You do not change a formula that works well: the success of the Alfa Romeo Alfasud prompted the carmaker to keep the same configuration for the model that succeeded it, but gave the model a more prestigious branding. The 33 is indeed a reference to the famous Tipo 33 prototype that made the brand famous in the heydays of endurance racing of the 1960s. The 33 therefore features a flat four-cylinder engine with transmission to the front wheels, but in a more angular bodywork , modernized and brought up-to-date with a hatchback tailgate that the Alfasud saloon lacked . The 33 was given a choice of engines, including a 1300cc base version developing 79bhp. The version 1.3 S, which we offer here, enjoyed a more powerful 1351cc featuring a double -barrel carburetor and developing 86bhp, aided with a neater finish complemented with the presence of a rear spoiler.
In a very healthy state, this car has been repainted several years ago in its original colour of "grigio chiaro metallizzato". The interiors are also in a beautiful state, with cloth seats in good condition and a radio-cassette player (an Autovox), and the odometer reading 86,746km. The car is equipped with its original jack. From the archives of Alfa Romeo 33 1.3 S this particular car left the factory on May 19, 1986 and was sold on June 19 the same year, in Desio, near Milan, Italy. Most 33s have been run into the ground with intensive use. It is rare to find one in such a state of preservation as this one, which, we are sure, will not escape the eyes of fans.

The cars in this collection are all offered without contôle technique (MOT). New legislation prevents us from obtaining an MOT for a vehicle that is not registered in France.
