1960 Alfa Romeo Spider 750F LWBVehicle Overview
1960 Alfa Romeo 750F LWB Giulietta Spider Veloce
This beautiful 1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Veloce 1495F 07582 with matching motor #1-888-478-95765, is from the estate of William Vermillion, a popular 60's DJ (WLOF Radio AM) from the Orlando, FL area. It was manufactured and imported in March 1960 to Hoffman Motors. This Veloce has just completed a total and complete restora-tion, in a dry desert shop, spending an extraordinary amount of time and effort in main-taining its originality.
The history of this Alfa can go back to January 1962, when Mr. Vermillion purchased it in Washington State. He then moves to Florida in 1963, where the car is registered and he apparently raced it at SCCA events. Several SCCA club magazines and race forms came with the purchase. The last registration of Mr. Vermillion's Alfa for the road seems to be in the 1972-73 year. RML Automotive in Daytona Beach acquired the car in late 2009, and it was purchased by its last owner after in early 2010.
This Alfa 750F LWB restoration started with a complete car, with nearly all its original parts. They strived to keep as much of these parts, restoring them whenever possible. Nearly all original nuts and bolts are still used and restored to their authentic finishes. New parts for the engine and drive included pistons and liners, bearings, valves, guides, seals. The cylinder head work was completed by Norm Racing, and the bottom end at Universal Automotive and Rebuilding in Las Vegas. The Weber DC03 carbs were reconditioned with new parts; new throttle shafts were fitted by Pierce Manifold. Brushes and bushings in the original Marelli starter were replaced, also with new sole-noid installed. Its Marelli generator was also rebuilt and tested. The transmission was disassembled with 1st and 2nd syncros, seals, fork bushings, clutch and pressure plate replaced. All brakes were overhauled with new parts, including seals and hoses. A new exhaust system was installed with new hangers. Tires are the original type - Pirelli CA67 on Borrani wheels.
The body was found to be very sound. It was completely stripped, repaired, then epoxy covered. It is finished in Alfa 505 red (single stage urethane). All chrome is done in show quality. Interior vinyl color is the unusual gray/ beige, which Alfa offered at the time. The carpets are made of Italian wool. A new windshield was installed as the original had deep scratches. Also, a NOS, still in the box, Motorola AM radio was found and installed with a period correct antenna. All doors, hood and trunk lid fit well and close properly. A new stayfast top has been installed and comes with an original type vinyl boot. It also comes with a complete Veloce tool kit. jack and owners manual. Overall, no detail has been overlooked as can be seen in the photos.
This special Alfa Giulietta Spider Veloce is stunning in person, perfect for showing, well sorted out, and drives great. An example that will only appreciate in value. If you are looking for the best example of this car anywhere, this is it!
