Except for the mud flaps, it looks like a photo from 1967 factory advertisement. Your Alfa always looks perfect.

Very nice.

Second time this week I was reminded of my trip to Bofors Sweden when I was there to install robotic equipment there. 20 years past. Nice people and excellent country drives.

Wille, my son Erik (Margaretas son also) from Höllviken was here for 17 days over Christmas with his family...they were amazed at the cold ,rainy winter we had...one day it was actually warmer in Skåne than in Houston!

Yepp, Bjorn S. The winter is not what it used to be. Here's another beautiful photo of a Duetto in the US, by Evan Klein.

Wille, The first picture is the car you often showcase here on the BB, but the second picture looks like a US model '69? What am I missing?

The second car is a 1750 Veloce US version. No mud flaps. I found it on the Motor Trend Classic. It should be located in the US but I don't know the owner. The Duetto and the photo is beautiful. It's done by a pro photografer. I love it.

just queries Willie. But have can you define, that the picture from Motor Trend classick, it is a 1750 from that picture
From what I can see, the rims are 14", the 1600 had 15". Unless they have been changed of course. The side repeaters are on front of the wheels too, likely to be a US 1750.

Thanks for the education Wille. I should have noticed the side markers. The wheel size I am unable to judge. But the sidemarkers , should be evidence enough , its a 1750

Trivia question to above photo:
anyone know what the "USC" cut cleverly into the hedge stands for?
Univ. of Southern California...maybe?
