Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is a 1959 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint.

“The burgundy exterior finish was applied under previous ownership and is accented with chrome brightwork for the bumpers, grille surround, headlight rings, window trim, and rocker moldings,” the listing states. “Additionally, the car was customized with a Rockwell Golde sliding sunroof. Other features include an egg-crate-style grille and a driver-side mirror. The selling dealer has provided close-ups in the gallery to the right that show blemishes such as paint cracks, chips, lower panel corrosion, and brightwork patina.”

This Alfa Romeo’s interior is reupholstered with gray vinyl and ivory cloth front bucket seats with newer upholstery for the headliner and door panels. It features manual windows, lap belts, and a truck-mounted spare tire.

It’s powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder DOHC engine with a 38-millimeter Weber two-barrel carburetor. The engine was sourced from a later-model 101-series Alfa Romeo and is paired with a replacement five-speed manual transmission that sends power to the rear wheels.

The five-digit mechanical odometer reads 57,000 kilometers, but the selling dealer states the true mileage on the chassis is unknown. A re-core of the radiator, and a re-lining of the fuel tank using a Gas Tank Renu system was performed.
