1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA


A unique opportunity to purchase an immaculate and original 1600 GTA Stradale

A unique opportunity to purchase an immaculate and original 1600 GTA Stradale, restored to concours standards by Alfaholics with performance enhancements for road and road/rally events.

Manufactured on 6th September 1965 and first delivered to the French Alfa Romeo importer, this GTA has spent most of its life in the dry climate of the south of France. It has been known to us since the 1990s through a long-term customer of Alfaholics. We purchased the car in 2012 and carried out a bareshell restoration to our exacting standards. Evidence of its privileged life soon became apparent, as we found remarkably little corrosion and even the original peraluman 25 panels were found to be in good condition.

During the restoration, mechanically, the engine (AR00502/A block with original sand cast twin-plug head) was uprated with Alfaholics forged pistons and sport road cams to give a strong and well-mannered 145bhp for fast road & road/rally use. The gearbox rebuilt with full Alfaholics synchros & bearings and the axle rebuilt with new bearings and uprated with an Alfaholics LSD. The propshaft fully refurbished with new bearings and mounts. The suspension fully rebuilt with high quality powder coating & zinc plating of all components and benefits from being uprated with an Alfaholics fast road suspension kit to give superb handling & balance whilst maintaining excellent ride quality and comfort for road and rally use. Its original ultra-rare magnesium 6×14” GTA wheels were blasted, re-chromated and painted and are fitted with Avon CR6ZZ historic performance radial tyres. The original rare Dunlop brakes have been fully rebuilt and modified to Alfaholics FIA competition specifications to improve power & reliability. These full host of subtle Alfaholics upgrades provide a tremendous improvement to these GTAs, making them a delight for spirited road use, whilst also being competitive for regularity rally events like Tour Auto and Modena Cento Ore.

The car comes with an extensive history file, it has its genuine original French market handbook (incredibly rare to still be with the car and in good condition).

Since the restoration, the car has been used sparingly and looked after beautifully. The bumpers have been removed and are supplied with the car.

Unquestionably this is one of the finest examples of a 1600 GTA Stradale in existence and a fabulous and unique opportunity to purchase for the discerning collector.
