Red project: 1958 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Veloce

It’s amazing how, despite the cleanup of all the barns and backyards done in the last 15 years, cars like this still pop out.

This Giulietta Spider Veloce swb (chassis AR1495F.09918), certainly the most coveted of the series together with its bigger sister Giulia, was in fact taken off the road in 1969 and bought by the current owner in 2018 who certainly intended to restore it but evidently some things have changed, and now it is for sale in the same condition in which it was purchased.

It is an excellent starting point, with a little rust (obviously, for an Alfa from the 50s and 60s) but it is the minimum possible for a Giulietta Spider that has never been restored: we ourselves have seen cars like this literally split in half because of corrosion, and this car is a long way from that. It seems that there is everything except one thing, not really negligible: the engine is no longer the original one. Correct engines can be found (at a high price, if we consider that a couple of Weber DCO3 carburettors alone are sold for up to $10,000), so it’s a matter – as always – of money. Find it for sale at $30,000 here in Morristown, NJ.

  1. This car has been for sale for some time, as I have it listed in the Veloce Register. Looks like the price is set to move it to someone else. I know where to find an engine and parts if that helps someone.
