A different heart: 1962 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Veloce


Differently from the 750 series, it’s harder to distinguish a normal Giulia Sprint from a Veloce. The 750 was immediatly recognizable from the Perspex windows: it indeed had a more aggressive and racing-oriented look. The 101 is more a grand tourer, even if with the heart of a proper Alfa.


The seller doesn’t specify if this car is an almost-preserved or a restored car: the first impression is however of a very clean and correct Veloce. The engine looks correct (the seller says it’s a matchig number car even if we all know that you hardly can speak of a “Matching numbers” Alfa) and the original run in sticker on the screen is a very nice touch.


Interiors too look correct like, basically, the entire car: this could hav not the “noble” heritage of a 750 Veloce, but it’s anyway a rare pearl of the Alfa Romeo past. We find that the price, considering rarity and conditions, is fair. Find it for sale at €45,000 (today $62,000) here in Trieste, Italy.
