1957 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider - prima serie (750 D). This rare first series Spider has just undergone a thorough reconditioning by our Italian experts. This is a numbers matching US spec car that was built on March 6 1957 and first sold on March 1957 to the Hoffman Motor Car Co. in New York.

This example has been restored to a high standard starting with a very solid, low original mileage find. Paint, interior, trim and mechanicals have all been well taken care of, and the car drives and presents very well.

Designed by legendary house of Pininfarina, the truly classic lines of the Giulietta Spider are graceful and sensual, perfectly suited to the character of this sports car. Under the hood is a 1.3 liter version of the Afla Romeo DOHC 4- cylinder fitted with a simple to tune dual barrel downdraft carburetor. Compression is a modest 8:1 and power quoted 69 HP (CUNA) at 6000 rpm. Transmission is a rugged 4-speed manual. With a curb weight well under 2000 lbs this provides lively performance and pleasant cruising. Top speed is right at 100 mph.

At 152.8” long on an 86.6” wheelbase, the Spider is neatly sized and very well proportioned. The ****pit is relatively roomy for a sports car and the trunk is of quite useful dimension.

The Spider features a robust unibody with front suspension by control arms and a well located solid axle with coil spring and hydraulic dampers at all four corners. The ride is quite civilized in concert with excellent handling for the period. Overall production of the Giulietta Spider is quoted at 14,300 units over the long production run, so they are very rare today.
