I started to restore my first alfa (giulia 101 sprint) when I got my driving license, at 17.
Back then my alfa was worth a couple of thousand. Now maybe 30/40000. But I did it slow and correct, though nowhere near concours...I started with a rust free chassis and body, with clapped out mechanics.
If your veloce has the correct veloce engine that came with the car (and that is a major point!), IS indeed a real veloce with all the bits (not just a spider with a couple of double webers bolted on), then you are looking at a very wanted/prized collector's alfa romeo.
Hence, there is only one way to restore this, and that is not with the aid of youtube videos
Once you hit rust, youtube can't and won't help I'm afraid (
), this has to be done by people who have worked on these cars before.
so as mentioned above: post good photos (not just the outside paint, but under car, rockers, under carpet of the floors etc, etc, etc) and you will get a more precise evaluation of the situation.
If it is solid and you just want it running (imo, a far better position to leave it so, than tackling a restoration without the learned skills) then a clever 18 year old can manage that...with help of the many guys on here.
What you don't want to do is start pulling apart a real veloce........it'll have more value as it is now, than if bondod together to make it 'look' nice.
Great project, keep us informed....any nice sharp photos will be gladly drooled upon by all of us 'alfisti'
You can write the alfa factory in Italy for precise details of model, year, ext. and interior colours as originally delivered..........costs 20 or 30 euros and they just need the full chassis number.
