Engine Number: AR00536-15077 (Correct,Duetto1600)
History:This 1967Duettowas purchased from a gentleman in Indiana who had owned the car for the last 20 years. The original owner was from inland North East California and owned it up and through the late 90s. I am the 3 owner. The paint is original Theelcometerreadings on the car are consistent with original paint and I have seen no signs otherwise, with the exception of the nose having beenre sprayedtoremedy some rock chips as I got the story from the second owner. It wasnot an accident or anything like that as he advised. This car is truly an excellent example of a rust free survivor which any Alfafanatic would trulyappreciate. It's incredibly dry, unrestored except for the seats and fun-to-drive. It's nicely sorted from a mechanical standpoint, has a great color combo, and is extremely honest and original.
Exterior:Please see the video along with the listing, as the car is documented in detail.
- Body is phenomenally dry. No bubbling whatsoever. 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 (see video), 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 theDucosticker with theBIANCO95-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.Weather strippingis 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 itsHellaH4 lenses,Carellolight covers, as well as itsVitalonifender-mounted mirror.

Originalsteeliesshow some patina, but I do have a second, much nicer set that will also go with the car. Those wheels are in good condition veryvaluablebut wear a set of dry oldCinturatos. 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. The car will also come with a hardtop, which looks great on the car. The hardtop is in decent shape and fits well and is a nice rare addition as most did not come with a hardtop!
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 areasonable cost andprobably the only thing that this amazing originalcould use.

Odometer reads 23,458 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 condition 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 oneDuetto. Five speed manualtransnumber 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 all of the gears without any hesitation, yet shifts smoothly. It brakes straight and effectively, tracks straight, and feels nice and light on its factory correct wheels. No creaks or squeaks over bumps, no noises or tendencies of any concern. A confidence-inspiring driver that can be enjoyed just as it is for many years or can be restored to a $90k plus restoration as you can see what they are going for when done correctly. These cars are soaring in price year over year, getting harder and harder to find in such nice original condition.
