  • Legend

The Alfa Romeo Giulietta, first seen at the 1954 Turin Motor Show in coupe form, was intended as a small sports car that could cut through narrow European streets with ease. Alfa then produced a sedan version in 1955, and at the request of American importer Max Hoffman, a convertible version of the Giulietta was also produced in the same year. The spider was based on the Sprint and used a variant of Alfa Romeo’s 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine, which produced 74 hp. The convertible weighed 860 kg, making it 55 kg lighter than its sibling, which translated into marked improvements in performance and resulted in a top speed of nearly 160 km/h.

Today it hardly seems believable, but before the war Alfa Romeo was an absolute benchmark in sportiness, somewhat on the level of Ferrari today. However, the war and all the restrictions that followed made the brand’s leaders realize that the world was going to be very difficult for luxury products.

Thus, the idea for a small, affordable sedan with modest displacement matured. But Alfa Romeo did not want to deny its roots, so it put full effort into top technology, which was even advanced, to make this small car as dynamic as possible: an all alloy engine with two overhead camshafts, hemispherical combustion chambers, a self-supporting bodywork,…

The Giulietta’s racing record is breathtaking: the number of championships and international rallies won by this incredible machine is innumerable. With standard bodywork or in a lighter variant such as Zagato’s, the Giulietta almost always dominated in its displacement class.

Its great success was due not only to its handling, but also to the performance of its small 1.3-liter engine. Some specialists say without hesitation that this four-cylinder was more than 30 years ahead of its time. That’s not even an exaggeration, as this engine proposed in the Giulietta in 1954 continued to power virtually all Alfa Romeo’s until … 1994. Its reliability, economy, performance, sound and … its looks make it a legend today. In motorsport, Alfa managed to squeeze nearly 120 hp out of the small 1.3, without a turbo, and that in the early 1960s.

This charming Giulietta Spider was produced for 1962 and was delivered new in Melzo, Italy. The car presents itself in beautifully restored condition. The color scheme of black over a light green interior is rare and blends beautifully with the car’s sporty yet refined character.

The car was delivered to its first owner on July 8, 1962, and cherished the car until September 1991. The second owner sold the car in 2002. The third owner kept the car until 2017, after which, after a stopover in the Netherlands, the car ended up in Belgium.

In 2024, the car was completely technically/mechanically fixed. The invoices of these works are available, as well as many photos.

Also present is the original carta di circolazione booklet, which contains the history from 1962 to 2017. Furthermore, a certificate of origin from Alfa Romeo classiche is also present.

This car is an excellent way to stand out from the crowd with one of Alfa Romeo’s most beloved creations.
