1959 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Veloce 750 First Series

SOLD

An exceptionally lovely and rare example in its original pure short chassis form with all of the unique detail these first series cars possess, witness for example the beautifully small rear light clusters, the flowing side profile without quarter lights and the simple dashboard with open glovebox. 

This example from the last year of short chassis production must also be one of, if not the very finest, of its type having been fully and authentically restored to the highest standards. We have had many great cars at Hairpin over the last 18 years but this must count in our top five. 

Originally delivered to America, the Alfa had several careful owners in California and hence presented as a very good original matching numbers car when offered for sale some years ago. The highly regarded Dobson Motorsport had been looking for just such an Alfa to show off their restoration and following inspection it was purchased and the work began.

A large history file fully illustrated with many photographs shows how good the car was in the metal when stripped back and of course shows the immense care and effort that then went into making it perfect and factory correct in close detail. The restoration has the quality one would normally associate with an expensive Ferrari, witness the perfect chrome without wave or flaw, the crystal-clear instruments that work perfectly and the incredibly rare working radio made especially for this model. I could go on but I’m sure you get the picture by now…

The Alfa scored highly in a number of concours events before being offered for sale a few years ago at which point it was purchased by a fastidious British collector following a detailed inspection. The last owner, a seasoned collector and historic racer with a beautiful collection purchased the car from this friend and has used it gently on fine dry days since. He has continued to take a no compromise attitude to the car hence a slight noise in the engine led to a full rebuild by the highly regarded Hall and Hall who maintain his race cars. An invoice on file for £12,000 details this work. Further invoicing in this ownership confirms that any fault, however small, has been addressed.

It’s a strong word perfect but never before have I had a car that so nearly deserves this accolade. Some years have passed since the restoration, certainly long enough for any compromises to show and they haven’t. On viewing the car, I knew I had to buy it, come and see if you can disagree with me.
