This is another example about how we are just custodian of these cars, which will survive to us for many years to come.
This Giulia Spider Veloce has been bought by a US serviceman in Vienna back in 1966, and then he carried this car home in central US. probably that soldier is not anymore on this world but his beloved car is still here, searching for the next custodian who will take care of her.
A lot of care indeed, as the car needs a complete restoration: a lot of rust everywhere but still it has the shape of a car: the engine is disassembled but the seller says that it’s the original one: by the way this is one of the last Giulia Spider so it has a five speed gearbox and front disc brakes. The seller has posted a lot of photos on Picasa so enjoy the slideshow here. If you are interested, find it for sale at £21,900 (today $33,700) here in Uxbridge, MA.
One thought on “Tougher than life: 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider Veloce”
This car is one of only 1091 built between 1964 and 1965. There are less than half still surviving. Given those numbers there is great potential for future increase in value. Most everything is available except for the Veloce script on the trunk lid.
The chassis number and engine number are most important to know whether this is a ’64 or ’65. The Bertone number in the trunk is of interest as well to know where this came off the fabrication line. This is a great price for this car, depending upon the extent of the rust.
