This ‘67 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT Veloce was sourced in 2006 from Arizona. From this solid base an extensive no expense spared restoration was carried out and completed in 2008. Conceived to be a competitive addition to the European classic rally scene, this build has been indulged with numerous high quality parts & performance upgrades and once prepared, the car was entered in several events  like The Tulip Rally & the SLS (Scheveningen – Luxembourg – Scheveningen) before being acquired by the present owner in 2014.

History

In 2007 a Dutch Classic Rally Enthusiast commissioned restoration specialist Blankemeijer to source and build a competitive road rally car. A dry, corrosion-free ex-Arizona ’67 Guilia Sprint GT Veloce in Giallo Ocra was sourced from Alfa Specialist Steutel and was then completely dismantled before a bare metal repaint in Alfa Rosso 501 was carried out along with minor GTA body modifications such as the elegant doorhandles. No expenses were spared in building a fast, fun & reliable road rally machine;

A high-spec 2 litre engine was built by Van Giersbergen & paired to a new gearbox with hydraulic clutch. A 2 litre LSD together with 2 litre  brake system including Ferodo DS2500 pads were installed. Steutel rally springs combined with Bilsteins dampers ensure fantastic roadholding. The interior although purposeful, is extremely refined & retains road-rally appointments such as: roll-bar, Halda Tripmaster, Don Barrow lenses, compass etc. The wiring loom was enhanced to manage additional rally equipment such as additional lighting as well as interior appointments like power windows.
