The initial 750 Series Giulietta chassis featured independent front suspension with a coil-sprung live rear axle and drum brakes all round. The engine, like the suspension, owed much to Alfa’s racing experience, hence the ability of the twin-cam four cylinder to produce 65bhp from just 1,290cc.
Major changes appeared in 1959 with the 101 Series. Though outwardly similar, the 1,290cc engine was strengthened while the bodies received minor detail alterations. The final change came in 1962 when the renamed Giulia models appeared with five-speed gearboxes and a 92bhp, 1,570cc version of the twin-cam engine.
This is a very rare original right hand drive example, fitted from new with disc brakes and supplied to the English market on 26th September 1963, it was then supplied to the first owner on 15th April 1964.
The car has subsequently had just 5 owners from new and remained in generally good usable condition pr
