In 1962, the Italian automaker Alfa Romeo would update its Giulietta Spider with new underpinnings and a new 1.6L engine partnered with a five-speed transmission and would call it a Giulia. As was traditional for the automaker, a dual-carburetor Veloce version was also available, which offered 112hp. Only 1,091 of these particular Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider Veloce models were manufactured. For those who are new to Alfa Romeo collecting, you can typically tell a Giulia Spider from a Giulietta Spider by the characteristic hood bulge in the Giulia. Likewise, under the hood, you can find the corresponding chassis number stamped on the firewall. Highly collectable in today’s European classic car market, the 1964 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider (and other model-years) fetches the highest price tag when in its best condition. However, most folks thinking about buying a 1964 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider will accept a model in need of restoration, as these classics are nearly 50 years old. If you’re thinking about buying a classic Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider, The Beverly Hills Car Club would be delighted to assist you in your search.
When buying a 1964 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider, one of the most important things you need to look for is rust. While the Giulia Spider is simple enough mechanically to be repaired by anyone who is even remotely mechanically inclined, the bodies of these cars can be rusted so badly that it is not economical enough to fix. For this and other obvious reasons, it is vitally important for you to have any potential purchase inspected by a qualified and experienced Alfa Romeo expert. They can not only give you a better understanding of the car’s overall condition, but whether or not it is able to be restored. Spider models typically rust around the fender arches, the rocker panels and the floorpans. Pay special attention to the driver’s side footwell, as this seems to be the first area to show signs of rust in most classic Giulia Spiders. These are just a few of the many, many Buyer’s Tips for the Giulia that The Beverly Hills Car Club has learned over the years and are happy to share with their clients and friends.
