Grey calls red: 1966 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT Veloce

Update, october 19

One day has been way enough to sell this car. That’s what we call “a quick sale”.

October 18

Apart from GTA’s, the GTV is the rarest model of the Giulia Sprint GT breed: they made it for only two years (’66 and ’67) and in less units than the first series 1750 GTV, so this model is very desiderable. Differently from the “normal” Giulia it had different cams profiles and a slightly larger intake valves. From the outside, the Veloce was recognizable by the three bars on the grille and by the “veloce” badge on the rear end.

This particular car is said to have 97,000 kms from new and to have benefitted by a general overhaul. The engine bay is very clean and looks correct: even the green spark wires are the correct ones. We wonder if that engine is still the correct “536” for this model.

Interiors are less correct than the rest of the car, but the defects are light: the steering wheel and the gear lever knob must be replaced as they aren’t original; the seats are correct for a Veloce as well as the door panels which are disassembled but in the car. We like the color combo: a rare “Grigio Medio Metallizzato” (metallic medium grey) with a red leather interior: striking. Also the period gold aftermarket rims looks nice on it. If you like this car then hurry up: it won’t last long. Find it for sale at €15,000 (today $20,500) here in Pistoia, Italy.
