AR 10120*00339 engine: AR00120*00611 (original to this car) I purchased this 1960 Alfa Giulietta SS from a friend that bought the car in 1983. He drove it a few years and then in 1987 decided to restore it. As many times happens, a restoration project grows in scope and time passes. Twenty years later the car has not been completed and my friend decided he wanted to do something else with his life. A lot of the work has already been done and much money spent, but the car still requires some assembly. As can been seen from the photos the car was completely disassembled. Some rust was repaired and the body painted silver lacquer. The engine, transmission, differential, suspension, and brakes were professionally rebuilt and are back in the car. Most of the other components, including front bumpers, have been done and are waiting re-assembly. Of course the car came with boxes of parts! I was not looking for another project as I already have too many cars and some are requiring my attention. Still, the quality of the work that has already been done on this Alfa looks very good and I've always found the shape of the Sprint Speciale intriguing. Another big plus is that the interior is original and in good condition. I like cars with patina. My intent is to sell this Alfa either as is or completely restored. Contact me for the price, which will be based on how much work is still left to be done. As you can see on this website work is progressing quickly and I expect to be completed by the end of May, or June. I have a lot of receipts, original manuals, old photos and the parts to complete the car. Some trim pieces should be chromed and a few new parts purchased but I have the glass, rubber gaskets, original wheels and trim pieces to complete the car. If you are interested in the car, either as is or finished, send an e-mail to ivan@thecarnut.com and let's talk. This is a very unique car with potentially a racing history, and it deserves a good home March 23, 2009. The car has been home for a few weeks. The first task was to go through all the boxes and figure out what everything is. Since the prior owner (PO) disassembled a Guilia SS there are duplicated of some of the trim pieces. The pieces from the Giulia may look like they would fit, but in the best Italian coachwork fashion ... they will not. Therefore not only do I need to figure out where they go but which one actually came from this car. To add to the excitement there are a few Alfa 2600 parts included to really confuse me! I am happy to report that I've got mostly figured out. The rear bumper and lights have been re-installled. I took the doors off, made adjustments and they close properly with good gaps.. Radiator is intalled. I installed some temporary radiator hoses to that the engine can be tested. Speedo and tach cables are in. Air, throttle and mixture dash cables are in. I loosely fitted the exterior chrome trims to make sure everything was accounted for. The interior is original. Unfortunately a few of the carpet pieces show heavy wear and I need to find some matching carpeting and vinyl. I would like to keep the car as original as possible as it is too good to replace. My goal is to restore it the way they do historical buildings ... only replace what is absolutely necessary.

Sold for $82,500 at 2013 Gooding & Company.

The Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale made its debut in 1957 at the Turing Auto Salon on October 30th. The coupe wore a forward-thinking design from Carrozzeria Bertone which was clearly inspired by the mid-1950s Berlina Aerodinamica Technica - show cars created by Bertone to study aerodynamics.

Just 1,366 examples of the Sprint Speciales were built between 1957 and 1962.

This example was delivered new in Italy and subsequently imported to the United States. A thorough restoration began in 1987 and was completed in 2012. It total, more than $25,000 was spent on the vehicle in the last four years of the work. Since the work was completed, it has traveled just a few hundred miles.

Power is from a 1290cc dual overhead cam four-cylinder engine fitted with dual Weber Sidedraft carburetors. The 116 horsepower produced by the powerplant is sent to the rear wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox. Drum brakes are at all four corners.

In 2013, this car was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company Auction held in Amelia Island, Florida. It was estimated to sell for $120,000 - $140,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $82,500 inclusive of buyer's premium. By Daniel Vaughan | Apr 2013

RM AUCTION WEBSITE:
To be OFFERED AT AUCTION at Auctions America's Fort Lauderdale event, March 27-29, 2015.Estimate:$ 90,000 - $120,000 Almost any car has its share of interesting features, and some, naturally, are more exciting than others. Occasionally a car is introduced that is widely considered to be extra special. This was the response to the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale. According to period relevant Road & Track magazines, the Giulietta Sprint Speciale was launched in 1958 at the Turin Auto Show. It represented a stunning design that was clearly derived from the futuristic Berlina Aerodinamica Tecnica, or B.A.T., show cars that had been created by Carrozzeria Bertone in the mid-1950s. The amazingly aerodynamic design boasts a drag coefficient of only .29, which is particularly low, even by today's standards. Those aerodynamic studies led to what seemed a perfect solution to a competition version of the Bertone-bodied Giulietta Sprint Veloce. However, the Sprint Speciale proved to be a bit heavy for the task, and instead, it became a stylish road car, adding a sizable amount of grand touring flash to the entry-level Alfa Romeo line. As with all Giulietta Sprint Speciales, this car is equipped with the effective 1.3-liter, Veloce-specification twin-cam, four-cylinder engine, which has twin two-barrel Weber carburetors that put out 116 horsepower. A five-speed manual gearbox is connected to this powerplant. Even with a fully equipped interior, the Sprint Speciale has been constructed with lightweight construction and competition in mind, and it was considerably rapid. Reportedly, only 1,366 were produced by the time the model concluded in 1962. This particular car has been subjected to an excellent restoration, making the car ideal of both showing and touring. This Sprint Speciale is reported to have been delivered new in Italy and was subsequently imported into the United States. A complete and thorough restoration was initially undertaken in 1987 and completed in 2012. The last five years has seen the majority of the work carried out, and since the completion, it has been driven sparingly. Among the extensive work that has been completed is a rebuild of the original engine by Radcliffe Motorcar Company northwest of Baltimore. Other tasks that have been completed includes cleaning and rebuilding the carburetors, all exterior chrome being refreshed, plus the door panels and dashboard vinyl were re-installed in a great effort to preserve originality. The braking system has been refurbished and a new N.O.S. 101 head has been fitted. Additional features include the installation of new dome lights, period-correct floor mats, new emblems and data plates, as well as new grille blades and a new battery. Accompanying the Sprint Speciale are extensive receipts and service records which document much of the restoration work. The Sprint Speciale is one of the most attractive Alfa Romeos of its era. It is a car that is at home on any vintage rally, and it always stands out, even among the most elite of sports-racing cars. As a road car, the Sprint Speciale is ideal: fast, comfortable, safe and economical. You'll have the knowledge that you own a rare automobile from a highly regarded and respected Italian firm. Presented here is an example ready to be driven with enjoyment on any twisting mountain route, open desert road, or lazy country drive. This Giulietta Sprint Speciale adds to that a level of restoration that ensures it will turn heads wherever it may appear. LOT NUMBER: FL15_r0078
