The Alfa Romeo Spider will always be a favorite of ours here at CICFS, given the number of examples we've posted recently. This early Duetto is one of the best I've come across and is certainly going to make for a happy new owner.
1967 Alfa Romeo Duetto 1600 “Boat-Tail” Spider. Complete Show-Quality Restoration Recently finished. Looks and Drives Amazing. West-Coast car all it’s life. Never crashed, raced, or abused. All original sheet metal, no rust. Lots of money was spent to make this car one of the nicest examples around. This is the same model car that can be seen in the movie “The Graduate”.
This model is the last work of Battista Pininfarina and would make a great addition to any collection. This car drives Excellent. It revs up fast, and shifts great. It’s a blast to drive, and it gets alot of attention and compliments. All the gauges and lights work as they should. The ATE brakes are excellent, they do not pull or shimmy. The original 1600 engine had a complete professional rebuild by the previous owner. It runs very smoothly, no knocking, or smoking. It has excellent oil pressure. I had a Compression and Leak-down test preformed cold, and the results are as follows:
Cylinder 1: 200 pds 4%, Cylinder 2: 205 pounds 5%, Cylinder 3: 200 pounds 5%, Cylinder 4: 200 Pounds 4%. Much work has been done to this car, I will try to list it the best I can below:
Complete High-Quality Paint-job matched to the original color. Including under the hoods, in the trunk, and the door jams.
New Interior including: new original style rubber mat set, dash recovered, new seats, new sun-visors, new door panels, new center carpet.

The car is currently registered, and I have a clear California title. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email. Inspection and test-drive of the vehicle can be arranged. The car is located in Northridge, California.
This Duetto is certainly well sorted, as evidenced from such things as its undercarriage. The reserve is probably set somewhere in the high $20,000 to low $30,000 range, as that is where the best Duettos tend to exchange hands. Overall a nice example in a classic color that reminds us where the Spider love affair began as we await the next generation of open roofed Alfas.
