-11033. Today, it
appears this particularly early Duetto was freshened as needed in
years past, driven and enjoyed as intended. The Alfa displays older
paint and brightwork, as well as portions of the cabin and
auxiliary equipment. Correct Carello headlight covers, steel wheels
and hubcaps complement, mounted to older 155R15 Firestone F-560
tires. An honest presentation along with a solid chassis, 661276
offers an excellent foundation for continued enjoyment.
Beautifully mellowed cosmetics only enhance the Alfa's original
character. The Duetto's cabin is tidy and generally correct with
more recent upholstery, black canvas convertible top, lap belts,
bespoke black herringbone Coco floor mats, and original Pininfarina
radio blank. A fitted boot cover accompanies for open motoring.
Recorded mileage reads 40,460.
Factory identification plaques and chassis stampings remain fixed
the front firewall, one of which reflect the vehicle's German
delivery - as well as the Pininfarina body number stamped into the
rear trunk floor (151848). The luggage compartment appears
preserved with correct rubber mats, jack and matching spare tire
assembly. A solid chassis and undercarriage lead to an equally tidy
engine compartment. It's believed the 1600cc powerplant currently
fitted (AR00536.07726) is original to this chassis and retains
proper Bologna Weber 40DCOE27 carburetors and Veloce style
manifold. Engine compression reads 140, 150, 140, 150 psi.

stylish and very drivable automobile. First-year Duettos come
