Description

1965 Alfa Romeo Guilia Spider
Registration no. ECV 469C
Chassis no. 383241
Engine no. 13478

A successor to the highly successful Giulietta series, the Giulia 101 coupé and Spider benefitted from a 1600 cc engine and front disc brakes. Available in 'Normale' - with a single carburettor - and twin carburettor Sprint versions, the 101 series cars combine the charm and poise of the Giulietta with real long distance touring ability.

The car offered was supplied new to a lady by E. L. Bouts Motors Ltd of Wolverhampton and has had four documented owners, the first of whom kept the car until 1972. It then passed to another lady owner who kept the Alfa until 1974 when it was sold to the penultimate keeper who sold the car to the present owner in 1985. He then embarked on a full restoration, which took several years and has resulted in the exceptional car we see here. Reported as running and driving very well, the Alfa is offered with its history, including the old 'green' registration book, the previous and current V5Cs, letters from the first owner in 1972, past MOTs and tax discs, and an original owner's manual and service book. Right-hand drive 101 series cars are rare as many succumbed to corrosion and neglect, this is a fantastic example with great provenance.
