The Giulia Super 1.6:
“The family car with the sportscar temperament!” – probably the best way to sum up the 105 series Giulia saloon, as did Alfa in their official brochure of the model. The 105 series Giulia needs little introduction, with a plethora of variants introduced from 1964 all the way to 1973, from trim level to engine capacity’s. The top-of-the-range model was always a 1570 cc powered variant, the fastest as well as the best-equipped variant on offer.
From 1969 Alfa launched the Super 1.6, the last and ultimate iteration of the classic 105-series saloon. Details to differentiate the exterior of the “halo” Giulia from the rest are aplenty; starting with quad-headlights, a chrome bonnet strip, chrome strip on the A-pillars and along the side-windows, a new grille design and many more. On the interior the Super 1.6’s gotten a lavishly equipped dashboard with big, round dials from Jaeger as well as two central gauges for oil pressure and water temperature.
For those who didn’t find a “ regular” Super 1.6 enough, there was an optional “Biscione” trim pack available. These cars have been built in smaller numbers and can easily be distinguished from the “Serpent” on the C-pillar. Small but notable differences are a redesigned steering wheel, different trunk design with a casted shape for the Alfa logo into the boot amongst other small details.
The Biscione’s are considered to being the ultimate trim level for a classic Giulia. The car on offer here, is one.
This Giulia Super 1.6:
Chassis no. AR1890692 was produced on the 3rd of November 1971 and delivered to its first owner in Amsterdam, the Netherlands on the 20th of April 1972. The Giulia was suited to its first and only registration number 68-79-TD, the registration number it is suited with today. Because the car has stayed its entire life in the Netherlands, it is easily verifiable that it has seen just 2 (yes, two!) owners from new. Original registration documents as well as a certificate of originality from Alfa Storico confirm the car was originally consigned in the rarely seen colours of Rosso A.R. (AR501) over a Nero interior – exactly the specification it is presented in today.
The odometer indicates a mileage of 54.500 km’s from new, strongly believed to being the car’s original mileage. This can be traced back with a plethora of MOT certificates, which accompany the vast history file of this motorcar. We acquired the car in late 2018 from its second custodian, before embarking on a sympathetic aesthetic recommissioning. All the works carried out during this restoration have been carefully documented, picturizing the extensive repair works that have been carried out to the body before paint-prep and topcoat. It is fair to say the body of the Giulia is extensively protected against future corrosion (much better than when new) and will therefore look as good as it does today for years to come!
Technically the car was in very original and sound condition throughout, meaning a thorough service and going-over was basically all it needed. It goes without saying this stunning Giulia drives as good as it looks.
We decided to fit the car with 15” GTA-style wheels with brand-new tyres (Bridgestone B250) complementing the amazing stance these Giulia saloons are known for. The 2 auxilary headlights have been replaced with TI-Super inspired meshes, to add to the spirited stance. The original 14”x 5J wheels together with the Carello auxiliary lights are present with the car, so retrofitting to 100% stock is always a possibility – should done wish to do so.
Bite-Size:
A standout Giulia with unprecedented provenance, back from a fresh aesthetic recommissioning that is priced to sell.
