The recent listing for Sprint 20753 prompted Greg to send me the email I attached below. 45 years have passed since he sold 20377 and he wonders what it has been up to. Anyone have 20377 in their garage or know who does? I have 20379 in my garage, but they haven’t kept in touch…
I can be reached at sprints @ giuliettas.com if you do.
There’s something magical about an old picture of the cars we love. This one is from the late -1960’s. I went through my family albums and there are NO pictures of my dads old truck at all from 40 years of ownership. I like the fog lights on this car.
I get a lot of email from guys who just bought cars asking me if I’ve seen them before. Usually the answer is no, not because I haven’t seen the car, but because I’ve seen so many over the last few years that I’m just not sure. This is a Sprint Veloce, used as a race car in the past then moving to Europe in about 1990. Anyone recognize it? Owner would love to hear from you. Send me an email to get in contact with them.
From the archives:
According to our documentation files, the chassis number AR 1493 E 06923 originally corresponds to an Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Veloce, manufactured on the 8th August 1958 and sold on the 16th September 1958 to Hoffman Motor Car Co., New York, U.S.A.
The body colour is “azzurro Riviera” (AR 322).
Got a car that you’d like to try and find info on? I can post it for you just like this.
Without those numbers this could be my car! Hood looks to be flat black. Late 60’s 105 wheels. Another car headed for restored glory I hope!
