1959 ALFA ROMEO GIULIETTA Sprint - £49,995
History of this car
First registered new in Sicily on 16.7.1959 this Tipo 750B remained with the original owner until 2011, at which point it had been off road and stored unused for some 20 years. The next owner from 2011-15 set about transforming this Sprint into the amazing car we have here today, a tribute to a period privateers road/race Alfa Romeo.
Our Sprint was a competitor in the 2017 Monte Pellegrino Historic.
Over 50,000 was spent , on parts alone, including a genuine numbered Veloce motor, new old stock Conrero engine parts, original TZ tachometer, original SZ inlet manifold and much, much more; the mechanical build was completed by an old school master mechanic, and this Alfa delivers a driving experience like no other.
Our car has great charm and greater performance and is suitable for a number of events or just fun and fast road use.
The car is sold UK registered with an age related registration.
Our Sprint has a superb paint job which would put many far more expensive cars to shame. It is the original Rosso colour and presents with a thin high gloss, no orange peel, and no marks. The chassis is arrow straight and there is no rust or accident damage on this car.
We have pictures of the car prior to the works being done, and this car appears never to have had a body restoration.
The glass and what little external trim is fitted is excellent, and SV badging is fitted throughout.
Our Sprint has an incredible specification:
Genuine numbered Sprint Veloce 1300cc engine sourced and completely rebuilt using new old stock Conrero cams, valves bespoke made from Conrero original drawings, three angle seats, ported and polished, Cosworth pistons, all new bearings, seals, water pump, distributor and ignition system plus OE GTA type oil cap/breather and original TZ inlet manifold. Less than 1000 klms have been completed so the motor is still breaking in.
