Produced on January 12, 1957 and sold in New York on January 29, 1957, this splendid Giulietta Sprint type 750B with matching chassis and engine numbers spent its entire life in the United States until it was imported to Europe in the 2000s.
Purchased in 2011 by a collector in original condition and complete with all its parts, it has undergone a long professional restoration that lasted over five years, carried out with the support of all the best Alfa Romeo specialists.
The bodywork after being sandblasted and restored was subjected to an electrolytic anti-rust treatment.
The mechanics have been fully restored to 100% in every original detail.

In the first phase of restoration, completed in 2016, the car was brought back to its original condition as can be seen from the photographs below.

Special suspension with competition springs and shock absorbers were installed keeping the originals separately.

The original (new) steering wheel has been replaced with a wooden Nardi steering wheel.
