1 For Sale: 1963 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint This Giulia Sprint (101.12) VIN number AR was manufactured on 31st August 1962 and sold to Hoffman Motor Car in New York on September 29. It was bought as a "roller" in late 2009 when a full 95-point restoration began. That it was a 95-point was due to creature comforts such as a modern interior mirror. The original 1600 had been lost in time and as it was to be driven in mountains, a built 2 Liter engine was installed. As some track time was possible, the 4.56 diff includes an Alfaholics limited slip. Instruments were done last May. New, but standard rate springs are enhanced by Koni Classic Red dampers and a Dave Rugh sway bar. Moderate performance springs and shocks would go with the car. A good "Normale" 1600 is available. Wheels are alloy replicas of the SZ-style magnesium wheels used in competition in the day. Tires are 165/80/15 Vredestein Classic Sprints. All interior panels are sound-dampened with Hushmat. The plating work is perfect. The intention of the build was to provide a presentable ride that was quick and quiet over any road surface. The interior trim provides a charming story. Dave Gallagher does the interior trim for RX Autoworks and he said that the last Alfa he did was the Collier 2900 B. And as it turned out, the next Alfa he did was David Cohen's 1750 Figoni Coupe. Dark blue leather with charcoal carpeting and a dark blue exterior. The Sprint has been driven less than 2,000 miles. The following pages review the model's history and the restoration of this Sprint through to completion. Additional pictures can be seen at

2 Restoration of a 1963 Alfa Romeo Sprint Coupe March 5, 2010 Beginning just after World War I Alfa Romeo designed and built cars to compete in the most trying road races in history the Targa Florio on the back roads of Sicily and the Mille Miglia, which was a thousand-mile race from Brescia to Rome and back. The first Mille event was run in 1927 and from 1928 to 1947 Alfas virtually dominated when in 1948 the mantle was passed on to Ferrari. Ferrari started with Alfa Romeo as a driver in 1920 and in the 1930s ran the company's racing team. After World War II Ferrari started on his own with some of Alfa's engineers. In the immediate post-war period Alfa decided to supplement the building of high-priced cars with the introduction of the Giulietta series with a coupe, open sports car and small sedan all based upon the same platform and drive train. Designed by one of the most successful racing teams in history the series were intended to be relatively high-production cars that would win the 1300 cc class. They did and the Sprint, for example, was outstanding in placing 11th overall in the 1956 Mille Miglia. It won its GT1300 class and was faster than the GT1600 (Porsche 356 Carrera) and GT2000 classes (Maserati A6GCS). Ferrari sports-racers took the top four places and a "Tour de France" took fifth with a time of 12 hours and 30 minutes. The Sprint was 36 minutes behind, but 26 minutes ahead of the GT1600 class. Journalists of the day would not have been in error to have described the coupe as a small "TDF". Bertone designed and built the Giulietta Sprint and in 1963 the coupe was upgraded to a Giulia with a 1600 engine, five-speed gear box and the "big" three-shoe front brakes. Enhanced performance was complemented with a luxurious interior, including a leather dash with French stitching and leather tie down straps for Bertone luggage. Around 1963 Italian coachworks began to build more luxurious GTs based upon performance cars. Bertone designed the Giulia Sprint and Sprint Special, Maserati had the Sebring and Mistral; Ferrari had the Lusso. 2

3 The first picture show the Sprint in White as it arrived at the shop. The body is straight and the interior is a mess. The second photo shows it after it was stripped and mounted on a dolly for the trip for the media-blast used to get rid of old paint, rust and sound-deadening asphalt. Media used was pulverized brick and talc, which revealed perforations in the passenger floor wells. These will be patched with new steel. 3

4 The third picture shows it after body prep and paint, which is Midnight Blue. The engine was dated as 1967 and not original to the car. Another engine and the five-speed transmission have been rebuilt and up-graded. The rearend has been sent to England for a rare 4.3 ring and pinion set and modern limited slip differential. David Ledlin at Auto Restore heads up the re-build. 4

5 April 27, 2010 Performance depends upon acceleration, speed, handling and braking. Alfa featured the biggest and best drum brakes ever built for a light sports car. For a few years these were superior to disc brakes. The second set of photos show the left front suspension with the enormous brake drum with helical cooling fins. These were 13.5 inches in diameter and 3.5 inches wide. The highest performing models include three leading shoes, a set up not used by any other manufacturer. The swept area of the brakes was greater than on the 3-liter Ferraris, as well as on the Mercedes 300 SLR. 5

6 The second, third and fourth pictures show the front suspension as cleaned up and replaced. 6

7 April 27, 2010 The next picture shows the interior with some hand-scraping prior to the media-blast. The following picture shows the same area after the blast and paint. It also shows the metal segments used to replace the rusted out parts of the floor. This will be coated with "Bullet- Proof" paint that is as tough as its name. All metal underneath was treated as well. 7

8 October 29, 2010 Restoration of the rear axle included changing the final drive ratio from 5.12, which is too short for a two liter engine, to a I had hoped to get a 4.3 but the manufacturer could not guarantee that it would be quiet enough when not on a race track. Also, the latest limited slip is installed and set up for highway use. Considering the final drive ratio, gearing should be very good for climbing mountain roads. Fortunately the backing plates needed to fit the big brakes to were found and the rest of the work was cosmetic. 8

9 Interior metal has been covered with Hushmat which reduces noise and heat transfer. Note the restoration of the window-winding mechanism. 9

10 November 15, 2010 The first shot shows the Sprint as it arrived at the shop. The previous owner had stripped the car and painted it white. The old Fergat steel wheels are only for moving it around. The front view shows the project with the engine and gear box removed. 10

11 Similar view with engine, grill and headlights installed. The plating shop did an outstanding job. Three-quarter front shot shows the new wheels, which are replicas of the original works magnesium ones built for competition. These are of modern structural design and in aluminum weigh some three pounds less than the standard steel wheels. Magnesium replicas are available but at prohibitive cost. 11

12 November 23, 2010 Dave Ledlin rolling the Sprint for transportation to the upholstery shop. He also found a set of 1963 British Columbia plates. Almost ready to go.. 12

13 At Phoenix Upholstery in North Vancouver. November 29, 2010 These two pics show the correct "snakebite" headliner. More of a rear-view of the headliner. Could not find one more rear quarter window so two of Lexan have been made and will be installed once the interior is finished. A triangle of 3/8" steel was TIG welded to the bottom window frame and the B pillar. This is drilled and threaded to secure the bolt for the top fastener of the three-way seatbelt. 13

14 December 1, 2010 The new rear shelf was made by RX Autoworks. The slots accommodate leather straps used to secure luggage placed behind the seats. Sprints were also intended as grand tourers. Shelf as covered and installed. 14

15 Door panel is finished. Rear Quarter Panel. 15
