This 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider Veloce was acquired by the seller and their spouse in 1998 and refurbished over the following few years. The body was refinished in white, a replacement black convertible top was added, the interior was reupholstered in black vinyl, and the 1.6L twin-cam inline-four was rebuilt. Subsequent work in 2013 involved rebuilding the dual Weber carburetors as well as the brake master cylinder, front calipers, and rear wheel cylinders. Shifting is via a five-speed manual transmission, and further equipment includes Fergat 15″ wheels, a Kenwood cassette radio, and Veglia instrumentation. This 101-Series Spider Veloce is now offered with partial service records, refurbishment photos, a 1998 appraisal document, and a clean Texas title in the name of the seller’s spouse.

The 101-Series chassis was announced in 1959 as an evolution of the 750 platform and featured a lengthened wheelbase, larger rear lights, fixed side wing windows, and a stepped hood. The Pinin Farina–styled body of this example was repainted white and fitted with a replacement black soft top as part of the aforementioned refurbishment completed under current ownership. A bullet-style left-side mirror, chrome bumpers, and 1600 Veloce badging are further details. The rear window is clouded, the right-side reverse light is inoperable, and close-up photos of blemishes in the paint are provided in the gallery below.

Fergat 15″ wheels wear bright hubcaps and are mounted with 185/65 Pirelli P4000 Super Touring tires that the seller states are in need of replacement. The brake master cylinder, front calipers, and rear wheel cylinders were rebuilt in 2013, at which time the sway bar bushings were replaced.

The low-back bucket seats have been reupholstered in black vinyl and are accompanied by a color-coordinated upper dashboard pad, door panel inserts, and carpets. Further appointments include a Kenwood cassette radio, a cabin heater, and lap belts.

The three-spoke steering wheel fronts Veglia instrumentation consisting of a central 8k-rpm tachometer with an inset oil pressure gauge flanked by a 140-mph speedometer and a combination gauge for fuel level, oil temperature, and coolant temperature. The five-digit odometer shows 46k miles, less than 1k of which were added under current ownership.

The 1.6L twin-cam inline-four was overhauled during the refurbishment and is equipped with a Bosch ignition coil. The fuel sending unit and dual Weber carburetors were rebuilt in 2013, at which time the valve cover gasket was replaced along with the fuel tank, pump, and filter.

Power is delivered to the rear wheels via a five-speed manual transmission. Additional underside photos are provided in the image gallery.

A binder containing service records, photos from the refurbishment process, and an appraisal from 1998 will accompany the car.
