Alfa Romeo Giulia
The Alfa Romeo Giulia is a sports saloon car built by Alfa Romeo, the renowned Italian car brand. The production of the Giulia 1300 is in between 1962 and 1978. As the car weights only approximately 1,000 kg (2,205 lbs), Alfa Romeo became one of the first few car makers that place a powerful engine in a light-weight car.
Under the hood, the Giulia is given a light alloy twin overhead camshaft four-cylinder engine. Engine capacities options were 1.3-litre (1,290 cc) or 1.6-litre (1,570 cc). The white color Alfa Romeo Giulia in the photos here is the Giulia 1300 Ti. It features a 1.3-litre engine which produces 81 hp at 6000 rpm and 104 Nm of torque. A 4-speed manual transmission and a twin carburetor fuel system are standard for the car.
As you can see from the photos, the Alfa Romeo Giulia 1300 Ti features a three-spoke Bakelite steering wheel with plastic horn push covering the centre and spokes. In the front of the steering wheel, there are two large gauges which are speedo and tacho. In between them, there is a small fuel gauge. The dashboard is made of solid wood. This is definitely a nice classic car.
Almost 90% of the car is in its original condition include the alloy wheels, wheel caps, bumpers, seat belts, decals, dashboard, both front and back seats.
The top speed of the Alfa Romeo Giulia 1300 ti is rated at 160 km/h (99 mph). This is considered a very fast speed for a car that built in the 1960s. The Alfa Romeo Giulia Super, Giulia Super 1.6 and Giulia Nuova Super 1600 have a top speed of 175 km/h (109 mph). They are the most powerful Giulia ever built. The Super version is capable to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 12 seconds. How many cars on the road today have this capability?
Take a look at the grill, rooflines and some other details on the bonnet, you will notice that the car is very aerodynamic although it might look “square” to many people.
If you ever had a chance to own this beauty, please enjoy driving it as much as you can. If you meet one Giulia running on the road by chance, please request the owner to give you a free ride and try to feel the car. It has the smell which many modern cars don’t.
