1962 ALFA ROMEO GIULIETTA SPRINT
“It’s a Giulietta, but has FIA papers as a Giulia 1600,” explains owner and painter Noel Hutchinson. “It has the 1600 engine because it’s more competitive than the 1300, and it has a Giulia dash.” This is his stand-in rally car, bought a year ago. “I was going on a European tour, was desperate for a Giulietta and didn’t want to spend much – I looked all over Europe.” He found this car in Kent but soon realised that it needed lots of TLC. Just two of the issues were a gearbox that “jangled” and wiring “like a bird’s nest”. The car’s next outing will be a forthcoming Dutch tour.
