1969 Alfa Romeo Duetto (1750 Spider Veloce)
4.5 Bitcoin (BTC),
In January 1968, in Vietri sul Mare (Salerno), Alfa Romeo introduced the press to its 1750 line of cars, which included the new 1750 Spider Veloce , which replaced the original Spider 1600. All were powered by the same engine, a new 1,779 cc, 118 PS DIN (87 kW; 116 hp; or 132 PS SAE) version of the Alfa Romeo twin cam engine. Top speed rose to 190 km/h (118 mph). The car did not bear any Spider badging, just a 1750 script below the rear Alfa Romeo badge. During the production run, the front repeater lights were moved ahead of the wheel arches.
While in Europe the 1750 was fitted with two twin horizontal carburettors, starting with model year 1969 models for the North American market had SPICA (Società Pompe Iniezione Cassani & Affini, a subsidiary of Alfa Romeo) mechanical fuel injection. According to Alfa Romeo engine output and performance were unchanged from the carburetted version. Modifications were also made to the suspension, brakes, electrics, 14 wheels and 165HR14 Pirelli Cinturato CA67 tyres, though the car looked effectively the same. Visible differences were limited to the rear-view mirror repositioned to the door, and badging on the tail, which read Alfa Romeo and iniezione (injection).
This vehicle has all original documentation (including manual, repair notes, and receipts from restoration in Colorado (restored in 1979). This is a drivers Alfa with 33,257 miles and is in excellent running condition. The interior is good (collector may want to refresh), and body has no rust. This vehicle has been stored inside for 15 years and has not seen a drop of rain. Modifications include a roll bar and front wing (for slightly aggressive stance) we added during restoration.
