Being offered for sale is this rare and beautifully restored Numbers Matching 1961 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint. This wonderful example has been restored with its original color, Gardenia White with Blue and White interior. The ground up restoration was completed while staying true to the nuances that make it a desirable American Market car. Built in Milan Italy and designed by the famed Franco Scaglione at the Bertone design house. It was imported to US market early in its life.

An original Solex will be included with the car but not original to this car. Front Drum brakes have been upgraded to large single piston disc brakes.
