Photos of 750/101 engine compartments only

I'm always searching around for engine compartment photos, they are mixed in lots of posts and hard to find.

I thought it would be nice to start a post where the only thing that gets posted is engine compartment photos. Maybe people would like to post before & after photos of restored engine compartments.

I'll start it off with mine. This is a 1963 Giulia Spider Normale mostly original engine compartment.

What a great idea! If I had an engine, I'd post my photos!
Seriously, being well into a restoration, I'm always looking for engine compartment photos. Thanks.

I know this is not the best "engine compartment" picture, but let me explain. What it is, is a picture, just this last week, of the engine in my '59 Sprint running, for the first time in 30+ years! All credit goes to Karen at Alfa West!

(The oil cap in the picture is only temporary until the real one returns from the chrome shop).

Here is a recent picture of the engine compartment of my '57 Sprint. I'm hoping it will look much better in a few weeks!

OK, here's are a couple of underhood shots of my Giulia "abnormale". I know, it isn't concours, the Wieand air filters aren't correct, there's some oil on the camcover, etc. But I built it close to 20 or so years ago, and while I might do things differently today, I'm not about to change it. And, it is fun to drive!

Now and then I notice those missing parts on e-bay. Interesting that over the years these parts were all removed, and today they are all gradually being replaced. Looks good!

Hi Gordon,

If you are referring to my car, I have those missing parts now and they are on the car, incl. the yellow stickers and correct clamps on the carb air hoses, its just the photo is about 7-8 years old now. Will come up with the complementary pic soon.

Gordon,
Maybe you could explain (for those of us who don't know) just exactly what an AUSCA Veloce Spider was? It appears to have dual spark plugs per cylinder. I assume it was for racing. How about some top down photos?


By the way, I happy to see people posting about their engines. I think It's nice to scroll through & just see engines!!

How about some of you guys with modifications??

Thanks
Larry McKeough

Scott, is the cam cover done in the hammertone paint, or is it polished?
It looks great!

Here are three photos of the engine compartments of my three Giuliettas. From top to bottom: ’59 101 Sprint, ’62 101 Spider and ’60 Series 2 Berlina.

The Spider is a transition car, a Giulietta with a Giulia body shell (chassis numbers 370001 to 371096). Thus the voltage regulator and relays have been moved forward to accommodate the Giulia air cleaner, but since the car is a Giulietta, it has the conventional Giulietta air cleaner. It took me a long time to understand this.

Yes, the Berlina’s valve cover looks rather grungy, but the is no way I’m going to mess around with that 50 year old hammertone paint.
