This 1963 Alfa Romeo Giulia 1600 Sprint Speciale left the factory finished in red and was sold new in Trieste, Italy. It is one of just 1,366 examples produced and was acquired by the seller as a restoration project five years ago. Work performed so far has included disassembly, stripping the body shell to bare metal, rust repair, bodywork, and priming. The sale includes a 1,570cc inline-four engine, 5-speed gearbox, rear differential, drum brake system, a partial interior, and an assortment of uninstalled components. This Sprint Speciale project is now being offered in Ventura with a clean California title in the seller’s name.
Metal work and rust repair were performed after removal of the glass, trim, bumpers, and interior. Panel gaps were then reset and the body was treated with a 2K direct-to-metal primer. The chrome bumpers and grille trim have been stripped, straightened, and fitted to the body. The lights, glass, and many of the included exterior fixtures have also been installed for shipment.
A set of factory steel wheels and covers are fitted. The included side windows, trim, wiring, switches, cables, and inner fender panels are shown above.
The window regulators, factory gauges, and wiring are included. Additional photos of the seats and upholstery are provided in the gallery below.
The included 1,570cc twin-cam four will need to be rebuilt and is currently missing camshafts, valves, pistons, and cylinder liners. Closeups of the assembly stamping (#337) on multiple engine castings can be viewed in the gallery. A 5-speed gearbox is currently installed in the car, though it should be inspected prior to use.
A new driveshaft will have to be sourced by the next owner. Additional photos of the underside are shown in the gallery below.
