Footnotes

  • Sporting elegant coachwork designed and built by Pininfarina, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider was a huge success and continued virtually unchanged in 1.6-litre Giulia guise when the latter joined the line-up in 1962. Launched at the Monza Autodrome on 27th June that year, the Giulia range was the work of a design team headed by one of the greatest of Italian automobile engineers, Dr Orazio Satta Puliga, who had been responsible for all the post-war Alfa Romeos. The capacity increase from 1,300 to 1,600cc boosted maximum power of Alfa's classic twin-cam four from 80 to 92bhp and the car's top speed to 109mph. Reliability was likewise enhanced and the larger engine was noticeably smoother and less fussy. A five-speed gearbox was standard on the Giulia 1600 Spider, which remained in production until 1966. Described by Cars Illustrated as 'probably one of the most delightful small sports cars which will ever be produced,' the Giulia Spider is certainly one of the most attractive Alfa Romeos of its day and remains highly regarded now.

    This right-hand drive Giulia Spider appears to have had three previous owners prior to the purchase by the current vendor in June 2001 (purchase invoice on file). The car was subject to a 'bare shell' restoration in 1986/1987 at a recorded cost of over £20,000 (see file). Following the restoration, the car is reported to have come 1st in class and 2nd overall at the Alfa Romeo Owners Club Day in 1988.

    Wishing to bring the Alfa up to the best possible mechanical condition, the vendor took the car to Jamie Porter, the renowned marque specialist in Royston, Hertfordshire, who has looked after it for the last 14 years (see bills totalling over £15,000 on file). In 2001 it was decided remove the original engine and replace it with a '1750' engine for greater flexibility, since when some 15,000 miles have been covered. Kept in storage, the original engine comes with the car. Following the work by Jamie Porter, Stuart Taylor, the AROC's Giulia Registrar, wrote in 2003: 'This is a superb example of the Alfa Romeo Giulia 101 Spider. The vehicle has been recently renovated to a very high standard, engine modifications and interior trimming.' Described as in generally very good condition, this beautiful Giulia Spider is offered with aforementioned paperwork; its original old-style logbook, handbook and service schedules; insurance valuations; a quantity of expired MoT certificates; V5 registration document and current MoT/tax.
