Revisited: ’67 Alfa Romeo Duetto Spider
We featured this car when it came in fresh from a long term storage. But Mark decided he wanted to go through it and make it as good as it could be. So here it is again, ready to rock. See what a little care and knowledge can do? It seems like every Alfa Spider between 1966 and 1993 is referred to as The Graduate car driven by Ben Braddock played by Dusty Hoffman. But this one is a real Duetto and may be a distant relative of the car in the movie. It allegedly came from the same dealership in San Francisco that the movie car came from. The name Duetto was given to the new Pininfarina designed Spider through a write-in contest. By late ’67 probably as a 1968, they were called 1750 Spider Veloces. Many Alfisti (Alfa lovers) refer to these elegant Series 1 cars as Boattails. It is a thoroughly documented 3 owner car with 56,000 original miles. A real black plate California car that was brought to Connecticut 10 years ago.The seller has run it through our go-to-shop, Auto Turismo Sport and it is in great mechanical condition. It has the original engine and 5-speed transmission. A green one fully restored at the Monterey auctions brought $123k before buyers premium. You can start fresh with this one for $31,900.
