The Giulia Super 1.6:
From 1969 Alfa launched a new top model for its Giulia line-up; the Super 1.6, the ultimate iteration of the classic 105-series saloon (the 1750 and 2000 were considerably less attractive from a design point). Details to differentiate the exterior of the Super 1.6 from the rest of the model range are aplenty; 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" trim came with a lavishly equipped dashboard with big, round dials from Jaeger as well as two central gauges for oil pressure and water temperature.
The Giulia 105 amongst others put Alfa on the map as the de facto 4-door sports saloon thanks to its exceptional handling characteristics. The legendary twin-cam was now enlarged to 1570 cc providing around 110 hp but with considerably more torque than the 1290 cc baseline engine. This makes these 1.6’s a lot more pokey and useable in modern day traffic.
Rust always played havoc to the 105’s, making genuinely great examples in pristine condition a rare sight. Mint examples, like the one we’re pleased to offer here, are near impossible to find.
This Giulia Super 1.6:
Chassis no. AR1890678 was first registered on the 4th of April 1972, believed in the stunning colour combo of Blu Olandese 343 over a Tan leatherette upholstery – the specification it is suited with today. Today the car is currently registered in the Netherlands under reg number 88-22-VH.
This motorcar has been the subject of an elaborate rotissery, nut and bolt restoration in the period of 2019 to 2020 by marque experts in the Netherlands. Images and invoices of restoration works indicate the full body has been brought back to bare metal, leaving no stone unturned and naturally removing all rust and corrosive area’s. The engine (engine no. AR00526A*S366N) and entire drivetrain have been overhauled in this process as well, with the engine having just covered its running in period of 1000 km’s post restoration.
The engine is suited with two freshly rebuilt Solex carbs with 32mm venturi’s. A host of invoices in the history file indicate the fastidiousness of the recommissioning works - at a glance; new pistons, connecting rod bearings, polished crankshaft, new main bearing set, freshly rebuilt cylinder head, new in-and exhaust valves and guides, new waterpump, new startermotor, rear axle overhaul, the list goes on and on. More than €12.000,- are on invoice for parts alone. All parts have been supplied by marque expert Goos Van Pelt and Balocco Classics. It goes without saying the gearbox (incl. new clutch pack), rear axle and full suspension have been totally revived in the process as well – no stone was left unturned.
In the process some considerable upgrades have been installed too under which the popular “fast road kit” by Alfaholics with Koni Shocks (Yellow at the front, Red at the rear) and a fresh set of 15” GTA-style veloce wheels. These upgrades give a slightly lower ride height – providing the Giulia with an amazing stance! Besides do these upgrades drastically improve the ride and handling characteristics making for a very balanced package. The odometer indicates a mileage of 21.870 km’s, strongly believed to totalling 121k km’s from new.
The interior, upholstery, dashboard and headlining are in first class condition too with little signs of wear. Naturally, all electrics are fully functioning without exception.
Before the car will be handed over to a new custodian the engine will get a new service as it has just passed its running in period, making it completely ready for summer adventures! Impromptu weekend trips, touring holidays or even a classic Rally – this Giulia will do it all.
Bite-Size:
Probably one of the best Giulia 105’s available anywhere today. A car that needs nothing and is ready to go by all means. Very few cars really tick as many boxes as this example – so if you’re in the market for one of these the wait is over.
