Selling an Alfa Romeo Series 1 Spider
The first generation of the Alfa Romeo Spider, or the Series 1 Spider, was debuted to the public at the 1961 Turin Motor Show in Italy. Due to the continuing success of other Alfa Romeo models of the time and economical challenges facing Italy, however, the first production Alfa Romeo Series 1 Spider would not emerge until the end of 1965. Based on the Alfa Romeo Giulia 105 Series chassis, the Series 1 would launch at the March 1966 Geneva Motor Show. It would offer a Pininfarina-designed body and a 1,570cc variant of the Alfa Romeo twin-cam four-cylinder engine with dual Weber carburetors. Approximately 109hp would be offered. Also known as the “Duetto,” the Alfa Romeo Series 1 Spider would be produced from 1966 to 1967 and would be replaced by the 1750 Spider Veloce in 1967. This version offered 118hp and a 1.8L engine. Later in production, a Spider 1300 Junior would come on the scene in 1968 and would have a 1,290cc engine capable of 89hp. In total, it is estimated that approximately 13,678 examples of the Alfa Romeo Series 1 Spider models were manufactured between 1966 and 1969.

Alfa Romeo Series 1 Spider Seller’s Guide
Because early Alfa Romeo classics like the Alfa Romeo Series 1 Spider are prone to rust damage, potential buyers of your classic will likely request a third party inspection to understand the overall condition of your car. You should always try to be accommodating to serious buyers who have this request. For those models that are unfinished restoration projects or rolling chassis, buyers may want to do a walk-around inspection to ensure they have a good concept of what they’re purchasing. It is important to note that many collectors and enthusiasts believe that if an Alfa Romeo Series 1 Spider is too far-gone with rust damage, it may not be economically feasible to restore.
