Long story short: this Giulia is no trailer queen, but a nice driver fitted with full roll cage, fast road suspension, bucket seats, and full racing harnesses. I am currently in the process of building a mildly fettled 2000 engine for it. There are also tales of rust, panel cutting and welding, painting, hunting down parts, and also of course the previously mentioned winter rally adventure...

Alfa Romeo Sprint Speciale is a Racing Statement

Revived in 1988, today’s Carrera Panamericana is still dangerous, fast, grueling, and addictive, as driver Conrad Stevenson can attest. Stevenson got his first taste of the race in a friend’s Studebaker in 2001. After a couple more years of participating in friends’ cars, Stevenson decided it was time to build a car of his own, in this case a 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale.

It was fitting that the first prototype for the Sprint Speciale debuted in Torino in 1957. While the production version took another two years it was clearly influenced by the more production-aimed BAT 9. And while the BAT series was fantastic, almost like fantasy-sketches in appearance, they were successful in one place where the Sprint Speciale failed. One of a few failures, in fact...

Many folks think that classic cars are unsuitable for daily driving and perhaps if you own a Ferrari 625/250 TRC this is true. But isn't it a joy to drive your classic? And doesn't it make sense to maximize the feelings and fun you have when cruising or attacking canyons? I think it absolutely does.

This Alfasud's current owner, one of only three, describes it as being in "excellent condition." The Giugiaro-styled body has never been welded and the front and rear calipers–which are connected to inboard brakes–have recently been reconditioned.

This Alfa may be black and Blu (Olandese), but it's far from beaten up–even with (an assumed) 125,160 kilometers. According to its owner, it's "original and without modifications" and 99 percent free of corrosion. It also includes an "original log book and some service history."

When I saw a photo of this car I knew I had to have it but knew absolutely nothing about Alfa Romeos. So what did I do? I bought it, in spite of the fact that it had been neglected, and proceeded to nickel-and-dime my way through it for about ten years, until the car just couldn't take it anymore and I enlisted some professional help.

Every Friday night was a social event, old and young alike would come to the garage, admire the car, talk about their day, and then talk about the car. The old men loved it and remembered it from their youth, the young guys loved its rarity. I remember sitting in it while Angelo tuned the carburettors, and I'd dream of getting my license and driving it.

In spite of its humble, utilitarian roots the masterful designers at Pininfarina managed to massage the Alfa Romeo Duetto into a pretty, eternal design. If you’ve ever seen one drive past then you know that its silhouette is a pure ‘speed-form’; it’s a rolling, directional sculpture, like a hurtling raindrop.

What I love about our car is that it is something we built ourselves. My wife took the interior to bare metal, refreshed it, and put it all back together again. She also spent many nights and weekends over six months helping me sand the car down, repairing the metal and rust, filling the body, and finally learning to prime, base and clear coat the car ourselves.
