Model Range

Giulia Ti

The Giulia Ti was introduced to the press and authorities on the 27th June 1962. It was the first of the 105 series cars.
The body was an entirely new line. Alfa stated that is was designed by the wind. Despite its boxy appearance, due to its wraparound windscreen, small frontal area, body fluting, small spoiler moulded into the rear roofline, and Kamm tail it had a drag coefficient of 0.34 the same as a contemporary Porsche 911.

The engine for the 1962 TI was developed from the Giulietta 1300 engine and had a displacement of 1570cc. It was completely alloy with cast iron liners, twin overhead cams and hemispherical combustion chambers. Aspirated with a single two-barrel downdraft Solex carburetor. It produced 92HP @ 6200rpm.

The T.I. had a column shift mated to the 5 speed transmission and drum brakes. Later Ti’s had floor mounted gear levers.

Ti Super

The Giulia Ti Super was launched in April 1963. It wore the quadrifoglio on the sides and rear. It had 15 alloy wheels, plexiglass rear window, floor mounted gear selector, sports steering wheel, bucket seats and only weighed 910 kg.

The engine had forged pistons with a compression ratio of 9.7:1 and dual sidedraft webers. It produced 112HP @ 6200rom.

Only 501 were produced and are the most desirable of the Giulia sedans.

Giulia Super
The Giulia Super replaced the Ti in 1965. The standard spec car had dual 40DCOE carburetors, sodium cooled exhaust valves, different intake manifold and produced 98HP @5500rpm. It had a floor mounted 5 speed gear change, the instrument panel has round dials including a big tacho and speedo, Fully reclining bucket seats were added, gold alfa badge on c pillars, and a two piece front heart and slatted grill.

In 1967 Frankfurt Motor show new upgrades were introduced including a doorlock on the passenger side, a second wiper speed, ATE brakes instead of Dunlop.

In 1969 there were more improvements including a 5 bar front grill, single piece heart, green enamel serpent badge on c pillars, a hydraulic clutch, air filter setup change (no longer crossover type), additional instrumentation hanging below dash above transmission tunnel, an alternator, air outlet in the dashboard, new hollow steering wheel, wrap-around anatomic design seats with stepless adjustement of the front seat backs, separated rear seats, fully lined passenger compartment, new external handles, new door panels, deadened gearboxmounting, new flexible mountings for rear trailing arms, rear stabilizer bar, braking modulator, and wheels/tyres changed from 155 SR15 on 5×15 wheels to 165 SR14 on 5-1/2×14 wheels

In 1971 the Giulia Super had more changes including a double braking circuit, air filter with ramming intake, hand brake control lever on the tunnel, top-hinged brake and clutch pedals, head lamp setting adjustment, brake fluid and hand brake warning lights, releasable rear-view mirror

Giulia Nuova Super

The Giulia Nuova Super replaced the Giulia Super in 1974. The front and rear bodywork was smoothed out, The similarities to the 2000 Berlina are unmistakable, but really the stylists just dumbed down all the things that made the Giulia Super unique. The seats were changed and headrests added. Interior ventilation was improved by adding two additional air outlets on a centre console. Although horsepower rating remained the same, gas pedal reactions and acceleration were less brisk due to new emission-controlled Weber carburetters and milder cam timing. The wheels were narrower at 165SR14 on 5″x14″ rims. Beside the 1600cc models, various 1300cc models of the Giulia also existed. Quite a large number of these were manufactured and sold, probably due to the high gasoline prices of the 1970’s and the Italian government taxes based on engine displacement.
