Giulietta/Giulia Sprint Owners,

This thread was originally intended to be a questions/answers forum for Sprint owners; it's however evolved into more of a Sprint registry of sorts that includes cars/owners globally, which is just as well. Please note that all Sprint owners are welcomed to submit their car's information by posting it here in this thread, or by sending it to me in an e-mail ([email protected]). If you would like to keep your real name confidential, please do not include it in your post (the BB handle suffices), and if you choose to e-mail me, advise me of your preferences. By the way, Sprint Zagatos (as well as its variations) are also welcomed, as I know a lucky few of you have one lurking around in the back of the garage.

Below is a list of information for each owner's car. Please provide me with the following information:

Car Year
Car Model (Normale/Veloce/Confortevole/Allegerita/Tall/Grande/Venti/Extra Hot (if you're confused, DON'T let me know))
Chassis Number (stamped on the firewall in the engine compartment, passenger side LHD)
Build Date (month and year of manufacture - this info. can be obtained by e-mailing: [email protected], to the attention of Mr. Marco Fazio (Mr. Magro retired)
Engine Number (stamped somewhere on the block)
Original Color (official Alfa code/name, please)
Photo Post (we're all suckers for a good photo - let me know if you need help posting photos)

LASTLY, if you find this thread useful, please kindly donate to the AlfaBB by scrolling to the top of this Web Page, and clicking on the "Site Donations" link in the green menu bar. Thanks in advance on behalf of all BB members.

Patrick-
Great idea. You can add my 1962 Giulietta Normale, mid-resto, originally white going to Acqua di Fonte (light blue-gray). Its currently down to bare metal, engine overhaul complete. staying as original as possible. I was hoping to have some photos up by now, but coming soon. Will update w/ chassis number too. #AR 350028, built Jan 62, sold new in Germany Jul 62. Engine #AR 00102 30158 (correct engine but missing firewall plates to confirm it's original).

Hey everyone,
If you have the factory build dates/sale dates from the Archivo Storico can you add them the your posts? Especially on the 750/101 transition cars, someone can start the process of confirming and/or correcting some of the published dates.

Patrick,

First, thanks for doing this. Great idea!

Info I got back from Archivio:
According to our documentation files, the chassis number AR 1493.05931 (1493 is the identification for Giulietta Sprint) originally corresponds to an Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint, manufactured on the 29th November 1957 and sold on the 4th July 1958 to Hoffman Motor Cars Co., New York, U.S.A.

It is titled as a 1959, but I'll see if I can get the state of Wisconsin to change that to 1958 when the time comes.

They had no info on what the original color was. According to paint on the un-repainted parts of the dash, it was a medium blue. If I can find the paint formula for the original paint, it will stay that color. When I get it out of storage I'll post the engine and body numbers.

Sopp

Our Sprints

Hi Patrick

Great idea, here are our 4 Sprints – info courtesy of Archivio Storico Alfa Romeo, Centro di Documentazione

According to our register the chassis number AR 1493.05262 originally corresponds to an Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint manufactured on the 28th August 1957 and sold on the 2nd October 1957 to Mr. John Palmar June from London, GB.
The body color is black (AR 901). The engine belongs to the serie AR 1315.​

According to our documentation files, the chassis number AR 1493.05880 originally corresponds to an Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint, manufactured on the 28th November 1957 and sold on the 18th February 1958 to Titan Industries Corporation from Johannesburg, South Africa.
The body colour is grey.​

The chassis number AR 101.02.160 835 originally corresponds to an Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint manufactured on the 14th October 1961 and sold on the 2nd February 1962 to Achberg Robinson from Port Elizabeth. The body color is Gardenia white (AR 005) and the engine belongs to the serie AR 00102.​

According to our register the chassis number AR 1493.21726 originally corresponds to an Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint, manufactured on the 11th January 1960 and sold on the 22nd January 1960 to Titan Ind. Corporation Ltd. from Johannesburg, South Africa.
The body color is Alfa red (AR 501).​

Interesting that my ’61 was sold to Achberg Robinson, in Port Elizabeth, where I now live – he must have been an importer as a friend’s Sprint was also sold to him in ’61. Titan Industries was the main importer in Johannesburg.

O5262 is column shift – Cambio Volante, while 05880 is floor shift – Cambio Cloche

Ciao
Greig
