The classic carrozzeria, Bertone, is known globally as one foremost Italian design houses, and rightly so. The Giulietta Sprint coupé, designed by Franco Scaglione was launched at the 1954 Turin Motor Show. Hand-built by Alfa Romeo, these elegant sporting coupes used a twin cam, straight-four aluminium engine, a crossflow cylinder head and double overhead camshafts with twin timing chains.
According to the Alfa Romeo ‘Certificato Di Origine’, this totally restored example is a matching numbers car and was manufactured on 23rd December 1958 and delivered to New York on 10th February 1959. It remained in the USA and was last registered in Indiana before being sold to Dutch dealer Union Jack B.V Vintage Cars in Oldensaal, Holland in October 2015.
It was subsequently sold to a collector in Poland in 2016 who commissioned a total rebuild of the car to what can only be described as 'concours standard’. The car was acquired from the owner in Poland and imported to the UK in 2022 and, interestingly, Alfa Romeo restoration specialists here confirm it’s exceptional restoration and condition and remarked that it is one of the best examples they have seen. The attention to detail is outstanding with parts from Classic Alfa alone totalling over £6,000 and a photo album containing well over 150 photograph's of the car during the restoration process. The owner also complied two large folders of the car which includes many invoices and documents plus the Alfa Romeo Certificato Di Origine and three original Giulietta parts files. Also included is a flash drive which accompanies the paperwork showing the full bare-metal process which will ensure its future for years to come. It has recently been fully UK registered with an age-related registration, 12-month MoT test certificate and history file.
