The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
In 1955, Alfa Romeo and Pininfarnia teamed up for yet another legendary collaboration: the 750 series Giulietta Spider. The coupé, unveiled in 1954, was designed by Bertone, but after seeing a demand for a convertible version, Alfa knew Pininfarina was the only design house for the job and what a job they did. The design of these Spiders is both handsome and sleek, with beautiful small fins flowing back from a rear fender that extends just slightly higher than the doorline. Split chrome front bumpers are the perfect accent on either side of the iconic Alfa Romeo shield-style grill. These car ooze style and grace, a testament to the coach built Italian sports car design era of the 1950s.
This early 1957 Giulietta was built on May 13th of that year and sold under the well known importer Hoffman Motor Cars on June 7th 1957. The car was born w/ beautiful Rosso paint and it retains its original 1300cc motor. On Feb 3rd 2016 Alfa Romeo's Marco Fazio of Centro Documentazione verified the car as numbers matching, built/sold dates, Hoffman pedigree, and original color.
This Spider was purchased in spring of 2017 and the owner commissioned CA famed Canepa Service Team to complete a comprehensive mechanical restoration in order for him to prepare the car for the Cooperstate 1000 road rally. The Giulietta would spend the next 9 months being meticulously rebuilt. All systems were disassembled and addressed. The motor and engine were removed, disassembled, and major components were tested, rebuilt or replaced as needed. The fuel system, brakes, suspension, electrical, charging, and differential were all inspected and parts renewed as needed. Over $70,000 was spent to ensure the Spider would be reliable and ready to be enjoyed for many years to come. All of the chrome was refinished and stainless was polished. The paint is good, driver quality and is the correct single stage type and Rosso color. The soft top is like new as are the carpets and rubber mats. The glass is all good showing no cracks or chips. The side windows are original and the windshield is a later German brand replacement. All gauges, lights, horn, heater, choke, and turn indicators function as designed.
This Giulietta is a dream to drive and the suspension is tight and feels like new. The brakes, clutch, gearbox, and throttle response are likewise new in feel and performance. This Spider beckons back to the simpler, more carefree days of traditional sports car motoring. Throw on a pair of comfy loafers, and leather gloves, and enjoy "La Dolce Vita"! Every automotive enthusiast should own an Alfa Romeo at some point in their life after all.
