The ancestry of the Alfa Romeo Duetto started with the Pininfarina designed Spider Speciale Aerodinamica shown at the 1961 Turin Motor Show. Concept to production took a little longer in those days so the Duetto only came into fruition in 1966. Initially it was not well received and quickly earned the nickname 'Osso di Seppoa' (cuttlefish). The name 'Duetto' came about from a competition held by Alfa Romeo to distinguish the car from its Giulia 105 series stablemates, the Coupé and Berlina and was accepted for its reference to the two seat layout.

This glorious 1966 Alfa Romeo Spider 'Duetto' 1600 was purchased new by its one and only owner from the Alfa Romeo main dealers one mile from his house in Paris. The garage is still there and this car is remembered by one of the existing mechanics, having also serviced it from new, In 1969 it is indeed believed that this Duetto had a replacement engine, the engine number relates to a 1600 Guilia Super and is of the similar type fitted to the Duetto's. Having come direct from Paris, the car has its French papers but is not UK registered so as not to spoil the provenance until such point a new owner is ready to register in their name. While the car has remained in use, the distance covered each year has become minimal and, as time went on, the car has crept into the collection out of the weather for the winter months more and more. The body work has been refreshed in its time and looks almost as good as new today, this example is very solid in the boot floor and front inner wing areas and the paint work is very presentable with a deep shine throughout.


The interior is original and in very good condition complete with its rubber floor mats and period radio in the dash. It still has the stickers on the windscreen informing the owner to run the engine in from new and information on tyre pressures for different makes of tyres. Mechanically the vendor tells us that everything is in very good working order, the engine gives good oil pressure and, once warmed through, a nice even tickover. The gearbox is smooth in operation and the clutch functions correctly. Such a car is not only very rare but, with such a history and owned by just one gentleman, very sought after.
