About this Alfa Romeo Giulietta
By the 1950s, Alfa Romeo had an enviable reputation as a manufacturer of incredibly successful racing cars and stunning road cars. This reputation was developed over successive decades and resulted in wins in the most iconic road races, including the Mille Miglia and Targa Florio. Alfa Romeo could also boast that the world’s best drivers, including Tazio Nuvolari, Giuseppe “Nino” Farina, and Juan Manuel Fangio, had won races in its cars.
It was with this backdrop that Alfa Romeo set the standard for meeting the high expectations of its customers. With each of its models very well received, the real stand-outs throughout its history were its glamorous convertibles, including the 6C 250 SS Spider.
In 1954, Alfa Romeo introduced the 1.3-litre Giulietta, establishing its reputation for producing small cars with “big performance”, and this reputation has continued to this day with the recently launched 4C. Such was the success of the Giulietta, whose introduction caused a sensation, that Alfa was forced to change its whole ethos and become, for the first time, a high-volume manufacturer. The Berlina and Spider versions quickly joined the original Giulietta Sprint Coupé of 1954, and the spider benefitted from simple and elegant coachwork designed and built by Pininfarina. In 750 series form, the Veloce Spider came with an up-rated engine that was equipped with dual Weber carburettors and could produce a healthy 90 brake horsepower, which was 10 horsepower higher than the standard engine. The Giulietta Veloce enjoys the honour of being the best performing and most developed open variant of the 1300 line.
This fully restored 1958 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider (750) - Chassis No: AR149503594 and Engine No: AR131541567 is according to the Certificato Di Origine a 'matching numbers' car and was built in Italy on 15th February 1958 and exported to New York where it was sold by the Hoffman Motor Car Company in New York and first registered on 5th March 1958. It has its original and fully rebuilt 90bhp, 1,290cc DOHC inline four-cylinder engine with dual Weber 40 DCO3 carburettors, five-speed manual gearbox, independent coil-spring front suspension, live rear axle coil-spring suspension, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.
The car was purchased by the last Italian owner in 1992 and taken back to Italy where it remained in his collection until it underwent a complete restoration which started in 2015 and was eventually finished in 2017. All works were carried out by a renowned specialist in Italy - Carrozzeria Renzo Tullj and the car has covered 2,000 since it was finished.
The engine, gearbox and rear axle were all rebuilt and it had a total body restoration with over 250 photographs of the works plus all brightwork was re-chromed, the interior, including the seats, carpets, soft top and all electrics are all in perfect condition and the car has an Italian ASI gold plate!
Since the restoration was finished, the car has only covered 2,206 miles as indicated on the MPH Speedometer (was reading 97,300 miles before the restoration) and it really is in exceptional condition and drives beautifully. These Giulietta's really are beautiful cars and prices have risen tremendously over the last few years, so it should be a good investment for its new owner.
A full set of photographs will follow upon completion of our showroom preparation and we are just in the process of registering the car with the DVLA.
Upon sale, the car will come with our own customer care package including a 55-point pre-delivery inspection, new MOT and our own 6 months mechanical breakdown Parts & Labour Warranty which can be upgraded and extended at additional cost if required.
