Taller than usual: 1961 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale


The seller says that this Giulietta SS has been sold new in Italy and then it was finally imported in UK, where it lives since many years. What it’s clearly visible is that this car is quite tall on the wheels, definitely taller than usual and we can’t understand why.


Indeed the seller provides many photos of the car but curiously no photo of the undercarriage. Said so, he says that this car was originally smoke grey ann that the actual status of the body is average: there are some ding and blisters which warn you that a few work on the body is needed. Interiors are not bad: the leather is quite good bu we suspect that this was not the original equipment.


The engine is not original: the seller says that the actual engine is a 1600 unit (probably not from a Giulia SS) and that this was a usual period upgrade: we absolutely don’t agree with him. Finding a correct engine for this car will not be easy, so do your math before doing the big step. Find it for sale at £42,995 (today $69,000) here in Mereworth, UK.
