Rust can’t win: 1964 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale

ScreenShot005

Of course rust often wins, but it has no chance to finish its work on a Sprint Speciale.

This Giulia has seen for sure better days: what we have here is a car neglected and cannibalized for decades before someone has spotted her somewere and so now she’s waiting for someone brave who’s willing to rescue the remaining metal and provide here with a lot of new or n.o.s spares.

The seller says that the floors are (surprisingly!) solid (but the lower sills have been removed) and that the car misses the seats and some chrome: these can be bought new as now there is a solid aftermarket choice for Alfa spares. The engine is still with the car (is it the original one, type 121?) but there is a long shopping list here. Less than 10 years ago you could have bought a top condition SS with the asking price of this car but, unfortunately, times are changed. Find it for sale at $36,000 here in New Milford, CT.

    Hi the alfa romeo ss engine code is 121 not 120
    The 120 is the giulietta ss engine

    I spoke with the seller at length. This car has been known to the SS Register for some time with all the correct numbers. What I didn’t have were the photographs to verify what it looked like. Also the seller might still have the Giulia Spider Veloce that came from the same owner. You could have a set of Giulia’s that are growing in significant value.

    Yes both cars (this and the Veloce) are fairly priced. Both they need a huge work but given the current values there is room for a full restoration job. Indeed I’m quite astonished to see the Veloce still for sale.
