An embodiment of classic Italian automotive elegance and style, the Alfa Romeo Spider was produced from 1966 to 1969. It presents iconic bodywork by the famous Italian design house Pininfarina and offers an open-top driving experience with a manual convertible soft top. This 1969 Spider Veloce comes finished in red over black leather upholstery and is said to have undergone a host of recent service items including the installation of new spark plugs, valve cover gaskets, and more. Reported to have spent time in California and Oregon prior to the seller’s acquisition, this Spider is now being offered for auction out of Florida.
The Alfa Romeo Spider is characterized by its prominent, rounded boat-style nose, classic Alfa Romeo grille with horizontal slats, round inset headlights, gently sculpted hood, curvaceous fenders, and rounded taillights. This example is said to have been refinished in its factory-specified shade of red prior to the seller’s acquisition. It has since been fitted with a new black soft top imported from Europe. Details include chrome trim, a driver’s side bullet-style rearview mirror, bumperettes, and central dual-exhaust outlets. The seller notes some paint imperfections and swirl marks, additional images are provided in the gallery.
Inside, the driver is surrounded by black leather upholstery with matching carpets below. The seller adds that the bucket seats were professionally reupholstered, and the electrical system was completely overhauled. Details include a white-finished dashboard fascia, chrome trim and instrumentation bezels, and a black three-spoke steering wheel. All gauges, electronics, and accessories are reported to be working properly.
This Spider Veloce equips a 1,779cc inline-four with dual carburetors. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission. The seller adds that service items in preparation for the sale included replacements to the spark plugs, spark plug wires, plastic reservoirs, and water bag & caps along with an oil and filter change. Additionally, the valve cover was hydro-resurfaced and a new valve cover gasket was installed.
This sale will include a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “This is a mechanically sound car ready to be enjoyed as it is and with a lot of potential for improvement for the new owner. Duetto's are rare and hard to find, and this can become an excellent car with not too much effort.”
