This 1961 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale was delivered new in Turin, Italy and received a refurbishment in Belgium before being imported to the US in 2008. Now finished in Alfa Red over a black interior. Approximately 600 miles have been added by the seller since he imported it from the US to Canada in 2014. Sprint Speciales came fitted with Veloce-spec running gear from the factory, and the 1290cc twin-cam four in this example was reportedly rebuilt over 10 years ago. Power is delivered to the rear wheels by a 5-speed manual gearbox, and work performed over the past four years included service to the Girling 4-wheel drum brake system, changing the fluids, and the installation of a new idler arm.

This Giulietta Sprint Speciale features a set of rarely seen pivoting vent windows. An option also seen on Briggs Cunningham's special ordered SS, chassis #AR10120.00533. A set of bumper-mounted Marchal driving lamps come fitted. The 1290cc DOHC inline-four would have been delivered in Veloce-spec when new and is backed by a 5-speed manual gearbox. Induction is through a pair of Weber DCOE carburetors with a factory aluminum airbox and F.I.S.P.A air cleaner. Prior to being imported to the US, the engine is said to have been rebuilt with a set of domed pistons, and a recent compression test performed by the seller revealed between 200 and 205 psi across all four cylinders. Few miles have been added within the past two years, though oil and coolant changes were performed in early 2018. The car comes with a unique air intake that was inspired by the famous Facetti airbox to increase horsepower via increased air intake. There is a spun nylon plug in the machined opening that can be removed for extra horsepower. All shutlines are perfect as are all the gaps. The chassis is strong and straight.

The interior is finished with black upholstery and carpet, with contrasting red piping on the door panels, rear shelf, and leather-trimmed front seats. An ashtray and chrome knobs fill out the painted dash face. Instrumentation is provided by a trio of Veglia gauges, and 88k kilometers are shown on the 5-digit odometer.
