1967 Alfa Romeo Giulia Super
This 1967 Alfa Romeo Giulia Super presents a clean colour specification and has benefitted from recent restoration. Under the bonnet is a naturally-aspirated 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine which sends 72kW (97hp) to the rear wheels. This car features a five-speed manual transmission. The car’s odometer currently shows 4,347km.
Through the late 1960s Alfa Romeo was arguably one of the first car makers to introduce a large engine to a small sedan – effectively creating the sports sedan. This car was called the Giulia Super and it featured a twin-cam, rev happy four-cylinder engine and brilliant handling to match. Even with a modest engine size by today’s standards, the Giulia Super punches above its weight grade and regularly outpaced more powerful rivals in period, such as V8 Fords and V12 Jaguar saloons. Part of the reason for the Giulia Super’s excellent dynamics is Alfa’s involvement in TI Super racing where it drew inspiration. This invariably transformed what was a humble everyday sedan into a torquey and powerful sports sedan which can still be enjoyed today.
Painted in a cream white and upholstered with black vinyl inside the cabin, this Giulia Super’s colour combination shouts quintessential 60s-style. There are elements of period-specific chrome detailing on the exterior, while the interior shows woodgrain trim highlights. The owner notes no aftermarket modifications. However, the car does ride on a set of 14-inch Momo wheels which are wrapped in Velocity tyres.
This vehicle was built new in Milan, Italy in 1967 and was delivered new to South Africa. While its absolute number of owners is not known, there are several documents detailing its history in South Africa. The current owner came to purchase the vehicle in December 2021 and imported it to Australia. The car has been serviced through a variety of Alfa dealerships and specialists, and the most recent maintenance was completed in July 2022. This service involved a new starter motor. A major restoration took place five years ago according to supporting documentation. The owner notes no known issues with the car and asserts it is in excellent condition.
Bodywork shows in great order for a vehicle of its vintage. No marks of denting or scratches are seen anywhere on its panels, while the cream paintwork shows in great condition without fade. The chromework surrounding windows and pillars is beginning to show patina with age which adds to the car’s classic character. Chrome of the bumpers and grilles is polished to a shine. This car’s side mirrors are missing and need replacement. All four Momo wheels are in good condition.
The cabin is in great shape throughout. Black vinyl upholstery holds in good original shape without sag, while the fabric itself shows in good order. However, there are points of splitting in the vinyl on the rear bench. The driver’s door mechanism is stiff and requires adjustment, while the rear-left door handle needs replacing. The woodgrain dashboard and instrumentation displays in excellent condition.
A suite of supporting documentation will be included with this car.
