I've attached some pictures of the assortment of hubcaps I have.

a) Top left, stainless with silver lettering - but "small" text
b) Top right, stainless with silver lettering and "large" text
c) Bottom left, stainless with gold lettering
d) Bottom right, chrome with "large" lettering.

Type b) were I believe the standard issue on my '69 1750 spider.

But which models used the others?

(I bought the chrome version over 30 years ago from an Alfa dealer in London - but never used it)

The large black ring wheel covers as pictured were fitted to the 1750 GTV and Berlina. The 1750 Spider got small diameter black ring covers. Will try to find a pic...

EDIT; wheel cover pic is here.

I think the earliest 1750 Spiders may have had the smaller rings. At least that's what I have assumed. If I remember correctly, the owner's manual shows the small rings like the duettos but most of the 1750s I have seen pictures of have had the larger rings. I do not claim any expertise though!

PS. It is the extract from the manual that Jim has linked to in the preceding post that I was thinking of.

Spot on Charles!

Copied this from the ClassicAlfa website.

But there again I always knew that my large ring caps were original.

I originally posted just to find out why there are different types of large ring caps - i.e. gold text, small text, large text, chrome rather than stainless.

Presumably, as Papajam says, these variations are associated with different models.

Seems daft that Alfa didn't just stick to one type.
