A very desirable Giulietta Sprint Veloce that came out of a long-term California ownership, this car is an excellent example of high-quality restoration projects that Stephen finds regularly. With a very dry and straight body, the previous owner began a restoration with new paint (correct Alfa Red), upholstery and a rebuild of the engine. The original engine block was unavailable but original Veloce parts were paired with a Normale block to complete the project. This vehicle came with a non-matching Veloce engine block which was identified as having been produced in 1960. The 4-speed gearbox was present along with the fuel tank, wiring harness and gauges. Carpets, radio, driveshaft, head/tail lamps and front bumper were not present, although we have an in-house supply of many of these items.
One of only 539 cars produced in 1960, this late 750E was originally sold in Padua, Italy, before making its way to the States. A well preserved example, these cars are extremely rare now with an estimated 150 Sprint Veloce cars remaining… or roughly %5 of the 3,058 cars EVER produced!
With many original parts included, this is the ideal restoration candidate for the discerning Alfa enthusiast. Classic looks, proven racing heritage and a steadily appreciating value make the Giulietta Sprint Veloce one of the most sought-after vehicles on the market today. Originally outperforming the higher displacement Porsche 356′s in Mille Miglia, the Giulietta Sprint Veloce is not only remarkably beautiful but an ultra rare and pedigreed classic… NOT an underdog!
