31,995: ’64 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT
The iconic Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT was first introduced in ’63. They got production ramped up in ’64 when today’s featured Alfa was built. They built 31,995 by the time they ended production in ’66. True Alfisti will recognize the beauty of all of the 105 Series Coupes but the early Scalina cars are coveted for their purity of design. You would think with the rather hefty production figures, you could find a decent early Scalina with ease. Alas, that is not the case. They rarely come to market here in the USA and when they do, many seem to have suffered at the hands of amateur restorers or just plain neglect. It is not uncommon for those who yearn for a Scalina to travel overseas to get one. Our friends over at BaT did just that with great success. Our featured car is in Europe and it is clearly one of the nicest we have seen. It is an original car with fresh paint in the same color it was born with: Graphite Grey. The engine was rebuilt about a 1,000 miles ago and the Dunlop brakes, not everyone’s favorite braking system, was thankfully attended to. The interior is a mixture of cloth and Skai vinyl and the listing says it is original. That would be remarkable because our experience with fragile Alfa interiors makes this claim a bit suspect. But it certainly looks correct in either case. The chrome is in great nick too. The price is pretty rich at 37,500 Euros so if you are a reader from Europe you might have a proximity advantage over our New World readers. Click here for the listing.
