Brown Giulia Sprint GTA

The 105-series coupé is one of the true Alfa Romeo classics, with its elegant lines, sublime handling and race-proven twin-cams. This particular example was purchased new in 1967 by Bruce Perry, a teacher from Pennsylvania. Built in Stradale form, Bruce was quick to convert it to Corsa spec and start campaigning it, competing in sprints and hillclimbs through to 1973, when he decided to try his hand at circuit racing. He raced in SCCA events through to 1976, and the car as you see it now is still in the '76 livery: Bicentennial Brown, no less.
It's been fully restored and is for sale, pristine and dripping with provenance, for the princely sum of $225,000. Got the cojones for it? Click here.
