1966 Alfa Romeo Spider 1600 “Duetto” by Pininfarina Mileage - 71879 Registration - JUX 354D Chassis Number – 0123 This 1966 Alfa Romeo Spider 1600 “Duetto” comes to us with 71,879 miles from new. This beauitful example is finished in unmarked white with a very nice black leather interior. This Spider benefits from the fitment of a new mohair roof. The Alfa is in perfect running order, having been through our workshop. This little italian sports car is in perfect working condition, it simply glides along the road and is ready to be driven across the continent. The overall conditon of this Alfa is beautiful. The seats have fluted centre and are in very good condition, the quality remains with the rest of the interior with the black leather being complimented by chrome finishings and a body colour dashboard. There are Alfa Romeo ribbed rubber matts to both the passenger and drivers footwells. With the roof up or down the Pinin Farina design is simply stunning. The body is curvatious and the body lines flow magnificently, a true Italian masterpiece! The highly polished chrome compliments the exterior and runs around the complte body, from the bumpers, to the sill moulding and the beautiful bonnet grille, all is great condition. The last project led by Giovanni Battista “Pinin” Farina in person, the Alfa Romeo Spider had original, slender, rounded shapes, with downward-sloping bonnet and boot which earned it the nickname “cuttlefish bone”. This was not the only unofficial name acquired by the sparkling Alfa spider, which was soon known worldwide as the “Duetto”, a name which originated from a public competition but was then claimed by a famous confectionery firm, forcing Alfa to abandon it only a year after the launch. The streamlined Spider was built with the mechanicals of the Giulia Sprint GT with the wheelbase shortened by Pininfarina by 225mm, using that of the Giulietta/Giulia Spider, soon to be replaced. Longitudinal front twin-cam engine of 1570 cc with two 40mm twin-barrel carburettors providing 109 horsepower, 5-speed transmission, independent front suspensions, rear-wheel drive and four disc brakes.
