Greetings from New York

Hello, I have recently purchased my first Alfa, a 1960 Giulietta Spider. This car had been tucked away in a heated garage for the last 43 years. Original owner passed away. Underneath the accumulated dust I found the original Graphite Grey paint in remarkable condition. Will post photos when finished with the detail work. The engine will be coming out for a rebuild. I'm sure that I will have many questions as I progress. My intention is to leave the car as original as possible and still be able to drive it.

I swear if i was in the U.S., all i would be doing would be running door to door to find pieces of art like these.
Such a treasure
