Ready for the job: 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider Veloce


This is of of 1091 cars made because, other than being a Giulia Spider, it carries (at least once) the badge “Veloce”.


That means that the engine of these cars was modified to be moe powerful: it actually was the same unit installed on the Giulia Sprint Speciale and that means different camshafts, a couple of Weber DCOE2 (very expensive, when you find them), a bigger sump with a modifed oil pump and in some cases steel rods instead of the cast iron ones.


This particular car, although disassembled, looks in pretty good conditions: there’s rust in some areas – of course it’s an Alfa – but, as the seller says too, it seems solid and never crashed. The seller says also that the engine is the correct one, however many parts are in boxes and so they should be checked. Find it for sale at $35,000 here in Tangent, OR.

  1. This is a real Spider Veloce of which there are about 300 known survivors to date. I suspect by the chassis number this is a late March or Early April production car. The potential in this car as a rare collectible is good. I hope it goes to a good home ao be put back on the road.


  2. I sent an email to the Craigslist address and have no response yet. I asked for a chassis number photo to verify and previous ownership. This is better than most as it appears it is all there other than what the advertiser says is missing. Considering the rarity, this has a lot of value.
