Selling A 1957 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider
Despite being quite beautiful to look at, what is really impressive about the 1957 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider is the car’s engine. Also used in the previous Alfa Romeo 1900 series, the 1,900cc inline-four offered drivers as much power as the supercharged 1,750cc racing motors of the early 1930’s. It would be downsized in 1954 for the launch of the now-famous Alfa Romeo Giulietta, and would continue in the series for a number of years. Unveiled at the 1954 Turin Motor Show in Italy, the Giulietta would first arrive in a factory-designed Berlina Sedan and Bertone-designed Sprint Coupe. At its launch, the Giulietta was capable of 100mph. In 1955, a Pininfarina-designed Giulietta Spider would be released to the public. More than five inches would be trimmed off the Bertone Coupe chassis, while cross bracing would give the body rigidity. These changes would also be accompanied by a new floor-shift transmission. When all was said and done, the 1957 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider would be able to break through the 100mph barrier to 103mph; a big accomplishment for the era. If you’re thinking about selling a 1957 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider, this is the type of trivia information that prospective buyers will be interested in. p>
1957 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Seller’s Guide
Educated buyers looking for a 1957 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider will be looking for both standard and Spider Veloce editions. While quite similar in appearance, the dual-carburetor Veloce models were significantly faster and are much more rare today. In fact, only 2,796 Giulietta Spider Veloce models were manufactured – and many more were faked over the years. One of the best ways to authenticate your particular 1957 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider as original is to share engine and chassis numbers with potential buyers. By doing so, they can compare them to historic records to determine if you car is indeed an original. You can also ease their mind by providing them with ownership history, maintenance and repair records, or any documentation regarding restoration. Doing so can give buyers added confidence in knowing how your car was cared for and treated over the years. On the other hand, if you’ve just acquired a rolling chassis in need of complete restoration and have little information on the car, start with authenticating the engine and chassis numbers. These are just a few of the many Seller’s Tips that the Alex Manos team is happy to share with their clients and friends.
