Let us go back in the 1970s and meet the Alfa Romeo Giulia Super 1300


A few decades ago, Alfa Romeo specialists have developed a rear-wheel drive model which was a real privilege to look at, touch and drive. Some of might be a bit too young to know what this means because we are talking about a 1960s model, the Alfa Romeo Giulia. Under the hood it used to have an alloy DOHC 4-cylinder petrol engine in 1.3- and 1.6-liter displacements. The output was ranging between 74 and 100 horsepower. All power was being transferred to the wheels through a four or a five speed manual transmission. Back then the replacement of a model only after three years since the launch was really non-existent. Carmaker did not use to release a replacement so fast. When it came to the Giulia, the specialists have offered different types of models like Ti, Ti Super, 1300, Super, 1300 Ti, 1600 S and Super 1300. The engineers moved on to the second series model which was launched in 1972. These models were offered with the Super 1.3 and Super 1.6. The only difference between them was the size of the engine and the final drive ratio. A few years later, Alfa Romeo carmaker offered an improvement to the Nuova Super, for example, which received its first diesel engine option which was not very well received. Robbert Alblas owns an Alfa Romeo Giulia Super 1300 and according to him, it is in very good shape. The best thing about it is that it is all original. The audio systems available at the time, but also the wood-trimmed three-spoke wheel, are both in very good conditions. Well, these days it is a really rare appearance as most were found by rust and terminated or were sent to the crusher.
