The other stepnose: 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTC by Touring

When you hear of an Alfa “stepnose” the first car that comes to your mind is not a cabriolet for sure. In this case, what we have here is one of the few Giulia Sprint GT cabriolet built by Touring.

Our literature says that 1,000 of these cars were made, mostly sold out of Italy as there these cars were not much appreciated: indeed this car comes from U.S.A. with all its parts (as the seller says), including its engine and gearbox. The color should be the “Verde Muschio” shade.

The restoration here is not an easy job: the GTC chassis was indeed modified to improve the structural stiffness jeopardized by the lack of the roof: many steel reinforcement were applied, especially along the sills, the gearbox tunnel and around the rear wheel wells. At least the soft top frame is there, and that is a very important asset for a proper restoration. Anyway, the car is plenty of rust and it will be not an easy job as a lot a metal must be replaced. If you’re strong enough to face all this effort, find it for sale at €20,000 (today $27,000) o.b.o. here in Poviglio, Italy.
