Giulietta Spider Veloce

White with Red leather, Red carpeting and Black convertible top, Original Veloce Spyder, Restored by Conrad Stevenson, Long term Californian ownership.

This car is believed to have been sold new in Monterey, California and is a black plate Californian car with a handful of long term California based owners. A matching numbers example according to the Fusi book, this car was comprehensively restored from 1994 to 1996 by Conrad Stevenson, the highly regarded Alfa Romeo specialist in Berkeley, California.

During the restoration the car was completely disassembled and the body repainted in its original white livery. The drivetrain, brakes, suspension and interior were restored as necessary. The engine had previously been rebuilt, reportedly to a 1450cc displacement and during the restoration, the cylinder head was rebuilt with machine work by Norman Racing. New cams, valves, springs and guides were included in the head rebuild. The engine was resealed with new gaskets, crank seals and carburetors rebuilt. The suspension and brakes were also rebuilt with new bushings, new Koni shock absorbers, new springs, rebuilt wheel cylinders, rebuilt master cylinder, relined brakes and new brake lines.

The dashboard is excellent, with beautifully restored and correct Veloce instrumentation that includes the tachometer which starts at 2000 rpm and 140mph speedometer. The engine compartment is authentic and correct in appearance with correctly silk-screened airbox, correct Veloce intake plenum and plumbing, correctly labeled brake reservoir and correct windscreen washer fluid bag. The carburetors are Weber 40DCOE2 units, serial numbers 8865 and 8795, and the head casting number is 10100 01500 01.

The car has exceptional provenance and integrity with very long term California ownership and only a handful of owners. It has never been rusty and is an exceptionally original and authentic example. It was restored by one of the best in the business and comes with invoices from the restoration as well as original parts book and miscellaneous other books. With original Veloce Spyders becoming increasing scarce, this superb example is ready for immediate use and is highly eligible for many of the wonderful tours that are on offer today both in the United Stated and Europe.
