History:This 1967 Duetto was purchased from a gentleman in Indiana who had owned the car until 2019. The original owner in inland North East California up and through the early 80s, then kept the car at his house in Michigan as a summer driver. I am still the 3rd owner. The paint was original since the elcometer readings on the car were consistent with original paint and there are no signs otherwise, with the exception of the nose having been resprayed after an "Alfa Kiss".” As it sits now, this car is truly an excellent example. It's incredibly dry, unrestored with no rust, and fun-to-drive. It"s nicely sorted from a mechanical standpoint, has a great color combo, and is extremely honest and original.
Exterior:- Body is phenomenally dry. Very, very impressive for an unrestored Alfa of the 60s. There are a couple dings on the nose bright work. There one on the nose and there is another, less significant ding on the rear edge of the trunk lid.
- Original paint. There is checking in the paint on the nose and onto the hood. Paint presents very well overall though. There are a number of small chips along the door crease and mid line on both sides; these have all been touched up and are really only noticeable with a close look. Paint gauge readings are viewable in the gallery for those who are interested. In the trunk the car actually still has the Duco sticker with the BIANCO 95-C-026 paint code on there. The shock towers in the trunk even still have the dabs of red factory paint on them!
- Polished surfaces are in good shape throughout. Weatherstripping is definitely dry inside the door sill, particularly on the passenger side, but is nice everywhere else.- Glass is clear and crack-free. Front windshield still has the 1975 California inspection sticker on it, left from the original owner. Light lenses are also clear and crack-free throughout. The car retains its Hella H4 lenses, Carello light covers, as well as its Vitaloni fender-mounted mirror.
- Original steelies show some patina, but I do have a second set that will also go with the car. Those wheels are in good condition very valuable but wear a set of dry old Cinturatos. Polished hubcaps show some dings in the front, the rears are very nice.
- Soft top is in good shape. There are two small punctures that were repaired on the passenger side.Interior: Seats were reupholstered in a very nice medium-dark red vinyl. The original seat material wasn't thrown out, but rather kept in a box that will go along with the car. Seats are simply excellent.
- Dash has a few cracks but still all there. I've used a dash cover and it looks great. The dash could be fully restored for a reasonable cost and probably the only thing that this amazing original could use.
- Odometer reads 24,621 and is functional. Other gauges are all functional as well. This car does not have air conditioning. All lights and signals are functional. AM/FM/Cassette radio is not functional.
Under the Hood / Underbody: Please take a look through the underbody photos, as the car is documented in detail. Underbody is excellent. No previous metal work and no rust. Very much structurally sound. Extremely impressive shape for an unrestored Alfa, and a definite highlight of the car. This car retains its original engine, the twin-cam I4. The AR00536 block decodes as correct for a series one Duetto. Five speed manual trans number is 99289, with a 9/41 final drive.This stunning original runs and drives very, very well. The sound is absolutely magnificent. The car idles cool and steady, pulls really hard through the gears without any hesitation, shifts smoothly, brakes straight and effectively, tracks straight, and feels nice and light on its feet. No creaks or squeaks over bumps, no noises or tendencies of concern. A confidence-inspiring driver that can be enjoyed just as it is for many years as these cars are soaring in price every year getting harder and harder to find in such nice original condition.
