The 1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta was part of the 101 series of Giulietta models, produced from 1959 until additional changes were made in 1961. During this phase of production, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spiders wheelbase was lengthened and a few cosmetic changes were made across the line. Spider Convertibles would gain non-opening door vent windows, Sprint Coupes would see an egg-crate texture added to the center and side grilles, and both would gain larger taillights. However, the most important modification centered on the engine and four-speed transmission. The engine would move to a die-cast cylinder block and the four-speed transmission would be housed in a new case that had first been used for the five-speed Sprint Speciale a few years earlier. Interestingly, five-speed gearboxes seen today in 101 series Giulietta models are either transplants or period conversions.
If youre thinking about buying a 1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta, youve come to the right place to learn more about the cars history, nuances and appeal. It is important to note that the previous 750 series Giulietta models and the 101 series examples have quite a substantial number of parts that do not interchange. Also, the shift from 750 Giulietta models to 101 Giulietta models was gradual, with new items being added as stocks of old parts were deleted. As a result, some late model 750 series Giulietta examples and early 101 examples may not adhere strictly to official specifications. This is no surprise to those who have been Alfa Romeo fans or enthusiasts of Italian classics for some time. When doing your research on a particular example, always be sure to authenticate the car using the engine and chassis numbers, and be sure to ask the sellers for any documentation they may have regarding ownership history, maintenance and service records, or any other documents that can give you insight into the cars history.
