The Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider was first unveiled to the public in 1962 and was marketed as the updated version of the widely popular Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider. The Giulia Spider would boast a 1.6L engine paired with a five-speed transmission, and would be quite successful for the company. In fact, approximately 9,250 examples of the standard Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider would be manufactured. In addition to being offered in the standard form, the Giulia Spider Convertible was also available as a Veloce, which increased performance to 112hp with a twin-carburetor setup. Only 1,091 of the Giulia Spider Veloce editions would be made. One of the easiest ways to determine whether you’re looking at a Giulia Spider or a Giulietta Spider (which are very similar) is by the hood bulge on the Giulia. If you’re thinking about buying a 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider, rest assured knowing that The Beverly Hills Car Club can assist you with each step of the process to ensure that your classic car buying experience is nothing short of exceptional.
As with many of the European classic cars from the 1960’s, the 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider is prone to rust damage, especially in the rocker panel and windshield area. While you should always ask sellers to point out any areas of concern, it is best to have a third party inspection to ensure that you understand any underlying issues that could become headaches after you’ve purchased the car. On the other hand, these cars are fairly sturdy mechanically. Previous owners, however, often do unusual things in a misguided attempt to get more performance. Always pay special attention to empty brackets or wires that don’t go anywhere. A qualified mechanic or Alfa Romeo specialist can assist you in inspecting these areas. Lastly, it is normal for Spider models of this age to leak some oil. It is not normal, however, for a Spider to leak anything else like coolant or brake fluid. These could be signs of underlying problems.
