A well-presented and lovingly restored example of the stylish classic sports car, which retains its original ‘numbers matching’ engine. Under the bonnet is the original 750-series 1.3-litre twin-cam inline-four, which is fed by Weber carburettors and sends around 90bhp to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission. The odometer currently displays just 42,091 kilometres, and while this is believed to be accurate it is not warranted. This Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Veloce is offered for sale by its enthusiast keeper of the last 33 years, and its bodywork was restored by a marque specialist in 2015.
EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES
One of Turin-based designer Pininfarina’s first volume-produced cars, the Giulietta Spider Veloce was designed to bring a high level of refinement and mechanical sophistication to the small sports car sector. This example is finished in the classic hue of Alfa Rosso over a cream leatherette-trimmed interior with red piping. The body-coloured dashboard is topped with black vinyl, which matches the car’s carpets and convertible roof. A period-correct radio is fitted in the cabin, though it does not currently function. The car will be supplied with a selection of maintenance invoices and TÜV inspection certificates.
The car’s bodywork was restored in 2015 by classic Alfa Romeo specialist JP Corse, and is now in great shape. Having been resprayed during the car’s cosmetic restoration, the Alfa Rosso paintwork is in generally very good condition, showing only light minor signs of wear such as stone chips and other small markings.
The vendor notes the rear bumper is damaged, and there are stone chips to the car’s front end. Inside, the cabin presents very well indeed, with some creasing and light wear on the cream leather seats, but with no major wear or heavy discolouration.
Elsewhere, the interior controls and dials present with a handsome time-earned ‘patina’. The vendor reports that the light switch is dim, and the radio does not function. There are no known mechanical faults, and no warning lights are showing on the dashboard. The car’s most recent roadworthiness inspection was conducted in August 2018, when it was advised that the rear differential was weeping oil. The vendor reports that the car is overdue for inspection.
This Giulietta Spider Veloce’s latest service was carried out in August 2019 at an indicated 42,028 km by Autohaus Rumspoger. The work comprised of an engine oil and filter change, and the vendor also reports that the oil and filter were changed religiously during every year of their ownership. Prior to this, the car was serviced in June 2017 at an indicated 41,108 km at JP Corse. The work comprised of a brake adjustment, as well as the fitment of new brake pads and new brake lights.
In July 2015, the car was serviced and restored at JP Corse. Service work included an engine oil and filter change, brake repairs, ignition adjustment and a battery replacement. The car was also restored, which included a complete repaint with various parts replaced with genuine Alfa Romeo items.
This Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Veloce is a beautifully presented example of one of Pininfarina’s first mass-produced cars. Sporting the stunningly elegant lines of a 1950s design, this example benefits from a prior cosmetic restoration of its beautiful coachwork, while still featuring its original numbers-matching 750-series twin-cam engine. Having evidently been very well looked after by its current owner of more than 30 years, this Giulietta is now ready to be enjoyed by its next enthusiast owner for roof-down trips on sunny days and car shows alike.
