THE ALFA ROMEO GIULIA

Although the 1900 had been its first successful post-war model, it was Alfa Romeo's next offering - the 1.3-liter Giulietta - which established the 'small car, big performance' formula that would characterize the Milanese marque's finest offerings from then on. The Giulietta's arrival in 1954 caused a sensation; demand outstripped supply at first, causing Alfa to rethink its production strategy and become, for the first time, a high-volume manufacturer. The original Giulietta Sprint Coupé of 1954 was soon joined by Berlina and Spider versions. Sporting elegant coachwork designed and built by Pininfarina, the Giulietta Spider was a huge success and continued virtually unchanged in 1.6-liter Giulia guise when the latter joined the Alfa 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. A bonnet air scoop, necessary to clear the larger engine's taller block, readily identified the new model. The capacity increase boosted maximum power of Alfa's classic twin-cam four from 80 to 104bhp 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 replaced by the Duetto in 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.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This wonderful Alfa Romeo Giulia 1600 spider is the perfect representation of what comes to mind when one thinks of a post war, open top Alfa. According to the Worldwide Alfa Romeo Owners Club, the car was built on September 14th, 1962 and sold to Newark New Jersey on September 29th, 1962. The car was ordered new wearing the classic red paint that is so synonymous with the brand. The interior sports a fitting two tone red and black color scheme which is protected by a black top. The Giulia has benefitted from being cared for by a single enthusiast for nearly a quarter century. In the early 1990's the car received an extensive restoration where no bolt was left unturned. The car was gone through from top to bottom, and in an effort to keep the car as original as possible, original parts were refurbished wherever feasible.

Since the restoration was completed, the car has been driven and enjoyed but thanks to regular maintenance and upkeep, the car is still in wonderful condition. The body still displays its factory "939" Pininfarina body number stamps on the bonnet, rear trunk lid, and rear tub, including the chassis number across the firewall. The spider's transmission is said to have been rebuilt just over 13,000 miles ago with new clutch and synchros, while the gear oil was recently changed a just over 1,000 miles ago. Within the last 5,000 miles, the car is said to have received all new brake hoses, cylinder seals and fluid, had the valves adjusted, oil changed, and filters replaced. Even though all of this was said to have been done such a short time ago, in preparation for the sale, the engine has received a tune up and fresh gaskets. Accompanying the car is its spare tire, jack, tools, and books.

With the summer just around the corner, this fun to drive and easy to maintain spider would be a great addition to any collector's stable – Hit the road or your local show circuit – regardless, good times are just around the corner.
