Second, I finally asked Archivio Storico about my car, AR 1495 01878, and discovered it was built as a Veloce on 26 April 1957, (sold May 10th to Hoffman Motor Car Co.)

It was originally supplied as white with black interior. Best regards,

Featured here is a fine example of a 1957 Giulietta Spider Veloce. Sold new in southern California, it was purportedly a SCCA regional champion in its day and has recently been the subject of a careful restoration.

Originally white with a black interior, it was changed to red at some time in the distant past and continued to serve as a casual weekend competition car. The most recent owner and current vendor spent the past year and a half putting the car back right including removing later-add-on performance and safety equipment found on the car when he acquired it.

Sporting a 1750cc engine with hot street camshafts, disc brakes all around a split-case 5-speed transmission, MarelliPlex ignition and 6" wide rims in addition to its all-original bodywork, this Spider is a reflection of the best classic styling combined with the best later mechanicals found in 1960s-era Alfa-Romeos for both comfort, speed, reliability and performance. The car also conveys with a driver's seat suspected to be a recovered original competition seat from Alfa-Romeo further lending credibility to its former competition origins along with its extensive preparation.

If you've been looking for a drivable classic Italian sportscar that all the right work has been done to by experienced enthusiast owners, this Giulietta may appeal to your sense not only of style but also substance.
