Ready for treatment: 1963 Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint

Restoring a car is a path that can have different degrees of difficulty, linked both to the condition of the car and to the availability of spare parts: sometimes it can be a real ordeal.

And someone who has bought a real Giulia Spider wreckage to restore it tells you, they have been looking good for two years now and we are just starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel: we hope it is not an oncoming train. Seriously, if the car is in a very bad condition, a restoration (done well) can be a real feat, even for those cars that have a wide availability of spare parts.

And anyway, originality always wins so starting from a complete car is always an important advantage. The 2600 Sprint published here appears to be a very complete car and in very good condition, i.e. not in gear and not damaged. It also has a very nice red / parchment color scheme and a paint that, although old, doesn’t look bad at all. There are no photos of the engine compartment but let’s assume it is complete as well as the rest of the car. Find it for sale at €25,000 (today $28,000) here in Milano, Italy.
