Giulia SS 10121*381349. On June 6th in Greenwich CT Bonhams will hold an auction and among the lots is Lot 437, one 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale with a claimed 33,000 miles on the odometer and a fairly clean, original appearance. Estimate is $40,000 – $60,000, which ranges from realistic to slightly optimistic but not out of the question.
This is a popular angle on the grill. When they were making these, each car had a custom fit centergrill because each nose came out slightly different by the time all the panels that made it up were welded together.
The rear view mirror looks great as does the stitching around the gauge cluster hump on the dash cover. Wiper arms are correct and deflector seems to have the right camber -angling slightly toward the windshield.
There have not been a lot of SS’s on the market in recent months and the motoring and auction season is just getting underway so I expect a strong final on this car. I used to say the value of good Alfa’s is pegged to the Euro but I am thinking that needs to be modified to say it’s pegged to whatever rich guys are protecting their assets in, whether it be gold or pork bellies. This is a real, desireable thing, produced in very limited quantities and that can be used an enjoyed as it appreciates. Don’t be afraid -go for it!
