1969 ALFA ROMEO GIULIA COUPE BERTONE 1750 VELOCE SERIE 1 _Rare first series _Veloce version _Chassis AR1368112 _Engine AR000548B6236 _Matching Numbers _French grey card Heir to the pre-war 1750s, the GTV sprint coupe represents the heyday of Alfa Romeo in the late 1960s. Everyone wanted to drive a 1750, from Paris to Rome, via New York and Los Angeles. Replacing the Giulietta Sprint coupé, which ensured Alfa Romeo's revival in the sports coupé segment, the Milanese firm struck a blow in 1963 with the presentation of the Giulia GT. Its strong and balanced design was the work of a young designer, Giorgetto Giugiaro, who was working at Carrozzeria Bertone at the time, which earned the car the nickname "Bertone coupé". Throughout its career, the Giulia coupé was successful both commercially and in competitions, where the GTA versions (1300 and 1600) won numerous titles. The 1750 cc version (Tipo 105.44) appeared in 1967. The engine was inherited from the Berlina and drove this beautiful coupe to more than 190 km/h. Many improvements were made for this model: the braking system was doubled, the seats and the steering wheel were modified. For many it was the best version of the "Bertone coupe" with its sober and classic dashboard and an engine that was always ready to rev. The 1750 GT Veloce was even raced at the Kyalami 9-hour race in 1969 and the Polish Spring Grand Prix in 1971. Our model is a Bertone 1750 GT Veloce coupe from September 1969 in its original 'Rosso Alfa' colour. Between 2003 and 2006, the 1750 GTV will benefit from a thorough restoration, everything will be removed, reworked or replaced. 7000 euros of parts invoices justify this restoration, not counting the hours of labour. Engine, gearbox, axle, body, everything has been done. The car offered is very much in line with the original, both inside and out. Our road test confirmed the car's good general handling. This is a great opportunity to treat yourself to the most enviable post-war 1750 and to enjoy the sweet melody of the twin cam.
