Early Step: 1964 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT

This 1964 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT (chassis AR606924) is an early example of the beautiful Bertone-styled coupe. While we appreciate all variants of these 105/115 series two doors, there is something to be said for the purity of the original stepnose design, especially in bare, bright white. Find this one here on eBay in Novi, Michigan with reserve not met. Special thanks to BaT reader George C. for this submission.
The ad states that the current owner spent over 10 years
at an Alfa specialist shop. Having owned the car for some 27 years, this certainly seems like the sort of person we would look to buy from. That said, while you can do much worse than Panasports, we would look to source a set of OEM or GTA Veloce wheels.
One of the most striking ways in which these early cars differ from the later ones is in the interior. Far more pared-down than later revisions, the simplicity of early stepnose interior design is functional and handsome. We especially appreciate the cloth-inset seats and clean, uncluttered dash.
Under the hood is Alfa’s well-known twin cam, this time displacing 1750cc. Having been recently rebuilt, it has been the recipient of several upgrades including 45mm DCOEs and a Shankle header. The odometer reads 84,640 km, though the seller can’t confirm whether or not this is an accurate reading.
Here is a shot of the VIN number. According to the seller, this number “originally corresponds to an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT (105.02), manufactured on the 3rd September 1964 and sold on the 21st September 1964 in New York, USA.”
Looks and sounds like a winner to us, especially if the reserve proves to be reasonable.
