One of the most attractive convertibles from the 1960s was undoubtedly the Pininfarina designed Alfa Duetto 2-seater, which was first introduced in 1966, initially powered by the legendary 1.6-litre twin cam engine driving through a five-speed gearbox. Always a sought after model - even before it was immortalised by Mrs Robinson in the film 'The Graduate' - the success of this open Alfa meant it would be offered by the Milan firm in much the same form until 1994.
This LHD example is finished in rosso with nero interior and displays just 67,000km on its odometer, a mileage the vendor believes to be correct. Originally delivered to a customer in Holland, the car has been in the UK since 1993 and is accompanied by a Swansea V5C and current MoT to January 2017 along with other sundry invoices and expired MoTs. Described as being in "good" condition regarding its bodywork, paintwork, engine and interior, this iconic Alfa benefits from an oil service and engine tune at specialist Jamie Porter in January this year and is ready to enjoy.
