This beautiful Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale (SS), build in 1965, in brilliant red over black interior which is one of only 140 of all cars known to exist today.
This car is the last coupé (Chassis No. AR 381.401) designed by Giuseppe “Nuncio” Bertone & Franco Scaglione with 2 doors and a front mounted engine which transmits its power to the rear wheels.
From the desk of Marco Fazio, Alfa Romeo historian, the chassis number AR 381401 originally corresponds to an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale (101.21), manufactured on the 17th September 1965 and sold on the 23rd November 1965 in Milan, Italy.
To be exact, it was the last frame of the series and the last engine of the production of the Giulia Sprint Speciale. This car was sold by “Luzzago 1975 Srl” in Bressia, Italy (http://www.luzzago.com) and transported to The Netherlands on the 27th September 1996.This car has been in my possession since 1 November 1997 and has been garaged and driven only rarely in the Netherlands till April 2001. The car is Alfa Racing red with either its original interior or a very high quality restoration prior to my purchase of it. It has a 1570CC original engine (AR00112*15918) installed.
My history with the Giulia SS
This car has been in my possession since 1 November 1997 and has been garaged and driven only rarely in the Netherlands till April 2001. From 2001 until 2014, the car is garaged in a conditioned environment.
After several years of sporadic having driven, I decided in 2001 to bring the car back to its original state, fact within the standing competition.
In consultation with Koos of Autobedrijf Van Neerijnen from Utrecht, he has decided to tackle the matter dramatically and the car completely to strip to the bare chassis. All parts have been restored, including the total chrome work. The chassis is restored at all places where it was needed and used for the entire chassis is an ore-using primer. Subsequently, the car is sprayed in Alfa Red. The entire bottom plate is fully restored and undersealed.Chrome is equally beautifully restored, with stunning finish which matches the total.
This particular example is a fully restored, particularly solid and straight, matching numbers car. The restoration was both mechanical and cosmetic, and in addition to its beautiful presentation. Paint and bodywork was performed by Autobedrijf Van Neerijnen te Utrecht, in Utrecht, Holland. According to the current owner, the paintwork was carried out from bare metal and the resulting finish is spectacular, over outstanding panels. The chrome is equally nice, with excellent trim fit throughout.
