Exclusively Mint: ’63 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider 1600
Alfa Romeo Giulia Spiders are on a tear lately. Finding a good, unmolested Giulia 1600 is getting more and more difficult. In the days before the big price jump, many Alfisti modified the Giuliettas and Giulias with larger engines that are plentiful. Today’s exclusive is a 1600cc Spider that still has the original drivetrain it was born with. It appears to be an Italian import with side lights and kilometers on the speedo. The exterior color is also the correct factory red although it is a repaint in decent condition. We are told by the seller that the Spider drives very well without emitting any smoke or producing unsettling noises. The compression is high and even across all 4 cylinders. The dryer vent ducting for air vent ducts can easily be replaced with the available correct material. The panel fit is very good perhaps indicating that the Spider has never been apart but we don’t know that for sure. It is a solid car that will require rebuilt seats and new covers, a project we are familiar with. There are plenty of sources for replacement covers stateside. Just get somebody familiar with Alfa seats to get the best results. A top is in place and it works but we are told it probably could use replacing. We haven’t seen the car in the flesh yet however the paint can be made presentable making it a satisfying, driver quality car. Therefore you can wait on that strip & repaint expense watching valuations climb, then go all in. This one deserves it. Today’s Alfa isn’t the least expensive Spider out there at $53,900.00, however the condition may warrant a really close look. The Alfa is currently in New England.
