Parked In ’82: 1958 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloce Spider

Disclosure: This site may receive compensation from some link clicks and purchases.

The Spider was the convertible version of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Series. Fewer than 2,800 of them were built between 1956 and 1959, so the number of them that likely remain today is probably small. This example from 1958 is the more powerful Veloce which has been in storage for 42 years and no longer has its engine. The seller is trying to decide whether to buy a motor and fix it up, sell it as-is, or part it out. What would you do?

These cars began with a 2+2 coupe first shown at an industry show in 1954. Once it got into production, a sedan joined the fold along with the coveted Spider, a drop-top that could also come with a detachable hardtop like the seller’s example. Bodywork was styled by Pininfarina, so these vehicles had a decidedly “Italian” look and feel. The Veloce edition came with a more powerful version of an inline-4 with dual Weber carburetors (91 hp vs. 79).

We’re told there is a designation of 750F on the VIN plate, but we don’t know if that’s significant. The car hasn’t seen the light of day since 1982 and between now and then the motor was removed and is no longer part of the scene. There is rust that will need addressing in the rocker panels, floors, and other places. The Alfa reached 84,000 miles before being parked.

The seller is on a fishing expedition with an asking price of $9,500 here on Facebook Marketplace. But he/she is not opposed to parting out the automobile or acquiring a replacement motor to fill the empty void under the hood. Trades are not out of the realm either. Located in Harrison Township, Michigan, the seller hopes to hear from you soon, if you’re a serious buyer. Our thanks to Barn Finder “Ted” for sending this tip our way!

    The F denotes a Veloce. 750 is the model series. It was replaced by the 101 series. Rare car.

    $9,500 for a rusty car with no engine stuffed into a trailer full of junk doesn’t do a thing for me. Love the cars but not this one.

    too expensive to rebuild and too expensive as a parts car in my opinion.

    To the good: it appears complete but for the engine which is easier to find and probably less money than all the smal parts that you don’t have to find. rechroming is expensive but you already have the part.

    There were more photos added as I delved into this seller’s post. After seeing the additional pictures; it looks likes like a lost cause!

    As a former owner of a 1957 Giulietta 750D Spider back in the day, I always like to see these somewhat rare cars brought back to life. After viewing the seller’s photos, I recommend that restoration should begin with the aftermarket hard top and then look for a sound 750D or 750F Spider body to put it on.

    How sad too see a once proud Italian beauty left to rot in a storage shed full of rusty junk, missing her heart, that once beautiful engine. I could just cry, the sadness of it all.

    Too much money for this even if it is a Veloce.
