|1967 Giulia Super 1.3|
|Engine: 1.3 L | Mileage: 11,890 km | Price: €16,800|
The Alfa Romeo Giulia (105 series) was one of the first automobiles to utilise a powerful engine in a light-weight car for mainstream production. The Giulia weighed about 1,000 kilograms (2,205 lb). The car was equipped with a light alloy twin overhead camshaft four-cylinder engine, similar to that of the earlier Giulietta models range. Engine capacities offered were 1.3-litre (1290 cc) or 1.6-litre (1570 cc). Various configurations of carburetors and tuning produced power outputs from about 80 to about 110 bhp (55 to 75 kW). Almost all Giulias made had a 5-speed manual transmission.
Giulias were noted for their lively performance among sedans of that era, especially considering the modest engine size. The popular Super version with the twin carburettor 1.6 litre engine had a top speed of 170 km/h (106 mph). 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) took about 12 seconds. This performance was better than many sports cars of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
In 1972 a rationalisation of the Giulia range saw the Super 1300 (Tipo 115.09) and the Super (Tipo 105.26) re-released as the Super 1.3 and Super 1.6. The two models featured the same equipment, interior and exterior trim, differing only in engine size (1290 cc and 1570 cc) and final drive ratio. A small Alfa Romeo badge on the C-pillar is a distinguishing feature, as are hubcaps with exposed wheel nuts.
This superb Giulia has had three previous owners before entering our collection in 1998.
It has undergone a full restoration in 2006 using many new original parts. Since then it has clocked only 1,500 km and has since been kept in our specialised garage with optimal storing conditions.
The body has never had a crash (minor or major) and is completely free of rust, as it has been kept all these years in a Mediterranean country.
