UPDATE May 13, 2020 Sold on BringAtrailer
This 1958 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Veloce is said to have remained with a longterm owner in New Jersey until recently being discovered in his workshop. The car is finished in black over red and is powered by its numbers-matching 1,290cc twin-cam four. Additional features include an IPRA heater, Lucas sideview mirror, tunnel-case four-speed gearbox, 15″ Fergat wheels, and period AMCO wind wings. The car was acquired by the selling dealer a few months ago, and recent service included installing a new distributor, ignition coil, spark plugs and wires, front wheel cylinders, front wheel bearings, and brake hoses. This Veloce 750F is now offered as part of DriverSource’s Spring Motoring Collection with a tool roll, jack, spare parts catalog, original keys, and a clean Texas title.
Pinin Farina-styled bodywork is finished in black and features a single Lucas sideview mirror mounted on the driver-side front fender. The car is also equipped with a black soft top, Lucas taillights, clip-on AMCO wind wings, and a period enamel Milano badge on the trunk. Close-up photos of blemishes in the paint are shown in the gallery below, along with images of Sekurit glass etchings.
The 15″ wheels retain Fergat decals and wear chrome hubcaps along with older Pirelli Cinturato tires. A fifth Fergat wheel is located in the trunk and wears a Pirelli tire. New front wheel bearings and wheel cylinders have reportedly been installed, along with new front and rear brake hoses.
The seats were reupholstered during previous ownership in red with black accents. Features include a period IPRA heater and lap belts, and a set of factory rubber floor mats is included in the sale and can be seen in the gallery below.
A wood-rim steering wheel frames Veglia instrumentation, including a Veloce-spec 8k-rpm tachometer and a 140-mph speedometer, as well as a combination gauge for fuel level, oil temperature, and water temperature. 43k miles are shown on the five-digit odometer.
In Veloce spec the aluminum 1,290cc DOHC inline-four was rated for over 100 horsepower from the factory. The seller states that a new distributor, ignition coil, and air filter were recently installed. The dual Weber carburetors were cleaned in 2020, and a tune-up was also performed. Recent compression check results can be seen in the gallery, showing between 140 and 155 psi.
Block stamping *AR1315 30999* can be seen above and matches the engine number listed on the chassis plate.
Power is sent to the rear wheels via a tunnel-case four-speed manual transmission. Additional underside photos can be seen in the gallery.

The 750F Giulietta Spider Veloce is an example of the ultimate expression of Alfa Romeo's 1,300 cc masterpiece. Utilizing the early SWB chassis and adding Weber side-draft carburetors, performance camshafts, and a specific oiling system meant to handle spirited use, the early Spider Veloces possess a rare combination of performance and style.
Uncovered from a New Jersey home workshop in late 2019, remarkably preserved from limited ownership, AR1495*0351, this Giulietta Veloce Spider represents an exciting offering for the most discerning collector and Alfista purists. Upon closer inspection, it appears the Spider retains numerous original attributes and equipment specific to an early preserved 750F. The body remains straight with even gaps all around, with a largely untouched cabin. The underside has been steam cleaned and is remarkably solid with original jack points intact and spot welds found throughout all joining seams. A truly fantastic original specimen.
