Market 479: Spider Veloce 10118 390616 -“very simple project”

Giulia Spider Veloce 10118*390616, 00536*07913 (not original).  This Spider Veloce is on eBay right now out of Princeton NJ.  The body looks to be in great shape and is described as having been finished to the point of being ready for paint.  Original color was Black with probably red interior -a stunning combo!  Biggest drawback I can see is the lack of the original engine.  The 00121 engines it shares with the Giulia Sprint Speciale’s do come up, but not often and not cheap.  I know where there is one right now…

Always a pleasure to behold.  Stance is per original -not with the modern springs and all that lowers it quite a bit.  Wheels are Borranis.  Looks like a good place to start.

Trunk fit is great, lights and all look clean.  Not sure if this is an original hard top – I don’t think so.  Door fit is very nice.

Maybe it was black on black.  Fergat spare.  I don’t see any rot.

Needs a full interior redo.  Steering wheel looks very good.  Rear view mirror glass needs re-silvering.  Seats are originals, just very awkwardly recovered.

Vroom.  This would have had the late 101 tapered intake manifold and lots of other difficult to source Veloce bits.

They lost the original engine but somehow the original sump remained.

Hi Everyone I have finally decided to sell my 1965 Alfa Romeo Spyder Veloce  after owning it for over twenty- five years.  At 68 years old I have decided to sell off some of my things and let other enjoy and care for them.  The history of this car as I know it. I had always wanted one of  these 101 cars in my opinion I feel they are stunning beautiful cars that will stand the test of time and continue to go up in value. This car was bought in the eighties. The car had about 30 thousand miles on it. The engine was taken out for rebuild but the Transmission , drive shaft and rear end were never touched.  For some reason  the original engine was lost and so when I bought the car it was missing.

The following is what has been done to the car since I have had it.



BODY:  All Body work is done the car is Paint ready. The original color of this car was Black. Some minor rust in driver side floor and seat tracks as well as trunk floor.

Repairs were made to these areas with sheet medal and brazing rod.  The doors  are in perfect original shape with no rust. The doors are complete with window  glass  and regulators, door locks and everything works perfect.  The trunk lid and hood are in like new condition.  The body was sanded then epoxy primed then glazed and straight line sanded and primed again with black primer.  This is a straight solid car not some rusted out barn find.

Engine, Transmission, Rear End:  The engine is a 1966 Duitto freshly rebuilt with the good factory pistons #AE 2927. Liners were rebored and new rings installed, bearing / rod and Mains ( see pictures)  This engine has never beestarted, complete with Weber carbs.  This was one fast engine when I purchased it from a Alfa collector from Washington. I decided to do a rebuild, however engine did not need it.  The carbs have not been rebuilt since they ran perfect before .

The car has its original Transmission and rear in the car.

Suspension:  I have not done anything to the suspension.. Everything seems tight however it does need a set of axel straps.

Brakes: Front Disk brakes were completely rebuilt the rotors were cut and brakes were installed with new set of pads.  New rebuilt Brake master cylinder

The rear brakes were not touched since they looked to be in good condition.

Gas Tank:  The gas tank was removed and cleaned then installed. I did not hook up fuel line. The electric fuel pump that all Veloces had is on the car however not sure if it is original or if is working.  Fuel filler extension with rubber hose and original gas cap are with the car see photo’s .

Wheels and Hub Caps  and Tires:  Five Borrani wheels are included with the car as are the Hub Caps. The tires are Pirelli Cinturodo original fifty year old tires not fit for the road.

Gauges:  All original gauges polished and cleaned and put back in the dash however I did not connect the wires since I thought the new owner would want to take  them out again when completing the car.

Windshield:  The windshield is in very good condition, wiper blade mark that might buff out . Chrome is very good original condition.

Interior: The original seats were upholstered using Italian Glove leather as well as the door panels. The seat color is Graphite Grey.  The behind the seat panels were covered in black Vinyl with map pocket.  The car has its original behind the seat black curtain wall to cover the spare tire area fair condition but usable .

Convertible Top Frame and Top:  The original convertible top frame is included but not installed in the car. I also have a   BRAND NEW 1965 CONVERTIBLE NOS TOP STILL IN THE ORIGINAL BOX  DATED 1967.

Hard Top:  The car comes with original all medal Hard top.  This is a very rare hard top that was made in Turin, Italy only a very few were made. Excellent condition with very good head liner. No rips…..

Moldings, Emblems, Grill:  This car is complete with all emblems and SS trim pieces. The Grill is in excellent original condition. FOG Lights are from the sixties.

Front and Rear Bumpers:  I have a complete set of bumpers for the car however they will need to be chromed. These are not installed.



This car is being sold as a project car without any warrantees and guarantee’s AS IS AND WHERE IS..

I will help your shipper load car and will be available for all your questions..




In my opinion these Veloce’s will bring a lot of money in the near future, there were very few made in this series. Then again anyone interested in this car already knows this.

The car is available for inspection by appointment. Please call with any and all questions.


Note:  This car has not been started since the rebuild. The engine has been set in the car it needs to be adjusted . The new owner will need to pull the engine and put in a new clutch disk, Pressure Plate and Bearing look good. I had a new clutch disk but it was the wrong one. Weber Carbs will need new carb mounts and linkage installed. The car will need a new Exhaust System. The body is in paint ready condition in my opinion , just minor touch up. The fuel ines will need to be hooked up.  I am trying  to mention as much as I can as to what I think you will need to do to finish the car.  I will sell this car World Wide..”

  1. As a restoration goes seems pretty good, but it is a “bitsa”. Celebrityxxx didn’t sell it this time. 12,500 was the max bid. I wonder if he has the missing parts and they are not displayed? He made it sound as if he had lots of parts for these?
