1961 Alfa Romeo Sprint Giulietta Sprint Speciale, I am the third owner of this beautiful and special Alfa which is one of about 1300 produced between 1959 and 1962. I do not know how many are available, as mine has knock-Borrone wire wheels. It has been stored in my garage since 1976.

 The bodywork by Bertone, has the number AR10120*00486* and the engine block NO AR00120*00949*. The body is straight, no known accidents, and is constructed of steel, except for the aluminum hood. The two dual throat Weber  40DCOE carburetors are origional, as is the cast aluminum airbox. Four Borrone 60 spoke wire wheels are mounted on the car (size 15X4/2k, Record RW3344). The spare is a similar 60 spoke Borrone.The bug deflector is in good condition, and a radio antenna is installed (no radio). The glass is in good shape except for a small rock chip in the front window. The interior is in good to fair condition and all the gauges are in place.

 Prior to purchasing the Alfa in 1973, it was painted and the front bumper and side lights were removed along with the rear chrome spears. The original tool kit and jack were not with the car.

 I stopped driving the car to complete the restoration. Although parts were available for repair, the work is incomplete and will need to be finished.

 Note the following:

- A rust hole just rear of the driver's door.

- The drive gears in both window lifts need to be restore (verified by removing the driver's side window and lift mechanism). All parts were retained.

- The engine valves and valve guides were replaced, a suspension spring, and the propeller shaft flexible coupling and the oil pan were replaced.
