History of a genuine Giulia Ti Super
At the moment, a real Giulia TI Super is being restored in Holland. You may have heard from it as the technical details of this car are discussed in the 'Limited Production 1960 - 1977' chapter of this forum (look in 'help me out on a real TI Super').
Rik (Berlinista) and I (Zagato_Olaf) sat down last week to have a look at this TI Super. We talked about the restoration and what Rik and the team found when stripping the car and rebuilding it. We will publish some of that knowledge in the techical section in order to track it's history.
The same goes for some names of previous owners which I will be publishing in due time in this chapter.
In the mean time Rik researched the car and found a register of TI Supers. I had a talk with the present owner to find out more about the history of this specific car. At present a profile is being built that contains all known information of this specific TI Super. We hope that the alfabb members can help us. What do we know on the historical side?
Chassis- and enginenumbers:
The first piece of information on the TI Super (model 105.16) contains information on the chassis- and enginenumbers. My question is; is there a member who can comment on the chassisnumbers and can either confirm or deny that the chassis- and enginenumbers were matching?
Maurizio Tabucchi in his book 'Guida all'identificazione Alfa Romeo' published in 2000 by Giordio Nada Editore and Maurizio Tabucchi & Stefano d' Amico in the book 'Alfa Romeo, Le vetture di produzione' published in 2007 by Giorgio Nada Ediore, give us the following information:
In 1963 Alfa Romeo built 595001, 595003 up to 595181. Also built in 1963 were 595183, 186, 190, 194, 196, 201, 202, 203, 205, 210, 212, 219 and 236.
Exceptions to this range were 055 (not issued) and 595169 (destroyed). Chassisnumbers 595019, 065, 127, 138, 139, 150, 151, 156, 167, 175, 178 were built in 1964.
In 1964 Alfa Romeo built 595182 up to 595509. Incuded were 595019, 065, 127, 138, 139, 150, 151, 156, 167, 175 and 178. Exceptions were 595183, 186, 190, 194, 196, 201, 202, 203, 205, 210, 212, 219, 236 that were produced in 1963. Not produced were 595245, 397 and 414.
If you look at Fusi in his book 'Alfa Romeo, Tutte le Vetture dal 1910' published in 1978 by Emmeti Grafica Editrice, the following chassis- and enginenumbers are known:
1963: 595001 up to 595178 with engine 00516.00001 up to 00516.00178
1964: 595179 up to 595501 with engine 00516.00179 up to 00516.00501
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
