1963 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spyder 101


Registration Number: OEU 739 Chassis Number: 583070 At its birth in 1954, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta was given a "750" series number, which denoted the coupes, convertibles, and sedans with a 1290cc engine and four-speed transmission. The lightweight, high-performance Veloce models retained this number, though it had many specific components that did not interchange with those fitted to normal Sprint coupes and Spider convertibles. During 1959, a new model, designated "101," was announced. At this time, the Spider‘s wheelbase was lengthened and a few cosmetic changes were made to the exterior: Convertibles adopted non-opening door vent windows, coupes added a fine egg-crate texture to the centre and side grilles, and both gained larger tail-lights. The example on offer here has been used sparingly since it was fully restored and recommissioned in 2007, during which time it was subjected to a full bare metal respray in its original colour of Azzuro Chairo, with new matching carpets and new chrome. Other works carried out included new wheels with new Firestone tyres, a new tonneau cover, and a thoroughly overhauled braking system. The car also comes complete with an exhaustive history file, including 22 years of past MoT certificates, receipts for works carried out, original driver’s handbook, parts book and Alfa Romeo club magazines dating back to the 1960s.
