The car presented here, according to its chassis number, is a Type 101.23 1962 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider. The chassis number (AR101.23/373985) is correct for a Spider model and denotes it as a Giulia, although a very early 1962 example, just in the change-over period from the 1290cc Giulietta to 1570cc Giulia.
The car’s racing life commenced in the mid-1980s, when Keith Goring, the well-known Alfa enthusiast and founder of ‘Alfas Unlimited Inc.’ of Connecticut, used his extensive expertise to transform a rolling “rust and accident-free” Spider road-car into competitive race-car configured with a 1290cc engine.
For many years Keith owned and campaigned the car up and down the East Coast with much success at Lime Rock, Grand Bahamas, Watkins Glen, Daytona and Sebring. As such a well-known historic race car, it became known to many as simply ‘#92’, having now worn this number for three decades. The car was subsequently sold on to a Fred Schueddekopp of Washington State and again in 2009 to an owner who commenced a full bare-metal and mechanical restoration of it, painting the car in striking 'Blue Medio'.
During this next period, the car raced as part of the Northern California CSRG vintage series at Sears Point and Thunderhill. In 2012, it was re-fitted with a race-spec 1290cc engine producing 128 bhp built by Glenn Olivera of Berkeley, California whilst Jon Norman Racing installed a limited-slip rear-end and a Giulietta bonnet was also added. In this same year, due to its provenance and being the only Giulia Spider in either race, the car was entered and accepted into the Monterey Reunion and Pre-Reunion races.
The re-built engine has covered less than 500 km, whilst the head was more recently overhauled by Dan Marvin of Berkeley with all new valves and springs, with just one raced covered. The 5-speed close-ratio gearbox was also just been overhauled.
This race example with decentinteresting racing pedigree has been recently modified to 'barchetta' specification to be able to be enjoyed for road use in a more confortable way.

- new clutch
