The Giulietta of 1954 introduced the second generation of unitary construction, four-cylinder Alfa Romeos. First built as a sedan, it went on to worldwide success. The factory quickly made a platform chassis available to specialist coachbuilders and it was on one of these that Pininfarina built this elegant bodywork.
This Guilietta was rebuilt two years ago and is described by the vendor as in 'execllent, fully restored condition'. It comes with German documents.
