The Highwoodalfa tops follow original Alfa Romeo factory patterns.
This is to assure an accurate and excellent installation. The Highwoodalfa tops offer best resistance to fading and atmospheric influence. Prices are on each model site. The top looks like the original cotton canvas but lasts longer and holds the colour excellent. Even after several years it looks like new and will give you and your Alfa Romeo Spider so much joy. Easy to fit with our step-by-step Duetto instruction further down on this site.

We stock the soft top cover as on the photos above including metal frame for your Duetto and later Spiders too. Please see model price lists for exterior parts for prices.
One of the most attractive aspects of the Duetto and 1750 Spider Veloce, the Round-tails, was its folding soft top, which looked great whether up or down. Its ease of operation and effective weatherproofing earned it praise from many quarters as the best convertible top yet made. The later Spiders used the same material and design, but a slightly different frame. Please order by model as the tops are not interchangeable between the Round-tail 1966-1970 and the Kamm-tail Spiders 1970 and on.
The original Duetto’s soft-top itself was made of impermeable mohair and came in only one colour – black. There was some criticism about rear three-quarter visibility, for the soft-top canvas began immediately aft of the winding windows and there was effectively no wraparound in the flexible vinylite rear window. The Highwoodalfa top is a high-quality product.
The soft-top folded in one movement. First the over-centre catches securing it to the top of the windscreen frame had to be unclasped using Velcro at the sides. Then the soft top could be arched backwards, the folded soft-top encroaching somewhat into the space behind the seats. It was then held tight by pulling a central strap down and fixing it by Velcro, at that time a novelty.
Highwoodalfa offers the top product your Alfa Romeo Spider deserves. Easy to fit with the step-by-step instruction.
