1k: Blue and Rust: 1967 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sedan

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 of parts with a limited description from the seller...but...and you know we like big buts around here...the price is fantastic.  Find this 1967 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sedan offered for $1,750 CAD ($1399 USD) in Owen Sound, ON, Canada. 

The Alfa Romeo Giulia sedan 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).  No word from the seller on which version we are looking at, but for the asking price it probably doesn't matter.  


This is probably the baby brother 1.3 liter inline 4, but it isn't a emissions choked or fuel economy designed engine - it is an all-aluminum 7000 rpm engine putting out 81 horsepower and mated to a 5 speed manual transmission.  What is the deal with the fancy green plug wires?


This Giulia (pronounced with a soft "g" - Joo- lee- A) is a complete pile of parts but you can still see the distinctive Italian shape under the dirt - no one will mistake this Alfa for a Japanese or American car from the 60s.
