1962 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint
Spotted in Gardena California is a 1962 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint for $43,500 USD. This is a late-production, true Giulietta Sprint with the transition body shell and chassis numbering system used on the later Giulia Sprints. Originally a German delivery car, it made its way to Arkansas sometime prior to 1973 and then into the hands of a long-term owner in Oklahoma until 2005. Under the current owner, the car was subject to a bare metal restoration to a high-level, but not “show level” standard, in 2007.
Rust was limited to lower quarter panels, door openings, a small area of the trunk and small areas in footwells, and all known rust areas were replaced with new metal. Single-stage urethane paint was sourced in a period-correct shade of light blue. Paint and body are still showing nicely with flaws limited to very small chipping in the area of the door jambs. Engine and brakes were rebuilt in 2007-2008 and the car has been driven less than 4000 miles since. Most other major mechanical components have also been replaced or rebuilt in recent years except the suspension, which was left untouched. Although the factory records are incomplete, a conversation with previous owner and other evidence indicate the car has its original engine and drivetrain, the strongest clue being FUSI lists the engine number as late-1961, and the car was manufactured in January 1962.
All attempts were made to keep the car in an ‘as delivered” configuration with no upgrades to any component. Where possible, original parts (vs. repo ) were sourced to complete the restoration, the main exceptions being the exhaust, generator, and distributor which were replaced out of practicality. Extra attention was paid to getting all gauges, lights and accessories to work properly. Only the windshield wash system and high beam idiot light are inoperative. Instrument back-lights were upgraded to LEDs for better illumination. The car runs, handles, and stops very well.
