TheAlfa Romeo Spider is aroadster produced by the Italianmanufacturer Alfa Romeo from 1966 to 1993with small run of 1994 models for the North American market. The Spider remained in production for almost three decades with only minor aesthetic and mechanical changes. To choose a name for the spider Alfa Romeo announced a write-in competition, offering an example of the new car as a prize. Over 100 thousand ballots were sent in; the winner proposed the nameDuetto(duet). However the Duetto name could not be officially adopted due to Trademark issues, and the car was named simplyAlfa Romeo Spider 1600.
Finished in deep Carmen red, this Italian bodied roadster shows extremely well with only minor imperfections visible upon close inspection. All the trim is present and is brilliant and displays normal wear. The front and rear bumpers have been rechromed and fit is extremely tight and finish is exquisite. The headlights have crystal clear NOS covers. It also has new rear reflectors, new OEM Euro taillight assemblies and the signal lights have been replaced with NOS parts The weather-stripping is pliable, with little or no signs of drying, tearing or shrinkage. The steel wheels represent well with no major signs of marring or curb rash. The black canvass convertible top fits very well with no visible tearing, and the three rear windows are extremely clear. The car has a black boot that functions as designed and is in great condition.
