Known History

Evolution of the Giulietta, which was launched in 1955 and which started the saga of the Alfa cabriolets, the Giulia Spider was unveiled in 1962. Launched at the same time as the new Giulia TI, the spider's engine was the same four cylinder 1570cc, developing 92bhp, which gave the car a top speed of 172 km/h, as well as better reliability compared to its predecessor.

This Giulia Spider, which dates from the first year of production, sold new to the US. The car was found in France during the 1990s, belonging to a collector from Reims who worked in the champagne business and undertook a full restoration. The period red was replaced by a chic British green that looks magnificent on this elegant cabriolet. This was carried out to a very high standard, and the car, restored some thirty years ago, retains a lovely patina today. Regular maintenance was carried out by Renaud Jacquemet and the engine was set up with a specification similar to a Veloce with two Weber carburettors that are still in the car today.

When it was bought by the current owner in 2016, a meticulous collector of Italian cars, extensive work was carried out to meet his high standards. The hood, seats and carpets have been renewed. The bakelite steering wheel was sent to Italy to be restored by a specialist. The dashboard instruments have also been restored, an Autovox radio face plate (not connected) was refitted, and the door panels were replaced. Finally, the brakes were adjusted, with the front drums and linings refurbished. In 2020, the specialist Claude Busson carried out a service on the car, and we couldn't fail to be impressed by how well this elegant cabriolet runs.
