Known History

The original "lightweight" Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Veloce coupes of 1956 and 1957 were highly sought after for their high performance and commensurate success in competition. A great deal of the weight savings came from an interior meant for racing- it lacked roll-up windows, had minimal door upholstery and thin racing seats. Only approximately 200 were built.

In 1958, their sparkling two carburetor performance was extended to a more inviting driving environment, with roll-up windows, standard seats and interior upholstery as per the standard Sprint. Not surprisingly these gained the name "Confortevole" - "comfort".

This rare example of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloce Confortevole was delivered new to Switzerland in 1958. By 1962 it had found its way to the USA, where it was registered to an owner in Southern California near Los Angeles, who is believed to have worked in the aircraft industry. The Alfa was taken off of the road by this owner in 1980 and in 1982 was offered for sale. It was purchased by a well-known Alfa enthusiast and Ford Motor Company stylist living in Southern California, who slowly and carefully restored the car in work which was extensively documented in photographs. During this restoration the color was changed from the original white to a model correct Graphite Gray, with a very attractive all-vinyl red interior.

The seller, another long-time passionate Alfa Romeo collector, enthusiast and expert resident in Oregon purchased the Confortevole in 2012. Since then it has been maintained in superb condition, used well and often on events and weekend drives.

It stands ready to provide years of enjoyment for its next fortunate caretaker. Inspection may be arranged in Portland, Oregon by appointment. Please contact us for details.
