This 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider 1600 is a clean three-owner example that was the subject of an extensive mechanical and cosmetic restoration by a previous owner in 2008. In addition to the full refresh of the body and interior, the factory 1600cc Normale engine was rebuilt to Veloce specifications. Driven approximately 1K miles since the seller’s purchase 1 year ago, the car remains in top working condition with its last servicing 8 months ago for an oil change, lubrication, and full inspection. The car is sold with a clean Montana title in the seller’s name and is located in Englewood, Colorado.
Believed to have been California car most of its life, the three-year restoration was completed in 2011. The red paintwork still shows well, displaying good shine over the body surfaces. Issues in the finish are said by the seller to be limited to a few chips along the nose which can be seen in the detailed image gallery.
The trim and brightwork appear complete and in good condition and consist of both new and re-chromed pieces.
The soft top remains fully operational and shows well, with fabric free of rips and a clear rear window.
Started in 2008 by the second owner, the restoration involved stripping to bare metal prior to the repaint. A coating of rust inhibitor was applied to the underside at the same time. Included below are several photographs documenting the restoration process.
The interior remains in good condition with black upholstery and contrasting body color dash, accompanied by the proper radio delete plate. Seat upholstery was replaced at the time of restoration and remains in good condition.
Veglia gauges are in good working order and display some faint yellowing on the speedometer typeface as well as some light pitting along the trim rings. All other controls, indicators, and electric accessories remain fully operational. The five-digit odometer indicates 72,628 miles and is believed by the seller have been driven approximately 5.5K miles since the restoration.
The photo above show the painted floor pans with the carpet and seats removed.
The trunk compartment remains clean and tidy, complete with its spare wheel and tire along with jack and tool-kit.
The AR00112 coded 1600 engine is correct for the car’s Normale specification and is believed to be original to the car. Fitted with a pair of Weber carburetors, it was given a complete rebuild in 2010 beyond standard Normale specifications, and is described by the seller a strong runner.
