Zat-Inspired: 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale

Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider

This 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale has been customized in the style of the famous Tom Zat SSZ cars, and is offered by a SoCal alfa owner whose cars we used to see on offer quite often but haven’t seen in a couple of years. The bulk of the modifications are to the body and trim, and appear to be reasonably well done, if not to everybody’s taste. Give it TZ wheels and vintage seats and we might just keep the primer. Find it here on eBay in Pasadena, California. Special thanks to BaT reader Rob D. for this submission!

Custom body work included radiusing of the rear wheel wells, adding a fender lip on all corners, removal of bumpers and trim, and satin black paint. The radiused fenders are surprisingly effective, and we like that the wheels have been brought flush with the fenders. Some deep painted steel wheels in the style of the Zat cars would also be good to have at the ready.

On the interior, the seller has replaced the original seats with a set of Recaro KRs, shortened to fit. While the bolsters would certainly be welcome in spirited driving, we think the bulk of the new seat does not really suit the lithe little Alfa. Otherwise the interior appears to be unmolested.

Got it in 68 with 12kmi.I put an Abarth exhaust onit.It had a hardtop for the winter and was warm and dry.In the spring I would take it off and drive with a tonneau cover so only the drivers area was open with the top down.The heater on full blast and I was comfortable.I put in a Blaupunkt AM/FM which was a bog deal back then.I has a bookshelf speaker for the rear seat.I would tune the radio in FM between stations and it would pick up the ignition system.I would accelerate with just the front speaker then at 4krpm turn on the rear speaker.It sounded like a jet taking off,especialy when I was stoned.
