Alfa Romeo Giulia is the name of three not directly related models by the Italian car manufacturer Alfa Romeo. The first is a line of sporty four-door compact executive cars (Type 105) produced from 1962 to 1978, the second is an updated, mainly up-engined Spider, Sprint and Sprint Speciale Giuliettas, and the third Giulia is a compact executive car (type 952) unveiled in 2015.  It is the final version of the Type 105 we present to you today.


Alfa Romeo was one of the first mainstream manufacturers to put a powerful engine in a light-weight 1 tonne (2,205 lb) four-door car for mass production The Type 105 Giulia was equipped with a light alloy twin overhead camshaft four-cylinder engine similar to that of the earlier Giulietta (750/101) range, available in 1.3-litre (1,290 cc) and 1.6-litre (1,570 cc) versions. Various configurations of carburettors and tuning produced power outputs from about 80 to about 110 bhp (55 to 75 kW), coupled in most cases to 5-speed manual transmission.


This particular Type 105 was produced for the Italiano Polizia and features twin Solex Carburettors, rather than the domestic Type 105 which was fitted with Weber equipment.  This specific set-up provides better performance, MPG and easier tuning.


Giulia saloons were noted for lively handling and impressive acceleration among other small competitors of their era, especially considering modest engine sizes offered. The popular Super version with the twin carburettor 1.6 litre engine had a top speed of 170 km/h (106 mph) and accelerated from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in about 12 seconds, better than many sports cars of the late 1960s and early 1970s. When leaving the factory all variations of the Giulia originally fitted either Pirelli Cinturato 165HR14 tyres (CA67) or Pirelli Cinturato 155HR15 tyres (CA67).

 

The styling of the boxy four-door notchback saloon was typical of Italian styling at the time, but take care to see some of the less obvious design features such as the integrated rear roof spoiler and curved rear screen and you quickly come to appreciate it. The engine bay, cabin and boot were all square shaped, buffered somewhat by details on the grill, roofline, bonnet and boot. Use of a wind tunnel during development led to a very aerodynamic shape that produced a drag coefficient of Cd=0.34, particularly low for a saloon of the era.


The Giulia Spider was succeeded by the Alfa Romeo Spider (105/115) in 1966 and in 1974 Alfa introduced our Giulia Nuova Super, along with the 1600cc version. This and featured a new black plastic front grille and a flat boot  lid without the characteristic centre spine. Otherwise the cars differed little from their Giulia Super predecessors and bore the same Tipo numbers with an S suffix. Production ceased in 1977, making these cars suitably rare.  Rarer still are the numbers of Italiano Polizia versions, with their distinctive Le Mans Blue exterior and Twin Solex Carburettor configurations, with only 917 ever produced - very few remain.

In 2010, we are informed that a professional restoration of the car took place: The body, mechanics inc suspension, complete Brembo braking system, new brake pump and copper pipes, electrical system and new exhaust.  The tyres were also replaced.

The previous owner stated that the car had been in storage for 12 years prior to restoration and that before him there had been two previous owners.


We became part of the history of this Alfa in September 2017, having purchased the car through an online auction site.  It was located in Verona, Italy and a special trip was arranged to personally inspect and transport the car using our internal services.


The car is currently registered on NOVA (Notification of Vehicle Arrival) and is pre-UK import. 


The car was fitted with an LPG conversion, which we have had removed by a specialist.  The twin Solex Carbs have been serviced and tuned by John Lamb Tuning.  The interior upholstery has been completely re-stitched, a new gear gaiter to replace a torn one and new bespoke carpets have been fitted.


We still have a few maintenance issues to address, a little attention to paintwork – although the cars bodywork and structure is very sound.  We have also purchased a brand new and boxed 1970’s stereo to replace the one previous fitted which had been broken.

This car comes with an authenticated certificate of origin from the Alfa Romeo Archives.
