Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider 1600 (Tipo 101.23) 1965

Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider 1600 belongs to the most beautiful post-war models of the brand. Spider's roots can be traced to the very successful Giulietta Spider (based on Giulietta type 101) with a 1.3-litre engine and design from the Pininfarina studio, where the car was also manufactured. Because it was so popular, the successor in the form of Giulia Spider remained virtually unchanged. In addition to the Spider, this series also includes the Sprint coupe and also the Sprint Speciale version. The main difference of „new model“ was the installation of a more powerful 1.6-litre engine instead of the older 1.3-litre engine. And bigger engine is reason, why there is a bonnet air scoop, necessary to clear place for taller engine block. You can easily recognize new model because of this scoop. New engine came in different specifications with power output from 91 hp (basic version) to 127 hp (Veloce). Larger engine was noticeably smoother and less fussy. A five-speed gearbox was standard on Giulia Spider, allowing to drive comfortably until top speed of 180 km/h (109 mph). The fastest production version of Giulias was Spider Veloce with engine basically from Sprint Speciale.

Production/market

The Giulia Spider was produced by Alfa Romeo/Pininfarina from 1954 to 1965. I total, there was 17 096 vehicles, but only 2796 was built in Veloce specification. The Giulia Spider is certainly on of the most attractive Alfa Romeos of its day and remain highly regarded now, especially in its ultimate Veloce spec. Steadily rising value, with strong demand from collectors.

Reliability

Giulia is based on simple, but very agile chassis and suspension system with double triangular front arms and live axle at the rear, with coil springs and dampers in all four corners. At those days, this was fantastic setup, enabling pure driving feelings and fast cornering with direct and sharp steering. Engine, as the rest of the car, is very reliable.

Particular vehicle

This particular vehicle was finished as export model for US market, meaning that it has guages in mph instead of kph. It had only three owners during its life, the second one made complete renovation (documented) during 2008 to 2011. Apart from renovation of bodywork and suspension system, the engine was rebuilt to Veloce specification, which is also something unique. Bodywork was finished in period correct colour combination of Alfa Rosso and black leather interior.

Engine number AR00112 corresponds to the specification Normale and we assume, that the engine is original – althouth nowadays upgraded. Even double Weber carburattors were rebuild in 2010 and adjusted in 2020. During this service, change of liquids and servis of valves was made. Potent engine is working fine.

Third (actual) owner enjoyed the vehicle from 2017, when it was imported to Czech republic. It has US registration. The car runs well, has very nice shape, everything is working and is ready to bring joy to a new owner. The reason for selling Alfa is concentration to older, interwar vehicles.
