Almost Pebble: 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider Veloce


The seller of this ’65 Spider Veloce says hat this car has been completely restored to a Pebble Beach level also thanks to new parts coming from Italy.


Indeed the car looks beautiful: the red paint shines, the soft top looks perfect and the interiors look very nice and correct; the seats in particular are very well made especially along the stitchings, the dashboard is perfect and the carpets are correct also in the trunk.


There are, however, some mistakes: the colored piping on the seats have been made up to 1960 and they don’t belong at all to the Giulia; the rear exhaust tip looks like the ones commonly seen on modern japanese cars, the wheels are nice but not original. Then the engine: apart from the black coat on the cam cover which is not correct, we read that the engine displacement is 1750: does it mean it is not original or is it just a typo? Find it for sale at $85,000 here in Windsor, Canada.
