ThThis 1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta TI comes to us from Italy after having been in long term storage for 30+ years (hence the low original mileage). Straight, rust free and in remarkable condition when we acquired it, it has now undergone a very through restoration at the hands of our Italian artisans and is ready for show and go. All aspects of the chassis, body and interior have been addressed and this Giulietta drives like new. The underbody is remarkably clean, all mechanical systems are refurbished and the interior is nicely redone. The striking rich blue paintwork and excellent chrome adds a unique and distinctive look. It’s a beauty.

Introduced at the Turin Motor Show in 1955, the Giulietta Berlina was an instant hit. Compact and nimble it offered a sporty feeling, balanced handling and a relatively roomy interior in a compact package.
A revised version of the Giulietta Berlina debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1959, and this second generation style as featured on our 1960 car is considered to be the best looking Giulietta body. Mechanical changes were limited to shifting the fuel pump from the cylinder head to a lower position below the distributor, and moving the previously exposed fuel filler cap from the tail to the right rear wing, under a flap. The bodywork showed a revised front end, with more rounded wings, recessed head lights, and new grilles with chrome frames and two horizontal bars. The rear also showed changes, with new larger tail lights on vestigial fins, which replaced the earlier rounded rear wings.
The interior was much more organized and upholstered in new cloth material; the redesigned dashboard included a strip speedometer flanked by two round bezels, that on the T.I. housed a tachometer and oil and water temperature gauges. The T.I. also received a front side repeater mounted in a small spear.
The Alfa Romeo Giulietta features unibody construction and a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout. Front suspension was by control arms, with coaxial coil springs and hydraulic dampers. At the rear there was a solid axle on coil springs and hydraulic dampers. The axle was located by a longitudinal link on each side, and by a wishbone-shaped arm linking the top of the aluminium differential housing to the chassis. Overall length is a tidy 162.8” on a wheelbase of 93.7”. Curb weight is around 2000 lbs.
The TI model offered added performance via higher rated version of Alfa’s classic 1.3 liter DOHC four cylinder motor with a robust 4-speed manual transmission. Specs are 74 HP @ 6100 rpm / 77 ft-lb @ 3300 rpm SAE net. Top speed was rated at 96 mph in the TI. .
