This is a 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider Veloce. Arguably, the most desirable of the Guilietta/Giulia Spider series and clearly the one with the most performance. Those in the know will be aware that there were only 1091 of them produced in 1964/1965, and the surviving numbers are estimated to be far less than half. I have owned this car for over thirty years. The time has come to part with it as it now deserves a level of restoration that I know I will not perform.
Alfa Romeo's Centro Documentazione in Italy has confirmed this vehicle's chassis number AR 390775 corresponds to an Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider Veloce (101.18), manufactured on the 5th of May 1965 and sold on the 31st of May 1965 in Chicago USA. They also confirmed the body color as red, with a black interior. I have attached a picture of the communication. The engine block number is AR00121.02240 with is believed to be the original engine per the number sequence in the in the ALFA ROMEO 1600 SPIDER VELOCE REGISTER (101.18) http://www.veloceregisters.net/veloce.htm, and the CLASSIC ALFA ROMEO REGISTRY https://www.classicalfaromeoregistry.com/type-750-101-giulietta-giulia-spider/type-750-101-giulietta-giulia-sprint. I elected not to register the car due to person privacy reasons.
The car has been in covered storage during my ownership. It was used as driver in Honolulu and parked in the mid 1980's when I discovered it. The previous owner acquired it from a family member that was an Alfa Romeo fanatic. When first purchased, I removed the radiator and drained the coolant. The car appears to be relatively complete and original and has been poorly repainted/bodyworked in the distant past under prior ownership. The body/chassis is very sound for its age and known rust areas, with good floorboards and lower structural members. I have included a link below with over 100 pictures for you to review. The hood unlocks and open fine, however the driver's door and trunk latches are faulty/frozen. The top will need to be replaced, with all mechanical parts intact.
Mechanically the car presents itself as an original Veloce car as documented in the pictures. The 1600 engine has the proper Veloce parts, but of course items like the Veloce header and original air ducting will need to be replaced. The engine does not turn, and no attempt has been made to physically move the crank for fear of damage. The 5 speed transmission shifts smoothly in all gears while in the parked state, and the ZF steering box feels crisp with little play. This car has the finned drum brakes on all four corners, and the braking system will need to be properly rebuilt. All of the wheels appear to be the correct oval Borranis'. There are hubcaps for two of the four wheels. All four tires are in poor condition and need to be replaced. The radiator will be reinstalled in the car for shipping, and the original tonneau cover will be included with the car. There are no other parts that will be included with the car.
