BaT Auction: 1967 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT Veloce Race Car

This post was originally published on this site

This 1967 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT Veloce was purchased in 1992 by the seller, who performed a refurbishment and modified it for street and track use. The car has reportedly been used exclusively for the track since 2005, participating in approximately three vintage events annually. Power is from a 1,750cc inline-four installed in 2015 and paired with a 5-speed close-ratio manual transmission and a GTA 5.12:1 differential. Further modifications include a bolt-in roll bar, Sparco seats, a fire suppression system, an Orion Engineering front anti-sway bar, Weber 45 DCOE carburetors, an aluminum radiator, and an 8-gallon fuel cell. A new racing clutch and stainless steel exhaust system were installed in the last two years. This Sprint is offered with Rocky Mountain Vintage Racing logbooks, partial records, spare powertrain components, and a clean Colorado title in the seller’s name.

A refurbishment was carried out by the seller from 1992 to 1994. Work performed since included repairs to the driver’s door and rear fender after a track incident along with several full-body repaints, the most recent of which was performed in 2015 after the rear wheel openings were flared.

Digital exhaust gas temperature gauges were installed in 2017, and a short shifter was installed in 2018. The 5-digit odometer is not connected and stopped at 57k miles. The seller believes the odometer rolled over during previous ownership and estimates he has added approximately 20k miles during his ownership. Total mileage is unknown.

The 1,750cc inline-four was installed in 2015 and features JE pistons, Total Seal rings, Carrillo connecting rods, a nitrided crank, Colombo & Bariani racing camshafts, oversized valves, and Weber 45 DCOE carburetors. Shifting is through a 5-speed close-ratio manual transmission paired with an Alfa GTA 5.12:1 blocked differential that is said to be only suitable for track use. Other equipment includes a Ron Davis aluminum radiator with an integrated oil cooler, electronic ignition, an electric fuel pump, and an 8-gallon fuel cell. A racing clutch was installed in 2017, and a stainless steel exhaust system was added in 2018.
