The previous owner began racing Alfa Giuliettas at VIR in the early 60s and
began this classic step nose GTV restoration project for vintage racing over 20
years ago. Bought from his estate, it has no title.
Never wrecked but had rusted floors and rockers when the project began. It
was stripped/dipped bare metal (original color unknown) and the body shell
mounted on this custom rolling stand. Two years ago this bare chassis was rolled
outside the garage where it remained and the bare metal acquired a new pattern
of rust. The chassis carriage frame has new casters and moves about the garage
- Fortunately, the hood, doors, and trunk lid remained stored indoors. They
are very straight with minor rust holes. I was pleasantly surprised how well
they lined up, after simply cleaning the threads and bolting them on.
- This chassis is amazingly straight, body panels are readily available and
replacing floors/lower body panels will bring it to life again. With the upper
body shell thinned by chemistry and oxidation, this GTV will be a Super
- The factory dash mounting points have been cut away. The taillight holes
have been cut out, in an effort to mount 1972-74 taillights. Don't let
the inner headlight mounts fool you either. They have been tack welded in and
are easily removed.
- The glass windscreens are in pretty good condition, with rotten rubber
holding the aluminum trim. The front and rear side vent glasses are also in
good condition. Both door glasses have vertical scratched from rolling up and
- The rear fiberglass fender flares have been tacked on with a few sheet
metal screws. They are older reproductions. The only other trim that is
included are the headlight rings, grille (not a step nose grille,) and the
stainless door sills.
This project car was acquired at a huge garage estate sale and many pieces
remained undiscovered. This rare early "step nose" example is an excellent
platform for a vintage race or modified street/track car, and worthy of a first
class build. Properly restored Veloce models are rare and destined to bring six
figures in the near future.
