Italian automaker Alfa Romeo built the Giulietta series of cars from 1954 to 1965 in several body styles to appeal to all buyers, including a 2+2 coupé, four-door saloon, estate, spider, Sprint, and Sprint Speciale. The 2+2 coupé was the first to hit the scene, while the four-door saloon came along in 1955. That same year, the open two-seat Giulietta Spider with Pininfarina bodywork was launched to provide an alternative to those looking for open-top motoring along the Italian countryside.
In 1956, Alfa Romeo switched from the Tipo 750 chassis to the Tipo 101 and also gave birth to the “Veloce” variant of the Spider. Directly translating as “fast” in Italian, the Spider Veloce gained 10 more hp than the regular Spider, bringing the total number to 90 hp thanks to twin-choke Weber 40 DCOE2 carburetors, 9:1 compression, a new cylinder head, 9mm valve stems, and bigger diameter crankshaft main journals. Early Alfas, produced in 1960, still used the “1495” prefix of the Tipo 750 chassis on the serial number before switching to the more appropriate “101.20” prefix. From 1956 to 1961, only 2,796 examples of the Spider Veloce were produced.
This early example, Chassis # AR 1495.11327, began life on August 4th, 1960, and was sold to Hoffman Motor Car Co. in New York, NY, on the 27th of November, 1961. According to the Alfa Romeo Storico archives, this Spider Veloce was finished in black with beautifully contrasting red upholstery, a scheme it wears today. Under the hood is the 1.3 L DOHC Inline 4-cylinder engine with twin Weber 40 DCO3 carburetors backed by a 5-speed manual transmission.
As the story goes, the car was purchased by its long-time owner, who is a good friend of LBI Limited, on Thanksgiving day of 1991 from Jerry Lucas of Lucas Racing Enterprises in Bethlehem, PA. Mr. Lucas came to the owner’s bar earlier in the week, asking if he would like to purchase the car. The owner snuck out shortly after Thanksgiving dinner to drive to Jerry’s shop and deliver the payment for the car. It is believed the car resided in the Bethlehem, PA, area for quite some time before this. At the time of purchase, the Alfa was largely dismantled with the engine removed.
It underwent a restoration in the early 1990s at the hands of restorer Jed Steely. New floors were installed, the engine, suspension, transmission, and brakes were rebuilt, the body was refinished in its original color, the interior was re-trimmed, all chrome was replated, and a new top was installed. After completion in 1994, this Spider Veloce was a Concours-quality example and won First Place awards three years in a row at the New Hope Auto Show in Pennsylvania.
In 2009, the engine was fully rebuilt from the ground up along with its driveshaft by Euro Auto Classics in Philadelphia, PA, a job that cost just under $9,000. After 20 years of ownership, the car was consigned through Gooding & Co., where it sold sometime in 2011. That same year, the Alfa received a brand-new Italian windshield that was also installed by Euro Auto Classics. In 2020, it was once more sold through Gooding & Co. to an owner in California. Under their ownership, the brakes were rebuilt by Werner Schott Classic Car Repair in Buellton, CA with the transmission receiving its own rebuild shortly after by The Smiekel Collection in Ventura, CA.
This rare Spider Veloce stands out from the rest as the gold standard of what these classic sports cars should be like, with its restoration and numerous component rebuilds resulting in an example that drives as well as it looks. This Alfa was also the proud recipient of the coveted Alfa Romeo Owners Club Certificato d’Oro, with a near-perfect score of 99.3 at the 2010 AROC National Convention in Virginia.
There are few things more enjoyable than cruising through the weekend in an open-top Italian sports car on the way to your local Concours lawn. We invite you to live out that vision in a 1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Veloce. Upon purchase, the new owner will receive the original jack, tool kit, owner’s manual, and numerous service records on file.
