The Giulietta, nd later the Giulia are the cars that took Alfa Romeo from being a relatively small production company to being an economically viable and successful firm. Prior to that, hey had produced large and expensive cars, nd never in very large numbers. With the Giulietta/Giulia, owever, lfa Romeo produced significant numbers of these charming and capable cars. Its success was due in part to its unique placement in the market. It was neither a large hugely expensive car, or was it very small utility car (such as the Fiat 500). Instead, hey were affordable enough so that many could buy them, et permitted a more glamorous and useful approach to motoring that really struck a chord with buyers on both sides of the Atlantic. The GiuliettaVeloce enjoys the honor of being the highest performing and most developed open variant of the 1300cc line, hanks to its venerable twin cam engine, win Weber carburetors, igher compression ratio, nd hotter cam profiles. Performance was much improved over the standard cars.
This particular car is a genuine Veloce that has been fitted with a 1600cc motor. The current owner is an enthusiastic longtime Alfa owner, ho has spent considerable time and money sorting the car in the last year or so. This has included new Weber DCOE40 carburetors, ew head gasket, alve adjustment, une up, lignment, ew idler arm, mergency brake adjustment, isceallaneous electrical repairs (to get all lights, auges, ipers, and horn working), ew battery, ew exhaust system, ew rear axle bearing, ew tires, ew brakes, ew ignition switch, ew hood pad, nd new tonneau cover. The majority of the mechanical work was performed by Jim Cestarollo of Alfaman in Novato. During this period, e has also driven the car nearly 1500 miles and is a well-sorted and attractive top-tier driver at this time.
The car has nice driver level cosmetics, ith attractive paintwork over a straight and solid body. There are a few minor surface blemishes and chips, ut the overall impression the car makes is strong. Most of the chrome is in very good condition, ith minor swirls. The door handles and trunk handle both display some pitting. The lights and glass are in excellent shape and the car is equipped with Cibié headlamps. The wheels are in good condition and wear Vredestein Sprint Classic tires. The car wears yellow California Year of Manufacture plates.
The interior is excellent overall. Aside from a small (1 inch) spit in the driver’s seam, he upholstery is excellent. The carpets are also very nice, s are the rubber floor mats. The dashboard is in nice shape, nd the instruments are excellent, ith none of the yellowing that typically affects these cars. The steering wheel is also very nice, ith a few hairline cracks to the steering wheel rim and an excellent horn button.
The engine compartment is tidy and well-maintained in appearance. It is not quite detailed for show, ut is extremely clean and about as nice as one would want for a driver. The trunk was repainted at some point and a new rubber floor mat fitted as well.
The car comes with numerous spare parts including a 1300 block, ylinder head, istons, onnecting rods, ard top, CO3 carburetors, nd miscellaneous other items. The car also comes with records outlining approximately $10,000 in recent work, riginal jack, riginal lug wrench, nd original tool roll with tools.
The car is a particularly nice driving example, ith a responsive motor with good oil pressure. The 5-speed gearbox is also very nice, ith properly functioning synchromesh and linkage. The brakes inspire confidence and the suspension and chassis are tight and solid.
This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a genuine Giulietta Veloce that is an ideal example to use and enjoy. Mechanically upgraded but retaining the visual purity and attractiveness of the early Giulietta, he car represents the best of both worlds to the enthusiast wishing to drive and enjoy their car. This particular example makes a strong cosmetic impression but isn’t too nice to use, nd has benefitted from extensive recent work to bring it to its current well-sorted condition.
