Pics of a Duetto racer buildup
Whew, I've been waiting a long time to start a thread like this. Though I'm not done, I've made enough progress to start the exhibition.
Okay, technically it's not a Duetto, but a '69 1750 Spider Veloce. I'm calling it a Duetto from here on out for convenience.
I bought this car 2.5 years ago locally from a lead off this site. I was looking for a wreck to rescue. This fit the bill almost perfectly: Banged up body, rusty floors, already stripped, and an unoriginal seized engine. It had most of it's ratty and moldy interior bits in boxes.
More importantly, it's a '69, which to me is the most desirable year Alfa we can run in our particular vintage race organization here in the Pacific Northwest.
If these pics upload properly, you'll see the car as I first saw it:
69 Spider, 2L, street; pursuit of happiness
69 Spider, 1.8L, race; happiness of pursuit
