History This car is a Tipo 105.36 with Chassis number confirming a 1968 Giulia Sprint GT Veloce. It is thought to have a November 13, 1967 build date and is titled as 1967 model.
A strip down of the exterior, interior, engine compartment, and trunk revealed the car was originally white with a tan interior and had been repainted in red several times. Body repairs were completed where needed, and a repaint in Red (DBC 71818) was applied in 2010 by Kings Classics Restoration outside Indianapolis, Indiana.

Black upholstery and trim were reinstalled as part of the refresh. Updates include the wood-rimmed Hellebore steering wheel and AR-logo shift knob. A period-correct speedometer has replaced a non-original piece, and the 5-digit odometer shows 1,100 miles, with true mileage unknown.

Under the Hood
The car is powered by a non-original 1.6-liter twin-cam four sourced from an earlier Sprint GT, and the 5-speed manual sends power to a later-spec limited-slip differential. Exhaust updated with a stainless steel muffler and exhaust tip. Under hood updates also included a rebuild of the twin Weber DCOE carburetors, restoration of the wiring harness, and addition of the following:
1) New brake booster, silicon hoses, and gaskets
2) Centerline electronic ignition and alternator
3) Electric fuel pump supplementing original mechanical unit
4) Gear reduction starter
5) Powder-coated intake manifold and valve cover
6) Ceramic-coated exhaust manifold
7) Electric windshield washer pump, replacing foot pump and 2-speed Bosch wipers
8) Stainless steel screws throughout the engine compartment

Wheel and Tire
Newer 14″ GTA-style alloy wheels wear Prelli P4 tires.
