This rare and desirable Alfa Romeo Giulia 1600 Spider Normale is anything BUT normal. We were particularly pleased to add this beautiful car to our inventory.

A verified 2 owner car, the originality of this vehicle is striking. The first owner sold the car after less than a year from new and it remained in the possession of the second for the last 47 years! With all matching numbers, original seats and carpets and only 51,493 miles driven, this car is not only beautiful but offers up a terrific driving experience as well.

An impeccably well documented history means we have copies of service work dating all the way back to 1966, when the car was regularly taken to the same two shops in New Jersey from the purchase date until 1986. Most notably, recent service includes a new canvas top around 1986 and in 2007, a complete engine rebuild including all lower and upper components, rebuilt carburettor and new clutch assembly. They also fit new tie rod ends on both sides, installed a new battery and replaced ignition components. Mileage on that service order shows 50,883… less than 1,000 miles have been accumulated since.

Also included with this vehicle were original keys and documents from the original sale including; Service Coupon Book; Alfa Romeo Instruction Book and a supplement from then VP, Arturo Reitz, titled “Enjoying Your Alfa.”

 

Sept 2nd 2013 Update

The buyer of the car commissioned us to perform restorative work to a poor frame repair done in the 1970’s. With the right rocker panel removed, it was apparent that the entire inner sill would require replacement as well as the frame segment in question. With our expert metal fabricator, all work was performed in-house as well as all new pieces hand fabricated to exact factory specifications. With the metal work complete, our painter performed an outstanding job of blending the newly restored section for a perfect match with the rest of the car. This is a beautiful and very well mannered and fun car. With a breath of new life in this classic Alfa, our client is sure to have many thrilling miles and memories yet to come.

Pictures in the gallery were updated to include a step-by-step documentation of the full repair.
