The Giulia was produced in 12 different versions over its 15 years of production. The final version was released in 1974 as the Nuova Super (1300 and 1600). This featured a new black plastic front grille and a flat boot (trunk) lid. Otherwise the cars differed little from their Giulia Super predecessors and bore the same Tipo numbers with an S suffix. Production ceased in 1977.
This superb late example of the Giulia Super Nuova rolled off the production line in February 1977, destined for Greece where it had two owners for much of its life. The warm Grecian climate has been kind to the Alfa; the body and underside are original, and the Giulia shows no signs of accident damage.
Over the past three years the Giulia has enjoyed much restoration work, notably the body has seen a complete glass-out repaint in Rossa Corsa (supported by photographic evidence). The interior has been treated to retrimmed seats and door cards in the correct black leatherette, a new roof lining has been fitted, and the dashboard recovered. The vendor has spent c. £10,000 to bring the Giulia to the wonderful standard presented today.
The original 1300cc motor has been replaced with a rebuilt 1779cc motor, mated to rebuilt carburettors. The more powerful motor breathes through a new exhaust system, steering is improved with a ZF steering rack, and as a finishing touch GTA-style 15” wheels wearing fresh rubber have been added.
The result of all this careful restoration and upgrade work is an Alfa which not only presents very well, but drives just as well as it looks. Offered with a current UK MoT certificate, this is a wonderful proposition for the enthusiastic driver.
