Survivor: 58 Giulietta Veloce Spider Race car

Hey guys, this is my 58' Veloce Spider. It came out of the John Murphy collection in Atlanta. The original number of the car was 88. The car raced all along the east coast. Not primarily Atlanta area. Thats about all i know, if you know anything about the car or places for me to look i would greatly appreciate it and the car would as well. I have the engine and carbs all redone to perfection, i am looking forward to driving the car in short time.

This is darn close

I found this shot at vir history VIR - July 1962 Regional Races - NC Region SCCA ... Does anyone have a scca list on finishing places? I have the number but not a name to the driver... guys this roll bar is darn close to mine, i looked for the holes on the 356/ghia mirrors but no luck. The only thing that i cant figure out is that badge in front of the driver door? What kind of badge is that? Is the car in the b&w image a 1958 car? or maybe earlier...

Neat find!

The mirrors on the B and W picture look like the ones on my '57 Spider...



What are they from?

My dad is a big Porsche/VW/Ghia guy, he says they are 356 mirrors... he looked for the holes but no luck. He said he'd look in the day light. Do you think the holes may be in a non accesable spot? or can you see up in there from the wheel well. I dont know im not there. Gosh that car is close. Notice the cross member just above the seat. jeepers...

Mr. Goring made a great observation on the other page i have for this car, notice the weld at the apex of the roll bar. IT was built with two pieces of tubing (obviously)... Its also in the GP class, during this time veloce's were not in the GP class. It was FP i believe... So, not my car, just another great looking Spider. But one heck of a coincidence.

Its always good to post things like this, the more eyes on it bring more observations.

Thanks for all your help everyone!

Does anyone have the results or images of the 1967 6 hour race at marlboro? A car under the number 83 was in that race and looks very similar to mine.

Thanks

Getting to the Braking system

Oh what great little things one may find when taking apart an old time capsule. After taking off the drums i saw a few little cooling tricks on the back plate. Notice the cooling holes drilled in, also notice the hub has been shaved a little? Or are they after market hubs? Kinda neat,

I think this is it!

Found this image At timelessracer.com. After showing it to all my car buddies up here in holland. We are all almost certain this is my car. Look at the roll bar, the circles on the hood and the old windscreen. To many similarities! Now i just need a name. The website says this image is from the 1967 6-Hour race of Marlboro.


Also, Im having a great local friend of mine, Nick Hardie paint on some numbers that have been faded away over time. He is amazing at making new paint look old. Has been written up in "The Rodders Journal" for an old Michigan Dirt track racer that he brought back to life. The article is called "Joe Bisakey's the double deuce coupe". Great stuff Nick!


Enjoy,

Phillip

Days go by, the car comes along, next is fuel tank and then engine!

All the little parts are so beautiful in these cars... i wish automakers would do the same today.


Enjoying a great summer in the garage!
