Lot 117: Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider
The initial 750 Series Giulietta chassis featured independent front suspension with a coil-sprung live rear axle and drum brakes all round. The engine, like the suspension, owed much to Alfa's racing experience, hence the ability of the twin-cam four cylinder to produce 65bhp from just 1,290cc.
Major changes appeared in 1959 with the 101 Series. Though outwardly similar, the 1,290cc engine was strengthened while the bodies received minor detail alterations. The final change came in 1962 when the renamed Giulia models appeared with five-speed gearboxes and a 92bhp, 1,570cc version of the twin-cam engine.
This is a very rare original right hand drive example and was supplied new in 1964. BGU 25B was acquired by a titled owner in 1987 and was subject to a rebuild in 1990/1991 and remained in their ownership until 2010.
Since the current vendor has owned the car it has been subject to a repaint and light recommissioning work. Rarely do right hand drive Giulia's come to market, BGU 25B offers an opportunity not to be missed.
