Need History on an SS

Question of the day…who owns this SS? I found this SS while surfing and was wondering who might have it and be able to provide me with some numbers for my Sprint Speciale Register. (click to link) Here is what the EBay ad said: ”

On Dec-01-12 at 07:40:40 PST, seller added the following information:

This is a 1 owner car from new. The car was sold new in May of 1965 in NYC. The purchaser was a military officer that shipped the car to Italy where he was stationed. Upon arrival to Italy the owner had the car resprayed in red from its original white. The owner also replaced his MPH speedometer with a Kilometer speedometer. ( 37000 original kilometers) The mileage on the car was 13 when this was performed. The original U.S. version speedometer will be a part of the sale. The car was shipped back to US after the military tour was completed.The Alfa was shipped from Antwerp back to the USA in 1969. Several more years of use and the car went into a barn to be stored. This car has been sitting dormant for over 25years. This car is very complete. This car has its matching number engine 1600cc 129HP twin cam 4 cylinder. The interior is original, the paint is a repaint from white to red. The car has rust in the passenger door and the fender bottoms. The floor is in tact. the trunk has rust in the bottom from water settling in thru the trunk seal. The windshield was broken by a farm animal as the story goes …so in 1990 the owner ordered from Italy, a new windshield for this car, and that part will be included with the sale. This car comes with the documentation to support all claims for the rare 1600cc Giulia SS. Pictures of the car from 76 and 86 will also support the history of this automobile.”

About alfadoc

I have been involved in Alfa Romeo cars since 1970 when I bought my 1600 Veloce spider. It was in 1972 that I started the Veloce Register for 1600 cars. It was in 1998 that I added the Sprint Veloce, 750 Spider Veloce and Sprint Speciale registers. Currently I own 4 Alfas: 1600 Spider Veloce, 67 Super, 71 GTv and a 94 164Quadrifoglio.
