Smile 58/59 750F restoration process & parts needed

I have just started to restore my 58 or 59 Giulietta Spider Veloce 750F SWB with door vent windows, which I purchased in Jan. 2012. Its all original but hasn't been on the road since 1966. I have just gotten the gas tank relined but now I realize I need a new/replacement in gas tank filter.
Besides that I cracked the 1300CC pulley bolt trying to free up the engine.
Would anyone have these parts or know where I can purchase such items?
I would appreciate any help anyone can give me. I am new to the forum
and plan to post pics soon. The car is celeste blue with some surface rust.
All in all it is in respectable shape for having sat for so many years. All it
needs is an endless source of time & money.
Thanks in advance.

Hi and welcome to the Board,

Have you checked with the usual vendors, Alfastop (UK), Classic Alfa (UK), OKparts (Germany), Hein Brand (Germany), AFRA (Italy), Re-originals (USA), Centerline Alfa (USA) etc?

Thank you and thanks for the tips on where to look. I have tried some but not all of the vendors. BTW the chassis no# is 1495-05035 with engine no#31832. Hope to have it up and running by the end of the year.

Is this the crank bolt that you need? Contact Karen at fastalfa1@aol.com if interested.
It is a correct crank bolt for a 750 series 1300.

Welcome to the board 59. Good to see another east coast Giulietta. What part of the east are you in?

Hi Alex,
I am actually in DC but got the car from the second owner who lived in McLean, Va.
I think the original owner also lived in the N. Va. area so it has been here all it's life I think.
BTW I also have an 85 GTV-6 and an 86 Spider.
It's becoming an addiction for which there is no cure. More is better in some cases.

58,
DC is not far, about 2 hours. If you ever find yourself in Waynesboro or Charlottesville area, look me up. Also, if you haven't done so already, I recommend you get involved with DCAlfas. They are a growing club that is very active. You can find more info at dcalfas.org . My Giulietta is pictured on the front page of the most recent newsletter.

Vent windows on 750 Spiders

59 ARG, welcome to Giulietta ownership, it's a good vice to have !!

To clarify the vent window vs no vent window thing on 750 Spiders............vent windows are the European Spec, while non-vent windows are the US Spec - seeing as the majority of Giulietta production went to the USA, odds favour that this is the spec we most often see.

The vent windows were standardised when the wheel base was lengthened circa chassis 08000.

We have 1495*02806, an October '57 Normale with vent windows & I know of quite a few others in this range with vent windows.

Here is 02806 with one of her siblings 10990 - a '60 Interim car with the fixed hood.

Pictures, pictures, we need pictures of your Spider......

Ciao
Greig

Some 101's

Caio Greig,
Thanks for the info about the vent windows. I did not realize they were added to the Euro spec cars. This confirms then what the seller told me. He said it was brought into the US by an individual and not thru Hoffman Motors of NY. Nice photo of your Alfa. I must say they are beautiful in red. If you will tell me the process I will post some photos. Not sure how I should do it?

Kerry,

To post pics, go to "New reply" then scroll down to "Manage Attachments" and from there, uploading pics procedure is no different from doing it anywhere else.

My '60 Spider 10990 was originally AR301 Celeste Blue, now resale red courtesy of a previous owner, the correct interior colours with a celeste car is black seats with baby blue piping.

In the early 750's, the rubber mats & carpets were bound with a blue binding, but by '59 the carpets only were bound with blue binding & the rubber mats were unbound.

The interior of my Oct. 27, 1958 Giulietta is black with faded blue piping. The carpet also has blue trim on the edges. Both of the items though are fading due to age. BTW I have tried to post pics several times but always get the message upload of file failed. Could it have to do with the file size? How can I make the pics 249K or less? I can't seem to do it properly. Need help once again please.
Thanks all,
Kerry
