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 motoring.

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.

The ever-iconic Alfa Romeo Duetto of The Graduate makes for the ideal entry into a classic Italian collectible and an all-around stylish and very drivable automobile. First-year Duettos come highly prized among enthusiasts; we offer this Giulia Spider for worldwide purchase and delivery from our Houston, Texas showroom.
