Aussie-delivered Giulia in excellent restored condition

While most collectors may flock to the earlier GTVs; the humble slab-sided ‘Type 105’ Giulia sedan offer a far more affordable buy-in to the market, and deliver much of the same sporting Italian flair with its perky twin-cam engine and quaint charming design.

The Giulia name of this era actually birthed various models, from the best-selling Type 105 sedan to drop-dead gorgeous convertibles and coupes.

The Type 105 Giulia sedan was produced from 1962 to 1978; and over its life was fitted with various engines – gradually swelling in displacement over time.

The sporty Giulia Super was introduced in 1965, and took much of Alfa Romeo’s Racing TI Super components and put them into a road car.

Various updates, additions and years later – the Giulia Super range was simplified in 1972, with just two options, the Super 1.3 and Super 1.6: identical in specification and packaging, and differing only between the 1290cc and 1570cc engine.

This 1974 Alfa Romeo Giulia looks to be a Super 1.6, fitted with the larger 1570cc twin-cam engine, glorious five-speed manual, and dipped in its original colour over a brown vinyl interior.

It’s a genuine Aussie-delivered car and presents in exceedingly original condition.

The body and chassis have recently been treated to a restoration, with complete rust removal, new floors and new paint.

Under its skin, there are even more new components including ball joints, shocks and more.

Overall, it looks like a fantastically-presented vehicle. Despite their somewhat dorky three-box proportions, these things had more than their fair share of sporting merit. They’re genuinely great fun to drive: and were lauded for their keen handling and acceleration at the time. Fun fact: the inaugural Sandown Six Hour in 1964 was won by a Giulia.

If you’re after a genuine Italian classic that won’t break the bank – this handsome Giulia Super might fit the bill nicely.

The car is based in Victoria, and is listed for $38,000.
