The die is cast: 1959 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider


Here it is one of the very last SWB Giulietta Spider (chassis AR1495.06512): indeed not many know that there was been an “interim” series of Giulietta Spider which, although badged “750” and featured by small headlights, had already a long wheelbase and you can easily spot these car by the presence of the wing windows. These cars were produced starting from the middle ’59 until the early ’60.


This, on the contrary, is a “real” SWB Giulietta spider in a very classic color for this model: white with red (or black) interiors was one of the most chosen color combo back in the late fifties. The car has been repaint and interiors have been upholstered recently as you can see.


The engine is not original: it’s a actually a quite rare type 536 which belonged to a Giulia Sprint GT Veloce; so at least you’ll have a powerful unit under the hood. The seller says that he decided to sell this cars after much deliberation after eight years of ownership and we perfectly understand him: it’s not easy to part with a Giulietta Spider especially if you live in a warm place. This is not a concours car but a machine which can be enjoyed as is for many years to come: we believe that the price is “right” as well even if the car has some defects. Find it for sale at $48,000 here in Sunnyvale, CA.
