Typically on St Patrick’s Day we enjoy featuring Irish built cars, but the 1960 Shamrock is difficult to find (given the 10 built production figures and 8 known to still exist) and DeLorean Snowcats aren’t just jumping out of trees, so I go to the next best thing which is an Italian car that uses […]
The Alfa Romeo Giulia we posted the other day got me thinking that I should post more of the real OG Giulia. I don’t have anything against late model cars — they smell good, and are mostly reliable…but there is something about a classic that tugs at the heart strings. Plus this classic Giulia will continue to appreciate while the new Giulia will continue to depreciate, and if you have a problem with a classic you can usually fix it yourself on the weekend, a multimeter, and a crescent wrench…the same can’t be said for a brand new Giulia. But could you drive this classic Giulia every day? Maybe? But it might be a better weekender and get a Fiat 500 Abarth for a daily driver. Win win. Find this 1964 Alfa Romeo Giulia TI offered for $18,500 in SF Bay Area, CA via craigslist.
It is St Patrick’s Day, so I thought I’d see if we could get one of the late model Alfa Romeo Giulia Quattroformaggio…wait…that’s not right…Quadrifoglio models offered for something in the DT price range — after all, they have 4-doors and are made in Italy, so they should depreciate like a used COVID nose swab. But no such luck, the QuattroFormuluotto…errr…4-leaf-clover versions are still in the $40k range because they were expensive when new and have a 500 horsepower twin-turbo V6. The base model Giulia with the 280 horsepower turbo-4 on the other hand…that’s doable on a budget comparable to a new Honda Accord. Find this 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia bidding for $12,749 reserve-not-met with $25,500 buy-it-now located in Orlando, FL.
Tipper Erik202 sent in a tip the other day and included the suggestion that DT does an “Italian” week special…and I thought to myself, this is a great idea, but I need to make sure that my team of editors agreed to this suggestion. So, I turned to the teddy bear on my left and […]
It’s funny how we come up with names over time to compartmentalize things. Back when this Giulia Spider was for sale, there was the Giulia Spider and Giulia Spider Veloce. Now (at least amongst Alfisi) you have the Veloce , Normale and Abnormale tags for the 101 series Giulias. Find this 1963 Alfa Romeo Giulia […]
Another basket-case Alfa Romeo so soon? You bet. This one comes from the Alfa Romeo Giulia sedan family, which was manufactured from 1962-1972, available with a 1.3 or 1.6 liter gasoline engine and the desirable TI trim (TI stands for Turismo Internazionale – a reference to Alfa’s racing pedigree). Today’s feature is a total pile […]
The Alfa Romeo Giulia Super 1300 (Tipo 115.09) was a version of the Giulia sedan sold from 1973 to 1978. The Giulia was a competitor to the BMW New Class and Datsun 510 but outclassed both of those cars with an Italian take on family motoring. Find this 1973 Alfa Romeo Giulia Super 1300 currently […]
The Alfa Romeo Giulia 1300 super should not be confused with the larger 1750 Berlina. Although they shared many components and styling, the 1750 Berlina rides on a longer wheelbase and isn’t as fun in the curves. The Giulia 1300 on the other hand was the spiritual predecessor to fun sport sedans like the BMW […]
