Harry's Thoughts

It might be a surprise to some, but I love Alfa Romeos! The handling is superb and the styling is just perfect. This is the last of the Round Tail Alfas and is beautifully restored.

THE ESSENTIALS

This is the iconic 1969 Alfa Romeo 1750 Spider Veloce (105.62) that has been beautifully restored as a weekend classic driver, for touring or show.  It is presented in the classic Russo red livery with new tan leather interior.  We are huge fans of Alfas, and this is one to seriously consider.  The 1969 Alfa offered here is the last of the Round Tails.

According to factory records, this Alfa Spider was first sold on the 13th of May 1970 to Alfa Romeo Germany, Frankfurt.  Its early years were spent in Ohio and on July 16, 201o, Wedgewood Sports acquired the Alfa from Frank Porreca with a mere 95,00o miles accumulated since new.  Through 2010 and 2011, the Alfa benefitted from a significant restoration undertaken by Wedgewood Sports and Import in Powell, OH.  Wedgewood Sports had been working on Alfas for over 30 years before commencing the restoration.  A full rebuild of the original engine and drivetrain commenced and included a Weber performance cam set, suspension upgrades and more.  A full bare metal repaint was also performed in its original Russo (Paint Code 514- Red).  New GTA Alloy Wheels were installed and most all of the seals, emblems and other components were replaced with new.  New Carello Perspex Headlight Covers were installed and look terrific!  Included in the sale is a significant file with receipts for all the parts associated with its restoration.

The Russo Paint has gorgeous shine and luster and has been polished for show.  The paint quality is very nice and looks great with the tan leather interior and black top.  Most of the chrome and stainless-steel trim are new, but the bumpers and certain other trim are original and in good condition.  Later, the Alfa received its present gorgeous tan leather interior, which is in exceptional condition today.  The black Haartz canvas convertible top is as-new and fits very well.  The black vinyl top boot is also as-new and looks great.  Overall, this is a wonderful Alfa Romeo that can be enjoyed as a classic driver, toured or shown.  It needs nothing to be enjoyed today.

The engine compartment displays Alfa’s 1.8-liter twin overhead cam four-cylinder engine that is still considered a classic masterpiece.  The engine compartment is very well detailed and displays the two Weber carburetors that help the performance and reliability of the drivetrain.  The five-speed transmission was also rebuilt and shifts well through the gears.  The Vredestein radials are new and have few miles.  The undercarriage has been well detailed and painted and looks great.

This Alfa comes complete with nearly 15 years of history, restoration and parts receipts, shop manual, tools and ownership history.

We have this Alfa priced well.  The Hagerty No. 2 value is $70,600.  See the Hagerty Values here: 1969 Alfa Romeo 1750 Round Tail | Hagerty Valuation Tools

The Spider was launched at the 36th Geneva Motor Show in March 1966, and together with the Giulia Sprint GT Veloce tested by the press at an event organised in Gardone Riviera. 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 100,000 ballots were sent in, the great majority from Italy; the winner was Guidobaldo Trionfi from Brescia, who proposed the name "Duetto" (duet). However it could not be officially adopted due to trademark issues: the confectionery manufacturer Pavesi had launched on the market in 1965 a chocolate snack called, indeed, 'Duetto'; the Court of Milan ruled that Pavesi, having already registered the name, had exclusive rights to it, thus the car was named simply Alfa Romeo Spider 1600. The Spider's 1,570 cc twin cam engine had dual Weber two-barrel side-draft carburetors, and produced 109 PS DIN (80 kW; 108 hp; or 129 PS SAE). Sparsely fitted inside but including five speed manual transmission, disc brakes 15" wheels fitted with Pirelli Cinturato 155HR15 CA67 tyres. The price on launch in Italy was 2,195,000 lire. In the US the car sold for $3,950 (compared to $3,991 for a Lotus Elan and $2,607 for an MGB). In the UK the car's price was close to a Jaguar E-Type. In January 1968, in Vietri sul Mare (Salerno), Alfa Romeo introduced the press to its 1750 line of cars, which included the new 1750 Berlina saloon, the Giulia Sprint-based 1750 GT Veloce coupé, and the 1600 Spider-based 1750 Spider Veloce, which replaced the original Spider 1600.[19] All were powered by the same engine, a new 1,779 cc, 118 PS DIN (87 kW; 116 hp; or 132 PS SAE) version of the Alfa Romeo twin cam engine. Top speed rose to 190 km/h (118 mph). The car did not bear any Spider badging, just a "1750" script below the rear Alfa Romeo badge. During the production run, the front repeater lights were moved ahead of the wheel arches.
