Throughout history, most major automakers have one vehicle that really set them down a path of ultimate success. For the little Italian automaker Alfa Romeo, it was the Giulietta that took them from a niche automotive company who dabbled in racing to a household name selling fun little cars the world around. Introduced in 1954 and remaining in production until 1965 the little 1.3-liter engined Giulietta was available in numerous body styles to suit the taste of the consumer. Although every Giulietta produced used the same 1.3-liter twin cam aluminum block engine, they were tuned slightly differently depending on their application. The Giulietta Sprint, available from 1954 until 1962, utilized an 8.5:1 compression ratio and 1 downdraught twin-choke carburetor to produce 79 bhp at 6300 rpm. These cars could however, be order in Veloce spec which replace the single downdraught carb with 2 sidedraught twin-choke carburetors and bumped the compression to 9.1:1 for a total of 89 bhp at 6500 rpm. By 1965 more than 100,000 Giuliettas had rolled off the assembly line and the beloved little car was replaced by the restyled and slightly more powerful Giulia.

This particular Giulietta Sprint, chassis number AR149321069 and engine number AR0010602727, was built in 1959 but titled in 1960, making it a 101 interim Sprint that has since been upgraded to Veloce specifications. Due to the upgrade, the car is no longer numbers matching but the added desirability of the Veloce spec engine alleviates the worry of not having a numbers matching car. The car is currently finished in the original colors of White exterior and Blue/White interior. This Sprint spent a good portion of its life on the West Coast, leaving it in a nice dry condition. When the current owner received the car around 2014 it was said to have been half original paint, inline with its dry west coast heritage. The owner decided to complete a sympathetic restoration, being sure to leave many mark of originality with the car. The restoration entailed a thorough sorting and included many different items including but not limited too: redoing the seats and a few other interior components, a new set of stainless steel bumpers, rebuilding both the engine and trans, going through the braking system, replacing most of the rubber components and rechroming many pieces of the car. All told the restoration totaled over $20,000 and left the car in fantastic condition. The interior is essentially half original with the door cards, dash, gauges, steering wheel and much of the components remaining original. For a better idea of the undertakings of this sympathetic restoration please see the provided documentation below. This car has been well cared for throughout its life and currently sits in fantastic condition both mechanically and cosmetically with excellent bits of originality sprinkled throughout. It is immediately ready to be shown and thoroughly enjoyed. Included with the sale of the car are the jack, a space and various documentation from the cars lifetime.
