Footnotes


  • Introduced in 1962 and outwardly almost indistinguishable from the preceding 1.3-litre Giulietta, the 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 (160km/h) car. Under the skin the Giulia featured a five-speed manual gearbox, independent front suspension and a coil-sprung live rear axle. 'Few cars can rival the 1600 Alfa for sheer driving enjoyment, and the keen driver devoting his full attention to driving it will be amply rewarded,' enthused Car & Driver.

    The beautifully presented Giulia offered here is a very rare '1st Series' model with the column gear change (five-speed), drum brakes, and six-person accommodation courtesy of the bench-type front seat. Very few were made to this '1st Series' specification before the introduction for 1964 of separate front seats, a floor-mounted gear change, and disc brakes. Finished in stunning topo grigio (mouse grey) paint with light grey cloth interior, the car benefits from some €33,000 spent on a comprehensive restoration of the body and mechanicals and performed well on a recent test drive. A very rare find, and even rarer in such beautiful condition, this stunning early Giulia is offered with Alfa Romeo Register passport, and its original Italian libretto.
