1970 1300 TI Info
George, you shame me; I put this in the picture thread when it should go here, so a double post (in both). Again, this is NOT my car, I just had a chance to closely inspect it. It is all stock except for the Alfetta 2L and 4.10 diff and a few small mechaincal items. B
I ran into a nice '70 1300 TI recently. Don't see many on this side of the pond. Of the ~560k Giulia TI & Super sedans made, some ~144k were 1300 TI's made from 66-72 - about 25% ! Notably, with the 28k Giulia 1300 Berlinas and 115k Giulia 1300 Supers, slightly over 50% were 1300's!
The one I ran into had a fresh warm (10.4 Borgos) 2L and 4.10 rear end, and dual Delorto DHLA40H's. It really scoots! It was exceptionally clean, unmolested and rust-free. This specimen had single circuit Ate power assisted brakes, floor mounted pedals, and a hydraulic clutch, and a ZF steering box.
The 1300 TI (105.39) was a downscale model trim wise, besides just having the 1300 with a 5.12:
- 3 bar grill vs. five
- two vs four headlamps
- the smaller TI tail lights
- no exterior trim appointments as with most early 1600 Supers and TI's (window gutter trim, hood spear, Bollino d'Oro badge, rocker spears, and more on Bisciones)
- no underhood light
- no cigarette lighter in the ashtray
- foot pump not connected to wipers
- rubber floor mats
- no A-pillar kick panel floor vents
- Formica wood dash trim with no apparent radio cut out and no blanking plate
- black plastic around gauges and no clock, like the 1600S, oil and water incorporated into tach & speedo, fuel in the middle
- no 1/4 light winder but latches
- no brightwork around interior light switch, like the Unificata 72-74 Supers later
But it had some holdover items form the earlier, pre-MY68 TI's and Supers which are arguably nicer:
- the full front bucket seats with no center tray, 3 switches on lower left as with 65-67 Supers
- umbrella handbrake
- smaller exterior door handles
- fine fluted interior door/window handles
- this sample had the front thin profile stainless bumper (reportedly the rare "Ilea") with the profile of the early Supers but in stainless, but with the later larger boxy over-riders but with cutout to fit these (the rear was standard post 67)
- stainless steel headlamp bezels
And some features are just neutral:
- welded door hinges (like they kept a stash of TI bodies for these)
- hydraulic clutch
Other features to my eye are in-line with period Supers.
- Ate brakes with single boster
These are enchanting sedans with a Zen-like simplicity that highlights the basics - the body form and car function with no spunk - as the article above and these pictures capture. This car had some non-standard features such as window gutter/A&C-pillar trim added and some nice tweed carpet mats. As well as the drive train upgrades. This one is a wolf in sheep's clothing now.
Enjoy the tour!
