Lot 368: 1967 Alfa Romeo Duetto Spyder

Auto Moto D'Epoca, Coys (19 November 2005)

With the advent of the 1950s, Alfa Romeo was forced to rationalise its production in order to survive financially. Nonetheless the firm still maintained a strong sporting tendency, and a model was always available to satisfy the whims of Alfa's affluent young customers; such a car was the Giulia Spider. Like its predecessor the Giulietta, the Giulia sported elegant open coachwork by Pininfarina, but the principal improvement came with the new 1.6 litre engine which replaced the old 1.3 litre unit. The result was a smoother, less fussy performance, with more torque and a more serious, powerful feeling. The familiar high-pitched exhaust rasp developed a noticeably lower tone, whilst spark plugs suddenly had less tendency to foul. A five-speed transmission was also standardised, whilst on the Spider a bonnet bulge, attractively formed into a full-width scoop, was provided to clear the taller block of the 1,600cc engine.Offered in exceptionally original condition, this rare 'boat tail' spyder has never required restoration. Finished in the attractive period shade of Ivory with black interior, this is an attractively priced example of a car that is hard to find in this condition in norther Europe.Questo, esemplare del popolare spider "osso di seppia" si presenta in eccellenti condizioni. La vettura non stata mai restaurata e si presenta in perfetto stato di conservazione. La vernice quella originale della fabbrica. Una vettura appetibile per tutti i collezionisti del Nord Europa desiderosi di acquistare un meraviglioso duetto ottimamente mantenuto e privo di ruggine.
