@ Tom: Was this after a full resto or just a very, very thorough (and beautiful) engine completion?

Dan, it was a full restoration that was completed in 2008. See here for an overview: '59 Giulietta Spider Veloce Restoration (750)

All the best,

I will post photos of my engine compartment when the car is restored. I am going to restore the car as original as possible. I am using the original engine, trans, differential, Webers, cold air box and will not polish anything or chrome parts. My Father purchased the car when it was two or three months old and I know what the original car looked like. The cam cover and cold air box were not polished. The cam cover nuts were black oxide. The head nuts and washers were black oxide. The engine hoist clamp was zinc plated. I know that it looks better if everything was polished or chrome plated, but owners raced the cars and did not buy the car as a show car. The car is covered with chrome plated bumpers, headlight rings, grilles, license plate holder, front light and rear light assemblies, and many other items and does not need anymore chromed parts.
I am amazed that both of my Milanos have only chrome antennas.
I saw that Ford powered Alfa. It reminded me of my friend's Chevy powered Austin Healy.
