Alfa Romeo – Giulia SS

  • The Car – 1963 Alfa Romeo Sprint Speciale.  Bertone built body on a Sprint platform.  Up-rated version of the 1600cc engine with 5-speed gearbox.  Total production run of around 1,400 cars.
  • The Story – I have owned this car since the mid 1980’s.  Acquired it from a dealer that imported the car.  I did vintage racing with the car for a number of years and then restored it back to street trim and did many touring events and rallies with it.  It is a great driving car.
  • The Cool Factor – Rather unusual car to be driving around twenty, thirty years ago even amongst real car guys.  Dolce Vita award at Concorso Italiano.
