Rare early TI model in RHD specification

Designed by Giuseppe Scarnati, the 105-series Alfa Romeo Giulia was way ahead of its time, with features many other manufacturers only managed to match many years later. The TI (Turismo Internationale) was the firm’s flagship high-performance saloon of the period. Despite their boxy, unitary construction body, the Giulia was a paragons of aerodynamic efficiency, with a distinctly sporting nature. The basis was a punchy 91bhp 1600cc twin-cam engine, mated to a five-speed gearbox, (from late 1963) front and rear Dunlop disc brakes, and a sweet handling rear-wheel-drive chassis. Into the 1970s the model range was renamed Nuova Super, running through to 1977.

This well presented early Turismo Internazionale (featuring a bench seat with floor-mounted gear change) was previously registered to an Alfa-Romeo collector in South Africa, and formerly maintained by well regarded marque specialists Glenwood Motors of Pretoria. Over the years the Giulia gained upgrades (such as disc brakes) and cosmetic improvements where required. In 2020 the Giulia was imported into the UK; upon arrival the car was inspected, and fitted with a new exhaust system and track rod ends. In current ownership the car has been serviced and tuned but has been seldom driven, and dry stored when not in use.

The vehicle’s coachwork is straight and dent-free, with a clean engine bay and just the odd minor paint blemish here and there. The underside of the car appears to be in good condition, with solid jacking points, A-pillars and sills. The chromework is complete with only minor signs of pitting here and there, the glass and door rubbers also appear to be in good order. The interior presents nicely, with recently refurbished front seats, good original rear seats, and tidy door cards. The carpets are in excellent condition, and are likely to be a recent fitting. The headline shows minor signs of age but is in good condition with no damage.

An early and tidily presented original RHD Giulia TI is a rare prospect, this classic Alfa not only presents very well but we sure will provide a spirited driving experience. Offered with a UK V5C document, previous UK MoT certificate, copy of South African title and shipping papers, and showing  just over 41,000 miles recorded, this is a wonderful proposition for the enthusiastic driver.
