History: The 1300 Giulietta Spider Veloce was ahead of its time when first introduced in the mid 1950’s. It has a beautiful Pininfarina designed body, a 1.3-liter DOHC inline four-cylinder engine, and a four-speed transmission. It was a true roadster without a quarter vent window, and when the soft top was down, it was flush with the rear deck. Only 2,796 were built during its production run. Approximately 1,000 of the highly desirable 750F Series like this car were produced. They are an example of Italian design and engineering excellence. According to factory records, 149504663 was completed on August 27, 1958, and delivered to the Hoffman Motor Car Company of New York.
After sitting stagnant since the 1970s, it was purchased by Los Angeles based Alfa Romeo enthusiast, Brandon Adrian, who commissioned a complete restoration of the vehicle by Anthony Rimicci of Santos Italian Car Service of Los Angeles. Selling to its next owner, it comes to Grand Prix Classics in La Jolla, California, where extensive details are carried out to complete the restoration to the highest level; resulting in a Best in Class Concours Award in 2023.
