Introduced in 1956, the Giulietta Spider Veloce featured hotter cams, higher compression and a pair of Weber dual choke carburetors which boosted output to 90 horsepower at 6,500 rpm - well more than one horsepower per cubic inch.

Alfa's unit-body chassis also addressed the age old problem of managing a live rear axle by incorporating alloy components to reduce weight and stabilizing axle location with trailing arms and a differential-mounted triangular trailing link.

The Giulietta was one the best handling cars of the 1950s and so good that its basic design persisted in the Alfa Spider into the early 1990s.

The car on offer has been certified by the Centro Documentazione Alfa Romeo that the engine number and chassis number match and correspond to an Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Veloce, manufactured on July 18, 1957

and sold to Hoffman Motor Car of New York on December 17, 1957 (therefore, the first registration of the car was in 1958).

The Giulietta has been finished in powder blue (Azzurro Celeste) with black vinyl interiors. The car has black cloth convertible top in good condition. There is no radio, only the factory blanking plate.

Mostly correct car, other than the dash is not painted body color (the car was originally black), the Petronix electronic ignition and later style exhaust. The paint is not concours but is in good shape for a driver car.

As far as we can tell, there is no rust visible in any location. Car needs a little body work at the lower front facia (damage with a higher than expected curb). It was repaired, but is not perfect.

She has been professionally maintained with the best Alfa mechanic in the Phoenix area. The engine was rebuilt on August 2007 (4,000 miles ago) with Veloce Rods, oversized rod bearings, oversized main bearings and P & L kit -74.5 mm.

New 750 series generator pulley on September 2007. On May of 2008, the Brake system was overhaul with a new Girling Master cylinder. In October of 2008 the head was re-torque (as specified, due to the engine overhaul).

The Transmission was completely rebuild on January of 2009.

This beauty is in very good condition, it is a pleasure to drive, and regretfully I need to let her go.
