The Alfa Romeo Giulia (105) Sprint GT was designed by Bertone’s Giorgetto Giugiaro. The car was launched in September 1963 at the newly opened Arese plant and displayed later that month at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The overall styling of the Giulia was kept very simple however, the Giulia had a very distinctive Scalino ‘step front’ design with the bonnet sitting approximately 1/4 inch above the nose of the car. Alfa Romeo was one of the first manufacturers to put a powerful engine in a lightweight car for mainstream production, making it a forerunner to today's performance saloons. The Giulia was powered by Alfa Romeo’s twin cam, all-aluminium, four cylinder 1,570cc engine mated to a five-speed gearbox. This punchy power plant ensured the car's performance was better than many sports cars of the era. Alfa Romeo took ‘Touring Car’ racing by storm winning the European Touring Car Championship in 1966, 1967 and 1968.

This right hand drive, 1964 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT was supplied new in the UK. At some time it was exported to Australia. The current owner purchased the car there and returned it to the UK in June 2016. After using it sparingly for a while it was put into storage where it has remained until recently. We are informed that the car is matching numbers, has a sound floor pan and is running and drivable. This is a restoration project with a lot of potential for being put back on the road or rebuilt for racing and use on the track. Finished in blue with tan and stripped material interior it is supplied with a V5C registration document and a number of spare parts including an original grille, a new bumper still in its protective wrapping and other parts. These wonderful classic Alfa Romeos are highly sought-after and a restoration project such as this is so rare to find, particularly as the car appears to be complete.
