Launched in 1954, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta is an important model for the Alfa Romeo company, as it was the companys first release after World War II that resembled the racing-inspired autos that Alfa would become known for. Produced through 1965, the Giulietta was offered in three body styles first the Berlina Sedan, followed by the Sprint Coupe and Spider Convertible and in several different tunes, such as the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Veloce, Giulietta Sprint Veloce, Giulietta TI Sprint Speciale and Sprint Zagato. The 1962 Alfa Romeo Giulietta is an excellent example of Italian engineering and performance during this era. However, sales would slow for the Giulietta during 1962, as it gained a 1,570cc Giulia running mate during this year. Giulietta production would continue through 1965 before officially being replaced by the Giulia. Though the Alfa Romeo 1900 had been the first Alfa Romeo to reach mass-market status, it was the Giulietta that really established the brand in the minds of many enthusiasts, particularly those in America. This love affair with the classic Alfa Romeo Giulietta continues today.
The 1962 Alfa Romeo Giulietta used an Alfa Romeo twin-cam straight-four 1,290cc engine that boasted a light alloy cylinder block and an alloy cylinder head with twin overhead camshafts. While the original Giulietta models offered 62hp in the Berlina and 80hp in the Sprint and Spider models, this would be increased to 100hp in later examples of the Sprint Speciale and Sprint Zagato.
