what’s it all about, alfie 2…

Dear diablog,

In Part 1 we concentrated on the Zagato, now the turn of the beautiful Giulietta Sprint.


which showed direct contrast to Glynsky’s rather shabby (but much loved) later version – though still a 1300.

Despite a number of shared characteristics, the pristine one had a dropped nose, plexiglass rear window and the obligatory lack of bumpers as befits a full race…





Despite all the speed goodies though, the interior was 100%+ ‘original’ spec for the period.

Gleaming interior paintwork and features


with everything of the right materials and in the right place.


Maybe, one day diablog, I will let myself loose on the rebuild of Alfreda – but then, maybe not!

Yours, diablog, wishing for perfection

  1. A classic should never be totally restored.
    Yours fits the bill of a good classic, enjoyed & loved

  2. Yep, I am with the Druid,
    and prefer Alfreda the way she was, w/out those headrests, or whatever they are called.

  3. The distance and time taken to find all the parts for restoration makes me silence with stress.
    What you guys need is a pre-loved classic in good condition which has build in twit tolerance.
    Smiles that has never crossed my mind regarding Glynsky.
