Alfa Romeo Veloce, the Racing Giuliettas, 1956 - 1963 - eBay (item 170598871185 end time Feb-13-11 07:50:46 PST)


This rare, out-of-print, 174 page, hardcover with perfect dust jacket volume is the authoritative work on the extraordinary racing Giuliettas of the 1950s and 1960s. The 8 x 10" book can absolutely pass for new and is in the condition you would expect to find on a booksellers shelf although it was published in England in 1989. This is a no reserve auction. If you can find a copy elsewhere expect to pay upwards of $200.

This book represents a labor of love by two dedicated Alfa Romeo enthusiasts, who have made a life-long study of the exquisite Zagato-bodied 1300cc Giuliettas of the late fifties and early sixties.

Their research has resulted in a detailed history of the origins, design and development of SZ and SZT Alfas, together with an exhaustive analysis of Giulietta competition history in Europe and the USA. The book also includes comprehensive tables of racing results.

Contemporary cars that bear comparison are examined, and a detailed study and description of the work of leading Alfa tuners of the day is provided, together with much previously unpublished data.

The text is supported by an unrivaled array of over 200 photographs and other illustration from the authors' private collections, covering all aspects of the SZ, SZT and Alfa's parallel project, the Giulietta SS. Many photographs in color of surviving cars are featured as well.

The contents of the book include chapters as follows:
I THE RACE BEGINS
II FROM THE SZ, THE SVZ
III "THE HORSEPOWER CRAZE"
IV THREE ABARTH ALFAS
V FROM SPINTA TO SPECIALE
VI THE EIGTH GIULIETTA
VII SCULPTURE FROM VIA GIORGINI
VIII CORRE E VINCE (RACE AND WIN)
IX CROSSING THE FINISH LINE

In addition the book includes Road & Track road tests for the Giulietta Spyder Veloce, Sprint Speciale and Sprint Zagato
