As part of my research on buying a Super recently, I tried to make some sense of the various years and models made. I prepared the attached Excel chart to help sort it out. It was largely based on the book, Alfa Romeo Catalogue Raisone, edited by Altieri, Lurani & Puttini, and the Berlina Register's "All About the Alfa Romeo Giulia Sedan" (credit to Andrew). Plus that 2 page comparison diagram (posted before here). Note that I tried to translate the text under the illustrations from Italian to English but it's spotty using Google Translate (if anyone can fill in the Google errors let me know).
There are some inconsistencies between the two cited main resources and some gaps in information. One example is the lack of any discussion I can find on Biscione trim packages that arose on a recent thread.
I have included all the mentioned references in this post so it is all together in one place. Perhaps it could be a Sticky some day if useful? Perhaps you have others to post?
I would like to throw this table out for some peer review and discussion and update where needed, or at least annotation of different information. If you have any suggestions or mark-ups, PM or e-mail me and I'll send you my e-mail address.
A Super Newbie, Bruce
