World Traveler: ’58 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint
This Sprint has covered a lot of territory in its long and illustrious life. Born in Italy, grew up in England, spent time in Japan and now in the US. Sounds like the life of an Army brat. Nuccio Bertone (Nuccio to his friends) designed the Sprint for Alfa and presented it at The Turin Auto Show in 1954. They didn’t plan on making any more than a thousand. But it was so successful, over 40,000 were manufactured until the end in 1965. These early cars are the most coveted. This one has a detailed history since it was knew. It is as if someone went to the trouble of making a documentary film about it. That doesn’t happen to a car like this very often. A Bugatti Altalantic yes, a Sprint no. It is beautiful and appears to be in a really good state of rally readiness. The current seller is Symbolic Motor Car Company in La Jolla, CA. Bill Noon knows his stuff too. If you ever wanted to participate in one of the popular tours or classic rallies, you could get a great head start by writing a check for this one. See the post on the AlfaBB by clicking here.
