The Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale, manufactured from 1962 through 1966, continued to cement Alfa Romeos post-war reputation as the producer of innovative, consciously engineered and exceptionally styled sports cars and sedans on a mass-production level. Claiming the Giulia was the grown-up version of the previously released Giulietta, the 1,570cc Veloce engine gave the Giulia SS more than 112hp and a top speed of 120mph. Most Giulia SS models offered front disc brakes and Weber DCOE2 carburetors, which were also taken from the Giulia Sprint Veloce. If youre thinking about buying a 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale, one of the easiest ways to distinguish it from the Giulietta SS is by the dashboard. The Giulia models had a leather underside with the glovebox sitting at a different angle than the main fascia. The Giulietta, on the other hand, had a dash that was painted in one color and lacked the leather underside. Similarly, if they still exist, Giulia models featured Giulia SS script badges on the side. In total, 1,400 Giulia Sprint Speciale models were produced, including 25 that were converted to right-hand drive by RuddSpeed.
When buying a 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale, one of the biggest Buyers Tips that The Beverly Hills Car Club can offer is to ensure you understand the extent of any rust damage to the model. Classic Alfa Romeo models of this era are prone to rust and, with only 1,400 examples produced, certain parts and body panels can be difficult and expensive to find. It is always in your best interest to have the Giulia SS inspected by a third-party and to ask the Seller for any documentation regarding ownership history, maintenance and service, and restoration as this can help you understand the history of the classic. Furthermore, youll want to research availability of parts to ensure you have factored these costs into your budget. The Beverly Hills Car Club can assist you with many of these tasks, and can also help you find a qualified Alfa Romeo mechanic to perform the third-party inspection.
