In 1966 Alfa Romeo produced what might in today’s jargon be called the "Beta edition" of the Duetto.

Purchased in 1976 in Vicenza Italy, this car listed is in very good condition. Finding a market value for this gem is difficult. Extrapolating from National Automobile Dealers Association data the asking price tops out at $140,000.

It’s a fun car to drive with that special ride and handling a sports car is all about. It’s a classic, a 50-year-old design that still looks good today. The Alfa Romeo “Spider 1600” was introduced to the world on March 10th, 1966. The unofficial name for the first generation of this Italian classic is “Duetto”, implying a small car built for two. The Duetto was a major change in design for Alfa Romeo, so in 1966 Alfa Romeo chose to hold their cards close to their vest and did not sell the Duetto in the United States. Americans had to wait till 1967 to get their hands on one. After the Duetto made an appearance in the movie The Graduate it became very popular in the U.S. This Alfa Romeo was number 700 off the line and you’ll be hard pressed to find a Duetto built earlier. Like the ’64 Mustang the Duetto was the start of a line that lasted for decades.
