Rough racer: 1961 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale

g1

This Giulietta SS is, or at least looks like, an american delivery car that have been clearly raced in the past, even though the interiors are still in the original shape.

The nice feature of this SS, of course, is that it is equipped with a set of Borrani wire wheels: you might like it of not but sure is that it’s a valuable options and also pretty rare on these cars; by the way the wire wheels were not an Alfa option but they were installed by dealers upon customer’s request.

The car needs clearly to be restored: the seller says that the original color was white with blue interiors: these are correct but the actual paint isn’t; there are no photos of the engine bay or the trunk but the overall conditions of the car are absolutely nice. Find it for sale at €110,000 (today $135,000) here in Udine, Italy.

    Holy cow that asking number is ridiculous. I have a matching numbers car, exact year make and model restored to concours condition original Bluette color, for $185,000.00 in the US.
    What is that seller thinking?

    Hi Kelly, yes I think too that’s overpriced, on the other side consider that the cost of a full restoration in Italy, given the same quality, it’s at least the 30% less than a US specialist. This, along with a bit of price negotiation, can bring the deal on tracks.

    That’s an option for sure! Unfortunately here in Italy, for every car imported from a no-EU country, we must add a 30% more of taxes.

  5. I wrote to the seller asking for the basic information to verify the car and no response. Anyone know the chassis and engine number?

    Not sure if this posted so trying again. But as far as shipping the car to Italy from the US. It can be shipped to Rotterdam and go through customs there. Taxes are only 6%.

    Hi Kelly, yes I knew that trick, however as far as i know only a dealer with a subsidiary in Netherlands can do that. Indeed some do it.

    The shipping company I use to ship cars to Europe takes care of everything. We always ship into the UK or Rotterdam. Just sold a car to France which is super difficult to get through customs there so Rotterdam is the port we are using.
