While Ferrari, Maserati, and Lamborghini nuke it out in the Italian sports car scene, Alfa Romeo caters to the masses who want Italian design, emotion and a healthy dose of quirkiness. Owning an Alfa Romeo has become a rite of passage, and there is an entire global community dedicated towards the upkeep and enjoyment of these Italian automobiles. In the USA, the brand has had a somewhat love-hate relationship, rising, and falling through the times. However, that hasn’t stopped dedicated enthusiasts from bringing in cars from overseas, as the seller of this 1975 Alfa Romeo Giulia Nuova Super 1300 did when he purchased the car in Italy from its original owner and shipped it over to the USA. It’s got 20,200 miles on the clock, is said to be completely original and includes the original books and Alfa Romeo documents in the sale too, making it ideal for any American Alfisti on the hunt.
The Giulia nameplate was introduced in 1962, and ran until 1978 in a variety of iterations. Penned by Giuseppe Scarnati, it created the definitive Sixties and Seventies mainstream Alfa Romeo look. This 1975 Alfa Romeo Giulia Nuova Super 1300 is a four-door sedan variant that wears a Prugna paint job and rolls on a set of classic 14-inch steel wheels with new 185/70 Michelin tires. It’s got chrome bumpers, the distinctive quad headlamps at the front, and the exhaust protrudes out at a rakish angle from the rear. The interior is in black and offers seating for the driver plus four passengers. Like the exterior, it looks fantastic in photos and has clearly been well looked after. Two main dials for speed and engine RPM flank a Jaeger analog clock and face the driver who will be gripping a lovely thin wood-rimmed three-spoke steering wheel. Note that the speedometer reads in km/h, not mph. The fuel gauge lives in a little quadrant at the bottom of the speedometer, and the center console hosts the oil and water temperature gauges, together with two air vents. A straight gear shifter protrudes almost from the dashboard, and this car has an aftermarket Sony cassette radio installed.
Although packing modestly-sized engines, the Giulia was renowned for being a lively handler that offered impressive acceleration due to light weight. Driving an Alfa Romeo is a holistic experience that non-Alfa people never quite get. This 1975 Alfa Romeo Giulia Nuova Super 1300 packs its rebuilt original 1.3L in-line four cylinder motor with twin carburetors that puts out 88hp and 103lb-ft, but it’s sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission and sings a characterful song as you wind it through the rev range. Braking is via discs at the front and rear.
