When you think of the quintessential Italian roadster, more than likely one car comes to mind: the Alfa Romeo Spider. Fortunately, there four generations of the 105/115 Series Spider to choose from that span four decades. So whether you want a classic or something with a bit more modern convenience, there is certainly a Spider model for you. This early Spider Duetto for sale in the Greater Toronto Area is similar to the one Dustin Hoffman made famous in "The Graduate," right down to the color.

There must have been something in the air in 1967, because it seems that the whole world changed overnight. It was everywhere; in music, theater, social mores, political unrest, technology and, of course, automobiles. The height of the muscle car era was in swing and the Summer of Love was soon to start. Meanwhile, Alfa Romeo introduced its spectacular Duetto Spider and it was noticed by everyone who followed automobile design.
The car features a sharp, razor-like nose, glass-covered headlights, a classic scallop running down the side and a boat-like taper at the rear. It looked sleek, sexy and Italian in every way. Interiors were pure sports car, but luxurious enough to keep the driver comfortable during longer trips. Instrumentation was excellent and the overall feel of the car superb. Driving it was pure fun due to its nimbleness and ease of control.
This beautiful 1967 Alfa Romeo Duetto has been restored from the previous owner in which includes several upgrades. One of the major upgrades done was the braking, which was originally a boost ATE system. The Alfa itself is equipped with an upgraded 2000cc Engine and a fully rebuilt fuel injection system in which was professionally done by WES. The suspension has all new vinyl bushings and the exhaust system is virtually brand new.

Duettos are some of the most valuable of the 105/115 Series Spiders, and this example is no exception. The aftermarket alloy wheels may not be to everyone's taste, but I've seen Minilite style rims on Spiders before and I find the look to be rather fetching. The asking price here is right on the money, considering good Duettos are now reaching well into the $30,000 territory. At this price, you'll be getting not only a style icon but a classic that you can use without guilt.
