Footnotes

  • The Giulia TI (Turismo Internationale) was Alfa Romeo's flagship high-performance saloon in the 1960s. Introduced in 1962 and outwardly almost indistinguishable from the outgoing 1.3-litre Giulietta, the Series 101 Giulia boasted a more powerful and much less fussy 1,570cc engine in addition to welcome improvements to the previously feeble heating arrangements. Despite their boxy, unitary construction body, the Giulietta and Giulia were paragons of aerodynamic efficiency and possessed a distinctly sporting nature, the 92bhp produced by its classic, twin-cam, four-cylinder engine making the Giulia TI a genuine 100mph car. Under the skin the Giulia featured a five-speed manual gearbox, independent front suspension, coil-sprung live rear axle and - apart from early cars - disc brakes all round. Announced in April 1963, the Giulia TI Super was a lightweight and more powerful 'homologation special' built for international touring car racing, only 501 of which were produced. Alfa Romeo missed the deadline for 1963 homologation, so the TI Super was forced to compete in the Gran Turismo class that year before being accepted for touring car racing in 1964.

    The racing version of the Giulia TI Super was, as usual, the responsibility of the factory's Autodelta competitions department, which had been founded in 1961 as an independent company by Carlo Chiti and Ludovico Chizzola, and subsequently absorbed by Alfa Romeo. This particular Giulia TI Super is generally accepted as being one of the cars prepared by Autodelta for the 1965 Sebring 3-Hour race in the USA, run on 26th March that year. Driven by long-time Alfa Romeo works driver Teodoro Zeccoli, this car finished 6th overall and 3rd in class behind the winning Ford Lotus Cortina of Jim Clark. The Alfa also competed in the SCCA GT2 class in 1979 driven by Ernie Walclen, Johen Boloul and a Mr Cary (photographs on file).

    On static display for the preceding 20-plus years, the Giulia was purchased in 2008 by the current vendor from American Alfa Romeo specialist Tom Zat and imported into Japan. It had previously been restored in 1982 for static display purposes, complete with correct lightweight body panels and the lightweight grille and taillights. The running gear was restored at the same time as the body, while the engine is a rebuilt 1,850cc 'Super Talladega' unit claimed to produce in excess of 200bhp. It features the full oiling block; hardened crankshaft and con-rods; 12:1 compression, big-valve cylinder head; cold air box; oil cooler; lightweight bell housing; heavy duty clutch; and twin Weber 45DCOE14 carburettors, a type used only for the Alfa Romeo TI Super, GTA and TZ. There are two alternative transmissions, one close-ratio, the other wide-ratio, and two differentials with final drive ratios of 5:12:1 and 4:55:1. The brakes are ATE discs all round and the car has Koni adjustable shock absorbers. Other noteworthy features include Autodelta full roll cages; original Campagnolo magnesium wheels (7Jx14); Autodelta air intake; and a spare TI Super engine block, 'AR00516.00264'.

    Included in the sale is an SCCA logbook; US title and bill of sale; a quantity of Autodelta technical papers; Alfa Romeo SpA Certificates of Conformity; and many other documents. A rare opportunity to acquire one of these highly desirable ex-works Alfa Romeo 'homologation specials' prepared by Autodelta and possessing in-period race history.
