1957 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider - prima serie (750 D). This rare first series Spider has just undergone a thorough reconditioning by our Italian experts and looks beautiful.
This is a numbers matching US spec car that was built on March 6 1957 and first sold on March 1957 to the Hoffman Motor Car Co. in New York.
With an odometer reading of 49,595 kilometers or 31,000 miles, it is sure to please the collector seeking the right open Italian sports car for tours, rallies and shows.
This example has been restored to a high standard starting with a very solid, low original mileage find. Paint, interior, trim and mechanicals have all been well taken care of, and the car drives and presents very well.
Designed by legendary house of Pininfarina, the truly classic lines of the Giulietta Spider are graceful and sensual, perfectly suited to the character of this sports car. Under the hood is a 1.3 liter version of the Afla Romeo DOHC 4- cylinder fitted with a simple to tune dual barrel downdraft carburetor. Compression is a modest 8:1 and power quoted at 79 HP at 6000 rpm. Transmission is a rugged 4-speed manual. With a curb weight well under 2000 lbs this provides lively performance and pleasant cruising. Top speed is right at 100 mph.
At 152.8” long on an 86.6” wheelbase, the Spider is neatly sized and very well proportioned. The cockpit is relatively roomy for a sports car and the trunk is of quite useful dimension.
The Spider features a robust unibody with front suspension by control arms and a well located solid axle with coil springs and hydraulic dampers at all four corners. The ride is quite civilized in concert with excellent handling for the period. Overall production of the Giulietta Spider is quoted at 14,300 units over the long production run, so they are very rare today.
