This Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Veloce is one of 1,203 examples produced for the 1960 model year and was reportedly modified for SCCA gymkhana competition in the 1960s. The car is said to have been raced through the 1970s and was acquired by the seller for the Motorama Auto Museum of Aniwa, Wisconsin over 20 years ago, reportedly following a refurbishment begun by a friend in 1980. Power comes from a replacement 1.3-liter twin-cam four and four-speed manual transmission, and modifications include red Koni shocks, sway bars, lowering springs, three-shoe front drum brakes, a roll bar, and more. A new battery was installed and an oil change performed in March 2020 along with bleeding of the brakes. This Giulietta Spider is offered with factory bumpers, a history and list of specifications written by the seller, and a clean Wisconsin title in the seller’s name.
The wheel wells were reportedly modified for tire clearance and the front valance was reinforced in the 1960s along with removal of the horns, turn signals, top, and bumpers. Reproduction chrome “eyebrows” and Pininfarina badges have been installed along with Moroso hood pins. The right fender is said to have been damaged while racing in the late 1970s, and was repaired by the seller’s friend in the early 1980s before the car was resprayed in its current white. The factory bumpers are included in the sale, though several pieces will need to be rechromed according to the seller.
A period SCCA Canadian American Challenge Cup decal is affixed to the driver-side vent window. Campagnolo 15″ magnesium wheels wear period Dunlop L500 bias-ply racing tires with flat spots, and the right rear wheel has a crack that can be seen in the gallery below. Braking is handled by three-shoe drums up front and two-shoe versions out back, with stainless steel lines and hoses also fitted. The brakes were bled in March 2020. Suspension modifications include red Koni shocks, lowering springs, and front and rear sway bars.
The cockpit features black bucket seats with white piping as well as side windows and door locks. The insulation, carpets, heating system, and glovebox insert are said to have been removed in the 1960s, and an SCCA-sanctioned roll bar was installed. A split seam on the driver’s seat bottom was patched and the door panels were re-dyed according to the seller.
An aftermarket four-spoke steering wheel frames Veglia instrumentation including a Veloce-specific 8k-rpm tachometer and a 140-mph speedometer. Just over 21k miles are shown on the five-digit odometer, two of which have been added by the seller in over 20 years. A plaque for the 1969 SCCA Concours d’Elegance at Gunston Hall in Washington, DC is mounted on the dashboard.
The 1.3-liter twin-cam four wears stamp 1315-32413 and was reportedly sourced from a 1959 Veloce Spider. The engine breathes through dual Weber carburetors and stock Veloce headers, and the muffler has been removed. Electrics include a Marelli generator, starter, distributor, and voltage regulator as well as Golden Lodge spark plugs with period wires. An oil change and battery replacement were performed in March 2020.
Power is sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission with a tunnel-type case that is said to have been sourced from a 1958 Sprint Veloce. The rear axle reportedly features 101 fine-splined axles and a locked differential with 5.12:1 gears. A history of the car and list of specifications written by the seller is provided in the gallery below.
