Classic Car Overview
Chequered Flag International Inc is pleased to offer this 1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Veloce in Red with Black interior and top. Below is essentially what the previous seller wrote about this car:- The example offered here is a technically a 750 Series Alfa Rome Giulietta Spider Veloce. According to the Centro Documentazione Alfa Romeo, this example, chassis # AR149510115 and engine # AR0010600278 was produced on the 30th of May, 1960, and was sold via Hoffman Motor Car on the 27th June, 1960. It has been verified as a true Veloce, and was manufactured as it is offered today - in Red with Black interior. This particular example is interesting in that it has a mix of 750 and 101 Series features, and is what is referred to as an interim car. It is a 750 Series car as per its chassis number but has many of the 101 series updates such as vent windows and a 5-speed transmission. Exact ownership history is unfortunately unknown prior to 1968. We can document that it sold into the ownership of a Pennsylvania owner on March 16th, 1968, where it remained until its most recent owner of nearly 25 years acquired it on August 1990. Prior to his acquisition it receive a total restoration in the late 1980s including a total strip and repaint in the original color. At this time a new top, interior and refinished bright work were installed. The car still shows this quality restoration today, the workmanship at the time of completion was superb. The paint is still excellent, its very consistent, smooth, deep, and with only minute defects. The body is completely straight with good trunk, hood, and door fitment and gaps. The bright work is excellent throughout with only the windscreen and quarter window frames original and therefore with minor blemishes. The top appears to be new and fits very well. The windscreen wipers are of the correct type as are all of the lenses and trim pieces. Receipts present with the car show documented service since 1990. Over the period of only 9,883 miles nearly $8,200 has been spent keeping it up to date and turn-key. It has also been carefully enjoyed, stored, and as such the work completed in the late 1980s could easily pass for a few years old, it is excellent. We have just had the engine fully rebuilt (in progress). This Veloce shows an impressive interior with new and very correct carpeting/mats. Excellent original gauges, steering wheel, knobs, and PF emblem on the dash (with the exception of a speedo replaced with one that reads in Kilometers) Behind the drivers compartment shows the correct and original Borrani wheel with original tire still mounted, original leather straps, jack, and a cover for the top when stowed. All switches work properly. This car is completely in order and turn-key. Starts with ease, naturally cold-blooded it gets better as temperature builds. Once warm the throttle response is excellent and the sound and performance at the higher RPM is superb and as expected from a well restored Veloce. The clutch, brakes, steering, and suspension all operate without fault, are very tight, and responsive. Overall this Veloce has excellent road manners, a joy to drive, and shows great oil pressure at all times with absolutely no smoke. The engine bay is tidy and very clean for a 25 year old restoration. Still show worthy but very much a driver that can be toured without worrying. The correct/rebuilt Moretti Magnelli distributor and starter are still installed. However, the generator is a bosch type unit, the original and correct Moretti Magnelli unit will be included with the sale. We have also noted a new hood pad and newer hoses as part of this cars up-to-date service. Overall the engine bay is very clean, correct, and needs no attention to be enjoyed at this time. The trunk is another great indication of this cars history as a solid example. The trunk shows many factory spot welds in all of the correct places, is straight, clean, and shows well with the correct mat also in place. The undercarriage still retains its factory undercoating. The floors are the originals and are totally solid with no rust replacement evident. The other chassis members, rockers, inner fender wells, front valence are all rust free and appear to always have been. The underside is consistent with this examples showith driver quality theme, it is used but well serviced, not concurs clean but driven. Offered as correct and genuine this Veloce is sure to offer its new owner years of enjoyment as a superb investment and a great tour ready driver. As Normale prices continue to climb these much rarer specification Veloces may soon climb out of reach. The Jack, spare, and all available records are also included.
