With a total production run of 1,000 units between 1965, when it was launched at the Geneva Salon, the Giulia GTC Alfa was an exclusive 2+2 convertible derivative of the Bertone Giulia Sprint GT coupe.
Visiting the new Arese plant when the Giulia GTC was introduced, the British magazine Autocar commented that "despite the high rates of manufacture, all Alfas are still largely hand-built, and every engine is stripped for examination when it has been run at the factory before being passed to the assembly lines.”
The convertible conversion was carried out by Carrozzeria Touring, with reinforcement applied to the floor pan to ensure that there was no loss of rigidity. Features of this disarmingly pretty convertible include a disappearing top and rear quarter windows winding fully into the body sides
