Vehicle Description

1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia 1600 Spider Veloce, Pininfarina- One of just

1,091 Giulia 1600 Spider Veloces produced.- Beneficiary of a

just-completed restoration to original specs.- Accompanied by a

letter from Alfa Romeo confirming its factory colors.- Retains its

original numbers-matching engine.Alfa Romeo announced the Giulia in

1962. The Giulietta remained in production, but it was now viewed

as an economical alternative designed to appeal to a wider market

segment. Externally, the most noticeable and distinctive element of

the Giulia Spider over its predecessors, was the imitation air

intake on the bonnet. It gave the car a touch of aggressiveness to

its already classic Pininfarina coachwork. The new bonnet was

necessitated by the greater height of the engine crankcase. The

Giulia was endowed with upgraded mechanicals, too, including an

alloy twin-cam 92hp 1570cc 4-cylinder engine. The Giulia retained

all the benefits of its lesser sibling, the Giulietta, albeit with

greater torque at low revs.Veloce models, first appearing in 1964,

offered 112hp thanks to modifications which included two Weber

twin-choke carburetors and a 9.7:1 compression ratio. The smooth

shifting, all-synchro manual transmission boasts five forward

speeds compared to the previous four, and front disc brakes were

fitted to improve stopping power. The nimble-handling suspension is

comprised of front upper and lower A-arms with coil springs and a

live rear axle with aluminum center section and leaf spring

suspension. Top speed was quoted at 110mph. The Giulietta-Giulia

line represented the mainstream of Alfa Spider production through

the middle-1960s.Road & Track summed up the new Giulia nicely.

"The 1600 Veloce . . . its Weber-fed engine leaps eagerly up into

the meaty high-revolution range, and even pulls well further down

the tachometer. This extra strength, controlled by the superb

five-speed all-synchromesh transmission, makes the car much better

suited than before to increasingly fierce U.S. traffic

conditions."One of just 1,091 produced, this Giulia is the

beneficiary of a just-completed and meticulously executed

rotisserie restoration. It has been restored to its original

combination of Nero over a red leather interior with black carpets

highlighted by red bindings. A letter from Alfa Romeo confirms the

original color combination and that the Giulia retains its original

numbers-matching engine.
