Melding Alfa Romeo’s excellence in performance and design, the Giulietta Spider Veloce was launched in 1958 with styling by Pinin Farina. This Veloce was completed in February 1959 in Rosso (Red) paint and delivered to New York a month later. Much of its early history is unknown. It later resided in San Francisco, and in 1989, its owner delivered the car to a garage for service but, sadly, he passed away before the work was completed. The Veloce remained unclaimed for many years and was eventually acquired in the late 1990s by its previous owner. The car was placed in storage until 2014, when the current owner purchased it and commissioned a rotisserie restoration costing just shy of $200,000. This lovely example of the highly desirable Giulietta Veloce received the attention of several Bay Area marque specialists: Images Autobody in Campbell completed the paintwork; Alfaman of Novato worked on the suspension, engine, and gearbox; Jon Norman of Alfa Parts in Berkeley attended to the brakes and differential; and the final setup was completed by Tom Sahines, Tech Advisor to the Alfa Romeo Owners Club. After a three-year process the show-quality restoration resulted in the Veloce participating in the Hillsborough Concours d’Elegance in 2018.

With 500 miles since restoration, this Veloce, featuring its matching-numbers engine, comes with an Alfa Romeo Certificate of Origin, a well-documented restoration record that includes extensive photographs, and the promise of many miles of spirited driving.
