15k: Seller Submission: 1973 Alfa Romeo Giulia 1300 Super

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 1600/2000/2002 and Datsun 510 - and combined a lightweight chassis with an eager engine.  Find this 1973 Alfa Romeo Giulia 1300 Super offered for $16,000 in Pensacola, FL via craigslist.  Seller submission from Josh T.


In 1967 the 1750 Berlina was added as a higher end option to the Giulia platform, but in North America, the 1750 Berlina replaced the Giulia and the only way you will get a 1973 Giulia 1300 is to import one.  This particular car grew up in Italy before stopping for a few years in the UK and has now been imported to the USA.


Under the hood is the all-alloy and eager to rev 1.3 liter inline-4, rated at 103 horsepower and 100 ft-lbs of torque - very healthy for the displacement.  That was however the point of a Giulia back in the day, it was a good looking family sedan with a high power engine - the closest thing you could get to a 4-door Italian pony car.

  1. You can find these in Europe and import them for way cheaper than this asking price...I'm talking like $4500 for a car in similar condition plus $5K in importation costs. Nice little Guilia, but a CP price for sure.

    1. Are you sure you're not confusing that with Euros? Even in Italy prices are typically at least 5,000 Euros and can go above 10,000 for pristine cars. For sure there's no listing 1300 Super on Trovit right now for less than 6,000 Euros.

  2. It's fraternal twin brother is over on mint2me.com: Red versus green, black interior versus tan, New Jersey versus Florida. Priced about the same.

  3. @Adam: That may have been true but it looks like prices in Europe are going up and then there's the logistics of overseas inspection and importing.

    The 1300 is loads of fun (I have a Spider Jr.) but lacks torque and get's poor MPG (you're always rev'ing it) but can be easily replaced with a 2 Liter if you need more power.
