VIEWING BY APPOINTMENT ONLY PLEASE.

- According to the Alfa Romeo Museum archives this car was manufactured to North American specification on March 30th 1960 and invoiced by the factory to their dealer in Amsterdam, Holland on May 3rd 1960. The original colour was Alfa Red (as it is now).
- The early history of this car is unknown although the notes of a previous owner in the large history file state that it was sold to a Gentleman in the Forces while they were stationed in Germany.  It is not known if the car was registered in England when it was brought here (which was presumably in the early 1960’s), but apparently after about five years of enjoyment by the Gentleman and his family, it was placed in a barn in Kent where it remained for the next twenty five years.  It is stated in the notes that the engine was rebuilt in 1990.
- In April 1991 the car was registered with the DVLA by a Barry Bowyer of Ashford in Kent.  Whether Mr Bowyer was a family member of the Forces Gentleman is unknown.  In December 1995 he sold the car to a Nickolas Meeks of Northampton.
- Mr Meeks seemingly had the car prepared for the January 1996 edition of the Monte Carlo Historique Rally by Giulietta authority and expert Chris Robinson.
- In April 1996 the car was acquired by a John Vincent of Loughborough who was the previous owner who wrote the notes about the early history of the car.  It appears from these notes that were written prior to his sale of the car, that the Sprint was still in rally specification when Mr Vincent purchased it.
- In March 2000 the Sprint was purchased by the owner of the Vauxhall dealership Motorbodies of Luton (presumably a Mr Nigel Gray).  Mr Gray seems to be a regular on the historic rally scene and apparently purchased the car to do the Monte Carlo Historique Rally in, although it is believed that he never did.
- In January 2001 the car was purchased from Mr Gray by a Gentleman in Reading, Berkshire, and reverted back to road specification.
- The Gentleman used the car regularly during his twelve years of ownership and covered around 23,000 enjoyable miles, including returning the Sprint to Europe on several occasions when touring countries such as France, Belgium, and Spain.  The need for an alternative vehicle prompted the Gentleman to sell the car to us.
- During the Gentleman’s ownership major works included a body restoration and repaint in 2003, and an engine cylinder head overhaul in the summer of 2007.
- This Sprint is a good and sound example which drives well with its twin carburettor conversion (it is unknown when this useful modification was carried out).  Due to the regular usage of the car and the age of the paintwork there are a few marks on the body, however, the interior is in good condition.  A well priced example that can be enjoyed as it is without any concerns of paint damage, or repainted into an excellent example.
